Sri Sri Is Dabbling In Kashmir Now, And I’m Not Surprised

As a weekend guest at his ashram in Bengaluru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar could not have asked for anybody as questionable as Muzaffar Wani, the father of Burhan Wani, the Hizbul Mujahideen militant who was shot dead by security forces in J&K on 8 July. The Art of Living guru and Muzaffar are believed to have discussed the current situation of “suffering in the Valley”. And ways to restore “peace and normalcy.” That won’t happen, of course, but I’m not surprised at Sri Sri’s initiative.
