Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has amassed wealth, wants to avoid probe: Former BJP MP on Ram Mandir issue

New Delhi, Nov 16: Former BJP MP Ram Vilas Vedanti on Thursday questioned Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s offer to mediate the long-simmering Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Mosque dispute, adding that the Art of Living Founder has jumped into the issue to avoid being investigated for his amassed wealth. 

Vedanti said “Who is Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to mediate? He should continue running his NGO & hoarding foreign funds, I believe he has amassed a lot of wealth & to avoid a probe he has jumped into Ram Temple issue”, news agency ANI reports.

His remarks came on the same day, when Ravi Shankar visited Ayodhya to meet all stakeholders involved in the dispute.

However, this is not the first time that Vedanti has criticised the Art of Living Founder offer to mediate into the matter. As earlier he had said Ravi Shankar does not qualify to mediate on the matter as he has never been associated with the movement.

“How can someone who has never been associated with the movement and never had darshan of the Ram Lalla mediate on the matter of temple construction…we have gone to jail for it, faced house arrest and have been fighting court cases …Sri Sri does not qualify to mediate on the matter,” he had said.
