After cutting short his speech, spiritual guru and Art of Living (AoL) founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who was addressing at a seminar titled ‘Paigham-e-Mohabbat’, left the session midway amidst uproar by the audience at SKICC in Srinagar.
According to reports, some of the people who had come from several districts including Shopian, Pulwama, Budgam were made to sit for long hours without any food and water by the organisers.
Some of the audience even left the seminar halfway as they alleged that they were told that Pakistani diplomat will also attend the seminar, but did not.
Meanwhile, Sri Si Ravi Shankar in his speech said that the event named Paigham-e-Mohabbat (message of love) was aimed to heal the hearts and bring about reconciliation among people who have directly suffered in the long-drawn conflict in Jammu & Kashmir.
The seminar was organised by little-known Jammu Kashmir Coordination Committee (JKCC) and despite tensions in the Valley after the recent killings in Shopian, the organisers managed to gather impressive audience for the seminar.
