Being a revered spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should have known it, but his effort in trying to bring the barbarians to the peace table is praiseworthy.
Taking to media persons late on April 21 in Agartala, the Art of Living founder said:
“I tried to initiate peace talks with the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) recently but they sent me a photograph of a beheaded body of a man. Thus, my effort for a peace dialogue with the ISIS ended,” he said.
And this wisdom dawned upon the guru:
Such efforts are more likely to bear fruit because militants in the northeast are not the Islamic State.
