Islamic Militant Burhan Wani’s father meets Hindu Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at Bengaluru ashram, discusses path to peace in Kashmir.
Sumithra Iyer | HENB | Bengaluru | Aug 27, 2016:: Muzzafar Wani, the father of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani, whose death has resulted in the non-stop Islamic violence in Kashmir, visited the Art of Living (AoL) HQ in the City.
During the visit, Wani discussed several issues with spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on the ongoing turmoil in Kashmir. This was confirmed by Sri Sri through a tweet on Saturday night, which was retweeted immediately by many.
Wani was accompanied by seven others, sources said. “Muzaffar Wani, the father of Burhan Wani was in the ashram for the last 2 days. We discussed several issues”, Sri Sri said in the tweet accompanied by a picture of Muzzafar Wani and him.
According to sources, Sri Sri is likely to be one of the members in the delegation that is set to visit Kashmir to hold peace talks to arrive at a solution to the turmoil in that state. Kashmir has witnessed more than 70 deaths in the ongoing confrontation between Kashmiris and security forces that began after Burhan Wani was killed. The normalcy of public life in Kashmir valley has been disrupted over 50 days due to law and situation and curfew imposed there. Some 11,000 persons were injured in clashes among protesters and security forces since the killing of Burhan Wani in an encounter.
Wani said he also asked Sri Sri to use his influence in finding a solution to Kashmir problem. “Sri Sri asked me what the people of Kashmir wanted. I asked him to visit the Valley to find out for himself”, he said.
Wani, a teacher by profession, said there should be an unconditional dialogue with the separatists to find a lasting solution to Kashmir problem.
Hindu Guru Ravi Shankar is a famed interlocutor for his endeavor to solve the Kashmir and Maoist militancy problems in India.
Earlier, he worked as an influential mediator for arranging 100 acre area for the Annual Amaranth Yatra pilgrimage in Kashmir.
Though it is difficult to control the Jehadi and Maoist militancy in India in any straight way other than military havoc, this Hindu Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been trying to make any solution of these problems through peace talk, anger control and Sudarshan Kriya.
