Naxals are not bad, they are victims of injustice: Sri Sri

| | Raipur/Jagdalpur | in Raipur

The youths siding with the Naxals are not bad. They are victims of injustice and are fighting their own battle, opined Sri Sri Ravishankar, the Founder of Art of Living while interacting with media persons in Jagdalpur on Saturday.

Notably Sri Sri Ravishankar had earlier also proposed to act as interlocutor for conducting talks with Naxals, which was turned down by the insurgents. 

Talking to reporters, he appealed to Naxals for shunning the path of violence and join the path of 'Bhakti' so that the country could be lead towards a right direction. “Guns cannot solve any problem, talks are necessary for it,” said Sri Sri Raivshankar.    

Earlier talking to reporters in Raipur over Asaram Bapu's arrest, he said nobody is above law and if he has really committed any crime then he should be brought to book.

The acclaimed spiritual leader was of the view that if Asaram is found innocent then stringent action should be taken against the people involved in distorting his image.

When asked whether the incident of Asaram Bapu has not tarnished the image of religious leaders in India, he categorically denied by saying that only one incident is not enough to call all the Gurus as wrong.

Sri Sri Ravishankar further said that youths of Chhattisgarh are very  hard working and they have proved it while conducting the relief works during floods in Bihar and the natural disaster in Uttarakhand.

Sri Sri Ravishankar also praised the development works done by Gujrat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and said that the leader has done commendable work in making Gujarat’s villages free from pollution besides enriching the life of the people.
