Sri Sri meets Adityanath ahead of Ayodhya visit


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday criticised All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi over his statement against Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, saying that making sarcastic comments and questioning the integrity of a person were not justified. The Supreme Court had however suspended the judgement in 2011. Thirteen different appeals have been filed against Allahabad high court verdict that divided the 2.73 acres disputed land into three parts among Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board, and Nirmohi Akhara. "He (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) should not indulge in any kite flying". "But talks for an out of court settlement will not succeed till Muslim Personal Law Board is involved in talks", said Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangi Mahali, a member of AIMPLB.

Shankar confirmed that he would be visiting Ayodhya and said, "I do not have an agenda in this issue and will listen to everybody during the visit".

Welcoming the statement of the Shia Personal Law Board, Owaisi tweeted, "Ulti hogayee sab tadbeeran".
