Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, of the Art of Living Foundation which focuses on relieving individual stress, societal problems, and violence, made several not-so-nice comments when discussing Malala Yousafzai’s Nobel Prize win.
He was noted to have said to reporters, “Iss larki ne kuch bhi nahin kiya“, and that the Nobel Prize had no value, which is why he rejected it in the past.
But apparently, since then, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has changed his mind, saying he will accept the award if offered.
But that didn’t stop the twitter trolls from digging up some dirt on the Spiritual Guru!
The users clapped back, calling him out on his statements!
Was Malala deserving of Nobel Peace Prize when Sri Square congratulated her?https://t.co/9tKQoUEt4t

With his jealousy for 18 yr old Malala, 59 yr old Sri Sri has once again proved: No amount of ‘Art of Living’ can make you a better person.

Either way, clearing this little misunderstanding will probably be in your best interest Sri Sri Sahib!
