Bengaluru, Sept 1: After meeting with Burhan Wani's father, Sri Sri Ravishankar held discussions with a religious preacher, Dr. Ghulam Rasool Hami at the Art of Living ashram.
A tweet by the handle @bangaloreshram read, "Had a detailed discussion with Dr Ghulam Rasool Hami, founder of the Karwan-I-Islami on the Kashmir issue."
Dr Hami is a religious preacher from Kashmir and is considered to be a moderate thinker. The meeting with Sri Sri was held to find a solution on how to bring peace back to the Valley. The Valley has been on the boil for over 50 days now.
Last Sunday, Sri Sri met with Muzzafar Wani, the father of slain militant Burhan Wani. The meeting was a private affair and came into the public eye after a picture of Sri Sri with Wani was posted on Twitter.
Speculations were rife that the meeting was part of the government's track II initiative to find a peaceful solution in Kashmir.
Senior Wani upon his return to his home town in Tral told reporters that he told Sri Sri to come to Kashmir and see the situation himself.
He further said that during his brief interaction with the spiritual guru he was shown a video of the war in Syria. "To this I replied that much worse is taking place in Kashmir and if I had my mobile phone with me, I would have shown videos too," Wani said.
Wani went on to say that after the death of his son, he got a call from Sri Sri and condolences were offered.
"He said he wanted to meet me and then I told that I wanted to come to his ashram for treatment. In the two days that I stayed there, I explained to him the problems in Kashmir," he said.
"I was then asked whom should India talk with on the Kashmir issue. I told him India must talk unconditionally to the representatives of Kashmir. India must talk with Geelani, Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq," Wani said.
