Coimbatore, Aug 18: All India Democratic Women's Association today sought a high-level inquiry into the affairs of Isha Foundation, following several allegations against its functioning.

"Since allegations against the Foundation and Isha Yoga Centre, attached to it, are coming in of late, the Government should call for an inquiry into the functioning of the organisation, so that truth comes out," AIDWA president U Vasuki told reporters here.

Several persons, including a retired professor, had lodged complaints about the Centre, she said. Vasuki, also a CPI-M Central Committee member, said "spiritualism and bhakthi have become commercial now".

A National Commission for Women team had visited the Isha Yoga Centre here yesterday to confirm veracity of letters sent to it by two women sanyasins stating that they were staying in the centre on their own volition and not forcibly as alleged by their parents.
