New Delhi: A Jaipur court is likely to hear a case against spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The Art of Living founder had alleged that government schools were breeding grounds for Naxalism. The petitioner wants the court to direct the police to lodge an FIR against the spiritual leader.
"It's often seen that boys from Government schools are into Naxalism and violence. Those from the private education system are not into these things. They move ahead with an ideal (adarsh) and teachers are responsible for it," Sri Sri had said.
"Government should not run any school, it should be given to some other system (samstha)," he added.
His statements come amidst the ongoing Odisha hostage crisis.
