Sri Sri Ravi Shankar the humanitarian and spiritual leader and the founder of Art of Living Foundation has mired in a controversy. This time for his remarks on homosexuality at an event in Delhi. At the Jawaharlal Nehru University, when a student asked Sri Sri as to how he should handle the way his friends and family treated him for his sexual orientation, the spiritual leader said,
“You don’t think you are sick or something is wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you, but…if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.”
“This is your tendency now…know that this tendency is not a permanent thing. It may change. I’ve seen many men who were gay later turn into heterosexuals, and there are those who are normal, who are called straight people, end up being gay later in life.”
These comments by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar haven’t gone down too well with film actress Sonam Kapoor. She took to Twitter and lashed out at him. While she called him a “MORON” in one of her Instagram stories, she wrote off his opinion in a series of tweets.
