Muzaffar Ahmad Wani, father of slain Hizb-ul-Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani while clarifying his “non-involvement” in direct or indirect political process under track-II diplomacy claims to have advised Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, an influential Hindu spiritual guru, to impress upon the Union government to initiate a multilateral dialogue with Pakistan, Hurriyat Conference and the representatives of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh regions of the Jammu & Kashmir state.

Notably, Ravi Shankar tweeted a picture of him with Muzaffar Wani late Saturday evening. The picture went viral on the social networking site creating abuzz in local and political circles.

Wani said that he told Shankar, “one of his sons was killed in custody and another one being a militant was destined to die in an encounter one day or the other.”

When his cell phone started instantly buzzing with calls from media, Wani said that he had a co-incidental meet with Shankar for “3-4 minutes”.

Muzaffar Wani is a Principal of 1+2 Government run school.

He said he made it clear to Ravi Shankar that Delhi/Mumbai based media is not portraying the “real picture” of Kashmir before the people of India as the current phase of struggle “is non-violent but not part of the armed struggle in Kashmir”.

Wani said, “I had gone for treatment to Sri Sri Rama Hospital Bengaluru as I had sought an appointment with the hospital three months back but could not go there during holy Ramzan. I was scheduled to go to the hospital for treatment but could not go there after the death of my son, Burhan Wani. I preferred to spent time in Ashram than in a hospital just for the purposes of security of my life. I incidentally had an opportunity to talk to Hindu influential spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the Ashram. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had also condoled the death of Burhan on the very first day”.

Sri Sri Rama Hospital is an Ayurvedic medicare facility.

Claiming that the local population in Bengaluru even accused Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of giving a shelter to the “father of a terrorist”, Muzaffar Wani said, “Sri Sri Ravi Shankar asked me to suggest something for restoration of peace in Kashmir. Just in my individual capacity, I advised him to impress upon the Union government to initiate a multilateral dialogue with Pakistan, Hurriyat Conference and the representatives of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh regions of the Jammu & Kashmir state. I also made it clear that current phase of struggle in non-violent and not part of armed struggle.”

Muzaffar Wani told KNS that he talked to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar just in an individual capacity and told him that being an influential Hindu leader he can portray the real picture of Kashmir before the people of India.

“I told him that he is a better person to portray the real picture of Kashmir and should tell the people in India about the ground realities of Kashmir,” Wani said.
