Hindu psyche shaken: Ravi Shankar

November 13, 2004 21:43 IST

New age guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Saturday said the arrest of Kanchi Shankaracharya had "shaken [the] Hindu psyche" and appealed to the people to not turn it into a communal issue.

"His holiness has appealed to the people to keep calm and not to make the present crisis that Hinduism is going through into a communal issue," the guru's Art of Living Foundation said in a statement from Rishikesh in Uttaranchal.

"Saints cannot even think of committing such a crime. At a time when such an accusation has been made, all that one can say is that saints should keep a watch on people around them," the statement quoted the spiritual teacher as saying.
