Ambani issue: Morari Bapu not to mediate

December 06, 2004 20:04 IST

Religious preacher Morari Bapu has ruled out mediating between the Ambani brothers Mukesh and Anil over the Reliance ownership issue and said he would pray for the siblings to resolve their disputes in an amicable manner.

"I have no intentions of mediating in the dispute between the Ambani brothers, but will definitely pray for them so that they are able to resolve their problems on their own," he told reporters in reply to a question.

"The Ambani brothers' mother Kokilaben had met me some time ago to invite me for rendering a religious discourse at their house in Mumbai early next year," Bapu said, adding that she had not sought his intervention for resolving the ongoing tussle between her two sons.

On the arrest of the Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati, the religious preacher declined to comment when asked if Tamil Nadu government was justified in arresting the seer in connection with a murder case, but said that the 'law should take its own course.'

Bapu said the Shankaracharya 'should have been treated in a dignified manner in keeping with his stature as a religious leader.'
