Is Sri Sri practising Art of Intimidation, asks Twinkle

Hassled by Ravi Shankar's followers over controversial tweet, actress apologises but wonders whether the spiritual guru is practising Art of Living

As an actress Twinkle Khanna did not amount to much, but Akshay Kumar’s wife, who is a popular columnist in The Times of India, is the rage on social media with her caustic tweets.

Twinkle Khanna created a furore among Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's followers when she slammed the spiritual guru for his comments on last year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. Ravi Shankar had questioned the choice of Malala for the award, saying she didn’t deserve it as all she had done was survive a bullet in the head.

Disappointed by Ravi Shankar's comment, Twinkle Khanna posted a sarcastic tweet:

@mrsfunnybones Sri Sri got his nobel foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic psoe that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago #HolyMenandHairyTales

Slammed by Ravi Shankar's followers, Khanna was quick to apologise.

But the nasty comments by Ravi Shankar's followers continued, upsetting Twinkle Khanna and provoking her to ask whether the spiritual guru was preaching the Art of Intimidation.

One wonders whether Twinkle Khanna’s salvoes will spark another ‘intolerance’ debate.
