New Delhi, May 3, 2016: The trolls trying to run down Sri Sri Ravishankar hoping to see him backtrack on his comments on Malala Yousafzai are in for a rude surprise.

Sri Sri Ravishankar in his latest comments just wrote:

“When truth is bitter and hard to digest, people often mock it. I sincerely welcome all my critics.”

The Hindu spiritual leader who has been working extensively in Latur to resolve water crisis and battling in Middle East to bring peace to the region (and has already been threatened by Islamic State for doing so) had earlier told ANI News that Malala did not do anything to win the prize.

Watch Sri Sri Ravishankar speak:



Sri Sri Ravishankar’s organization Art of Living is involved in the Jal Jagruti Abhiyaan which has revived 17 rivers across India out of which 13 are in Maharashtra.

The Art of Living will also spend 105 crores on river rejuvenation in drought-hit Maharashtra.

Sri Sri Ravishankar with his comments may have simply put what was their on the minds of several over her winning the award considering that she won it with none other than Kailsah Satyarthi who had years of works behind him to show while the teen had none. This is one critique that none can refute.

Malala was also criticized when she condemned Donald Trump over his Muslim ban remarks and even said that blaming Muslims for terrorism will only radicalize more to take to terrorism. However, she is not much liked in Pakistan, her home country, as she is seen as being too pro-West and her apparent political ambitions in Pakistan has also made her a not-so-likeable figure.

In many interviews she had said that she would want to become the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Malala Yousafzai was a teen Pakistani blogger who survived being shot by the Taliban when she was 14 years of age. Post her survival she became a toast in the Western circles for her activism in the field of children education and landed a Nobel Peace Prize, along with Kailash Satyarthi, in the year 2014.
