In a blog article I wrote about DFs. Sri sri Ravishankar, who is an esteemed member of any list comprising of DFs, established once again his credentials. His first public display of DF-ness was during his debate with Mr. Naik. Now he does it again. On a recent controversy, our SSR spoke to the media, and I quote:
Speaking to the media after the meeting, Sri Sri said, ''I told them that Vande does not just mean puja or prayer but also means thanksgiving. The first lines of Vande Mataram are not objectionable in any way. This issue should not be given more importance. The country is above all and there should be no rift between the Hindu and Muslims.'' Quoting a Supreme Court judgement, Sri Sri also said no one should be pressurised to sing Vande Mataram.
I hope some Sanskrit scholar clarifies on the matter. But SSR is a DF. No doubts about that.
