New Delhi: The Home Ministry today directed concerned agencies to increase the security of spiritual Guru and founder of Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar following a death threat from Pakistan's terror group Tehreek-e-Taliban.
According to reports, Art of living centre received two threat letters from TTP warning of a blast which will kill several followers.
The fresh threat has come almost a month after events planned by Art of Living in Pakistan for the International Yoga Day were cancelled following threats by extremists.
An Art of Living centre on the outskirts of the Pakistan's capital Islamabad was set in flames allegedly by the Taliban last year.
Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had visited Pakistan in 2012 and inaugurated the centre for his Art of Living movement. He had also offered to hold talks with the Taliban to usher in peace in the region, saying it would help foster understanding among people with divergent views.
In March this year, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar received death threats from the terror group ISIS while he was touring in Malaysia. In a letter to the manager of Hotel Jen, the group warned that the hotel would be destroyed and he would be killed if he is allowed to carry out "Hindu activities" in the country.
The letter alleged that the guru claims himself "as non-religious" person but he is "meddling in Islamic affairs".
