Bareilly, (Uttar Pradesh) [India] Mar. 06 (ANI): Clarifying his statement on India turning into Syria, spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar on Tuesday said that was a word of caution, not of a threat.

"Woh dhamki thodi na hai, woh caution hai (It was not a threat, but a word of caution)," he said.

On Monday, the Art of Living founder, in an interview with a leading television channel, had said that any delay in resolving the Ram temple issue could result in a Syria-like situation in India.

"Yahan shanti rehne dijiye. Hamare desh ko Syria jaise nahi banana chahiye (Let peace prevail here. We should not turn our country into Syria)," he said. (ANI)
