Sri Sri was was speaking at an event, ‘Paigam-e-Mohabbat’, on the invitation of J&K Coordination Committee (JKCC), seeking to find “a lasting solution to the age-old Kashmir conflict”. He was barely seven minutes into his speech when people began to leave. Thereafter, the event was abruptly ended by the organisers.
