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.
