Mumbai: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of Art of Living, recently courted controversy when he suggested that Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner who stood up for girl education, did not deserve the award.

Twinkle Khanna, known for her witty sense of humour, commented on the controversy and wrote, "Sri Sri got his noble foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago. #HolyMenandHairyTales"

 

However, what was meant to be a joke, didn't go down well with Art of Living fans. Darshak Hathi, the International Director of the Art of Living Foundation, also took aim at the columnist and tweeted, “Millions of followers r going 2 boycott #Houseful3 4 hurting the sentiments by inappropriate and ill intended comments f @mrsfunnybones on Sri Sri.”

Twinkle then replied, “Didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings was meant to be a joke and am old enough to accept an error of judgement on my part.”.

 

This didn't go down well with Darshak, who then wrote, “Error of Judgement or Fear of #BoycottHousefull3. Anyway Being Old & Being wise is different thing."

Twinkle, who was definitely not going to take it lying down said, “Art of living teacher practising Art of intimidation? Didn't like my joke diss me-drag my husband,boycott etc #Shame”

To this the AOL International Director replied, “@mrsfunnybones My tweet was in respond to your tweet which has hurt my sentiments. I appreciate that you have gracefully deleted it and @mrsfunnybones It happens when sentiments are hurt. No Hard feeling. Sorry if you r hurt.”

 

Scores of Twitterati came out in support of Twinkle Khanna and here's what they had to say.
