MONTREAL: Spiritual leader His Holiness Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar strongly condemned the serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad and Bangalore saying that the Indian people cannot tolerate such violent acts of terrorism any more. In a statement from Montreal, Canada, he called upon all community leaders to help maintain peace and calm.

"Police alone cannot do much to check violent terror attacks," he said.

In the wake of the terror groups Indian Mujahideen and HuJI claiming responsibility for the recent blasts, he called upon Muslim leaders to play a proactive role and isolate the misguided elements spreading terror in the name of religion.

Emphasising that violence in society cannot be justified under any circumstances he has appealed to all to maintain peace and calm
