President hails Sri M’s efforts to spread peace


New Delhi, Feb 19: Social reformer Sri M, who is leading a pan-India padayatra to promote inter-faith harmony in the country, met President Pranab Mukherjee in the capital today.

At the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President interacted with the 67-year-old spiritual guide and the volunteers of his 16-month Kanyakumari-Srinagar ‘Walk of Hope’ march, and lauded the team’s effort to spread the message of peaceful coexistence that is central to India’s age-old plurality.

Mr Mukherjee, during the 30-minute meeting, received the first of the Bengali translation of Sri M’s autobiography ‘Apprenticed to a Himalayan master—A Yogi’s Autobiography’.

The 7,500-km walk with 70 volunteers, which started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on January 12 last year, has been reaching out to millions of people, with Sri M (born Mumtaz Ali Khan in Thiruvananthapuram) meeting top administrators, influential leaders and the common people besides visiting religious places of various faiths and delivering public talks.

The walk will conclude after 500 days of journey in early May this year, while the Delhi leg is slated to end on March 3.
