Bangalore: Art of Living Founder Sri Sri Ravishankar today refuted allegations of land grabbing by AOL and said it would firmly deal with "anti-social elements" trying to "lay a trap" for extortion.

"We are compassionate but are very firm in dealing with anti-social elements. We will not budge or fall into the trap of miscreants. These tactics of threat and hiding behind fictitious stories will not work," he said in a statement.

A city-based journalist, who had alleged land grabbing by AOL, has filed a police complaint against Ravishankar and the other ashramites for accusing him of making extortion calls.

The Art of Living has spent crores of rupees for the welfare and relief of the poor and can never think of doing injustice to anyone ever, Ravishankar said.

He said the land in question was bought by the AOL legally verifying all documents.

"We would urge the police to take action against such forces who try to bring disharmony and thrive on false propagation," Ravishankar said.
