Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar courted controversy with his statement that being homosexual is a tendency that may change later.

"Making sarcastic remarks and questioning its integrity are unwarranted", BJP leader S Prakash told ANI.

Last month, Sri Sri had met Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board Chief Wasim Rizvi in Bengaluru regarding the issue, with Rizvi informing the media that his meeting with the spiritual leader was " very positive".

Earlier, Owaisi had said, "All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has clearly stated that they would not accept any such offer".

"We welcome efforts of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar".

According to reports, the two parties Nirmohi Akhada and All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) had roped in Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to pitch for an out of court settlement in the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid issue.

Sri Sri said that he was doing it at his own will and was not mediating under the influence by the government.

He asserted, "If any positive development and outcome can be expected of this dialogue, one should welcome it".

The Supreme Court on March 21 suggested an out-of-court settlement of the land dispute at Ayodhya, observing that issues of "religion and sentiments" can be best resolved through talks. It will then be presented in Supreme Court as UP Shia Central Waqf Board's stance when the day-to-day hearing of the case begins on December 5.

The Babri Masjid was built by Mughal Emperor Babar in 1528.

"Lord Rama is the matter of faith for crores of Hindus.the idol is installed at his birthplace and puja is continuously going on.no power can shift it anywhere else", he said, adding that the matter of the Ram Janmbhoomi temple will be discussed in the 15th "Dharam Sansad" in Karnataka between November 24 to 26.
