It can go to nuclear bomb if it helps establish peace in AfPak. Why is writer creating a stir to create pieces out of peace?

He is a champion of interfaith harmony around the world, has been working tirelessly to bring people of different faiths together through spirituality. His wisdom and practical techniques to bring peace appeals to people from all backgrounds. He is a master of resolving conflicts, skillfully bringing opposing groups to the negotiating table (Jammu & Kahmir – Pandits, government & Hurriyat, Sri Lanka, Rajasthan caste conflict, Naxalites – many have given up arms and are contesting elections: reported in Wall Street Journal and recent Indian newspapers, conflicting groups in Ivory coast etc), going on peace missions to Pakistan, Iraq and other conflict zones and advocating non-violence as the best tool to achieve justice.One most important reason why I think Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should be given nobel peace prize is that not only he advocates peace but actually provides the techniques for every individual to do that.
