@Zurman1

My analysis is not based on just one video , as you say, of a few freaks. But based on hard facts.

Here are a few of them....

Egypt’s oil peaked in 1996, and the nation is now a net oil importer

The nation’s debt is around 89.5 per cent of GDP

Its population – 27.8 million in 1960 and currently estimated at 79.94 million – is set to double each 35 years

Self-sufficient in food in 1960, the nation is dependent of food imports, which are currently at a record high price

Today forty per cent of Egyptians live below the UN poverty line of less than £2 a day.

And the recent fuel shortages set the food prices soaring and the society on the brink of anarchy...

Here are a few news items

As the dates show, the problem has been persistent over a long period.

And that set off this revolution....

And what do those 'freaks' see as the cause of the revolution? Fellow Muslims, Christians and all those who are opposed to Brotherhood! If that does not set off alarm bells, I don't know what will

Here is a rejoinder from Art of Living Bureau of Communication

Dear Editor,

In reference to Mr. John Dayal's article on countercurrents.org ( A Reminder To The Sage Of Bengaluru dated Mar 31,2012) we would like to say that:

It is unfortunate that such an ill-informed & ignorant article has been published on your website. It displays the author's lack of responsibility toward the public by presenting a biased view with wrong/partial data & reeks of prejudice against Hinduism & the so-called the 'Upper Class'.

Sri Sri is running 185 free schools across India with the very intention of ensuring that the premises of the Right to Education Act are covered. These schools reach out to over 24,000 children who would not have otherwise had access to education and who come from the most economically and socially backward sections of society. Out of these 185 schools, 50 are in the Naxal belts of India.
