The Art of Living (AoL) faculty members and volunteers in Pakistan are reportedly receiving threat letters and calls from the Taliban for over 45 days.
The calls and letters accuse the volunteers of ‘conspiring against Islam’. According to a volunteer from Pakistan, “Many youth have given up the path of violence after undergoing the Art of Living programs and this has been perceived to be a threat by the Taliban.”
The authorities in Pakistan have been informed about the threats. The calls first began after March 8 when 15 gunmen vandalised the Art of Living Centre and set it on fire in Bani-Gala on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, he said.
