Sadhguru Performed An Illegal Act

Sadhguru is a world-famous influencer and yogi. He has a large area covered in a hill as Isha Foundation, where people meet and talk to him. 

The area is so much big and is surrounded by jungle. But people often say that Sadhguru has illegally built the foundation. 

The government did not approve of such a great area to build structures. 

Also, it was in the middle of the jungle, so it was a violation of the conservation act. But Sadhguru denied the allegation. 

He said that it was all legally built. He even said he would leave the country if he found guilty of anything.

Sadhguru Was Criticized A Lot

He is always ready to clear out doubts and spread love and positivity. This is the reason that he has a lot of followers and well-wishers.
