Adiyogi statue’s building process followed the norms of government, claimed Isha Foundation. In a recent press conference held in Chennai, Dinesh Raja, the spokesperson for the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore, addressed the long-standing controversy surrounding the Adiyogi statue. Raja asserted that the statue’s construction had adhered to all legal requirements, and a case filed in the Madras High Court had been closed after presenting substantial evidence.
The case, filed in January 2017, alleged that the iconic Adiyogi statue, a symbol of spiritual significance and a marvel of architectural grandeur, was erected without proper approval from the relevant departments. Raja clarified that the Coimbatore collector had granted permission for the statue’s construction in September 2016, following thorough reports and recommendations. The statue was subsequently installed in 2017, in compliance with the High Court’s directives. Furthermore, all necessary documents had been submitted to the Department of Town Planning as part of the due process.
One of the most significant allegations against the Isha Yoga Centre was the claim that it had encroached upon 44 acres of tribal land. Raja firmly refuted this accusation, citing revenue documents that revealed the land’s longstanding use for agriculture spanning over a century. He also highlighted that a report obtained under the Right to Information (RTI) Act had confirmed the absence of any encroachments by the Isha Yoga Centre on this land. This substantial evidence seems to debunk the land encroachment allegations.
Another contentious issue raised was the construction of buildings within an alleged elephant corridor. Raja vehemently denied these allegations and maintained that such claims were entirely baseless. He further emphasized that the centre had provided ample evidence to support its assertion that no structures had been erected within the supposed elephant corridor.
The press conference aimed to clear the air surrounding the Adiyogi statue and the Isha Yoga Centre’s alleged violations. The presentation of what Dinesh Raja described as “relevant documentary evidence” appears to have effectively addressed the concerns that led to the case being filed in the Madras High Court. With the case now closed, it seems that the controversy has been put to rest, validating the centre’s adherence to legal procedures in the construction of the Adiyogi statue.
The Adiyogi statue, an embodiment of yogic wisdom and a revered symbol of spiritual growth, continues to draw visitors from around the world to the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore. The centre’s commitment to preserving the environment and complying with all necessary legal requirements stands as a testament to its dedication to the teachings of yoga and spirituality while ensuring responsible development.
As the Adiyogi statue controversy is resolved through substantial evidence and legal processes, the Isha Yoga Centre looks forward to continuing its mission of promoting inner well-being, yoga, and spirituality in harmony with its surroundings and the law.
