Born in Trivandrum, Mumtaz Ali Khan, who is also known as “Sri M”, was since his childhood inclined towards spirituality and has been helping people in opening their minds to larger dimensions of spirituality and has now published his autobiography titled Apprenticed to A Himalayan Master: A Yogi’s Autobiography which deals with his transformation from Mumtaz Ali Khan to Sri M as he began to acquire deep knowledge of Upanishads. He travels all over the world to share his knowledge about all the religions. He says and believes that we are growing economically but the communal problem still persists in society and says that since religion is being politicised, this is the reason of all communal conflicts and riots. Recently he has set up Sarva Dharm Kendra in Bangalore as a centre for promoting inter-religious harmony. He proposes to build a temple, mosque, gurudwara, church and a Jain temple on a 4 acre plot of land at the outskirts of Bangalore which was gifted to him by one of his friends, which will have a common place for worship where he wants to teach people the best of all the religions.
