I am not a follower. I didn’t even know he existed (because I was atheist till my research). But I have been doing research on all famous Hindu godmen since the movie pk (because I am a right winger hindu). My results were shocking and for the first time I felt ashamed of not being a good hindu.
ALL THE CASES HAVE BEEN PROVEN FALSE AGAINST ALL OF THEM.
Except for Rampal (he was a congress stooge which was protected by Hooda sarkar), not one has been proven guilty.
Some facts (and not mere opinions)…
Swami Nityanand- sex scandal caught in a CD, sex CD proved to be doctored, court ordered Star Vijay Channel to run an apology every 2 hours for a month
Swami Ramdev- Accused of financial irregularities by Tehelka (yes, the one run by Tejpal the actual rapist), later accused by CPIM for financial irregularities. Nothing happened of his case.
Jayendra Saraswati Shankaracharya- he was charged for murder on one occasion, and attempt to murder on another occasion, was held in jail for 9 months, and proven not guilty. The then govt wanted to lay hands on 83 kg of gold in the treasury of a big temple (don’t remember name). This is the case where Asaram defiantly campaigned in favor, and came under notice of the anti-nationals.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim SIngh Insan- allegations of involvement in a shootout, when that didn’t work, accusations of rape and murder (by guess who? Tehelka again, i.e. Tejpal). Even those didn’t work, no a case of force castration is being raised (oh, btw, his movie was stopped by the censor board yesterday, any seculars tom-toming freedom of speech here??)
Sathya Sai Baba- again cases of rape and paedophilia, due to extremely massive public support, they were not pursued further. However since his demise, a variety of cases have cropped up.
Sadhvi Pragya Singh- Languishing in jail since 10th October 2008. Has NEVER BEEN TAKEN TO COURT FOR TRIAL FOR 6 FRIGGING YEARS!!!! That makes it illegal to keep her jailed for 6 years but nobody knows because we are modern people busy in achieving modern and scientific dreams.
Finally, Swami Asaram Bapu- Again falsely kept in for more than 1.5 years now, there is no legal case of rape (article 376), not even of sexual assault since the beginning (lamba, the police head involved from jaipur has said this himself, it’s a video footage, not even text. He IS IN JAIL EVEN THOUGH THE OFFENSE IS BAILABLE. Stings of all people that are shown are those people who have been kicked out for frauds within the sansthan.
When media said he was hiding for 2 days, HE WAS VISITING THE FUNERAL OF HIS SON’S FATHER-IN-LAW WHO DIED AFTER FASTING FOR 2 DAYS AFTER HE HEARD THE NEWS ALLEGATIONS.
It’s THE CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES COMBINED WITH CORPORATES WHO RUN LOSSES DUE TO SPIRITUAL HEALING AND GIVING UP OF SUBSTANCES BY THE FOLLOWERS.
What is common in all cases?
1. All of them some way or the other affect corporations, schools, doctors, spirit industries, etc.
- All of them (except Sai Baba) have crossed swords with Sonia Gandhi somewhere in life. Asaram has been the most open and defiant challenger.
Media shreds them to pieces doctoring allegations, but never shows their acquittal.
However, despite being proven not guilty, all of them have faced reduced support in one way or the other. This can be further proved by the massive support to pk by hindus.
PK’s premise is that don’t believe in godmen in search of god because godmen are fake. THIS PREMISE ITSELF IS PROVED WRONG AS WE CAN SEE.
Moreover, technically speaking, any person who is a devotee to them can vouch, the godmen do not teach way to god, they teach WAY OF LIFE! Not much difference one may counter, but anybody who understands psychology will tell there is a MASSIVE difference.
Finally, I never went to godmen till now. But when Asaram comes out, I will.
Being scientific minded and modern that we are, you may not believe me. This is a report on the Asaram Case. If you are moved by it (it was an eye opener for me), please share it wherever you can.
We are Hindus in India, we should be ashamed of our counterparts who are NRIs. It’s only after you live in a foreign land, away from your own people, that you understand the value of having an identity, the need to identify yourself uniquely, to be connected to the roots, to be Hindu.
I hope you can draw your own conclusions. I have more to say. Ask me to edit if you want.
