Mortal Sins By Immortal Men

Why Bapu Asaram is Still Behind Bars?


                                                                                     Bapu by Newswala



The bureaucracy, the legislature and Judiciary of any country when determines to harass any citizen of that country, they always succeed by making a mountain of a molehill. The story of religious head Bapuji is almost similar. It was pre decided to harass him and then a case was fabricated. Bapu like an innocent child walked into a trap. Wilbur Smith in his adventure stories of South Africa has described a similar trap used by Zulu tribes.

Enough has been written about the case. The details of the incident, efforts made by the police to prove the charges and appearance of national level advocate to defend Bapu, many petitions by a defense lawyer, violent demonstration of followers and disciples have remained the headlines of the newspapers for long. But nothing seems to be working. Every time Bapu was brought to court, huge mass gathered around Jail and Court, and Newspapers flashed pictures of Bapu, sometime gloomy and pleading mercy, sometime jovial and fully confident that nothing bad could happen to him.

Bapu is accused of sexually molesting a minor girl. That girl was a student of one of the many charity institutions run by Bapu and his follower. The girl was brought to the private chamber of Bapu for cure by tantric rituals. Her parents who were staunch follower of Bapu were sitting outside. They had given implied consent for treatment. Read more about such tantric rituals in Maya.

All religious institutions all over the world are accused of corruption from time to time. Often we hear the same thing about churches. The priest and clergy are accused of the same crimes as levied against various Gurus and Mahant (Head of a sect). If the Government or King runs a campaign to clear the corruption of all religious institutions by enacting laws and constituting commissions for all religious bodies, it could be appreciated by the common man. But when some isolated people are targeted  and made to suffer, the society does not approve of it. The ruling party or Kings have always supported a particular religion or sect to gain political strength. Politics is like a prostitute, it has no character. The political ideology becomes secondary when the leader of ruling party wants to weaken the radical forces within his own party. The cost is the life of a scapegoat and that scapegoat is Bapuji.

Andrew Greeley was an American Roman Catholic priest. He wrote many novels exposing the corruption in churches. He said his books are ”less erotic than the Song of Songs in the scriptures."[He insisted that from what they heard in confession from women, priests probably knew more about marriage than most married men; and he drew on this knowledge to write a marital advice book he called Sexual Intimacy (1988). The Priestly Sins (2004), a novel about a young priest who is exiled to an insane asylum and then to an academic life because he reports abuse that he has witnessed. Bollywood movie SINS was inspired by a true incident. The Catholic Priest of a small village in Kerala exploits a young student of Nursing College to quench his lust. The movie was banned to appease the Christian community and due to explicit scenes.

Louise Kretzschmar  in her paper presented in Church Ethics Commission has raised the issue that “Do religious leaders teach the people in power- be it political, business or religious, to resist the temptation  of greed, corruption and selfish behavior.

All religious heads are human being though they are expected to behave as superhuman. There is nothing wrong with it. How a religious head would be different from a common man, if he too falls to temptation.

The protection of children from sexual offenses (POCSO) Act 2012 is elaborate act and covers all aspects. The said Act defines a child as any person below eighteen years of age, and defines different forms of sexual abuse, including penetrative and non-penetrative assault, as well as sexual harassment and pornography, and deems a sexual assault to be “aggravated” under certain circumstances, such as when the abused child is mentally ill or when the abuse is committed by a person in a position of trust or authority vi's-à-is the child, like a family member, police officer, teacher, or doctor. Read about legitimate violation of the act in "The Old Man".  

The birth certificate is issued by local bodies like Municipal Corporation in urban areas and Gram Panchayat in rural areas. Since two out of five births takes place at home the medical certificate is not mandatory to obtain a birth certificate. Some modern scientific techniques must be adopted to ascertain the age of victim. The birth certificate is not authentic proof of age in this country.

According to a report Devdasi System is still prevalent in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana provinces of India. It may be prevalent in other state also. It is socially accepted exploitation system of minor girls by priests in the name of religion. Are we able to stop that? Does the law of the land applies on them? Or they have some different set of rules.

The Bapu did not rape the girl. Medical Examination has proved that. If properly argued the bail is imminent in this case.

  2. ये कांग्रेस की चाल थी और बहुत ही सोच समझ कर ये केस बापू पर लगाया है। इसके पीछे कई क्रिस्चियन मिशनरीज का भी हाथ है। पूज्य बापूजी हिन्दू धर्म के मुख्य स्तम्ब थे , है और रहेंगे और ये केवल पूज्य बापूजी पर ही लागे जूठे दाग नही है परंतु हमारे हिन्दू धर्म पर, सत्य पर और स्नातन संस्कृति की छवि धूमिल करने का एक निंदनीय तथा घटिया किस्म का कांग्रेस द्वारा लगाया गया जूठा आरोप था।

    परंतु बादलो के पीछे सूर्य कितनी देर छुप सकता है।सत्य परेशांन जरूर हो सकता है परंतु पराजित कदापि नही।

    मेरे गुरुदेव पूज्य आशाराम जी बापू निर्दोष है और पूरी दुनिया उनका यशोगान करेगी।

    देखते रहना। ॐ

  4. A well studied, analyzed and unbiased piece of read. Presently when #Asaram Bapuji case is being mostly talked garnished with the media fed false stories, such a courage to cut the stream and speak out the truth is extremely appreciated.

    Sir you have amazingly sensed the entire picture of a vicious game on an innocent Hindu Saint which is strongly reflected in your lines-"It was pre decided to harass him and then a case was fabricated. Bapu like an innocent child walked into a trap."

    Noted Jurist and senior leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy too has asserted it repeatedly-"Entire Case is bogus and Bail is the fundamental right of Asaram Ji Bapu".

    This article not only unveils the falsity of the case, but it beautifully tells about the ironic saga of the So -called Hindutwavadi ruling party's attitude towards such cases.

    A too shrewd story about the priests in churches and media's silence on it is also a bitter truth shared here with ample facts!
    Countless politicians, industrialists and other celebrities are drenched into unfair accumulation of wealth.. but why no one ever bothers to open their financial accounts and make it public? Why only religious organizations with numerous charitable services, that too only of one or two Hindu Gurus are on the target? All these issues are the terrifying facts in a Hindu country like ours. And this write up points that well!

    Asaram Bapuji case is apparently bogus and a well planned conspiracy . Truth will prevail soon.. thanks and kudos Sir for sharing the other side of the story which #presstitutes NEVER SHARE!

  8. Carore's of young and well educated people's like me still following Bapuji. Many are on Doctors, IPS, IAS and others important post. They know he is the only one they will die for. They didn't describe in words what bapuji gave them. They just waiting for bapuji and say "om om om bapuji jaldi bahar aoo"

  12. Thanks for this unbiased details...
    When all the facts are known and available, everyone knows the Truth, still why does the judiciary drag the case for nothing? Why does it not give bail to Sant Shree Asaram Bapu Ji and declare the entire case as fabricated (proof is very much there for each and every false points mentioned and stories created by the girls team)? The girls team could not prove even a sinlge (false) point (when it is false, the word proving it is meaningless, however) mentioned in FIR? Why not initiate severe action against them for the false allegations on great Saint, who has dedicated his life for the upliftment for the entire humanity and far far beyond our thinking capabilities...? Why can't the judiciary order for arrest of the culprits and conspirators (who have been revealed by Bholanand etc...; Dr. Subramanian Swamy, Shri Ashok Singhal openly told the name of those involved and working against Bharat Desh and Saints to media many times) and subject them to highest punishment as per the law? All that has happened and is happening, in the bogus fabricated case conspired on Pujya Sant Shri Asaram Bapu Ji, certainly very badly degrades the value of Judiciary in the eyes and belief of the common man, for sure, which the judiciary would not appreciate, but has created the image on its own (or at the behest of ???).

  13. This case is no different than the Tilak Nagar Jasleen Kaur and Sarabjeet Singh case. Only difference is that in Tilak Nagar case, eye witness came forward immediately, while in this case, there is no eye witness and POSCO law is misused. As 87% of sexual molestation FIR's are later found fake, this case and the two year long jail for an innocent individual seems possibly only in a third world nation. As followers of Asaram Bapu says, 'Bapu can take care of crore disciples, while crore disciples cannot take care of one Bapu".

  14. Very well analyzed article Sir. Thank you for putting up Blog post.
    Actually one really needs a sense of Logic to observe the whole case especially the general masses who have been convinced against Bapuji , his followers and as well as his organization during last 4-5 years slowly in various false allegations.

    The generalized mind-control of population through a storyline containing continuous blatant lies while showing a totally passive image of a person is what has been done in his case. This was also termed as Media model of MASS-BRAINWASHING by one of Researchers.

    Someday Truth will definitely come out. ||dharmo rakshati rakshitah||
