Asaram, a Con-Man rather than a Saint

The saint community has been under scrutiny with mine of news playing around about their notorious acts with people who supposedly obey them for nothing. One can look back at U.K. Ananthamurthy’s ‘Samskara’ where the whole Pandit religious clan is satirised for their preaching which remained as old tradition and blindly following rules without any meaningful existence. The author left a question to the humanity that "What is actually culture (Samskara) - is it achieved by blindly following rules and traditions, is it lost when they are not kept?"

The tradition and the rule is decreasing day by day with our present day fraud Babas, one of them is Asaram Bapu. He is one of the culprits who presently portrayed as a conman. His arrest in 1st September 2013, this so called godman might have realised that the austerity of the priestly life is utterly unsuited with his love for sensual and material things.

Asaram Bapu along with his co-accused was arrested for various reasons namely rape, wrongful confinement, human trafficking, intimidation and criminal conspiracy. Under various sections of Juvenile Justice Act, IPC and Prevention of Children from Sexual Offence Act (POCSO), Asaram Bapu is accussed under the pretext of sexually assaulting a 16 year old girl in his Jodhpur ashram between 1997 and 2006.

Also Asaram said that the girl has a natural willingness to be physical with men. How a Baba could utter such nuisance? What about his son, Narayan Sai who has already escaped from the scene accused of sexually assaulting two Surat-based girls? After his potency test, now this fraud is convicted with 1,011 page charge sheet comprising of 121 documents and has statements of 58 witnesses.

Such culprits should be shunned from the society who preaches negativity and superstition. It is quite funny to see on the flip side of the coin that how his blind followers attack lawyers to see Asaram only to bow before him. The distinction between good and bad by these followers has already been diminished. They are sucked out of their moral values and only fed by hollow values making them unable to see the right and wrong.

Knowing the fact that he has done a shameful act, Asaram does not feel shame in applying for bail second time. Rajasthan High Court and Bail Lawyer(s) has denied granting his bail.  Charges against this fraud Asaram reveal that he possesses the deadly sins- greed, sloth, lust, envy and anger-such things make him no ‘sant’.


  1. What rubbish how cheap these babas are.

  2. The society should boycott these babas

  3. Asaram said that the girl has a natural willingness to be physical with men.What rubbish how cheap these babas are.

  4. Is this the real face of Saint? Hate him.

  5. We need a special act for this kind of cases.
