Asaram Bapu and the Chief Minister of MP

leave a comment »


Among political sadhus, one may count Chandraswami and Baba Ramdev. Now another has joined the club. This video from the Asaram Bapu channel is half an hour long, but you need to watch only the first 5 minutes if you want to see the dialogue between the minister and the preacher.

Unless you have been trekking the Himalayas in the last couple of weeks, you know all about the recent allegations about Asaram Bapu. Even today other allegations emerged.

IBN-Live reports that someone finally asked the question which was on everyone’s mind:

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, [JD(U) MP Sharad] Yadav said when law is equal for all, why the self-styled godman has not been arrested and was visiting various places. He wondered as to why no action has been taken against him despite Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot having an hour-long meeting with Union Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on the issue.

Developments in this case were reported on September 1 by BS:

Self-styled godman Asaram Bapu was on Sunday flown to Jodhpur by police, hours after his arrest from his ashram here for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl.

The Air India flight AI-635 carrying asaram left at 7.50 a.m. and will land at New Delhi from where he will board another flight for Jodhpur, sources said.

Asaram was arrested after lengthy questioning at his ashram in Indore, sources said.

The girl had lodged a complaint at a police station in Delhi [on] August 20.
