Killing Witness in asaram Bapu Case
Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu (endearingly called as “Bapuji”) is ensnared in a false, frivolous rape case with a supposedly “minor” girl. It is interesting that a 19 year old girl is considered minor despite the fact that all documents have been submitted to prove that she is not, in-fact WAS NOT minor even at the time of “alleged” incident in 2013 when Bapuji was incarcerated; yet the bail is not granted to Bapuji.
Bapuji has also been defamed as serial killer of witnesses through the conspiracies hatched by the conspirators. Was it less painful to see one’s Guru incarcerated in a fake case, when He is actually innocent? But the conspirators had started leveling one after the other allegations against Him right from the very beginning, one of those being “killing of witnesses”. Supposedly, an audio clip was found, which, as per “paid-media”, claimed that Asharam Bapuji conspired for the murder of witness Kripal Singh.
Could someone prudent enough please let me know whether anyone of even ordinary sense would ever want to kill a witness who didn’t even give any statement against him/her? Even a child could give a sensible & thoughtful answer to this question, which is obviously ‘No’! Kripal Singh, the witness in the this fake rape case, had given the statement that he knows that girl and nothing more that that. Does this statement harm Bapuji in any manner? I don’t think so.

But since the conspirators have no grounds to prove the occurrence of the incident of rape, as they do not have any cogent proof of it; the only thing that could be done was – to kill the witnesses and twist the case by cooking-up stories, thereby successfully presenting those in public eye.
Our learned media personnel, who are most of the times in “sleeping-mode” when it comes to covering any positive news related to Bapuji and also forgets to cover the stories of His philanthropic deeds, all of a sudden woke up and started sensationalizing the news with their own spices of rumors and fake stories. Why is it so that they always speak ill about Bapuji? The most obvious reason being – Bapuji has never given a single penny to promote His activities when media houses demanded in this regard and hence, the crop of negative news for Bapuji is growing.
You may be aware of an incident that took place a few years back, wherein the conspirators embroiled Swami Nithyananda in fake obscene CD based case, which was later proved wrong. Refer link:
This aforesaid audio clip has been also morphed by the conspirators (with the voice being taken from the CDs of Bapuji’s discourses) and thus has been twisted accordingly to overlap to their “cooked-up” story of Bapuji or ashram killing the witnesses. Another fact that is worth considering is: when singers like Sudesh Bhonsle & Sugandha can sing as cine start – Amitabh Bacchan & playback singer- Lata Mangeshkar respectively and when many other mimicry artists can speak, sing and behave like celebrities; making such audio or video clippings with dubbed voice of the world famous saint – Bapuji is no big deal.
The conspirators did not have any cogent evidence to support their claim; hence they played with the lives of witnesses in this case and the “obedient” paid media obeyed the conspirators by presenting the paid negative news.
How can they forget those days when even a direct or indirect glimpse of Bapuji sitting on Vyas Peeth(holy stage of the saints to deliver discourses) made all his disciples in the Satsang hall, in-fact even those sitting in the rooms and listening to His preaching & discourses on TV or internet; worship Him by lighting small lamps.
You can see that equanimity (Samatva) on Bapuji’s face even while He, in His sober, white attire, moves from Jail premises to the court room at the age of 75, despite the fact that His wife is ailing from heart disease and the son (Narayan Sai) is also arrested in a fake rape case. This is how one can identify a saint in odd circumstances. He has said that the truth will triumph and that He does not want to say anything on such issues except that he is not involved in any illicit activities and requested others to let him sing the glory of the Lord.

But the paid media hardly presented any news on it. India TV, which specializes in disseminating anti- Hindu news, defamed Bapuji by all means; hurt by this, Mr. Dilip Kumar (Patna) had filed defamation suit against Deepak Chourasia and Director of India TV channel.
Patna City court issued summons against them u/s 298 and 508 of the IPC. But they did not appear in the court on the hearing dates and it is contempt the court. Therefore non-bailable summons have been issued against them and we demand justice on August 21, 2015.
Senior Advocate Mr. K. K. Manan had lambasted the media for presenting unfair and biased news and warned them to be in control and know their limits lest they be embroiled in creating and disseminating defamatory contents for a revered saint.
Senior Advocate Mr. Ram Jethmalani, who was handling the case at the initial stage, said that there is nothing like rape in the case, hence baseless.
Eminent lawyer Mr. Subramanian Swamy has said that these proceedings of the court are costing money to the nation. By giving adjournments, thus delaying & procrastinating rather than deciding the case, the expenditure of this whole mess plotted by the conspirators is incurred by the nation. (Refer link: for Subramanian Swamy’s tweet).
For how long can these procedural formalities befool public? We want justice, nothing less for our revered saint and require that a thorough probe and stringent actions be taken against the conspirators at the earliest!
