Truth still waiting to be revealed – News Facts on Asaram Bapu
A year ago in early September, an adorable venerable saint with huge followership, was embroiled in a rape case, that too with a “supposed” minor. “Heinous crime committed by girl’s preacher!” was the sensational news spread by electronic media, print media and social media. The alleged offence was analyzed and criticized by various so called sociologists, psychologists and other eminent personalities.
Who were these to analyze and criticize the same and stand in favor of the alleged rape victim? These were the people who were either paid for misleading the innocent public or were experts in creating rumor. After a year, this September, they again analyzed the grief of the alleged rape victim, who stated that she wanted to become an IAS to combat with people like Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu (referred to as “Bapuji”). This is the same girl who had declared in ashram gurukul that she would defame ashram and gurukul as she did not wish to abide by the norms set by ashram that encourages one to lead a simple life and by alleging “rape”, made an attempt to defame the ashram all over the world. This truth was though uncovered by media.
When asked about a question on her career after prolonged hearing during a year, she replied that when she planned to go for computer course but she was disturbed by the people around. It is a substantial question whether she got disturbed or she created nuisance for others by this concocted tale of rape. Had she been seriously and genuinely interested in studies, she would be reading with the girls at Gurukul in a disciplined environment.

In a further question, she told that her parents are co-operating despite their ill health conditions and that she feels insecure when they are not with her. Isn’t it exaggeration of the actual condition? Whose parents would falsely blame ashram all the time and hinder in all ashram activities? Whenever it appears that the bail can be granted in the coming hearing to Bapuji, they come up with a cooked-up story of being threatened (with regards to the ongoing case) by ashram mates or Bapuji’s followers. As far as her parents’ health issues are concerned, they are quite well at the time of making stories against Bapuji and pretend to be unwell during case proceedings to gain sympathy; surely they are unwell not in terms of physical health but mentally, to have leveled such frivolous allegations against His Holiness Bapuji. These are the parents of the same girl who had explicitly announced in the public to defame Bapuji and gurukuls in public eye.
On another question of her being connected with her classmates in gurukul, she denied saying that she felt they might conspire against her and that some of them are in support of her but they could not raise voice against Bapuji. But the fact is: Women’s Commission had already given report of girls staying in ashram and Gurukul that they are safe and secure there.
It was also alleged that that girl was forced to quit the case proceedings by hook or crook, but the fact remains that she’d told one of her friend that she is being taught by her parents to do what she does not wish to do.
In her interview, the alleged rape victim stated that this is very tough phase for her and her family, as Bapuji’s followers are constantly annoying & threatening them, but the untold fact is that Bapuji and ashram trust or gurukuls have no connections with such people to have threatened the rape victim at any course of time. Moreover, such people’s conspiracies have been revealed from time to time; for instance Surat DCP Shobha Bhutada had received phone threat calls from someone who wasn’t a devotee of Bapuji or Narayan Sai, but the news was initially wrongly projected by electronic media; for clarification, refer link
In an encounter with Bapuji, she said that she got scared of His attitude of frightening her, but the fact is that Bapuji considers her as His grandchild till date and says that she is as holy as the Ganges is and no such offence has been committed on her. Such is the composed and calm nature of our innocent saint Bapuji, whose shiny, expensive dresses and embellished crowns were afforded by His devotees (though He never demanded even a single penny) and anything could happen at his instructions, is leading a life without pomposity, reforming lives of prisoners and after prolonged adjournments, he could hardly get a team of doctors to cure His chronic disease – Trigeminal Neuralgia and underwent various unnecessary medical check-ups irrespective of his whatsoever health conditions and age factor.
It is a question, unanswered so far, that Bapuji, a revered saint, when imprisoned, can lead to a cow going and shedding tears at His ashram everyday twice at sandhya hours and thus recognize a true saint, but our judiciary and media personnel still need evidence and proofs for His acquittal. May the indweller give judiciary and the concerned authorities’ sufficient sense to understand the situation and release Bapuji soon!
