The allegation is that he sexually assaulted an underage devotee, even demanded a blow-job (!!!), according tot he victim. Can’t believe this is happening! How? Why?
Can’t also believe Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had indeed referred to him with utmost reverence ‘bapu ji’ in the parliament. Is India truly a ridiculously secular democracy? Or is it that we only have morons holding power in the country?
“Param Pujya Sant Shri Asharamji, endearingly called ‘Bapu’, is a Self-Realized Saint from India. Pujya Bapuji preaches the existence of OneSupreme Conscious in every human being; be it Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh or anyone else. Bapuji represents a Confluence of Bhakti Yoga, Gyan Yoga & Karma Yoga. ”
Thus says his website: http://www.ashram.org/PujyaBapuji/AboutBapuji.aspx
As they say any accused is innocent till proven otherwise, I cannot say more on this case. But I think when it comes to contesting elections politicians with criminal cases filed against them should not be allowed unless proven innocent by a court.
