3 years of Asharam Bapu in Jail, Black Day on 31 August

Black Day for followers of Asaram Bapu


31st August brings with itself a flood of memories and scenes involving helplessness, confusion, anger and thick silent wave of tearful prayers. This night, 3 years back, a convoy of 600+ policemen surrounded Indore Ashram of Saint Asaram Bapu and arrested him by backdoor stealth. This day also marks the last public discourse of Saint Asaram Bapu before going to Jail. We were beaten, lied, forced and abused. All because, Hinduism had to be dishonored and destroyed. Please don't get me wrong, Asaram Bapu has not been arrested because he is a criminal, Asaram Bapu has been arrested because he is a Hindu.


Revisiting 31 August, 2013 - Facts and Files


From a long time various allegations have been levied upon Asaram Bapu and ashram(s) in order to defame and tamper his popularity. Yet every previous implications has been discarded in court of law and/or by CBI. Now, under this fresh pre-planned imprecation a girl from Shahjahapur (U.P.) has been made the pawn on the scene.

Some facts that prove why all implications are baseless, implanted and why Asaram Bapu arrest on 31st August was a Black Day for Hinduism.

#1 Girl has claimed charges of molestation and improper conduct, yet all of major media houses and leading newspapers have showed and publicized that it was "rape" and also that charge of "rape" has been attested by medical reports.  Whereas the truth is that girl has made no mention of 'rape' in FIR and medical reports actually reject / disprove all such charges. Jodhpur police had accepted in a press conference that Delhi police has registered the case on erroneous charges, and levied charges which don't match with girl's statement in FIR. Yet blatant advertising by media of false charges has hurt the sentiments of millions of followers of Bapu. Isn't this a grave folly on part of both media and police?

#2 Girl's family registers FIR only after 5 days from mentioned date in FIR. Why not immediately ? [Were they and conspirators, cross-checking and making allowances for lapses in their story this 5 days ?]

#3 Girl lives in Shahjahapur [UP],   she claims the incident to be of Jodhpur[Raj]   but registers an FIR at Delhi. This reality itself gives indications at pre-arranged procedure as opposed to normal occurrence ! [Were all police headquarters on vacations between Jodhpur-Shahjahapur]. [Were all police stations on vacations between Jodhpur-Shahjahapur].

#4 As soon as girl entered Manai Farm House, she was repeatedly heard to be telling "I want to see Bapuji's Kutia (cottage)". This means that it was quite essential for her to go near the cottage in order to validate her claims later.

#5 The room which girl implicates in her FIR is situated only at a distance of 50-60 ft from gates of cottage's enclosure. Girl claims that her mother was sitting on gate of Cottage. [Why was the Mother sitting there peacefully since one hour and a half, while her daughter was as theorized locked in-front of her inside a dark room?] Being in a very calm area, shouts of even a 6 year old is bound to be heard in range of 500 ft. On top of all this girl claims in FIR, that she was repeatedly shouting and crying. How come then shouts of 18 year old couldn't reach her mother sitting only 60 ft apart ? The room in which her father stayed is at a distance of 200 ft, above farm house owner's room. More than 10 people were staying with farm house's owner at that time; why then no one has heard anything ?

#6 Girl tells in her FIR that when she shouted , Bapu JI closed her mouth with his one hand and kept caressing her for 1-1.5 hrs ? How can someone do this for 1-1.5 hr ?

#7 Girl tells that she immediately met her mother and father after this incident. How come she was did not speak anything then? [or is it that she never was locked, inside or out?] How could parents not gauge their daughter's reaction or mental state. A girl allegedly in locks for one and half hours, calmly goes out to her parents. Parents and the Girl then go and sleep peacefully. Wow!

#8 Women staying in farm house have told that on day of assumed incident around 9:30 at night, first girl's father then after 2-3 min mother and wife enter the house (ground floor), take water and go to sleep on upper apartments. As is the routine the inmates locked the (only) gate connecting two floors from inside (ground floor) and they too retire to sleep. How and when did the incident happen ? [Maybe girl escaped by flying through sky ?]

#9 On night of 15/8/13 at 8 pm girls' friend Kritika told girl and her mother to go to their house which is nearby for night's stay as all women were staying there. Also some more brother devotees were expected to arrive at night time, so it'll be easy for them to stay in farm house. The girl, Immediately sensing grave danger to her plan blurted out "if there will be no space in house, I'll sleep on terrace but i won't leave this place and go". This firmly proves that by registering her attendance in night ; she had to construct the base of her story.


#10 When on morning of 16, girl and her family joined inmates on breakfast table she was quite happy and certainly normal. She then happily laughed and played with 1.5 yr old grand-son of house for quite some time.[No fear , No gloom possibly jubilation over partial success of her plans].

#11 Before leaving Chindwara Gurukul [of shri asaramji bapu ashram] she said to her friends that : "I will never return to this Gurukul and shake the foundations of this establishment" .This also hints at planning and plots in her brain.

#12 On evening of 14th while Bapu Ji was going out for evening walk, Bapu Ji upon request of sadhaks allowed them to go near his cottage and have darshan. Girl, her mother along-with many other went to cottage and circumambulate it. The same description of interiors of cottage as specified by girl in FIR, has been told by all others present upon being asked ? Has then this incident happened with all persons present ?

Will case against Asharam Bapu survive?

If you are any fan of Dr Subramanian Swamy, you would know long back that this case is a sham and legally baseless. He has tweeted and given various interview detailing out his most vocal support in favor of Bapu Ji. The only purpose this case had to serve was to bring down repute of Asaram Bapu in particular and Hindu Saints and Leaders in general.

All these above facts prove that Asaram ji Bapu is being maligned and targeted under pre-planned conspiracy. It is high time we citizens of India take cognizance of the fact and strive to free Asaram Bapu from undue judicial custody since three years in Jail.

Freedom of Expression - Virtues, Limits and Critics

This is a reproduction of exact letter authored by Narayan Sai from Surat Lajpore Jail. This one letter here sounds so close and special because seeing India’s current trends and behavior, this letter couldn’t have come at a better time that now when India stands at the juncture of political insecurity and forbearance. We hope this letter touches your heart as it has touched mine. 


Letter on Freedom of Expression

I express my views on freedom of expression as many authors and thinkers have opined their minds on the same.

Voltaire has said this on freedom of speech,‘Whatever you say, it may be to my extreme dislike but still, you have full rights to say the things that you want to say. If someone tries to deprive you of this, your right I am decided to fight for you.’

I consider that people with unique political tendencies and each college of ideas must have their freedom of expression because this is what a democracy is, but our country today is flooded with such excessive freedom of expression.

Anti-social elements too are being given countrywide systems to propagate their really anti-national perspectives which at the same time as being dangerous to country additionally imparts an incorrect message to our youths. Country's environs are being spoiled.

Again and again, I feel that India is far more endangered, not with people outside her boundaries but with such people residing within and resiliently trying forth to weaken our strong roots. More than attacks emanating from across boundaries, some people dwelling interior our country bring us until arms of defeat. Only through regulating such people correctly through criminal/constitutional means can this country be saved.

None can be given permissions to attack this country's basis of foundation under the guise of 'freedom of expression'. People have got to be cautious against this and protect and reassert their unity for this country across personal diversity. Our country is foremost - rest all things can come afterwards.

13/5/16 - Narayan Sai

मैं अभिव्यक्ति की स्वतंत्रता के बारे में अपना मत व्यक्त करता हूँ चूँकि इस विषय पर अनेकों लेखको चिंतको ने अपना मत व्यक्त किया है।

अभिव्यक्ति की स्वतंत्रता को लेकर वाल्तेयर ने कहा है की आप जो भी कहते हैं वह मुझे बिल्कुल भी पसंद नहीं है लेकिन आपको वह बात कहने का पूरा अधिकार है जो आप कहना चाहते हैं। यदि कोई आपको आपके इस अधिकार से वंचित करना चाहता है तो मैं आपके लिए संघर्ष करूंगा ।

मैं मानता हूँ की तमाम राजनीतिक दलों के प्रति रुझान रखने वालो और सभी विचार धाराओं के लोगों को अभिव्यक्ति की स्वतंत्रता मिलनी चाहिए यही लोकतंत्र है लेकिन हमारे देश में इस तरह की आज़ादी की अधिकता हो चुकी हैं।

असामाजिक तत्वों को भी अपने देश विरोधी विचारों को अभिव्यक्त करने के लिए मंच मिल रहा है जो देश के लिए खतरनाक हो सकता है और ऐसा होने से युवाओं में गलत संदेश जाता हैं। देश का महौल खराब होता है।

कभी कभी ऐसा लगता है कि देश को सबसे बड़ा खतरा बाहरी लोगों से नहीं है लेकिन भीतर के ऐसे लोगों से है जो हमारी मजबूत जड़ों को कमजोर करने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं। सीमापर से होने वाले हमलों से ज्यादा देश के भीतर रहने वाले कुछ लोग देश को  हराते हैं। इनको सही तरीके से नियंत्रित करके ही देशको बचाया जा सकता है ।

अभिव्यक्ति कि स्वतंत्रता के नाम पर देशके मूलाधार पर चोट करने की इजाजत किसी को भी नहीं दी जा सकती। लोगों को इससे सचेत रहना होगा और विविधता में एकता के जरिये देशकी अखंडता की रक्षा करनी होगी । राष्ट्र पहले है - बाकी चीजे बाद मे ।

Letter cuts through Amyelous Views of anti-Nationals


Amidst cries and howls of separatists and dim witted media journalists and their doted struggling to complete graduation super-heroes this decided and focused view on “freedom of expression” is such a refreshing and laudable change. I salute the contents of this letter which apart from being a testimony to Indian Rishi Paramapara (Ancient Tradition upheld by Sages and Saints), its austerity and intellect, is also cent percent right in its execution. Indian historic texts and manuscripts are full of such instances when during times of terror, chaos, political inactivity and decline of cultural and heritage India, some men of great intellect and penance have intercepted and tried to transcend and awaken the masses. I believe that the moment is upon us when we recognize leaders amongst us and faithfully strive to bring back India her glory and shine.
