Asaram Bapu : Victim of Anti-Hindu Propaganda


Hindu Saints have been at the receiving end of vilification campaigns and media trials. The media generated pressure builds a coercive pressure even on the judiciary. Even before formal investigations commence, media convictions gain both popularity and traction . Under Media Pressure, even the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad released a list of 14 saints, who are fake according to their observation. The most controversial cases were that of Asaram Bapu and Ram Rahim.


After Ram Rahim's conviction, Asaram Bapu's case is being followed with fervour across the country. Late Shri Ashok Singhalji, Dr Subramaniam Swamy, Sant Mahasabha President Shri Chakrapani, Jagadguru Panchanandgiri Maharaj of Juna Akhada, Mahamandleshwar Shri Sunil Shastriji and other eminent Saints supported Asaram Bapu, saying that he was targetted for being an obstacle for the Christian Missionaries in Tribal Areas.
