Asaram Bapu , one of the most renowned Godman of the nation who has been making news after two boys died under mysterious conditions in his ashram few years back and early this year for carelessly wasting water while many states were suffering from drought, to play Holi(the festival of colours), has made it to the news yet again for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15 year old devotee in his ashram. Its been a fortnight almost since the case has been registered and the self-proclaimed Godman is yet to surrender seeking further time to surrender which eventually was denied by cops. The police also says that the charges against him are correct and while some are of the view that he enjoys political patronage of big political leaders of major Indian parties,he denied the same.On the contrary,he says he is being victimized by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.As if they get any time off from project Modi, the falling rupee,the trembling economy and the Vadra land scam, to plan and victimize him of all.
Is this incident any different from the recent Mumbai Gangrape case of a 22 year old photojournalist or the Delhi Gangrape case last year which brought many citizens on the roads ? At least he should surrender to the law and let the investigation begin if he is innocent.A commoner is immediately arrested under defamation case for certain Facebook posts against political leaders if complained by the political party but when it comes to powerful people like Asaram suddenly our entire system becomes very lenient.Why ?
