Saint Rae Saint: Rape to murder

Why Asaram was caught from Indore?

Asaram and his social impact
In April, 1941, Asaram’s real name Aslam Harpalani was born in Berani village of Sindh district of present Pakistan.

Asaram’s family, belonging to the Sindhi merchants community, came to Ahmedabad in 1947 after the partition of India.

In the sixties, he made Leelashah his spiritual master. Later, Leelaashah named Asamal as Asaram.
In 1972, Asaram made his first cottage on the banks of river Sabarmati in Mittera town, about 10 km from Ahmedabad.

Asaram’s spiritual project started from here, gradually spread to different states of the country due to other cities of Gujarat.

At the beginning, the effect of Asaram, who was tempted to serve the trio of his ‘discourses, country medicines and bhajan kirtan’ to poor, backward and tribal groups coming from Gujarat’s rural areas, gradually started growing in the urban middle-class areas of the state.
In the early years, after the discourse, free meals distributed in the name of Prasad also played an important role in accelerating the number of Asaram’s ‘devotees’.

According to Asaram’s official website, he has four crore followers all over the world today.

In the coming decades, together with his son Narayan Sai, Asaram has established his empire of 400 Ashrams spread abroad.

Asaram’s huge influence in this vast influence of his devotees and ashrams, along with property worth nearly Rs 10 thousand crores, is being investigated by the tax department and the Enforcement Directorate of Central and Gujarat States.

This investigation also includes cases of land grabbing for illegal construction of ashram.

Asaram’s political influence
As the number of devotees increased, politicians also tried to make penetration through a big voter group through Asaram.

From 1990 to 2000, veteran leaders like Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) LK Advani and Nitin Gadkari, along with former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, were included in their list of devotees. Senior Congress leaders like Digvijay Singh, Kamal Nath and Motilal Vora will also be included in this list.

At the same time, a long farewell of BJP’s present and former Chief Ministers is going on for ‘Darshan’ of Asaram. The names of Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Uma Bharti, Raman Singh, Prem Kumar Dhumal and Vasundhara Raje are included in this fair.

All of these, the most important name for the ‘Darshan’ of Asaram in the early years of the 2000s is the name of India’s current Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

But in 2008, after the murder of 2 children in Asaram’s Mutarera Ashram, leaders of almost every political party made the distance from them.

In August 2013, the whole family of the victim of Shahjahanpur, who filed a case of rape against Asaram, was a devout devotee of Asaram before the incident.

The victim’s father had built Asaram’s ashram in Shahjahanpur on his own expenditure. In the hope of ‘Sanctified education’, he sent his two children to study in Gurukul located at Chhindwara in Asaram.

On August 7, 2013, the victim’s father received a call from Chhindwada Gurukul. On the phone he was told that his 16-year-old daughter is ill.

The next day when the victim’s parents reached Chhindwara in Gurukul, they were told that their daughter is the face of the ghosts that Asaram can do right.
On August 14, the victim’s family reached Asaram Jodhpur to meet Asaram.

According to the chargesheet filed in the suit, Asaram rape the 15-year-old 16-year-old victim on the pretext of “doing fine” in his cottage and in rape.

If the family of the victim believed, then it was the same for them to turn this incident into a God’s eater. This family spent the past five years of the hearing like locked hostages in their house.

According to the family he was offered a bribe and threatened to kill him, but he remained in his judicial battle against many more influential Asaram.
