The Baba Asaram will die in jail if no relief in sentences provided in subsequent appeal. He has been convicted on four courts for sexual exploitation from Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh to Delhi and on to Jodhpur, wrongful confinement misuse of trust and posts and gang rape.
Another Baba Ram Rehim of Saccha Sauda is also serving 20 years jail term in Hariyana for sexual offences on ashram inmate. Now there appears to be diffence between ‘Babas’ and rape criminals both are one and the same.
So many other Babas and Ashram were also found indulging in various types of crimes and sexual indulgence. The Jodhpure courts have come to lime light in two cases. One related to film actor Salman Khan in black deer poaching case and now Asaram in rape case.
There are many Asharam Asram in Madhya Pradesh in Bhopal, Indore, Chhindwara. In Bhopal it encroached upon the Government land also. The victim underage girl was inmate of his Chhindwara Ashram. His son Narayan is married in Bhopal.
It is a matter of great satisfaction that Government have learnt lesson from Ram Rahim case, After whose conviction large scale violence erupted by his collowers and hired persons in Chandigarh.
But this time Government of Rajastan and Madhya Pradesh kept the situation fully control and it is noteworthy that nothing untoward incidents and violence erupted anywhere Central and State Government should also ensure that now there on no violence will be allowed or tolerated in any political issues and also likewise that occurred in Jat reservation situations on railway tracks and in the city or Rohtak.
We are a democracy the agitation, demonstration and rallys can not be banned but it should remain within the limits of law and concept of democracy.
Asaram has 400 Ashram in 19 countries and wealth of 10,000 crores of rupees. The victim girl as residing in Shahjanpur in Uttar Pradesh said at last she just the justice.
Her father and family also expressed deep sense of gratitude in judicial system and the punishment of the Baba. Two persons in this crime of rape Shilpi and Sharat Chandra warden and director of Chhindwara Ashram were also sentenced each to 20 year jail term.
Still there are cases pending in the courts against Asaram and his son Narayan on the charges raping two girls of Surat city. On hearing the sentence despite putting up brave face for some time ultimately Asaram broke down in tears and slumped in court floor.
For a very long time Asaram camouflaged his life so well that no one doubted his bonafide and leaders like Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani, Nitin Gadkari, Digvijay Singh, Ashok Gahlot, Kamal Nath, Motilal Vora paid him respect.
In Madhya Pradesh Government is taking all step to erase and demolish all public display of his name and properties, Asram has enough deep roots in Madhya Pradesh and everything related to him being removed.
