Disciples of Asaram Bapu end a week long Hunger Strike at Jantar Mantar

Around 15000 followers of jailed godman Asaram Bapuji ended a week long hunger strike at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi. Asaram Bapu is behind bars for  an alleged sexual assault case. Recently, the complainant girl’s medical report went viral on social media stating that she was a virgin, her hymen was intact & that there were no signs of the following :

  • Sexual Assault
  • Bite Marks
  • Scratches
  • Abrasion
  • Force

Her medical examination was conducted by Dr Shalija Verma at Lok Nayak Hospital, Delhi. Asaram Bapu’s followers allege that the complainant girl’s parents were already in a dispute with the ashram for some real estate dealings. The identity of the girl has been diclosed due to legal reasons. Her official name as per academic records changed thrice. Even her Date of Birth had 3 different records. Asaram Bapu’s disciples claim that that it is a conspiracy hatched to take over his 450 ashram real estate and that the real estate mafia is involved along with some cunning ashramite insiders. Asaram Bapu, aged 75 is still serving jail while nothing has been proven till date. He was arrested under POCSO 2 years ago. Most of his believers belive that it is Pankaj Virchandani, the seniormost management guy in the ashram trust to be behind the conspiracy as well as the murders. It is assumed that he along with 20 -30 other deceitful ashramites planned the conspiracy and carried on murders to implicate Asaram and his already imprisoned family even more.


Asaram Bapu’s Case is a perfect example of Judiciary’s lax and time consuming procedures that lead to extremely time consuming verdicts. His followers were lathicharged but undeterred and claim that their guru will come out clean. However, the greater struggle for them seems to be fighting off the rigid and non-cooperative attitude of the power & money hungry ashram management which is visibly enjoying Asaram’s arrest.
