Has it become a trend among these crowd controllers to engage in astonishing activities? Not much time has passed since the ‘RAM RAHIM’ incidence which spread like wildfire in the country and yet another ‘messenger of god’ has been reported to sin.
Dati madan maharaj, a man who has been the center of female and social welfare activities carried out under his trust, Shree Shanidham trust was reported by his female disciple who assaulted rape charges against him. She has accused him of raping her two years ago and then harassing her in his temple Shanidham near chattarpur.
However irony lies in the past activities of the man, for years he had been linked with women empowerment as he celebrated his birthday as a day to prevent female feticide. Also politically renounced daati maharaj shares connection with major leaders of BJP including party president amit shah who visited shani dham not less than two months ago and yogi adityanath. Sources have revealed that he was about to be introduced in rajya sabha but revolving around controversies has made it seem impossible for him now. Sources have also reported that he is planning to flee the country.
The 76-year old self-declared saint is accused of raping a teen girl at his ashram in Jodhpur in 2013.
Days after figuring in Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad’s list of fake saint, self-proclaimed godman Asaram Bapu now described himself as a donkey. The ‘fake’ religious guru’s reaction came while he was speaking to reporters, outside a court after his latest hearing. With a journalist being curious to know the category where Asaram sees himself, the infuriated sadhu replied, “the category of donkeys.”
The 76-year old self-declared saint is accused of raping a teen girl at his ashram in Jodhpur in 2013. Despite seven attempts to plead for a bail, the court has always turned down his request and Asaram had been in jail since 2013.
Last week, Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, the apex body of saints and sadhu’s in India released a list of ‘fake babas’ thereby warning devotees to avoid consulting them in any religious or spiritual matter. The Akhara consists of 14 groups across the country. Also on the list of ‘fake sadhu’ were Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Raadhe Maa, Swami Aseemanand, Nirmal Baba and Rampal. These self-anointed gurus and bapus who, riding on their mass popularity, financial strength and political connections, have become leaders of various cults. They have been called out by the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) as “charlatans who have brought disrepute to sadhus and sanyasis”.
The Parishad’s president Swami Narendra Giri said: “We appeal to the common people to beware of such charlatans who belong to no tradition and by their questionable acts, bring disrepute to sadhus and sanyasis… As per the Hindu way of life, only followers of the age-old tradition of Sanyasi, Nath, Vaishnav, Shaiv, Udasin, Nirmal and Guru Nanak sects are saints.” Apart from these, no self-proclaimed godman or godwoman should be considered a saint as they are neither part of any akhara, nor ordained.”
A trial court will formally frame charges in connection with the rape and sexual harassment case against former Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal on September 28, public prosecutor Francis Tavora said on Thursday.
Briefing reporters outside the District and Sessions Court, Tavora said that all charges proposed by the police including Sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code had been endorsed by the court, while an additional Section 354 (b) (criminal assault with intent to disrobe) had been added.
Tejpal’s counsel Pramod Dubey has, however, told reporters that Section 376 had been dropped from the list of charges.
Accused of sexually assaulting a junior female colleague in the elevator of a hotel in north Goa during an event in November 2013, Tejpal was subsequently arrested but is now out on bail.
Dubey said that the future course of action would be decided “once the order is examined”.
According to Delhi Commission of Women out of 583 rape cases registered, only 12 were real. Shocking, isn’t? A lot has been changed from that 16th December 2012 night. Laws were amended to give more power to women. Though late, steps were taken to eradicate decaying system of laws and to send a sense of fear against the convict.
Laws were amended in a view to empower half of the nation’s population. But above statistics narrates a different story. Laws are being misused more than being used. The questions arise, why these laws are being misused when it is amended to safeguard the dignity of a woman? Why would a woman file a false rape case when she doesn’t know the apathy of a real rape case woman goes? The question also arises to the role of media. The blind eye the media had turned on to the male-centric violence also raises the eyebrows.
Like genuine rape cases, the crime against male gender also gets un-noticed or unregistered because of the mindset “mard ko dard nahi hota”. Who in a world would listen to with this mindset of its countryman
The other thing that comes into play is the “feminism” role. The word “feminism” has taken a 360-degree turnaround in this country. We are not questioning woman empowerment and equality for woman in the country. But there is a fine line between feminism and male hating feminism.
The other thing which holds back male gender is our own police department. There was a case in Delhi as how a police constable laughed on to a molested victim by a lady. The police officer gave him an advice as it happens only to the woman, not with YOU.
In a recent verdict by Delhi High Court stated “The rising number of false rape cases had put a tag on Delhi as India’s rape capital”. The situation is so serious that it forced Delhi High court to state such strong worded sentence. It’s high time that stronger laws should be made against the petitioner of a false rape case.
