Hindu Gurus alone are singled out for ill treatment

Two Suffered companions: Sant Shri Asaram BapuJi and Shankaracharya Sri Jayendra Saraswathi ji

In recent, the media has gone gaga about matters related to Hindu Godmen. Will they similarly investigate into the matter of some of the Christian and Muslim leaders, and report to the people?

A lot of hue and cry is being made by the media about the blind faith people have in such Godmen. They never miss a chance to ridicule the ‘miracles’ of Hindu Godmen. But they will never question the ‘miracles’ Muslim and Christian Godmem perform. Has the media or our Rationalists ever raised any question about the claims of ‘miracles’ by the two Kerala Christians, on whom the Pope has conferred ‘Sainthood’ recently?

Anyone doing any illegal activity or challenging the state, even if he is a Godman, should be brought to justice. Hindu Godmen is no exception. If Hindu Godmen is guilty of any of crime like rape and murder etc., then what about the several crimes of Muslim and Christian leaders ?

So, the question is why Hindu Godmen alone are singled out for such a harsh treatment? For example, about a dozen Non-Bailable Arrest warrants are pending against the Imam of the Delhi Jamma Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari. No court has ordered his arrest and production before it. Are there two laws- one for Hindu Godmen and another for Muslim & Christian Godmen?

The trend started with Jayalalitha when on the eve of Deepavali in 2004, she arrested Kanchi Shankaracharya, Jayendra Saraawati Swamiji. She accused the Kanchi Acharya of every possible crime under the sun in the hope that at least one will stick in court and the Mutt will be forever defiled. Sonia smirked, ‘purpose served’. But the court acquitted him of all charges. Now, the AIADMK govt. has the guts to ban RSS Route Marches in the state, although the court had granted permission, but Islamic organizations and Dharvida Kazhakam are given a free hand to take out morchas and organise public rallies where they spew venom on Hindus.

The attitude of Modi Govt. at the centre towards Hindus who are accused and are languishing in jail is no better. It is following a Laissez – faire attitude, saying ‘let the law take its own course’. This policy is perfectly OK for future cases under his non-partisan govt. But what about the injustices meted out to Hindus by the UPA Govt. who were arrested with a vengeance. Should that anomaly not be corrected by his Govt.?

For exemple, Swami Aseemanand, Sadhvi Pragya, Swami Amrutanand Dev Tirth (better known as Dayanand Pandey), Shankaracharya of Sarada Sarvigya peet, Srinagar, are languishing in jail for many years without even a trial. On what basis Bails are denied to them? We can understand the intention of the UPA Govt. in arresting them -to prove Hindu Terror. But why the Modi Govt. follows the same policy? What is the harm in giving them bail? Now that we have a BJP Govt. in Maharashtra, can Hindus expect that these Hindu activists will get bail?

It is surprising that while many men accused of terror plot are getting bail easily, Hindu activists are in jail indefinitely without any charge sheet and trial.

Binayak Sen, a life convict for supporting Maoist terrorist activities by the Chattisgharh High Court, gets bail from the Supreme Court and is promptly appointed as a member in the Health committee of the planning commission by the earlier UPA Govt. But the above mentioned Hindu activists are denied even bail. This is how UPA treated Hindus. Hence people threw them out. Is your govt. too going to be indifferent to Hindu sentiments, Mr. Modi?

Irfan Pada who was awarded life imprisonment in the Godhra carnage (where 59 Hindus, including women and children, were burnt alive in the Sabarmati Express) was granted bail by the Gujarat high court and is roaming free. Not only that, he was recently married his girlfriend from Pakistan!

Tarun Tejpal, a rape accused, has got bail and is a free man today. He is even invited by The Times of India for their ‘Think Fest, to give a lecture. (He was refused at the last moment, due to public pressure). But Sant Asaram Bapu, arrested for similar charges, is languishing in jail for the last more than one year. Why Sant Asaram Bapu is not granted bail, which Tejpal has got? Are there two ‘rape’ laws in india? Tarun Tejpal was arrested by the BJP Govt. in Goa. Sant Asaram Bapu was arrested by the Congress govt. in Rajasthan. Even after the BJP came to power in Rajasthan, Bapu is still rotting in jail. Why can’t the public Prosecutor not oppose his bail application as the PPs under the Congress Govt. do?

The BJP should either release all Hindu religious leaders arrested and incarcerated without trial or give us details about what exactly are the charges against them other than media story telling.

The Modi government hasn’t done a single Hindu thing so Far. He is busy selling Gandhi and Nehru to this Hindu nation and to Christians abroad. Hindus who voted for him with great hopes have waited for six months for Modi to move on at least one Hindu issue. Nope. They are prepared to wait for some more time, but disappointing them will be costly for Modi.
