Fueled By Blind Faith, Asaram Bapu’s Devotees Criticize The ‘Death Penalty’ Amendment In POCSO Act!

Published on 30 December, 2018 at 6:27 pm By

Asaram Bapu is an Indian ‘Godman’. Wondering why there is a quotation around the word Godman? Well, his numerous controversies hint towards the fact that he is anything but saintly. Previously, he became entangled in land encroachment controversy. The next allegation was on the death of four young devotees who used to stay in his Ashram as his disciples. It was claimed that the young boys were sacrificed by the ‘Godman’ in name of practicing black magic.

His insensible nature was further established when he made an insensitive comment on the victim of the 2012 Delhi gang rape while addressing a gathering of devotees.

 

 

These were his exact words:

“The victim is as guilty as her rapists… She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop… This could have saved her dignity and life. Can one hand clap? I don’t think so.”

Presently, he is convicted of raping a schoolgirl and spending his time behind the bars. There are also allegations against him and his son for raping two sisters from Surat. He is still in jail and his bail is rejected for 12 times. Besides charges under Sections 342, 376, 506 and 509 of the IPC, he is also charged with Section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).

 

 

Recently, the cabinet announced amendments to the POCSO Act. Now the accuser will be booked for the death penalty for aggravated sexual assault against children below the age of 12 years. There is no wonder that this is an essential step that will protect the rights of the innocent ones.

 

 

The blind devotees of Asaram Bapu, however, are seeing it as a drawback. They think it will make life hard for an ‘innocent’ man. Believe it or not, they actually claimed that this ‘Godman’ is innocent and POCSO Act will further hurt him. Don’t believe us? These are some of the comments from the devotees of Asaram Bapu.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How shocking is it? Seeing Godmen behaving like sexual perverts is nothing new. Be it a big name like Asaram Bapu or a lesser-known one from some small Indian town, there have been many instances where the babajis take advantage in name of faith and religion.
