Aasaram Bapu – Early Life and How He went on to become self-styled Godman
The dusty town of Motera lies Less than 35 kilometers from the centre of Ahmedabad. lies now made famous by one of India’s best known spiritual gurus, self-styled godman and a an ally to the rich and the powerful. Nearly 42 years ago, a developing friendship with the powers that be in Gujarat earned Asaram Harpalani, the son a coal and wood seller, 10 acres of fertile agricultural land.
The land did not come to him all at once; it accumulated over the years as friendships strengthened. Harpalani, who was born in 1941 in Berami village of Pakistan’s Sindh province, set up a small ashram on the land, the first of over 400 ashrams that exist today across the world. Soon enough, this self-styled religious preacher dropped his surname and began calling himself Asaram Bapu.
Remark on Delhi Gang Rape Victim and Other Controversies Surrounding Bapu Aasaram [Videos]
His controversial intervention in the Delhi rape case—when he said “galati ek taraf se nahin hoti hai,” suggesting the victim of the sexual assault was equally responsible for the crime—has recently brought unwanted national attention to the man, but in Gujarat, Asaram and his Motera ashram have been in the eye of a storm since July 2008. The controversy involves the deaths of two ten-year-old cousins, Abhishek and Dipesh Vaghela, at the ashram’s Bal Kendra, on 3 July, a month after they were admitted there as students. On 23 January this year, seven disciples of Asaram accused in the Vaghela case were summoned by an Ahmedabad court.
After the mysterious disappearance of the Vaghela brothers from the heavily guarded Bal Kendra, the ashram administration, including Asaram and Darshan Sai, initially played down the seriousness of the incident. The parents of the children were told that they had run away home, a fact strongly contested by them. Praful Vaghela, father of Dipesh said that his brother Shantibhai and he enrolled their children at the Motera ashram for education.
Vaghela also told that he paid Rs 15,000 each but were not given pucca receipts. It was just a handwritten receipt. The children were given yellow T-shirts and white pajamas as uniform in the ashram. In that month, they visited them at least six to eight times. On 28 June, when they visited the ashram, their hair was tonsured and both had sandalwood tikas on their foreheads. According to him, the children told him that the tonsuring was done in the presence of Asaram. On the afternoon of 3 July, Shantibhai met the children at the ashram. At 9 pm the same day, Praful Vaghela received a call from the ashram administration inquiring if the children had come home. The Vaghelas went to the ashram and looked for the children. At the end of their futile search, Pankaj Saksena, the administrator of the gurukul told them to go around a peepal tree 11 times and ask for the children.
The family, Vaghela claims, wanted to file a police complaint, but the Ashram administration did not allow them to do so. The family waited out the night and proceeded to the Chandkeda police station the next morning. Two office bearers of the ashram—Vikas Khemcha and Ajay Shah—were already there at the police station. He said that his family was stopped from filing a complaint in the police.
On the third day of the search, the ashram administration told the Vaghelas another bizarre story—the thumbnail of a 10-year-old gurukul resident had indicated that the missing children were at Kallol. Not surprisingly, that was not where the children were found. Their bodies were finally recovered from a dried-up riverbed close to the ashram.
Vaghela can still vividly recall the harrowing sight—his son Dipesh’s arms were missing from the shoulder down. All the internal organs were missing, only the hollowed out ribcage remained. His left leg appeared to be cut off at the ankle, the right leg seemed burnt. His nephew Abhishek’s body was half burnt as well. Instead of helping the family, the policemen harassed them and refused to register complaints against Asaram and the ashram. Asaram has always been the good books of the media. But when the media started reporting on the Vaghela case, many other skeletons started tumbling out of the ashram closets.
The incident added facts to the rumors of tantric practices by Asaram and his followers.
Aasaram Bapu is Involved in Black Magic and Other Illegal Tantric Practices
Vaghela continues to maintain that Asaram and his son are involved in black magic and tantric practices, a claim he has made in his deposition before the Justice (retired) DK Trivedi Commission of Inquiry. The Commission, appointed by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to probe the deaths following the public outcry, has already been censured by the Gujarat High Court for going soft on Asaram and his son. The high court order on a petition filed by Asaram challenged the Commission summons to appear before it. When Asaram appeared before the Commission, after being summoned on six different occasions, he was accompanied by an entourage of slogan-shouting followers. Eyewitnesses say that even as the deposition before the Commission was on, Asaram would leave the room without permission, either to drink milk or address his followers.
Ashram spokesman Uday Sangani, an accused in the Vaghela case, dismisses the cases against Asaram and his associates as politically motivated. He says it is perceived that Bapuji is close to the BJP due to his Hindutva teachings, hence the Congress has started this harassment. He has been associated with the ashram for the past 17 years.
Asaram Bapu is controversy’s favorite child. Recently it is alleged that he kicked one of his disciples and used abusive language at one of his sermons.
He has also been involved in not one but many controversies, few of which are as serious as murdering a person, sex scandal and giving money to kill Muslims in Gujarat. Below are some of the videos showing reports about Bapu being involved in all these controversies.
Attempt to murder case filed against Asaram Bapu
Spiritual guru Asaram Bapu has been accused of plotting murder of one his sadhaks Raju Chandok. Chandok, who was attacked by unidentified assailants on Saturday, has accused Asaram Bapu to be the mastermind behind the attack.
With Modi’s help Asaram bapu has not even been listed yet in FIR of murders done by asaram
Mr. Karan Thapar asking about murders Modi don’t want to be exposed. Modi get’s up to leave. Even hindu Family whose children are murdered by asaram were fooled by modi.
Innocent lives were ruined by these thugs in the name of GURU SEWA. another Ashram was exposed for terror training with help of pragya. Asaram bapu his son Narayan and his daughter bharti are still out of jail because Police has not even named them yet, CBI has not been involved yet. bharti & Narayan ran away from india. Asaram trying his best to threaten people woo public by his propaganda and defaming victims and people who brought his real face in public.
2 kids SLAUGHTERED for TANTRIK kriya by tantrik asaram bapu
Asaram bapu son slaughterd two childrens for tantrik kriya now running away from law. Tantrik kriya is a normal routine in asaram ashram and infact he has a tantrik available in each ashram who is basically a brainwashed fanatic wanted to become tantrik & asaram is using him for his occult activities. Like that Mishra who had gone to Aghori tantrik to order murder of 6 people. Tantick activity is so common which can be proved by NARCO of any of the inmates who are senior or any of asaram ex inmates. ex inmates are already saying YES there is tantrik activity in ashram and provided proof in asaram bapu son Narayan sindhi’s handwriting on his own letter head. The sad part is asaram says kids were drowned, whereas kids heads were shaved off. Kid’s stomach intestines are missing, kids ears are missing and they seems like cut with sharp edge like knife. photos are with parents. But asaram has to save his face in front of all those innocent people who took his deeksha he said i can be hanged to death if ashram inmate did it. Whereas while inquiring CID pinpointed on two of sadhaks and want to do the NARCO test on them, but asaram had them deny in court saying that they don’t want to do NARCO. Well asaram says he can be hanged to death whereas to criminals who are involved in this crimes he is guiding them to save themselves. They are hiding the truth & asaram is afraid truth will be spilled out. Infact so many other murders will also come in light which happened in ashram. Think where India is heading. Asaram has no emotions for people we know for a fact because we know him deep and closely he is a good actor and do all the drama. Asaram has not sent that widowed mother’s son back to Delhi even after 50 days she came on TV. So imagine he only manipulates and say lies & lies to fool people then gain time to hide his crimes. It has been over 60 days the murder of two kids has made no progress and this is India where you can buy anything even after you murder.
