SEE UPDATE OCTOBER 2 “Asaram Bapu is a pedophile” – the prosecution’s words“
25th September 2013
Asaram Bapu has tried every trick in the book to wriggle out of accountability for anything, but the tide has turned against him since his political connections have not seen fit to stand up for him this time. His super male-chauvinist attack on the dead victim of the Delhi rape case put him beyond the pale, for what decent person would want to be associated with him thereafter. He would early have loved to close down the media reports, but his political and money connections failed him this time, though he tried to achieve what Sathya Sai Baba did in virtually dominating the press through money and political power connections. Even today, Indian media avoid the elephant in the room, namely male homosexual pedophilia, known to be rife in India… ‘playing with boys’ as it is known and of which Sathya Sai Baba – friend and endorser of Asaram Bapu – was accused by many boys and young men, especially his students.

Asaram Bapu has received an attest from none other than his own son(!), Narayan Sai, as being ‘spotless’. What an attest to come from a person who is now charged in court for his sinister misdeeds and methods, including sexual harassment, abuse and threats plus heroin use, as the following reports show:-
Asaram Bapu’s character clean, says son Narayan Sai Zee Media Bureau New Delhi: Defending his father, Narayan Sai on Tuesday night said that the character of Asaram Bapu, who is in prison for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, is spotless. Speaking exclusively with Zee Media, Sai said that no matter who says what, people’s faith in Asaram won’t be shattered despite such allegations against his father.

Narayan Sai threatened to kill me: Asaram Bapu’s ex-personal assistant New Delhi, Sept 20: The former personal assistant of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu on Friday said that he is aware of wrongdoings by father-son duo. In an interview to ABP news, Mahendra Chawla, who served as Asaram’s PA for four years ( from 2001 to 2005), told that Asaram used to select girls by throwing fruits or prasad at them or even by pointing torch light at them. In startling revelations, Chawla also said that Asaram is addicted to opium drug and an NRI used to supply opium to him. Although, recently, in an interview, 74-year-old Asaram’s son, Narayan Sai had confidently denied drug allegations on his father. Chawla, who was reportedly indoctrinated by Asaram in 1995, not only made disclosures on Asaram, but he also revealed that Narayan Sai is also a father of a child, although he claims to be unmarried. Chawla, the former PRO of Sai, said that once he was badly beaten up by Sai and he even forced him to sign on five blank papers, so that he could show his murder as suicide, by writing a suicide note on paper signed by Chawla. Chawla also insisted that both father and son should undergo narco test to prove their innocence. He also questioned why Asaram needs only a “female vaidya” to monitor his health. He also asserted that those who dared to speak against Asaram or his son, were made silent and even police was under their pressure (because of their political clout) and hence, no cases were ever registered against the duo. Earlier, Chawla, a resident of Panipat, who used to look after Narayan Sai’s accounts, had accused him of forgery in land deals. After leaving Asaram’s ashram in 2005, Chawla told police that “after receiving threats, he decided to leave the ashram.” According to a report, in 2009, Chawla had also alleged that he had seen Sai performing black magic and gory rituals over corpses on at least three occasions in Jhabua (Madhya Pradesh), Ranchi (Jharkhand) and Himmatnagar (Gujarat).
