Quote# 124691

[Bolding mine]

NEW DELHI: Godman Asaram Bapu, who has been in Jodhpur Central Jail since September 2 on charges of raping a minor, has welcomed the victory of the BJP in assembly elections in four states.

Talking to the media at the court of District and Sessions Judge Manoj Kumar Vyas in Jodhpur, the controversial godman blamed the Congress for framing him in the alleged rape case. He said his `curse’ is behind the defeat of the Congress in Rajasthan – where he is lodged in jail – and Delhi.

Referring to the win of the BJP as `the victory of truth,’ Asaram Bapu said, “People know everything what’s happening around.’’


The godman and four of his associates have been charged under Sections 342 (wrongful confinement), 376(2) (f) (rape of minor girl), 376 D (rape), 354-A (outraging the modesty of a woman), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 109 (abetment to an offence) of the Indian Penal Code.

If found guilty, Asaram and the co-accused could be sentenced from 10 years to life term.

Doubting Thomas

the controversial godman blamed the Congress for framing him


The exact same excuse made by every religious leader ever charged with a sex crime.

I don't think sucking up to the new boss will get you out of jail, Bapu.
Or at least, I hope it won't.

FYI, Asaram Bapu is the author of this vile quote where he said the Delhi gang rape victim had basically it coming.

The spiritual leader’s remarks could be paraphrased thus: Those who were at fault were drunk. Had she taken guru diksha and chanted the Saraswati Mantra, she would not have boarded any random bus after watching a movie with her boyfriend. Even if she did, she should have taken God’s name and asked for mercy.

She should have called them brothers, fallen at their feet and pleaded for mercy. Had she said, “I am a weak woman, you are my brothers”, such brutality would not have happened.

The self-proclaimed godman also said he was against harsher punishments for rape accused as such laws could be misused.


EDIT: Fixed error on town name and added the quote.

"He said his `curse’ is behind the defeat of the Congress in Rajasthan"

His curse has also been attributed with making the cheese in the district ever so slightly runny.

"Asaram and the co-accused could be sentenced from 10 years to life term."

He'll have plenty of time to win elections then.

*BAAARRRFFF* Ugh!
What Bapu suggests is like some sexually promiscuous, drug-using, Rock music loving High School jock politely asking Jason Voorhees not to chop him into pieces.

Bapu is both sexally abusive slime AND incredibly stupid.

Also; As far as a mantra for protection goes....wouldn't invoking Durga make more sense? She's the one who kicks butt....or Kalika....

....I wish Kalika was a literal being rather than a cosmic archetype because I'd love to see her make "Puree Of Rapist".

I'd say it's high time for women to invoke their inner-Kalika....

....and put THE FEAR OF ADI SHAKTI into the hearts of misogynist males everywhere.

When the Powers That Be can't or refuse to protect you, you best just learn to protect yourself!

For all it's male-chauvinism, India's majority follows a spiritual tradition that has surprisingly SUPER-AWESOME BUTT-KICKING GODDESSES who are often STRONGER THAN THE MALE GODS. In Dharmic thought....The Active Principle/Power is a FEMININE thing.

As a ShaktaPagan; I'd say it's high time for Hindus to go back to their earliest roots and ditch the misogyny and sexual and social repression.



@Anon-e-moose
Where are your gods, now?

They're still there....and they don't like ugly. Bapu has displeased them and AdiShakti has made sure he gets sent to The Can.

TO BAPU AND THE RAPIST DUDES....

....BIG MOTHER IS WATCHING YOU!!!
