Human Rights Violations – Victims of Asaram Bapu from Newspapers & TV clippings & Real court documents

Problems aplenty — asaram bapu

It is not easy being Asaram Bapu, at least not after facing a series of charges including land-grabbing and taking religious followers for a ride.

He has become the target of yet another attack, this time by a tantrik Oghad Sukharam.

The tantrik has accused him of asking him to use black magic to kill two local media barons and four of his former colleagues, who Bapu believes are responsible for the vilification campaign against him.

Sukharam produced two recorded conversations in which the godman talks of the ritual to be conducted.

According to him, Shreyans Shah of Gujarat Samachar and Parth Falgun Patel of Sandesh were on Bapu’s hit list.

The two papers had been at the forefront of the campaign against Bapu.

Apart from Bapu’s conversations, Sukharam also produced tapes of his conversations with some of Bapu’s right-hand men, who talked of paying him Rs 1 lakh as fee.

These phone numbers can be traced to Bapu’s followers in Delhi.

His camp has, however, rubbished these claims calling it yet another falsehood to “demolish his image of a spiritual giant”.
