Millions of people follow the so called spritual leaders and gurus in our country. One of the oldest and most followed such name is Asaram Bapu. But you will be shocked when you learn what is busy preaching these days. In one of his recent public meetings/discourses, the guru decided he should give his valuable opinion about the most popular topic these days - the Delhi gang rape incident. This is what the spiritual leader preached to his followers:
"Only 5-6 people are not the culprits. The victim daughter 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. We have often seen such laws are made to be misutilised... Dowry harassment law is the biggest example."
This statement comes at a time when the whole country is protesting against such crimes and asking for stringent laws to curb atrocities on women. But our leaders and politicians just cannot help being themselves even at this time. Why can't they understand that they have a larger responsibility because millions of people follow their words? If this is what our spiritual leaders preach, then we can certainly forget about ever ensuring safety of women in this country.
