Never bowed down to Foreign Funded Media
Many Foreign Funded Media Channels tried to threaten Pujya Bapuji time-to-time that If he doesn't send them 25-50 lakhs Rupees worth of packages then they will show even more negative news against him and his organization.
Pujya Bapuji not only clearly refused them to pay a single penny but also challenged them to write and show even more negativity.
He said that he would rather use the charity money for the welfare of poor than giving it away to those traitors to our country who run media channels.
