24-Jan-2010 07:17:10 Bapu Asaram made obscene gestures and publicly ridiculed eunuchs during his Satsang program. This was the headline in some national level news channels. Once again, some of the media channels are prompt in alleging Hindu saints using self made news and particularly, Sant Asaram Bapu ji seems to be their prime target. Many national level news channels broadcasted a video in which Asaram Bapu ji was citing an example of eunuch named Kamla Bua (Kinnar) who contested general elections from Sagar, Madhya Pradesh. She defeated the candidates of congress party and BJP and won accolades from all corners for her wisdom. Even her opponents praised her.
In Ujjain Satsang, Sant Asaram Bapu narrated the extraordinary success story of eunuch Kamla to his followers in a very encouraging style. Further praising the wisdom of this eunuch leader, the Sant Asaram Bapu told that she took people across people from all religions in her favor and won the elections. Sant Asaram Bapu further told his followers that she developed patience and self-confidence that enabled her to win this election. One can see the original video here. After watching this video you can easily judge from yourself that does this encouragement and praising of eunuch Kamla fall under category of obscene gestures.
