Asaram termed ‘Great Saint’ in Moral Science book


Jodhpur: Although he has been accused and is behind the bars over allegations of sexual harassment being leveled against him, self-styled Godman Asaram Bapu has been depicted as a great Saint in Class 3 textbook in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur creating fresh controversy.

The Moral Science book where he has been depicted as a saint is published by a Delhi based Publisher along with other saints like Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa and Ramakrishna Paramhansa. The Jodhpur District Education department has assured a fair probe into the matter while parents have demanded strong action against this.

Asaram has been in jail since August 2013 on the charges of sexual assault following a complaint by a 16 year old girl who alleged that he had assaulted her at his ashram in Jodhpur.
