It is a well-known fact that the former international working president of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) – Shri Ashok Singhal Ji and the BJP MP as well as renowned jurist – Dr. Subramanym Swamy Ji have contributed greatly to the cause of building of Ram temple at the birth place of Lord Rama. Both of these leaders have also strongly advocated one more crucial issue and that is the acquittal of Sant shri Asharam Bapu Ji. Both of them have vehemently stated on several platforms that Bapu Ji is innocent, and that he has been framed in a fabricated case and hence he should be acquitted at the earliest. Both of these great leaders have travelled to Jodhpur to meet Pujya Bapu Ji.
After meeting with Sant Shri Asharam Bapu Ji at Jodhpur Central jail, Singhal Ji, while addressing the media said, “Anyone can be trapped by misuse of the law. This case and all the allegations levelled against Asharam Bapu Ji are concocted and the entire story is cooked-up. Bapu Ji at the age of 80 years (the age at that time) has been immensely persecuted and by using his name and this fabricated case as a means, it is an assault like an axe on the heads of Hindu Saints and the entire Hindu community. Bapu Ji till today has been working for the revival of our Hindu culture. The entire Hindu community will remain indebted to Bapu Ji for the great work of making even tribal people and forest dwellers believers in our culture and they shall never be able to repay the debt they owe to him. This great personality has initiated various types of philanthropic activities in the backward area. Apparently, those who cannot tolerate his huge efforts and work in this regard, wish to defame him in the same way as Shankracharya Shri Jayendra Saraswwati Ji was defamed. Big forces are working here and donate huge funds to create an antipathetic environment against Hindu Dharma in India. They have no idea about Hindu roots. They may destroy themselves but may never be able to demolish us as God Himself has started Hindu Dhrama and He is the saviour of it.”
