Upset over the comments made by the spokesperson of Asaram Bapu on a recent television show comparing him to Sikh Guru and other saints, the Sikh community of Pune lodged a complaint at the Swargate police station against him on Monday.
The people of the community said that the outrageous comment made by Neelam Dubey, the spokesperson of Asaram Bapu who compared Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, and other spiritual saints with Asaram Bapu stating that these saints too were punished and jailed, just like Asaram Bapu, who is mired in controversy now.
Rajwant Singh, member of Sikh Sangat said, “Neelam Dubey indirectly indicated that these spiritual saints were also criminal and rapists, when she compared Asaram to these saints. Asaram has rape charges and other criminal cases against him, unlike our saints. What does her statement imply?”
