Reality Of Bageshwar Dham Baba

Starting with the Bageshwar baba, the person donning the persona is Dhirendra Shastri. Who comes from Madhya Pradesh. In April last year, he was preaching in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar, where he called out to all Hindus to unite, and have bulldozers run over the homes of ‘Stone-pelters’. An obvious political reference to the actions being taken in Uttar Pradesh. After that, he went on to ask everyone to take up arms, but of everyone who takes up arms, what is the police for? It was quite obviously a communal speech aimed at disrupting public peace.

As if it wasn’t enough to insult law and order, Dhirendra was back in news for allegedly practicing untouchability. Here Shyam Manav enters our story. Shyam Manav is the National convenor of the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti. The organization was founded to fight against superstitions. But in August 2013, unfortunately, Narendra Dabholkar was murdered and shot to death. Shyam Manav has busted more than 200 such fraud Babas. Dhirendra Shastri was in Nagpur. Shyam Manav found out that he was there for Ram Khata. But then, he found out that the ‘Baba’ was holding his court over there.

Apart from informing the police, Shyam Manav challenged Dhirendra as well. Two challenges. First, to identify 10 people in a room, Dhirendra had to guess their names, father’s names, ages, and phone numbers. And the second challenge was to predict 10 items kept in the room next door. Shyam Manav claims that if the Baba could answer with even 90% accuracy, He will give him a reward of rupees 3 million. Shyam Manav agrees to bow down to his feet if the Baba won. On the poster of the event, it was mentioned that it would last till 13th January. But Dhirendra left Nagpur on 11th January. Shyam Manav called him a deserter.

In his response, Dhirendra claimed that he did not flee. The Ram Katha was scheduled for 11th January. And that if Shyam Manav was keen on giving him a challenge, He can do so in Raipur. The question arises, why do people fall for this comment? Illiteracy can be said to be a reason. But this cannot be the only reason. The second reason can be the faults in our Indian education system. the third reason is faith. People have no one they can turn to with their problems and so they go to the conmen.

So, friends, this was wholly about the Reality Of Bageshwar Dham Baba.
