Acharya Dhirendra Shastri, the Mahant of Madhya Pradesh’s (MP) Baba Bageshwar Dham, has been given clean chit by the Nagpur police. However, the personal attacks and slander against him by Hinduphobic forces have continued unabated. This is hardly surprising considering the fact that Acharya has stood up to the conversion mafia.
“The Bageshwar Dham Temple is situated in the Chhatarpur district of Madhya Pradesh. The temple is devoted to Lord Hanuman. 26-year-old Dhirendra Krishna Shastri originally was Dhirendra Krishna Garg. Shastri is the Mahant (head priest) of the temple and is popularly called Bageshwar Dham Sarkar”, notes OpIndia.
Nagpur police’s clean chit to Acharya Dhirendra Shastri
Speaking to the media, Nagpur Police said that after carefully examining the videos they have concluded that Acharya Dhirendra Shastri hasn’t violated any provision of Maharashtra’s anti-witchcraft Act or any other law. Nagpur CP (Commissioner of Police) Amitesh Kumar in his statement reiterated that they weren’t under any pressure and were studying the videos in detail.
The police highlighted that several issues raised by the complainant Shyam Manav don’t pertain to Nagpur and those from Nagpur are within the framework of the law. We went through six hours of tape of the Divya Darbar and were checking borderline issues in detail to be sure that they are legally sound.
Although it took us time to finish our investigation, we can say with confidence that there is no offence. ACP (Crime) Roshan Patil sent a signed letter to ‘activist’ Shyam Manav confirming that the video clippings show no violence and that the file has been closed.
“Meanwhile, Hindu Rashtra Sena, a Mumbai-based organization, has sent a complaint against Manav at the Kotwali police station. It has alleged that an inquiry under PMLA should be conducted against Andh Shradha Nirmulan Samiti headed by Manav over the source of its funds”, highlighted ToI.
Manav is the head of Andh Shraddha Nirmulan Samiti, founded by Narendra Dabholkar, which is known to selectively target Hindu Dharmic practices. Interestingly but not surprisingly, Manav who claims to be an activist was part of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo (Todo) Yatra.
Which speaks volumes about his political alliance as well as highlights the anti-Hindu nature of the Congress. Has Manav, who cast aspersions on Acharya Dhirendra Shastri, found the time and courage to question Christian missionaries and Islamic Maulvis who provide ‘miracle cures’? The Samiti has repeatedly targeted Hindus clearly indicating an ulterior motive for their so-called fight against superstitions.
Shri Rajiv Dixit highlighted that Samiti gets funds from America. Dixit pointed out that Dabholkar had admitted that the organization gets both funds as well as concept/ideas/thought process comes from the US. Dixit also said that when he asked Dabholkar about the superstitions spread by Christian missionaries, the latter had no answers and ultimately replied saying “what Christianity does is faith, what Hindu Dharma does is superstition”.
When journalist Pradeep Bhandari called Manav for a one-on-one debate with Acharya, he simply evaded the question by saying “things don’t work like that”. If Manav was honest and not working on an agenda, wouldn’t he have accepted Pradeep’s offer instead of finding excuses?
It must be pointed out that Acharya Dhirendra Shastri was in Nagpur from January 5 to 11 conducting Ramkatha. He asked why Manav didn’t challenge him when he was present in Nagpur. After this Katha concluded, Shyam Manav, accused the Mahant of spreading ‘superstition’ and announced a reward of 30 lakh rupees on Dhirendra Krishna Shastri for showing miracles during the Darbaar.
Why are Hinduphobes attacking Bageshwar Dham Sarkar?
It is, therefore, amply clear that Acharya Dhirendra Shastri is being deliberately targeted. And the reason for the entire cabal attacking him isn’t hard to fathom. Acharya Dhirendra Shastri is one of those rare Hindu spiritual leaders who have a clear vision and doesn’t mince words before calling out the conversion (both Christian & Islamic) and the love jihad mafia.
Acharya highlighted that he is being targeted because his Ghar Wapsi programs have irked the conversion mafia. “From the time I’ve taken up the Ghar Wapsi issue for Sanatan Dharma, I’ve been facing attacks and conspiracies are being hatched against me. However, I won’t give up and I appeal to you all to continue the fight for Sanatan Dharma”, he said.
Regarding the Nagpur issue Bageshwar Dham Sarkar said that they haven’t yet received any legal challenge while adding he has invited Manav to attend his Darbar so that things become crystal clear. Furthermore, he questioned why has the Samiti never taken action against Padres and why it has never spoken out against the forced religious conversions carried out by them.
“I do not spread any superstition but only conduct prayers in the name of Bhagwan Hanuman. How does this amount to witchcraft (Jaadu-Tona)? How do you decide what is faith and what amounts to superstition? In Bharat, there are several sampradays that only their followers and practitioners would understand. But they are the personal faith of those sampradays”, the Mahant questioned.
He concluded by saying that he would continue his fight against the conversion mafia, stop conversions, continue his Ghar Wapsi programs, spread Sanatan Dharma, and hoist the Hindu flag across Bharat with the blessings of Sadhus and Sants.
“These people have not spared Prabhu Sri Ram, so we are commoners. We don’t need to run away or feel threatened by them. We all sincerely hope that you will check your facts before listening to any of these people speak. Then trust them because this is a cautiously orchestrated conspiracy. We are bringing the converts back to Hinduism. They are spending crores on conversion. So what would be wrong with spending 10 crores on us? “, the Acharya told Sudarshan News.
The Mahant is credited with bringing back 300 converted Hindus to Hindu Dharma during a Ramkatha program on Christmas last year. No wonder, he has upset the Christian missionary mafia that appears to now be using its foot soldiers like the Andhshraddha Nirmulan Samiti and pliable Hinduphobic Indian media elements.
Acharya Dhirendra Shastri is immensely popular across social media platforms and has repeatedly asked Hindus to refrain from visiting Dargahs and Churches and stay true to Sanatan Dharma.
Baba Ramdev and other Hindu spiritual leaders come out in support of Acharya Dhirendra Shastri
“Religious terrorism is going on in the country with attempts being made to show Hindu Sanatan Dharma in a poor light. Insulting remarks are being passed by many people against Hindu Shastras and great men associated with the Sanatan tradition. They are all anti-India and are acting at the behest of international forces by showing disrespect to the country. They should be strongly opposed,” Ramdev told reporters in reply to a question about the controversy surrounding Bageshwar Dham Mahant Acharya Dhirendra Krishna Shastri.
Baba Ramdev had earlier expressed his support for the Mahant while speaking in the presence of Shastri’s Guru Jagadguru Swami Rambhadracharya. “Swamiji these days many people are slandering your Shishya. I want to tell them if you want to see Bhgawan’s grace without sight then see it in Pujya Rambhadracharyaji and if you want to see it through external vision then see it in his Shishya Dhirendra Krishna Shastri”, Baba said.
Baba Ramdev further pointed out that those who are blessed by Bhagwan and Guru are able to get rid of their pain and problems and that is what Maharaj’s Shishya is doing. He said that what our eyes can see is only 1 per cent while 99 per cent of the universe is invisible. Even Kalicharan Maharaj has supported Acharya Dhirendra Shastri.
At a time when Hindus should be uniting against Hinduphobic forces, we also had Hindu spiritual leaders like Joshimath Shankaracharya Avimukteshwaranand wanting Acharya Dhirendra to perform ‘miracles’ in Joshimath where cracks have appeared. It is this faultline among Hindus that is exploited by the anti-Hindu cabal.
There is a concerted effort, particularly by the anti-Bharat & Hinduphobic cabal, where liberal media outlets such as Amar Ujala have plumbed new depths of indecency and immorality by spreading rumours about the Mahant and his private life.
Hindu Dharma Gurus, spiritual leaders, and change-makers from any walk of life are increasingly being slandered by footsoldiers of those who don’t want the Hindu masses to be awakened. What bothers the likes of Shyam Manav is that Hindus have realised the threat of religious conversions by both Christians and Islamist conversion mafia, love jihad, and land jihad and are now vocal about it as evident from the recent Jan Aakrosh rallies in Pune and Mumbai.
If there is one thing that the Abrahamics and their brown coolies hate the most, it is a self-aware and proud Hindu wearing his/her religion on the sleeve. Spiritual leaders like Acharya Dhirendra Shastri are bringing about that self-awareness and instilling Hindu pride in the masses and are thereby putting themselves in the direct line of fire of the Hinduphobic forces.
Sanatanis must awake fully and act strongly against conversion love jihad land jihad and destroy jihadis and aatankis fully we must support saints like Baba Bageshwar Dham who is committed to Sanatanis We should also culcate sanatani culture in our children jai Sriram har har mahadev jai hindu rashtra Bharat
Superstitions? LOL. Just take a look at the video of ANY Yeshu-sabha, in Punjab or any other state. You will see paid actors performing all kinds of weird movements, collapsing on ground etc. Then the pastor will come and say “in name of Jesus, you are cured” and the person will immediately get up. Paid clappers in audience will clap and fools will believe they have witnessed a miracle.
Actually, doing such things in most western countries can be charged with fraud. You cannot fool people like the way pastors in India do routinely. Such road shows used to happen in the west also 150 years back, but were finally rejected by people as falling squarely in “fraud and superstition” category.
