After Ram Jethmalani, Subramanian Swamy to argue for Asaram

In August 2013, the 16-year-old inmate of Asaram's Chhindwara ashram in Madhya Pradesh had accused him of sexually assaulting her at a farmhouse in Jodhpur on the pretext of treating her.

Living up to his promise made to Asaram, BJP leader and leading lawyer Subramanian Swamy on Saturday moved a bail application in a trial court here and will be arguing for the release of the self-styled godman.

Swamy’s assistants appeared in the court to submit the application.

Judge Manoj Kumar Vyas allowed the application and has listed the matter for arguments on Tuesday.

“Swamy himself will be coming on May 26 to argue on the bail application,” said an assistant advocate, who appeared in the court with the application.

Swamy had come to Jodhpur on April 23 and had visited Asaram in the jail, where he has been lodged for over a year and a half.

Expressing sympathy with Asaram, Swamy had compared his case with the political leaders like Lalu Yadav and Jayalalitha and had termed his case a fit one deserving bail.

Prominent lawyers of the country like Ram Jethmalani and Salman Khurshid apart from many other ace advocates have pleaded hard to get bail for Asaram but in vain.

In August 2013, the 16-year-old inmate of Asaram’s Chhindwara ashram in Madhya Pradesh had accused him of sexually assaulting her at a farmhouse in Jodhpur on the pretext of treating her.

The girl’s parents were allegedly advised by the warden of self-styled godman to take her to the Asaram to rid her off evil spirits.

        From Congress ex-minister & leader Salman Khurshid to NDA fireb leader Subramaniam Swamy and even top lawyer Ram Jethmalani al come together to defend Asaram Bapu in a crime case. Is Asaram Bapu that innocent and needs protection to this level where people forget party barriers and join the bandwagon? Previously congress had given w support to Vajpayee ji government in Kargil War when the country as a w was challenged. That was expected out of a democratic party. But what makes Asaram Bapu that important for the political big-shots?

          It is very sad to know that such a fine lawyer of this nation, despite they know the truth that Asaram is a rapist and big cheater, they have applied for his bail. It would have been better that these duo should have fought the case to get him behind the bar for the life term.

                  What is he ( SS) upto? what does he wants to prove, Asaram is guilty thats why he is languishing in jail, if SS is so concerned about our law, than he should fight for the innocent people are in jails for want of hiring a proper advocate and law knowledge. This is absurd of protecting someone who has done crime. The w world know about his crime and recent elimination / attempt to kill the witnesses proves this case black and white. We all know that SS always wants to be in limelight and his ego has hurt by J Jaylalilta's case. Why he does not argue on behalf of the victims. God know what is he upto. I pray that the justice prevails and punishes the guilty one.

                    Ache din aae Aasa ram, This governement is helping all the people who it likes and who were there weapons to fight the Elections, First Narender Modi himself got a clean chit for Gujrat Riots which everybody knows was a preplanned and readymade judgement, because even a crazy man will not agry that such a major carnage had happened without the involvement of Cheif Minister of State, next was Amit Shah, than the cops involved in Fake encounters of Ishrat Jahan and Saurabuddin, they had not only given the clean chit but also given there jobs back, next was Salman Khan and jailalitha, one who endorsed Narender Modi and another who supported Narender Modi and now Asram and than it will be Sadhivi para and his counter part who supported her in the blasts and this will be coming soon. The Judicial Sysytem Of India is the Slave of Politics and politicians. Samajhne waale samjh e jo na samjhe wo anadi hain

                      Ache din for all the criminals who Supported BJP, First it was Mr.Narender MOdi himself who got clean chit for Gujrat Riots, which even a crazy man will not beleive is true, because a riot of such size is not possible without using govrnement machinery and involvement of cheif minister him self, next was Amit Shah and few police officers who were very near and dear to BJP, than Salman Khan and Jailalitha, one who endorsed Modi and one who supported him, and Now Aasaram and next will be sadhvi Pragya and clonel Prohit offcourse and you all will see this in very near Future. The Judicial system of our country is the slave in the hands of these politicians and judges are mouth peice of them,Sabko haath sirf BJP ke supporters ka VIkas.

                            well, it is not only Asaram almost all the modern self proclaimed Gurujis, Babajis, swamijis, Sanniasis, Maharishis are well renowned for their immoral behaviour (immoral only for others and not for them) and are often millioners 0r billioners, ders..often involved in murders....and the pity or irony is that there are also thousands of people to be behind them, to back them and to save them

                              I see a lot of comments here presuming guilt for Asharam bapu? What is the basis of these presumptions? Media frenzy? Orchestrated feminist campaigns? Supposed this happens to you tomorrow? Or your father..brother..friend? And you don't get a hearing because you are a man and hence presumed guilty? This is exactly what happened with poor Sharif ali in Dimapur. A blackmailer brought a charge of rape..as usual he was presumed guilty and jailed ( just because he was a man) and then the media pronounced him guilty. Next he was dragged out and lynched and burned and hanged ! Wow ! Jai Ho India !

                                Dear Mr.S Swamy..I have taken a back to listen that you are indirectly supporting a devil like Asharam, Just go through his history before advocating him. I am a business person and trying our level best to support the social & legal system of our country, There are numbers of issue please help the country. One fine day you have to reply for your KARMA, Please be away from this race of Name & Fame , we all know about our legal system , kindly have a mercy on common people. Asharam & his son is mentally sick and it is request from common man to be away from such cases.

                                      I always had a great respect for Mr. Swamy. I have always admired your fearless image and support to hindutava. But Today you have actually disappointed me. Supporting a "rapist". I mean you can't do that. He is the culprit and we all know that and I believe you also know that. If you are supporting him just because he is a Hindu saint then I think you should also support the girl who was raped as she was also a hindu. It seems you are only supporting him because of money which Asaram has earned from fool Indian mes. I thought you were man of ideologies, man of principles but I believe my opinion was wrong.

                                          Goo day, S,Swamy is doing a ridiculous thing for providing legal support to Asaram. Delhi rape accused victim's advocates also did the same thing. There are certain things beyond & above law. Lalu & Jaya CASES ARE PURELY CORRUPTIN POLITICAL JUDICIARY WEAKNESS, IS NOT WORTH COMPARISON HERE........ Though I SUPPORTTED so many of his initiatives , like case against Jayalalitha, 2G etc ,I have to say ASARAM DOES NOT DESERVE SYMPATHY FOR HIS ARROGANCE & DILUTING & ING THE SPIRITUALITY TO HIS PLEASURE SOLUTIONS.....MAKING LADIES HIS VICTIMS....., Advocate RamJethmalani too did the unethical practice by appearing for his bail......Forget SalmanKhan, KAPIL and the ilks, one need to wonder only if they do not go for his release.....Why Dr Swamy....???
