What do students of Class III in Jodhpur schools study for moral science? That rape-accused, self-styled godman Asaram Bapu is a “great saint”.

On page 40 of the book Naya Ujala, the rape-accused godman is featured with Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa, Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Dayanand. The book published by Delhi-based Gurukul Prakashan, claims to be based on NCERT’s Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation guidelines.

However, Jodhpur District Education Officer said he did not have any information on the matter. “There is no such information that we have. How can we act if there is no information?” District Education Officer (elementary education) Prabhu Lal Panwar told The Indian Express.

    Mind You Paid Media, being accused is not the same thing as being Charged. There is no viable proof and Bapuji will be freed soon. Fabricated stories fall-off sooner or later !

          And when the w World respect and approve Mother Theresa how can one say that she had many allegations against her. Can you put up any one?. I also want to study about that .

            This is the main problem of our educational system. I think the person in the editorial board of that publication was an Illiterate because if he was a literate he would have known about the case and would have removed Asaramji,s name from the book before the book came out to schools. Or the other chance is that he or she must be a devotee of Asaramji. And this is why we have no much development in our Educational system compared to other countries. We need people who are sensible and who are not influenced by anyone or anything as editors or the head of publications of educational books. Please think over people . Do reply
