It's unfortunate to Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma) that there are apparently some fake Babas or Swamis who exploit gullible people in India and abroad. Even few famous saints or Swamis face legal allegations in India and either they will be convicted or acquitted of alleged crime.
Obviously most users on this site are enthusiasts who like studying scriptures (either on their own or under guidance of a Guru) and don't know nitty-gritty of those allegations or legal details, unless if users work in courts or law enthusiasts . As per site rules, we allow "words of saints" as acceptable source. Followers of these Swamis say they were framed and general public have different opinions.
Now, it is tedious to decide whether we should allow words of those saints who face the allegations. I will try to divide it into three categories and let's see those three categories (do mention in comments if i miss anything).
- Swamis who face allegations and verdict has yet to announced by Judiciary (Indian or abroad)?
- Swamis who are convicted of a crime?
- Swamis who are acquitted by court?
Post your opinions as answers and let's decide what should be the community stand on words of saints who face allegations?
