Bane Of Hinduism Are The Sadhus And Babas And They Have Lots Of Support

Hinduism is an old religion but one of its pillars are sadhus and so-called god-men. These men are adulated and their faults looked away or ignored by even sane men and that has no explanation

One of the pillars of Hinduism is the Sadhu or the man who is supposed to have renounced life.He is usually referred to as Baba by common people. The word 'baba' also means grandfather, father, or uncle, in many Indian languages.  These characters have been around since the dawn of Hinduism, which is incidentally the oldest religion in the world.

Hinduism extols the virtues of the sadhu and over centuries this concept of the God-man is deeply ingrained into Hindu psyche. The result is that almost 90%( I can be wrong on the percentage) believe these men can help them attain salvation. The result is

simply catastrophic. Why? because a vast majority of these babas are simply con-men playing on the Hindu psyche and they want nothing more than a good girl in bed and lots of money. The gullible feed them and I am aware of umpteen women who willingly give themselves to these sadhus and so-called mystics
with the sure hope that copulation with them will lead to eternal bliss. I will say they do get some bliss anyway.

This phenomenon is not confined to Hindus and the Muslim Pir is also part of this scenario.  Otherwise, the case of the Muslim Pir in Pakistan Punjab who impregnated 300 women in the hope that sex with him will mean a son would not have taken place. In India, we have the latest case of Baba Ram Rahim and earlier Asa Ram. Yet, these worthies command a lot of support even now. What could be the reason? Socialists must study the Hindu psyche which allows blind belief even if baba rapes or even kills and are prepared to condone all his acts in the hope that he is GOD.

    Now that I only learned that Babas and Sadhus are the same comparison with priests or pastors in Christianity. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Yes, a lot of Babas and sadhus are a bane for Hinduism, but then are only as much a bane to Hinduism as the maulanas are to Islam and the priests are to Christianity. The greatest bane to Hindu tatva is that this country had governments which were more apologetic about their hindu identity for 60 years. For the past 60 years,this country was ruled by governments that wasn't able to emphasize with authority that hinduism is not an organized religion and is a way of life of this country, instead history writing was reduced to targeting and demeaning Hindu tatva.
