Modern fake saints

India has a special place for saints and sages in the society, therefore, we find so many of them in India. The saints are present in every religion and people have very high beliefs them. Hindu society is full of these saints. I am not against the saints because these saints have done good work for the betterment of the Hindu society.

At some time, we hear about undignified stories related to the saints. The living example is the case of Bapu Asha Ram which has shamed the entire country. Today, many saintly people have wrongly taken advantage of the blind faith of people to carry out their illegal activities and to gain wealth. Within a few years, these saints collect so much of money and assets, which probably the biggest businessmen may fail to achieve in the whole life. These people have started a business in the name of faith, and is getting bigger.

In no time, a poor and unsuccessful person, becomes a rich and famous saint. Radhe maa and Nirmal Baba, are great examples of how a frustrated person can make a property of millions crores by playing with the religious faith of ordinary people.

Today money has become so dominating factor that no person (with whatever past record) can become a big saint with help of money. Sachin Dutta's case is a clear example how a person involved in wrong deads can become a Mahamandleshwar with the power of money and influence. A true saint is one who is away from kitsch, greed, attachment and ego. Whole of India just saw some objectionable photos and video of Radhe maa, such behavior don't expect from saints.

People are also responsible for encouraging such fraud Gurus, if people stop following such fraud saints, then soon they will disappear. If we did not boycott these fake saints, then we are only making our society weak. Rather than spend billions on these tube saints, we can benefit millions of poor. For this we have to think like humans and avoid superstition.
