Should the law be same for godmen and common man?
Asaram Bapu has been accused of raping a 16-year-old Jodhpur girl. Despite the serious charge, Asaram is yet to be taken into custody. Should godmen like Asaram be given preferential treatment? Consider these points before you decide.

a) Police are afraid to take action against godmen because they fear hurting public sentiment.

b) Local police go easy on godmen as turning a blind eye to a complaint is easier than arresting a 'revered person' with a large following.

c) Godmen often get away with illegal acts with their political clout and by whipping up passions of their followers.

  • Should police treat godmen with exactly the same yardstick as they treat any other citizens?
