What's interesting now is that they are going after the PBK women too ... the CBI has filed a chargesheet against 59 women inmates of Rohini’s Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidyalaya. It has accused them of "rioting, unlawful assembly, obstructing public servant and wrongfully confining a Delhi High Court appointed committee" during an inspection in December 2017 calling them a "mob".

Which is pretty royal consider the videos above where a real mob from the street entered the building and started smashing it up.

So far we have seen a lot of accusations but little in the way of actual evidence and now, from the PBK women, counter accusations.

Personally, I don't believe in PBKism but aren't ordinary Indian women allowed the same "freedom of worship" that men or upper caste Indians are? I cannot help thinking that this heavy handed approach will end up being counter productive, encouraging the women's faith just as it did during the Om Mandli era.

Not knowing the BK mythology, the NGOs and High Court are doing exactly the wrong thing and appearing to fulfil the prediction of the religion, eg "as it was the beginning, so it will be in the end", may be even encouraging "End Time" convictions among the PBKs.

"They seek him here, they seek him there" ... Virendra Dev Dixit remains able to outwit the Indian CBI it appears.

Little to update ... it appears a few issues have been resolved "in mediation" and the court is looking to wrap things up by February of next year with nothing actually having happened.

It seems an investigation unit has been scouring India and raiding AIVV ashrams as far away as Jammu and Kashmir on health of the women followers and centre finances.

It found, "a three elderly ladies were residing inside the building ... Nothing incriminating was found and no item was seized during the search".

NEW Delhi: The Delhi high court on Thursday directed the CBI ..

NEW Delhi: The Delhi high court on Thursday directed the CBI to file a status report on the whereabouts of absconding preacher Virender Dev Dixit, in whose ashram girls were allegedly kept in illegal confinement, and the progress made in cases against him, including of rape.

A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao said it would monitor the cases being probed by the agency against Dixit and listed the matter for further hearing in February.

“Considering the fact that CBI has registered two cases for commission of various alleged offences committed in the institution, we direct filing of a status report by the agency,” the bench said. It also said that probe in the two cases be completed and brought to its logical conclusion.

The court was hearing a matter relating to alleged confinement of girls and women at the Adhyatmik Vidyalaya, run by its founder Dixit in Rohini area of Northwest Delhi. The bench was also informed that a matter relating to obstructing the members of a panel, constituted earlier by the court to inspect the Rohini ashram and its other
branches in Delhi, has been settled in mediation.

The persecution of Dev Dixit - rightly or wrongly - continues and spreads, this time to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.

I wonder how the campaign spread from Delhi to Jammu?

Who could have such a network to do so?

I wonder if the BKs are behind it?

Meanwhile in India, Judges have moved to 'Spare innocent men anguish': India ruling aims to end false rape claims.
“When a relationship ends, women who have had consensual sex make false accusations of rape under promise of marriage out of vengefulness, to hurt the man. Or they do it to extort money out of him, promising to withdraw the charge if he gives them what they want,”

For example, in one case ...
“The girl’s family agreed to withdraw the charge in return for 500,000 rupees (£5,400),” [a lawyer said]. “Tell me, would any parent settle for money rather than justice if she’s really been raped?”

In many cases, false rape accusations are simply the result of parents covering up the “shame” of an unmarried daughter having sex.

Research carried out in 2015 by journalist Rukmini Shrinivasan, who worked for the Hindu newspaper at the time, revealed that when parents discover their unmarried daughters are in a sexual relationship, their horror at potential “dishonour” to the family name leads many to make spurious allegations of rape, having first bullied their children into submission.

By their logic, saying a daughter has been raped is preferable to people thinking she is sexually active.

Men’s rights groups and some lawyers believe these false allegations of rape by women who have been in consensual relationships trivialise the seriousness of rape.
Two ashrams of godman raided in Jammu
December 06, 2018

Serious allegations were made by the petitioner in the PIL about the working of the ‘ashrams’ run by the self-styled godman.

The committee comprised Senior Additional Advocate General Seema Shekhar and Kavita Suri member of the J&K State Women Commission. The raid in Bhagwati Nagar continued till late Wednesday evening and efforts were made by the members of the commission, assisted by the state police, to dig details of disciples who are still visiting the ashram even in the absence of their self-styled ‘Guru’.

A group of elderly ladies were residing inside the building where several disciples turned up in the ashram on different occasions. These women were found to be from Bengal, Orissa and Maharashtra. The members of the commission quizzed caretakers present inside the building to find answers to numerous questions.

According to official sources, self-styled spiritual Guru, Virender Dev Dikshit is absconding ever since women and young girls were rescued from his ashram in North West Delhi in December 2017. Since then he is dodging sleuths of Central Bureau of Investigation. He is believed to be hiding somewhere in Nepal.

According to locals in the area, despite several complaints the police had not acted in advance. Locals in Bhagwati Nagar said, ”Ever since Virender Dev Dikshit went missing the local ashram in Bhagwati Nagar was not seized by the police”.

They said, “We lodged several complaints before the police to check the mysterious activities going on inside the building, rented by the caretakers of the ashram in the narrow lane opposite to Assa Ram Bapu Ashram in Bhagwati Nagar area”.

Referring to the modified caged structure, the locals said, “If the spiritual guru claims he is running some Adhyatmik
Vishwavidalya why the building has been converted in to a caged structure”. “Like other religious places the building could have been thrown open to all the disciples. Why grills have been fixed inside the rented building. People in the area are curious to know the nature of activities going on without any check in the area”, residents
of Bhagwati Nagar asked.

Owner of the building Mukesh Gupta claimed that he requested the caretakers to vacate the building on numerous occasions but instead of vacating the building they attacked him and threatened him with dire consequences.
In Dyalachak also the same team raided the ashram of godman Virendar Dev Dikhsit. At least half a dozen disciples including members of a family of Chunni Mahajan and Meena Devi were present there. The building in the area was owned by Veero Devi, official sources said.

Mukesh Gupta, owner of the Bhagwati Nagar building said, “Many girls from Dayalchak are missing. The locals briefed the committee about suspicious activities in these ashrams and the committee will submit the report to the Court.”

The saga rolls on with Indian intelligence department, the CBI, turning up at Virendra Dev Dixit's Kampil headquarters with the progress, news or result being ... absolutely nothing.

Virendra Dev Dixit is apparently still avoiding arrest on what appear to be entirely trumped up charges.

For the BKs, it's one less major opposition to deal with; they have the feeling that God is on their side. However, the opposition to BKism is like water in a sea. The opposition of the water cannot be removed; when some is drained away, it is replaced by others and in some cases the volume of the water of opposition increases as the BK teaching spreads globally.

"They seek him here ... they seek him there ...", but Virendra Dev Dixit remains The Scarlet Pimpernel of the BK world.

The latest news is ...

The Central Bureau of Intelligence are now offering ₹5 lakh reward for information on Dixit whereabouts.

500,000 Indian rupees is worth $7,100 US dollars at today's rate ... about 4 or 5 times the annual average income in India but significantly more for 100 millions who live off figures in low $100s of Dollars each year. Women or widows specifically included.

Will one of his adherents crack and grass him up ... are the BKs on his trail and hunting him down ... do we have any bounty hunters in the Brahmin world ... is he holed up in a cave or a compound somewhere, like an Osama bin Dixit?

The CBI wants to know.

Continuing the documentation of the persecution of Virendra Dev Dixit and the AIVV. Although I am neither a supporter nor a follower of the AIVV, I do note concerning parallels between the heavy handed - and one suspect loaded by the BKs - treatment by the authoritarian government authorities, and other failed efforts to crush cults in the West back in the 1970s. It is as is similar types in power have learned nothing from previous experiences. Indeed, I doubt they are even aware of them.

As usual, the BKs don't come off look good either.

Despite the involvement of the Central Bureau of Intelligence, all the stories appear to be coming up with the same line ... no evidence and no complaints.
Rescued girls ‘brainwashed’, claim to be happy with spiritual training

UDAIPUR: Counselling of the minor girls and interrogation of their mentors who were found from a hotel on Rajnagar road in a police raid on Wednesday, suggests they were ‘brainwashed’ and had taken the spiritual way to escape the miseries of life. Police had found 67 girls and 12 women from the hotel, which reportedly was a spiritual camp where the minor girls were being taught meditation and deeper knowledge.

Child rights activists and members of nodal agency working for the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) met the rescued minors who despite all the coaxing, sternly maintained that they were not kept there by force and were very happy in their present condition. “They seem to be hypnotised. All of them have been repeating the same lines in a row - I am happy, I am taking spiritual training, my mother brought me here,” Rishikant, an activist from Shakti Vahini, an organization addressing child trafficking and rescue missions told TOI.

The counsellors spoke to the girls on a one-to-one basis to find whether any one of them would divulge any detail but all in vain. “Many of the girls are from Gosaba area which is interior part of Sundarbans in West Bengal, some belong from the Bengladesh bordering villages hit by extreme poverty,” Rishikant said. Most of their stories had been similar as narrated to the counsellors. They said that they were going to schools and their mothers were very poor.

Some were orphans and living with their relatives. The girls said some people regularly came to their homes and educated them that spiritualism is the only way to get rid of all the miseries of life. So their mothers sent them to live in the ashram and now they are learning meditation, spiritual practices etc. and were quite happy. “It is quite astonishing that all these girls were sent by their mothers, none of them said their fathers sent them here, this suggests such families were intentional targets as the single women were perhaps battling financial difficulties and unable to sustain a livelihood,” Rishikant said.

On being asked whether the ashram had any connection to the Brahmakumaris organization at Abu Road (https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/topic/Abu-Road), Rishikant said that the women who were with the children informed them that Brahmakumaris demanded them to give all their belongings and money before taking them in and so they departed and made their own setup with a similar name.

“A few people have approached us claiming to be the parents of some of the girls but they cannot be trusted and are suspected to be the owners of the ashram. The hotel owner too is at fault because he didn’t inform the police when he permitted so many minor girls to congregate and stay at his place. Though the ashram is registered, however, before shifting minor girls from one place to another, the permission of the Child Welfare Committee of the concerning areas has to be taken which was not done in this case,” Bhawna Paliwal, chairperson of the CWC said.

Presently, the CWC, Childline and Balika Grah are together counselling these girls, while there is a strict vigil by police outside. District judges, collector and police officials too have been visiting the shelter home and taking their updates. “When we raided the place and began the rescue operation, these children were not willing to come with us and were adamant that two of their teachers were to be taken along. So looking at the sensitivity of the situation, we have brought two teachers to the shelter home,” said Bhojraj Padampura of Asra Vikas Sansthan, the shelter home where the kids are being kept.
