It is totally unbelievable that such a person who has proven his love and kindness for more than six years in meditation would be capable of such a violent act. besides, what type of person would subject himself to such a treatment without defending himself from such cruelty from a twenty hear old?

Please read the following article in response to world newspapers. It is really quite unpardonable that the world news, without much thought, would take the word of 17 armed aggressors over a Tapasvi who has fastidiously meditated for over 5 years and adheres to the Pancha Sila. http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-476289 Global Dervish, San Francisco, USA

DIWAKAR BHANDARI

Diwakar Bhandari PATHLAIYA: Ram Bahadur Bamjan who claims to have been meditating for world peace and for the welfare of human beings for the past seven years had been dragged into controversy on several occasions, but every time police find some excuse not to book him under the existing laws.

Early this month, Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangh that has been protecting Bamjan pulled into debate over the allegation of keeping two women in hostage for three months on charges that they want to ‘distract’ his meditation.

Bamjan’s followers kept the Slovak woman Marichi and another woman from Sindupalchowk in captivity. The duo was released after the news regarding them was published across the national media. However, the police are yet to take legal action to Bamjan and his aides.

Prior to this, he was pulled into another dispute when Bamjan was found to be meditating under a peepal tree in Ratanpur on May 16, 2005. Though he claimed to be meditating without food and water, those claims are yet to be proved. When the local administration had attempted to confirm it by sending a medical team from DPHO, his aides prevented the team to perform their job saying that it would break his meditation.

Bamjan, who preaches against violence, hacked a local youth with a sword critically injuring him two years ago. He disappeared after the incident for nine months. Later he was found in Bagjhor forest with a sword, but no action was taken against him .

When Bamjan changed his place of meditation after the incident and shifted to Halkhoriya forest, his followers had put up a three-square kilometer wire fence in the national forest. However, District Forest Office failed to take any action.

Bamjan had beaten up 17 locals of Bara Manarwa about one-and-half year ago detaining them for 24 hours as they had entered inside his fence in search of wild shoots and fruits. The victims filed FIR against Bamjan, but no action was taken.

While there’s no end to his and his aides taking law into their hand, the police apparently seem to have different laws for different people.
