Dhirendra Shastri, the storyteller of Bageshwar Dham, who is always in controversy due to his statement, has once again come into the limelight. Satsang of Dhirendra Shastri (Bageshwar Baba) is going on in Mohadi town of Bhandara district. He has criticized Baba Jumdev Ji Thubrikar, the founder of Manav Dharma, by making objectionable statements in the satsang. Because of this, a complaint has been lodged against Dhirendra Shastri at various police stations in Bhandara Gondia district due to the heartache of lakhs of servants. However, as the police did not take any action, the servants directly reached the police station.

Case Registered

Dhirendra Shastri’s satsang ceremony is going on in Mohadi town of Bhandara district. Speaking of this, Dhirendra Shastri has criticized the founder of Manav Dharma Baba Jumdevji Thubrikar by making an offensive statement. Because of this, the sentiments of millions of servants of Jumdevji Thubrikar were hurt. Immediately the devotees reached the police station and filed a complaint against Dhirendra Shastri. But still no action has been taken. Hence thousands of servants reached Mohadi Police Station. Due to this, the situation of law and order was broken. A heavy police presence was made. Thousands of servants from Nagpur, Gondia, Bhandara districts were present. Therefore, to prevent the situation from getting out of hand, the Superintendent of Police has now registered a case against the organizer and Dhirendra Shastri under section 295.

What did Bageshwar Baba say?

Nagpur and Bhandara area has a class following a special sect. They respect Hanumanji. However, Hanumanji is not worshiped. Bageshwar Baba said, “Don’t do Shraddha, don’t keep pictures of parents, don’t say Ram Ram, say Jai Gurudev… Hanuman who said Ram Ram all his life, his worshiper will not say Ram Ram. Eating rasgulla…but saying it is sugar. People who do this should open their ears and hear that your ancestors have gone to hell, your coming generation will also go to hell.” Bageshwar Baba made such a statement in Bhagwat Week and said Hanumanji is never fond of such devotion.

Tension after a controversial statement

During the discourse, Baba Bageshwar Maharaj mentioned that, “Someone told me that there are some devotees of Hanumanji in this tradition but they do not respect their parents, they do not respect Lord Shri Ram, they do not say Ram Ram. I have no animosity towards them. I salute their faith. But this much can be said that he cannot remain a Hanuman devotee unless he takes the name of Rama. Such a person cannot be a servant of Hanuman, it may be an anti-religious tradition. You may feel bad, you may make a ruckus for a time, but I will not fail to speak the truth, for I will not remain without mentioning Raghuvar’s name even on Babur’s chest.”

Bageshwar Baba’s program till 2nd April

Meanwhile, Bageshwar Dham Sarkar’s Divya Darbar has been organized at Chandu Baba Stadium from March 27 to April 2 at Mohadi in Bhandara district.
