It's only in India; in the USA, he is unknown. Asaram Bapu was severely criticized by the media after his remark that the December 16, 2012 Delhi gang rape victim, was equally guilty along with those responsible for the sexual assault on her. He is reported to have said: "Only 5-6 people are not the culprits. The victim is as guilty as her rapists... She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop... This could have saved her dignity and life. Can one hand clap? I don't think so."
the american media? if the media here in the states are against Asaram Bapu it's news to me. i've never heard of this. i watch CNN every day and they usually touch on everything at least a little. i try to catch the BBC and Deutsche Welle also. nothing there either. so, what is this all about?
