Murugha Math Sleaze: Chief pontiff Shivamurthy, warden Rashmi booked under POCSO

Why do they become religious leader if they cannot control their carnal desires which is predominately important to walk away from the worldly pleasures – In Indian tradition it is called – These five thieves are kaam (lust), krodh (wrath), lobh (greed), moh (attachment) and ahankar (ego or excessive pride). Why I am writing this? No, its not a sermon or religious discourse but trying to understand why suddenly Godmen at large in India have become sex hungry. These filthy predators have even ruined the lives of innocent disciples who stay as inmates in these ashrams. Well, ashram for name sake, lavish and palatial bungalows or farmhouses.

The recent controversy is about Karnataks’s Murugha Math’s chief pontiff Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru was arrested for alleged sexual abuse of high school girls. The pontiff was sent to judicial custody for 14-days. On Friday, a day after Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru’s arrest, his aide and Mutt warden, Rashmi was arrested in connection with a sexual assault case against chief pontiff Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru.

Rashmi is the same person who earlier filed a counter FIR against SK Basavarajan and his wife for illegal detention and kidnapping of the children. A case has been registered under Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against junior pontiff Basavadithya, Paramashivaiah, and Gangadharaiah apart from Shivamurthy and Rashmi.
