The easiest way to earn fabulous wealth in India today is religion. There are quite a few godmen and ammas who have amassed more wealth than the Ambanis and Adanis by selling gods to people.
What happened in Mathura yesterday should open the eyes of both the people and the authorities. The followers of one Baba Jai Gurudev illegally occupied 280 acres and used violence when the police tried to evict them. The ‘religious’ people used swords, knives, guns, grenades and even automatic weapons.

a Baba and his Government
The Baba who died in 2012 (at the age of 116 as claimed by his followers) started off his divine career making the fraudulent claim that he was Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. That was in 1975 when people were not as willing as they apparently are today to be hoodwinked. The Baba’s fraud was greeted with a shower of slippers, rotten eggs and tomatoes. But Babas being some of the most ingenious people, they always find a way of defrauding the people. Soon Baba Jai Gurudev had land worth Rs4000 crore and cars worth Rs150 crore. He had palatial ashrams. According to an India Today report, “his followers make a donation of not less than Rs 12 lakh daily at his ashrams.”
Tell me, is there an easier way to make wealth?
I think the Indian government should encourage more and more people to become godmen and ammas. The economy of the country, which is already one of the leading economies in the world, will witness miraculous booms under the divine leadership of god’s men and women.
