Probe the godmen

The income tax department has discovered black money amounting to Rs 2300 crore in godman Asaram Bapu's  palaces.  The godman's followers have a lot of shady deals carried out in the name of religion and charity.

The government should investigate all the religious trusts and organisations.  Most of them, if not all, will be found to be serious financial offenders.

On the other hand, the people of India should ask themselves how long they will allow themselves to be defrauded by such satanic godmen and ammas. One simple truth is that there are thousands of people who are accomplices of the sanctimonious frauds merely because religion has become the easiest way to make illegal wealth in India.  It is very easy to get away with it too.

If the Modi government is serious about bringing achche din to the country, it should start with cleaning up the most pernicious places: the religious trusts.
