Crisis of Faith The arrest of the self-proclaimed godman Asaram in 2013 should have brought some relief to the victims of his alleged sexual assaults. Asaram, who oversaw a devotional empire valued at many thousands of crores of rupees and commanded immense political influence, stands accused of rape in two cases—one in Jodhpur, and the other in Ahmedabad. But to the horror of his accusers, and of the witnesses who supported them, as the trials of the cases wore on, Asaram’s followers began to execute brutal, sometimes fatal, attacks on those who dared stand up to their guru. Priyanka Dubey chronicles the nightmarish struggle to bring Asaram to justice. Also in this issue: How Prabhakar Pachpute brought coal into Indian art galleries; the BJP’s appropriation of Kanshi Ram’s dream; the historical figure the BJP and BSP fought over during the UP election; taking stock after half a century of Dravidian rule in Tamil Nadu; Mamata Banerjee’s simmering confrontation with the BJP; and much more.
