As per a recent report published in a Gujarati daily, Raju Chandak (alias Raju Lambu) was allegedly shot at by two people. The daily further states that three bullets had hit him and after being shot he rode his motor bike back to his residence with those injuries. The Gujarati daily further reports that Chandak was wearing a thick jacket and three bullets didn't harm any of his vital body parts. He was apparently taken to the hospital and was discharged as there were no serious injuries. The police confirmed that he was safe during his statement to a local news channel. Raju Lambu has alleged that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu had arranged this to kill him.
Let us analyze the facts.
Who is Raju Chandak and why was he expelled from Ashram?
Raju Chandak, an erstwhile inmate of the Ashram, was expelled from the Ashram after about 20 years in 2005 for his waywardness and indecent conduct. Since then he had harbored feelings of vengeance and acrimony towards Sant Asaramji Bapu and the Ashram. He was the kingpin of ‘anti - Asaramji’ campaign and had roped in other people who had been earlier expelled from the Ashram for similar conduct. The main cronies who supported Lambu were Amrit Prajapati and Mahendra Chawla. They had jointly planned and implemented the Gurukul episode. Thereafter, Lambu started using forms of media like television channels and newspapers for leveling various false and concocted allegations to tarnish the public image of Bapuji. Raju Lambu divulged startling revelations of all his nefarious activities fortuitously during a sting operation. This sting operation has completely exposed all despicable actions of Raju Lambu and his cronies. The manner in which he himself accepted his involvement in all the conspiracies establishes the fact that he has committed an abominable crime of defaming a great world-renowned saint. Raju Lambu who deviously used the media for this sacrilegious drive has also disparaged and ridiculed the media stating, “Whatever you give to the media, they will publish it as a scandal. They are like kids. Their sole intention is to increase TRP.” The complete video of this sting operation can also be viewed at http://www.ashram.org/truth

CONSPIRACY of RAJU CHANDAK (aka RAJU LAMBU)
Is this a well schemed conspiracy to malign Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu and his ashrams?
Since the last few months, the pious Sant Asaramji Ashram has been mired in controversies. Be it the defamatory articles by a local Gujarati daily, vindictive attack on the Ahmedabad Ashram or the actions of Raju Lambu. The spate of events clearly indicates a sinister and well crafted conspiracy to tarnish the image of Sant Shri Asaramji and his Ashrams. The disconcerting part is that even Gujarat Police, seems to be a party to this entire strategy. The dreadful attack on the Ashram on November 27 2009 clearly indicates this alliance. Several questions are arising. This also reminds us of a similar case against Shankracharya Sri Jayendra Saraswathi back in 2004, where local government and police had falsely implicated him in the case.
Answers are sought to these questions
Was Raju Chandak really shot or is this a fake shootout? After getting injured by 3 bullets, can a person ride a motorbike? Moreover, he claims that the bullets did not harm is vital organs as he was wearing a thick jacket. Which jacket was Raju wearing? No "thick" jacket can stop bullets unless it is a bullet proof one. If the intention was to murder Raju Chandak, he should be hit on his head or chest and not on his hand and body ? So it would imply that there was no intention to kill Raju Chandak but to creat a situation where Pujya Bapuji is framed.
-Why would Bapuji arrange for Raju Lambu to get killed when already the media is portraying Bapuji and the Ashrams in wrong light?
-Who has masterminded this malicious campaign to disparage Bapuji and His ashrams? Why is a section of media prejudiced against Bapuji and His Ashrams? Why are they manipulating and suppressing the facts? Why are they not affording coverage to the sting operation that busted Raju Lambu’s and several others’ misdeeds? Who is funding them?
- Why did he not raise all these issues when we was expelled in 2005 when he had all the connections to take possible action against Pujya Bapuji
-Why is Police not releasing copy of FIR filed by Raju Lambu to the Ashram lawyers?
- Why were the disciples and the Ashram ruthlessly attacked by the Gujarat Police? Who has given Gujarat Police the authority to destroy property and harm persons? Brutality of Police
-Why are the Human Rights authorities silent despite such abysmal violation by the police?
