Asumal Sirumalani known as Asaram Bapu by his followers, is a Hindu religious leader from India born on 17 April 1941. In the early 1970s, Asaram’s followers built an ashram for him on 4 ha (10 acres) of land in Gujarat. By 2013, he had 400 major and minor ashrams in India and abroad, with numerous followers. In the 2000s, several cases of land encroachment were lodged against his ashrams in multiple states. In 2008, the death of two boys at his Motera ashram led to public protests, amid allegations that black magic was being practiced at the ashram. In 2013, Asaram was arrested when a 16-year-old girl accused him of sexually assaulting her in Jodhpur.
