    This article is so loaded with half-truths and innuendos it is almost a lie. For example, while it's true he was jailed in 1971, charged with murder, why does your writer not take this fact to completion and note that he was released in 1978, having been found innocent?

    Next you talk about the enormous wealth of Ananda Marga. Where is this? It does not exist, as Anandamurti always emphasised that money of the organisation should be used for social service.

    And while the Raja of Garh did donate land (in a very remote, poor area) to Ananda Marga, he never became a member of the Marga. He donated the land as he felt Ananda Marga could use it for spiritual and social service.

    Lastly, to confirm the extreme negative bias of this article, the beginning, RE the rape conviction of Ram Rahim: why do you taint this article about Anandamurti with the scent of rape (a most heinous crime)? There is no relation between the two.

    This article is a very poor show for this newspaper.

    Sincerely,
