Asaram named as 'great saint' in Class III textbooks

Asaram Bapu, who is currently in jail for allegedly being involved in a rape case, has been termed as 'great saint' in the text books of class III students in Jodhpur schools. The book has been published by a Delhi-based publication.

Asaram is mentioned in the list of great saints on page 40 of the book Naya Ujala. The list includes personalities like Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa and Ramakrishna Paramhansa among others.

The Jodhpur education department said they don't have any knowledge of the book. Therefore, there is no question of taking any action.
