Will India Ever Have a “Me-Too” Movement? Or Will Sexually Abused Girls and Women Just Have to Continue to Suffer in Silence?


12 years old was Kripalu Maharaji's preferred age to rape girls. (Photo shared for educational purposes.)

My experience with child sex abuse in India is that Indian girls and women tend not to speak out. The main reason I have been told is shame, not only for themselves but also for their families. If a female is shamed in India, it’s highly likely that she will be blamed and no one will marry her.


This is a very sad state of affairs. I wish that India could have a me-too movement like the U.S. did over the past several years. 


However, it’s also not easy in the U.S. for many women and girls to speak out. They are often not believed and called liars, or they are slut shamed making them out to be the ones who causes the sex abuse, or they are called crazy and therefore undependable.


But when women in the U.S. launched a me-too movement, it gave a lot of women more confidence to speak out — and that helped expose many sex abusers and rapists. 


This is not to say that all the women and girls in the U.S. speak out about their abuse. The photo above is of a little girl in the U.S. and her grandmother. The grandmother put her in the position of being sexually abused by Kripalu Maharaji at about 12 years old when he came with his entourage to the U.S. in 2004/2007. During his 2007 trip, the girl was his favorite person in the whole ashram for the duration of his stay.


The Three Greedy Didis stayed in close contact with her throughout the years. Perhaps it was to help keep her quiet about what happened to her, but also to lure her into the organization when she reached 18 years old. However, that girl's life took a different turn. She got a higher education and got married.


Yet, she has never spoken out about her abuse in JKP. If I had to guess I would say it’s also because she is trying to protect her grandmother. Also her mother, who got on the witness stand at the criminal trial for child sex abuse case of Swami Prakashanand Saraswati. She gave a testimony to try and help the guru get off of his crimes. However, she was a useless witness, like all of his so-called witnesses were. For one thing, they all lied by omission or commission.


Regarding the girl, another reason she may not be speaking out about her abuse by Kripalu is based on something I recently was told by a reliable insider. Allegedly, this girl not only had sexual relations with Kripalu, but also with one of his three main grandsons. Apparently, she had a huge crush on the boy, who would have been in his late 20s or early 30s at the time. 


What’s more, allegedly someone took photos of the encounter. If this abuse happened, and if there are photos, is she being threatened? Is she being told that the photos will become public if she ever dares to speak out — or it's perhaps implied? I do not know the answers. But I do know if this girl ever got the nerve to do the right thing and tell about her experiences in this organization, she might be able to expose the whole sham.


However, I wish that more Indian girl victims of Kripalu would speak out. I wish they could gather their inner warrior to tell what really happened to them behind closed doors. I understand why they don’t. But I wish they could rise above the cultural imperative to protect male sex abusers and tell the truth.


They could even do it anonymously. This is something that occurred recently in the U.S. Five females from a cult were sexually abused. All five spoke out anonymously. As a result, the sex abuser was tried and convicted. 


Yes, I know that Kripalu Maharaji is dead now. But his legacy lives on — the organization is fooling people, including young people, into thinking it's a pure spiritual organization, when it’s anything but that. It was and is an abusive organization that ruins people's lives. You will never get spiritual enlightenment in JKP — it's a world of darkness. You'll ruin another one of your lives on earth.


Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat has benefited for too long from the fact that the abused girls and women will not speak out. Isn't it time?

Update on My Book — "Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus" (The Book JKP Does NOT Want You to Read)

I receive many messages from people asking questions about Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat — but I have already addressed most of their questions in my book: Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus.


Please, if you really want to know the truth about this organization and its founder, Kripalu Maharaji, read the book. The blog posts on this website are also revealing. But my book has the whole story — from A to Z — including many of the secrets of Kripalu’s 60-year sex cult posing as a “spiritual organization.”


You can purchase the book on Amazon:

Also, I have an exciting update on my book, which I’m happy to share. In 2023, my book was optioned by a very prestigious multi-media production company (optioned means they are considering turning the book into a movie or show).


This production company already has movies, documentaries, and television shows on many streaming platforms, like Netflix. They are now considering how to tell a story about the dark side of JKP.


If they do produce a story based on my book, it will be a great opportunity to educate more people about the truth of this organization and help them steer clear — for the well being of themselves and their family members.


You can be sure this will NOT be good news to JKP. After all, they spent millions to try to silence my book. The organization quite literally tried to bomb, bury, and ban my book.


JKP’s first attempt was a cyber-bomb


JKP hired a dark-web cyber-criminal and paid him over a million US dollars to cyber-bomb my blog with a DDoS attack. An insider shared the whole story with me. They made the plan in the guru’s bedroom. Gathered the money. And instructed a devotee to pay the cyber-criminal to bomb my blog. 


They all cheered when it happened — including Kripalu Maharaji, Prakashanand Saraswati, and all the corrupt devotees with them. However, what they didn’t count on was that I would just move my blog — to Blogger, which is owned by Google. I doubt they will try and cyber-bomb Google!


JKP’s second attempt was to bury my book


The next step JKP took to silence my book, was to hire a law firm to write a letter to Amazon to tell them to remove my book from their website.


Amazon wrote back and said: “Take up your issue with the author” and Amazon copied me on the email. So I saw JKP’s whole scheme with my own two eyes. Of course, my book is still on Amazon.

JKP’s third attempt was to ban my book


Finally, JKP has banned all devotees from reading my book. In this way, they are a lot like American Republicans, who are attempting to ban books that tell people the truth on a wide range of topics.

What Doesn't JKP Want You to Know?

If you want to know the secrets about JKP, you should consider reading the book that JKP tried to bomb, bury, and ban — Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus


Discover exactly what they don’t want you to know!!


Happy New Year in 2024!!


P.S. As part of my long and difficult journey of healing from a wicked cult, I have changed my name to Aya Ray — meaning ray of light. I like to think of it as my freedom name. (Rishika was my nickname that I chose just after escaping the JKP cult.)
