How to deal with rising menace of self-styled god-mens and gurus

Becoming a guru is a growing trend these days as it is the easiest way to make quick money. Self-styled god-men have amassed billions of wealth by building dozens of ashrams across the world.

Seducing and raping woman, who comes to them for the solution of materialistic problems in their lavishly built homes and ashrams, is their way of honoring the generosity of devotees who have donate their hard earned money for their luxurious living. Now days, most of the god-mens are no less than hypocrites who don’t have an iota of spirituality in them.
