Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad has come out with a “list of fake babas”, which includes Asaram, Radhe Maa, Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Narayan Sai, Nirmal Baba and Om Baba.
In the list of 14, the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad has asked the government to amend new laws against the “fake gurus”.
Following are the names:
Asaram bapu
Sukhvinder Kaur aka Radhe Maa
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh
Om baba aka Vivekanand
Nirmal Baba
Ichachadhari Vishwanand
Swami Asimanand
Om Namah Shivaay
Narayan Sai

During its Sunday meeting, the Parishad reviewed findings by a team of sadhus it had formed in July to identify “fake” religious heads from across the country and get them to refrain from using the religious title to draw followers.
Mahant Narendra Giri, president of the Parishad, had earlier told The Indian Express that all those self-proclaimed shankaracharyas, other than four “genuine” ones, will face action.
“None of these fake shankaracharyas will be allowed to attend the religious gatherings at the upcoming Magh Mela and the Ardh Kumbh in 2019. We are strictly dealing with the menace. Over the past two decades, these farzi heads have come up, misleading people into believing they are the genuine monastic heads. But everyone must be told there are only four original peeths,” he said.
