The state dropped its case against Swami Jagadguru Ram Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction Maharaj who had been charged on May 18th with performing a grievous sexual assault on a 22 year old woman.
The matter, which was heard in the first court before Deputy Chief Magistrate, Mark Wellington this morning, was then dismissed. The Swami, who is said to have a large following of Ashrams in several countries including Europe, North America and India, came to Trinidad for a one month
Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction as part of a devotional tour. He was arrested on May 20th after a 22 year old Guyanese woman claimed that she was assaulted by the Swami in the prayer room of a house where the Swami stayed in Branch Road, Palmiste, San Fernando.

I am a Guyanese American who have been sujected to rape and molestation by 16 men from the age of 7. It was only recently when I was attacked that I had courage to speak up and it was simply because as litle girls were are told that our jobs are to Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction men.
Do you all "Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction" to her to know what type of person she is? The truth is he was arrested and spent time in jail which means there was enough evidence for him to be charged. And frankly I find this young woman to have the courage to speak up knowing that people would attack her reputation. Why would someone make accusations that could potentially put their life in danger. No one wants their character to be challenged.
Stop reading between the line and for once thank this girl from making other helpless people to fall into the trap of trusting people like this old fool. The woman will repent for making such allegations.
Dunno how much she was paid for defaming the Guruji. To the person who said that I am wrong to believe that people are generally uneducated — your ability to reason and comprehend would be further proof of that, had I actually said that. Please note, I never said one party nor the other was guilty. My problem is the level of devotion to a man, just like any one of
Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction, to such an extent as to ignore reason. When the woman fought back or threatened to expose the priest, the priest just had to say she was a witch and the mob like the dumb sheep there were would turn violent and ignore reason and torch the woman at the stake or throw her off a cliff.
The only difference here is there are laws to prevent you form doing such things now. Thanks, Guyanese American woman for the testimonial. If women do not believe in women, support women in their crises, and stand up for women, who will do it? Those women who walk blindly in the shadow of men, instead of proudly at their sides, are to be pitied; Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction gently encouraged to move forward.
Often, people I know from the subcontinent-Pakistan through Vietnam and Cambodia, still walk in America, behind their men.
When I heard of it, I encouraged her to go on the freeway, but stay in the second lane, the one next to the exit. After she did it for two weeks, I encouraged her to tell her husband. He was annoyed of course, but she had proved she could do it. I am waiting for the police to pick him up with that small child riding in the front seat.
One that I frequently meet in the grocery, allows his bent over old wife to push the heavy cart, while he walks, like Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction rajah inspecting his troops, one hand behind his back, at her side. It must be that having paid for the groceries, his job is done. For this he moved to the west! In the contexts of the above, women have been trained to accept domination by men.
Men from those cultures, seeing the same features in western women, like women in Guyana, TnT and both Britain and North America, may mistakenly believe that they are back in the lands of male domination, with women of their own kind who have cute western accents, and are freer.
More accessible, living outside the veil Was not a senior manager of a state enterprise, imported from India, charged by his subordinates more than one! Was not a woman in a small Indian town persecuted because she protested being raped by the town fathers to be taught a lesson? Covered in the New York Times I forgot in what town, and when a female police officer became active in prosecution of the case, she was transferred?
Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction are contexts in which women who are sexually assualted by men of power and priviledge, are expected to stay respectgfully silent. Woman,I salute your courage in joining the ranks of those who were there and are willing to speak out to help others.
The sad thing is, if you were still in the Caribbean area, Guyana included, all your neighbours would have been pointing fingers at you.
In the matter of the treatment of women, to quote one Guyanese woman I know, we are social pygmies. My early skepticism had to do with his age rather than the fact that he is a peddlar of religious psychotropic substances. I believe in and am tolerant of the need for people to have a spiritual foundation. However, I have absolutely no regard for anyone carrying a doctrine of humility and immateriality who is inundated with the trappings of wealth.
These people are guilty of larceny Prakash ramadhar wife sexual dysfunction dimwits. Someone said he was sent to Trinidad to help us all. I do not believe that I am under any moral imperative to look favourably on anyone wedded to these kinds of belief. So excuse me while I fart.
How many of u guys know, that the girl was found vergin after medical investigation.
U can get the details if u search properly on google. But fact is that no one is intersted in exposing this fact that the girl was found guilty. Now i think u guys will have to think once more for saying anything.
In case you all are brain dead please do some research into the Catholic Church about the rape and molestation of believers. Would you also then tell those victims that the made this story up? Shame on all of the negative things that is being said about this girl. Look at yourselves in the mirror before judging others.
Has any one met number 2, number3 … in heirarchy of this group sect. Anybody who can throw light on their character will give better impression of ideology of the group this swami heads. What was she found guilty of? Do you expect these snippets of inchoate factoids to ease pressure on the Swami. He appears to be a dirty old man. To people in the world still believing in truth and justice…. If you believe this swami is innocent and that makes you feel good about yourselves I feel sorry if anyone in your family was to ever be victimized.
My hope is that you never have to experience pain and misery like this…. This woman is a vitim of rape, not a murderer. I am sure there are more vitims like her who are ashame to come out and say happen to them in those fews days.
