IT refers to the Swamiji as godman Swami Aseemanand.
The extreme impulse to smear Swamiji Aseemanand by any means necessary, even after he was acquitted, can be quite easily explained.
In the late 1990s, Swamiji Aseemanand did fantastic Ghar-Wapsi work among the Tribals of the Dangs in Gujarat, who had been fraudulently converted to Christianity en masse by huge and well-funded missionary efforts. Swamiji brought back about 40,000 converts from the Dangs into the Hindu fold.
This caused major heartburn amongst US- and other Western-based Soul Harvesting Agencies, and Sonia Gandhi was specially deputed to take matters into her own hands.
It took her some time to do this, but by around 2007 you could see Sonia Gandhi's thugs viciously pursuing Ghar Wapsi spiritual leaders to appease her foreign masters. Swamiji Aseemanand was framed for the Samjhauta Express Blasts. In Orissa, Swamiji Laxmananand (another Ghar Wapsi exponent) was murdered by mercenaries nominally associated with a Maoist group, but in the pay of Christian missionary organizations.
Then came 26/11, which again, had it not been for Tukaram Ombale's bravery, would have been twisted to fit the "Hindu Terrorism" narrative.
If today there are STILL snide attempts to stain Swamiji Aseemanand as "godman", "radical right" etc... you can immediately conclude who they are coming from. The names of the "journalists" writing these smear campaigns are invariably concealed behind a byline of "India Today Newsdesk Staff" but you can bet anything that they subscribe to a certain Religion of Love.
In fact, it has been proposed that the entire multi-year USCIRF defamation operation against Modi (visa denial, etc.) occurred EXACTLY because they saw the danger a non-Congress, pro-Hindu government posed to their entire well-funded project of massive conversions to Christianity in Gujarat. The USCIRF was stacked with Evangelical Christians like Nina Shea, and backed to the hilt by the Evangelical-friendly George W. Bush government. You think they cared about Muslims dying after Godhra? These were just pawns and pretexts.
