Huge Monetary Loss to Multi National Companies
Bapuji has devoted at least 50 years of his life to the spiritual awakening of the people. He has made a huge following of 60 million devotees in 50 years, creating an ecosystem of spiritual growth with permanent transition to a dharmic lifestyle. De-addiction of all his followers causes huge monetary losses to many multinational companies.
Numbers Don’t Lie
If we reduce the figure of Pujya Bapuji followers from 60 million to 20 million, lest people should consider it to be an exaggeration. Let's suppose, if 20 million people don't consume alcohol for 50 years that goes to save about 18820 billion rupees.
If we calculate the savings in terms of consumption of cigarettes the amount comes to 11360 billion rupees.
Similarly, even the amount saved in Gutkha-consumption, Tea & Cold Drinks, Eggs & Meat can easily be calculated. The strong message of Celibacy (Brahmacharya) causes a great loss to the Sex Industrial Complex (the producers and distributors of pornography, lewd music albums, manufacturers of condoms, drugs for AIDS, etc.)
If we calculate the combined total of all these, the amount runs into a few hundred trillion of rupees to say the least.
So, it's no big deal if those companies incurring losses to the tune of trillions, decide to spend a few billions to defame Bapuji!
