Self-proclaimed godman Bageshwar Dham Sarkar has been making headlines with his advocacy of superstition and his “miraculous” powers in Sanatan Dharma. He was recently challenged by a Maharashtra-based organization to show evidence of his powers at an event in Nagpur, after which he became a viral topic of discussion on social media.

According to several reports, he initially refused the challenge but later demanded the organization to visit him in Raipur. Bageshwar Dham Sarkar has also been accused of religious conversion, however, he himself proclaims he is against it.

Defending his stance on conversion to Hinduism, he said some people are creating a nuisance and have to be taught a lesson. “We are making Hindus to return to the religion they acquired at birth. As long as I am alive, I will make all Sanatani Hindus return to their original faith,” news agency ANI quoted him as saying.
