ControversiesControversial Ultimatum by Mahant Raju Das to Swara Bhaskar: Marital Choices and Rakhi Sawant's Influence
In February 2023, Mahant Raju Das issued a warning to Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar regarding her marriage to a Muslim. During an interview, Raju Das expressed his belief that if Swara Bhaskar truly considered herself an empowered woman, she should not have chosen to marry in the first place. He went on to suggest that if Swara desired intimate relations with numerous partners, she should find contentment within her marriage. Raju Das further asserted that Swara Bhaskar's marriage within that particular community implied an association with their sisters. Ultimately, Swara Bhaskar received an ultimatum from Mahant Raju Das, who insinuated that she was following in the footsteps of Rakhi Sawant. [1]Hindustan Times

"But congratulations to her if she wants to spend nights with 1,000 men. Because she got married to a community where brothers and sisters get married and then do talaq, talaq, talaq. Swara Bhasker has openly chanted Insha Allah and Bharat tere tukde honge. She got married to a person whom she addressed as 'bhai' 10 days ago and asked him to get married soon."

"Maurya's mentality is bad, which is now being rectified'. Right now I have been beaten once, if I will be beaten a thousand times then everything will be fine. Whoever has opposed Ram and Ramcharitmanas, has been thrashed once and Hindus will thrash him a thousand times with shoes, stones, ink, bricks and sticks."
