Do you think spiritual leaders involved in crimes get away easily due to political patronage?

Unfortunately, in India it happens like this only. Here politicians are only worried about their vote bank. Our spiritual leaders have a great following and so all political parties try to woo them. In the Asaram case, the Rajasthan Govt. is going soft because elections are nearing in the state.

In the context of eastern religions, spirituality is not a social thing. Spiritual journey has to be taken individually. There is no crowd or a leader to lead them. So in india we only had GURUs and Disciples. Guru doesnt lead but only guide each devotee in devotees path. So the phrase "spiritual leader" is a misnomer. Those people are really not spiritual but political, seeking power, fame and money thru people.
So i say those spiritual leaders are really politicians.....and those political patronages are simply political alliances!
