Paramhans Das, disciple of Mahant Sarveshwar Das, head of Tapasvi Ki Chhavni, has been expelled from the organisation for allegedly making objectionable comments against Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas chief Mahant Nritya Gopal Das.
Das, whose original name was Uday Narain Das, was a self-proclaimed mahant and ‘jagatguru’ and had never discharged his duties as a saint. Mahant Sarveshwar Das also urged fellow saints to not give refuge to Paramhans Das in their circle.

As per reports, in a television debate, Paramhans Das had made objectionable remarks against Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas chief Mahant Nritya Gopal Das. “He is like our guru. How can one say such things about one’s guru?” Mahant Sarveshwar Das reportedly said. Following his remarks, disciples and supporters of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das had gathered outside his ashram. Paramhans Das was then escorted outside his ashram by administration.
Next day, Paramhans Das reportedly accused Mahant Nritya Gopal Das of conspiring to murder him. Following this, he was expelled from Tapasvi Ki Chhavni. Paramhans Das has reportedly fled Ayodhya and not returned since.
