Was Sambhaji Bhide a consultant to NASA & Pentagon? | What is the truth?


Is it possible to believe that the person who is with the Prime Minister is not an ordinary man who walks barefoot with a hat on his head? .? Sounds like an ordinary man. Let’s find out about him ..! Sambaji Rao Bhide won the gold medal in Atomic Physics. Professor at Fergusson College, Pune. So far he has received more than 100 national and international awards. He has researched nuclear science and has guided more than 67 people. He has served as an adviser to the US government at NASA and the Pentagon.



Over the past few days, I have been able to see the name “Sambhaji Bhide” spreading on Tamil social media sites. Sambhaji Bhide is a simple-looking man without even sandals on his feet next to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He has been a consultant to NASA and the Pentagon. We decided to explore to find out the truth of these.

All the information spread in Tamil about Sambhaji Bhide’s educational qualification and the work he has done has already been spread in English and Hindi in the last year itself.

Sambhaji, 86, hails from Sangli district of Maharashtra and belongs to the Shree Shiv Pratishthan Hindu organization in the state. Sambhaji, the son-in-law of Babarao Bait, a leading activist of the RSS, was also a full-time RSS activist. Later in the dispute there, as like the RSS, he formed an organization called Shree Shiv Pratishthan Hindustan in 1984 in Sangli district. The main purpose of this organization is to highlight Shivaji and his son Sambhaji.

The BBC Hindi section had published an article on the information released in Hindi in 2019. In it, Nitin Chougle, a spokesman for the Shiv Pratishthan a Sambhaji Bhide organization, said that the Sambhaji Bhide had won a gold medal in nuclear physics and worked as a professor at Fergusson College in Pune. Similarly, Bait has been doing community service in Maharashtra and has more than 10 lakh volunteers. But, other information was denied.

It is also rumoured that he has won more than 100 national and international awards, has served as an adviser to the US government at NASA and the Pentagon, and has conducted research in nuclear science and guided more than 67 people.

On January 6, 2018, the Times of India reported that the gold medalist in physics wanted to create a golden throne for Shivaji. It states that Bhide received a gold medal in MSc and a doctorate in physics and dropped out of professorship at Fergusson College. But there is no information on how long he worked there. Similarly, it is not referred to as nuclear physics.

Kiran Shaligram, a member of the organization that runs Fergusson College, said that “Bhide was a professor of physics at College, but it is not known how long he was a professor there,” the Times of India reported.

When we searched the website of Fergusson College, Pune, we were able to find that there are no nuclear science courses in the college.

An official of the college told the BBC Hindi that there were no documents or records to prove that Sambhaji Bhide was a student or professor at Fergusson College from Fergusson College’s information.

According to various reports, Sambhaji Bhide won a gold medal in nuclear physics and worked as a professor at Fergusson College. Narendra Modi met Sambhaji Bhide at Raigad Fort to campaign for the 2014 parliamentary elections. Sambhaji Bhide was hailed as Guruji on the election campaign platform. Narendra Modi and Uttav Thackeray have come forward to seek the support and congratulations of Sambhaji Bait during the 2014 elections. His support is needed by state political leaders.

A case was registered on January 1, 2018, at the Pimpri Police Station against Sambhaji, the founder of Shree Shiv Pratishthan Hindustan, and Milind Ekbote, a Hindu Ekta Agadi, in connection with the violence in Bhima Koregaon. However, he was later acquitted and a further trial was held.

At a rally in June 2018, Sambhaji Bait claimed that the couple would have a male child and also would cure infertility if they eat mangoes from his farm. A case was filed against him for this claim. Then he was granted bail in December 2018.


In our search, we came to know that Sambhaji Bhide, who is close to Narendra Modi, has won more than 100 awards, acted as a consultant to NASA and the Pentagon and conducted nuclear science research and guided more than 67, is completely false and rumoured

Our endeavour could not confirm the veracity of the claims that Sambhaji Bait was a gold medalist in nuclear physics and was a professor at Fergusson College. Several additional details were obtained, including the cases filed against him which were dropped later.
