Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh – The Messenger of Hypocrisy in India | Dera Sacha Sauda
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, known to be a spiritual leader and the Chief of the Dera Sacha Sauda – a non-profit social welfare and spiritual organization, has been in the news lately. Well, not for his social works but for him being guilty of rape as declared by a special CBI court on 25th August 2017. The quantum of sentence is to be announced on 20th August 2017. Though Indian judicial system does not have many fans following due to its delay in declaring the verdicts, better late than never!
THE RAPE CASE HISTORY:
It was back in 2002 that Ram Rahim had been accused of sexually abusing two of his female followers, one of whom wrote an anonymous letter to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister of India about the abuse and the probable risks of other female followers in the organization. On this basis, a CBI probe was initiated against the Dera Chief. One of the victims stated that he justified his deed by saying it would purify her. The trial commenced on 2008 and on 6th September 2008 the IPC Sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) was charged on him. Ram Rahim has been taken into custody by the Haryana police.
OTHER CASES AGAINST HIM:
Strangely, in the same year (2002), Ranjit Singh – the manager of the organization and Ram Chander Chhatrapati – a journalist and editor of ‘Poora Sach’ who wrote articles about the illegal activities going on in the organization both were murdered. Eventually, murder charges on Ram Rahim were levied as well.
And to the shock of everyone, this person has also been accused of forcible castration of as many as 400 of his followers. Though the Dera Chief dismissed the allegations, Hans Raj Chauhan – a follower claimed that Ram Rahim alleged that by this process they would come closer to God. However, the findings lead to some castrated followers who stated that the process was undertaken with their consent and no one was being forced.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has more than 6 crores of followers which apparently shows his power in the country and political influences as well. The self-proclaimed god-man has several political connections. He gave his blessings to the political parties from time to time. Now the question is, isn’t it quite natural for political parties not to interfere in the unsocial, rather hypocrite acts of such a person whose support can have a huge impact during the elections?
AFTERMATH OF VERDICT:
The Dera Sacha Sauda called the verdict to be unjust their Chief being innocent according to them. As an aftermath of the verdict, lacks of his followers started protesting and spreading violence in parts of Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi. Curfew has been imposed in several places. At least 32 people lost their lives and more than 350 got injured in the vandalism. Railway stations, buildings and a number of vehicles in Panchkula and Sirsa have been torched as a sign of protest. In Anand Vihar, Delhi two empty coaches of a train (the Rewa Express) were set on fire. Tear gas shells were fired to stop the hooligans. Section 144 (prohibits the assembly of four or more people) has been imposed in 11 districts of Delhi.http://www.khbuzz.com/2017/08/26/gurmeet-ram-rahim-singh-messenger-hypocrisy-india/http://www.khbuzz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Gurmeet-Ram-Rahim-Singh.jpghttp://www.khbuzz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Gurmeet-Ram-Rahim-Singh-150x150.jpgIndiaNewsDera Sacha Sauda,Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh,Rockstar Baba
