Comment, ‘Birds of a feather flock together’

CHANDIGARH: Age seems to be catching up with Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, once known as “Rockstar Baba” and “Guru of Bling” for his embellished clothes. His beard has gone grey and his face “looked pale” as he appeared via video conferencing before a special CBI court on Friday, son of killed journalist Ram Chander Chhatarpati, Anshul Chhatarpati, said.
Ram Chander was killed in Haryana’s Sirsa in 2002 after his newspaper published an anonymous letter alleging sexual exploitation of women by the self-styled godman. The court convicted Singh and three others for the journalist’s murder.

The 51-year-old sect head was named as the main conspirator in the case. Anshul said while his family got emotional on hearing the court’s verdict, Singh appeared shocked. Already serving a 20-year sentence for raping two of his followers, the self-styled godman is
staring at a life term or capital punishment after he was found guilty of murder and criminal conspiracy.

The quantum of punishment will be announced by the court on January 17. Before being convicted in the rape case in August 2017, Singh was known for his lavish lifestyle, a penchant for modified motorbikes, his music videos and scripting, directing and starring in his films. The burly, bearded man was also known for his love for sports and apparently holds dozens of records, including those for the world’s largest vegetable mosaic and largest finger painting.

Singh’s Twitter account, now suspended, described him as “Spiritual saint/Philanthropist/Versatile singer/All-rounder sportsperson/Film director/Actor/Art director/Music director/Writer/Lyricist/Autobiographer/DOP”.

He is also facing trial for allegedly forcing 400 of his followers to undergo castration in a bid to “get closer to god”, besides allegedly murdering former Dera manager Ranjit Singh in 2002.

The ultimate travesty of Indian spirituality?

Posted by robertpriddy on March 9, 2015

Recently the Indian government filed charges against ‘the guru of bling’  –  Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh – in connection with the alleged forced castration of 400 of his followers. Allegedly many of his male devotees were told that this ultimate scrotal sacrifice was a necessary step before they could ever get ‘realization of God’. The guru denies the charges, inviting authorities to ‘behead him’ if the claims were proved true.

insanThe UK newspaper The Independent summarised this latest scandal in the world of Indian guru cults:-

“Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, an Indian pop-star and telepreacher with a reported wealth of more than $50 million, is being investigated after he allegedly manipulated around 400 men to get their testicles removed – according to India Today.

Singh – who has more than 87,000 Twitter followers but is not a follower of anyone – describes himself on a social media bio as a “spiritual Saint/philanthropist/versatile singer/allrounder sportsperson/film director/art director/music director/script writer/lyricist/autobiographer/DOP”.

One of his former followers who underwent castration seven years ago – named Hans Raj Chauhan – is one of the few to break the silence to speak out against him and the group. The Central Bureau of Investigation has started looking into claims dating back as far back as 2000 in preparation of charges of grievous bodily harm. However many followers are believed to be in fear of speaking out. The alleged castrations were said to be mainly carried out at a hospital run by the DSS in Singh’s ancestral village Gurusar Modia, in the Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan. 

The DSS also owns factories, markets, farms, restaurants, hotels and runs schools and orphanages, according to Latterly Magazine.”
