By 26th August 2017 0 Comments

Ram Rahim , held guilty of raping two women followers by a court in Haryana’s Panchkula today, found strong support in BJP lawmaker Sakshi Maharaj, who said the chief of the Dera Sirsa is being “harassed.” 30 people have died and 250 are injured in violence that erupted after the court’s verdict, in Panchkula and in Sirsa, where the Dera is headquartered.

“One person has complained of rape against Ram Rahim. Crores others believe he is God. Who do you think is right?” Sakshi Maharaj said, alleging a “conspiracy to defame not only Ram Rahim and other saints, but also Indian culture.”
The BJP member of parliament has also warned that “if even bigger incidents take place, court will also be responsible not just Dera people,” saying, “There is so much of ruckus over it, law and order has been disturbed, people are dying…Shouldn’t this be a consideration?” Ram Rahim, he said, “is a simple man so he is being harassed.”
