Dirty Picture Of Ram Rahim

By 7th September 2017 0 Comments

Dera Sirsa Ram Rahim led a colourful life inside the sect’s headquarters in Haryana’s Sirsa. Currently serving 20-year jail sentence in the 2002 rape case, Singh lived like a king on the sprawling 700-acre campus.
Every building is decorated with hoardings carrying pictures of its chief Ram Rahim, who took over as its chief in 1990. The flamboyant self-styled spiritual leader — dubbed the “Guru in bling” due to his fondness for glittering costumes and state-of-the-art motorcycles — is now in jail.

Set up in 1948, the Dera Sirsa — which describes itself as a social welfare and spiritual organization — claims to have 50 million followers in India and abroad. The numbers had brought it favour of political parties across the board.
The campus is dominated by the pink mansion, dubbed the “gufa”, meaning a cave, where Ram Rahim lived with his family. This is also the place where women were sexually exploited by Ram Rahim, one of the rape survivors had written in a detailed letter to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
