Jailed Godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Is Convicted Of Murder! Will His Bhakts Be Able To Digest It?

5:09 pm 11 Jan, 2019


Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is presently serving a sentence of 20 years in jail on the charges of raping two of his female devotees. It is not so easy to forget the violence that took place in August 2017 when he was arrested following his conviction. It also claimed more than 40 lives. Naturally, the police in Panchkula are on their toes to make sure the history doesn’t repeat itself.

The tension was building up as the special CBI Court was all set to announce its verdict on the 2002 Chhatrapati murder case. The court finally convicted the self-styled Godman along with three others on January 11, 2019. However, the sentence will be declared on January 17, 2019.




For the uninitiated, Journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati wrote extensively on the growth of the Dera using illegal means. He died while battling for his life after being shot. He published an anonymous letter on his newspaper with the title ‘Poora Sach’. It narrated how women are sexually exploited in the headquarters of the Dera. Soon after this, the journalist was murdered.



Since morning, the devoted followers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh are making their attempt to project a positive image of this self-proclaimed guru on social media. Wondering how? Take a look at some of the tweets:







Yes, they are trying to establish the fact that Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is a man with a golden heart. Not only the poor but he has always paid special attention to the upliftment of women. Considering the charges for which he is serving jail time, that is certainly ironical.

Though the followers always vouch for his innocence, there are many shreds of evidence that suggest otherwise. Keeping the legal aspects aside, there is a fine book written by an investigative journalist named Anurag Tripathi. He gave an ‘A journalist’s account of investigating Gurmeet Ram Rahim and his empire of exploitation’ on his book named ‘Dera Sacha Sauda’. If you are interested, you can easily avail the books from e-commerce sites.



Though social media reactions are pouring in and it is pretty clear that the fanatical fans of Gurmeet Ram Rahim are not able to digest this new verdict. Read some of the reactions:






Thankfully, there are also those who were happy about this verdict. Check the reactions:






Anshul chattrapati, son of murdered journalist Ram Chandra Chattrapati also commented on this verdict:
