Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim had been enjoying the spotlight for quite some time when his followers got Kiku Sharda arrested and things got trending but then Karma came running to BITE!
Follower Uday Singh‘s sentiments were hurt when comedian Kiku Sharda impersonated Gurmeet Ram Rahim in a show Jashn-e-Umeed organised by Zee TV. Kiku was booked for 14 days of judicial custody.
However, things have taken a U turn and quite literally. All India Hindu Student Federation have filed a complaint to Mohali Police, accusing the Dera chief to have hurt their sentiments by dressing up as Lord Vishnu.
Lots of sentiments getting hurt but here’s what happened.
Nishant Sharma, President of the All India Hindu Student Federation said to Mail Today,
“We will not tolerate Gurmeet Ram Rahim insulting our gods and gurus. He first insulted Guru Gobind Singh ji and is now seen as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu in one of the videos. What is this? He got TV actor Kiku Sharda arrested just for mimicking him after which the police arrested the actor immediately. We gave a complaint to the Zirakpur police station, which is hesitating to register a case against him. We will move the court if the case is not registered immediately.”
It is alleged that the police are reluctant to take any actions against Gurmeet Ram as he holds a strong ground at Doaba in Punjab which may prove beneficial in the upcoming elections.
This is not the first time the self-proclaimed godman is in trouble. He has also been alleged to have dressed as Guru Gobind Singh. According to Jaspal Singh Majhpur, on May 11, 2007, Gurmeet Ram Rahim had organised a gathering of his followers in Salabatpura. There he had dressed up like Guru Gobind Singh.
But somehow the guy gets away from all accussations and has been never booked or arrested. Is it because he has power and a huge number of followers? Are these followers being treated as VOTE BANKS?
Kiku Sharda was arrested within a matter of hours but the opposite seems to take a lot of time. Hmmm… Strange!
Let us know what you feel about this dual behaviour of police and our judicial system.
