Dera Sacha Sauda chief has links with Maoists, alleges VHP

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has accused Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Raheem Singh of having links with Maoists.

New Delhi, May 20 : The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has accused Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Raheem Singh of having links with Maoists.

"Dera is involved in many anti-religious and anti social activities. Dera's chief has links with Maoists," VHP president Ashok Singhal said, adding that Dera was infusing hatred between Sikh and Hindu communities.

"Hindu and Sikhs must beware of Dera's plot to infuse hatred between them," VHP president said in a release.

Meanwhile, the Punjab Police today registered a case in Bhatinda against Dera Sacha Sauda Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, just before the meeting of Akal Takht in Amritsar.

"The State Government has clamped a case under Section 295 (a), deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs, of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the Dera Sacha Sauda chief," Harcharan Singh Bains, media advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal said.

Gurmeet Ram Raheem Singh has reportedly apologised to the Sikh community for hurting their sentiments.

"I had no intention of imitating or being disrespectful to Guru Gobind Singh. I had absolutely no intention of equating myself with Guru Gobind Singh," Ram Rahim said.

"We never intended to imitate Guru Gobind Singh and we are regretful of whole chain of event," the Public Relations Department of the Dera said in a statement issued last night.

The clashes began on Monday after the controversial leader of Dera Sacha Sauda sect, which combines social work with spirituality, dressed up as Guru Gobind Singh, the revered 17th century Sikh guru.
