The self-styled godman can be seen descending from the sky as Lord Vishnu, a gimmick that left federation activists fuming. While cops are yet to register an FIR in Zirakpur, student leaders have threatened to move the court if action is not taken against Gurmeet Ram Rahim.
“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,” Nishant Sharma, president of the All India Hindu Student Federation, told Mail Today.
Police officials, however, confirmed having received a complaint but refused to come on camera. Sources say the government may not be keen to take action against the baba due to the upcoming elections in the state as the self-styled godman has a strong support base in Doaba region of Punjab.
Reportedly, cops are hesitating to register a case against Dera Sachcha Sauda chief. However, police said that they have launched an investigation after registering a complaint. Earlier also, Gurmeet Ram Rahim had been in dock for dressing up as Guru Govind Singh and a complaint was lodged against him for hurting Sikh sentiments.
