A popular Indian guru and head of the Dera Sacha Sauda spiritual group has been accused of coaxing hundreds of men to castrate themselves in a promise for them to become closer to God.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who describes himself on Twitter as a “spiritual Saint/philanthropist/versatile singer/allrounder sportsperson/film director/art director/music director/script writer/lyricist/autobiographer/DOP” and has a reported wealth of more than $50 million, somehow convinced 400 of his estimated 50 million followers that only those who get castrated will be able to meet God. Surely there must be an easier – and less painful – way?? Apparently not.
The Indian pop-star and telepreacher is now being investigated after one of his former followers who underwent castration seven years ago spoke out against the guru and his group.
Navkiran Singh, who is the lawyer for Hans Raj Chauhan, the only castration victim so far to come forward, said his client and other victims believed they would become social outcasts if they refused to perform the “operation” demanded of them by Ram Rahim Singh.
Chauhan says the castrations began around 2000 and the painful procedures were carried out at a hospital owned by Singh in the Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan.
While the castrations didn’t bring the men any closer to God, it did stop 400 idiots from ever reproducing again, so there were some benefits. Plus, it should help India cut back on the number of rapes that occur every
year day minute.
As for the guru himself, I’m willing to bet that he still has his balls – especially since he has been accused of sexual assault by female followers.
