SIRSA (HARYANA): Dera Sacha Sauda spokesperson Dr. Dilawar Insa on Friday expressed anguish after the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) held chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh guilty of rape charges and said that they would appeal to the court against the unjust.

While appealing the people to keep silent, the Dera Sacha Sauda spokesperson said, “We will appeal to the CBI court against the injustice. Dera Sacha chief has been serving for the betterment of people.” “The history has been repeated where great saints have been convicted for doing something correct,” he added.

Earlier Janata Dal (United) veteran Sharad Yadav condemned the violence that is taking place after the DSS chief was held guilty and charged with the offence of rape, and said that when politics and religion are mingled together then similar situation takes place.

“The condition at present in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Pakistan can be compared with the ongoing Ram Rahim violence in the nation. Rahim is going to do the same in India through his followers. If you mingle politics and religion together then this will happen. Moreover, politicians are dependent on him for their vote bank,” Yadav told ANI.

He further said that there is still blind faith in India and the government is doing nothing to curb it.

“With violence around these states, how can the State Government control it? These political parties are themselves involved in it for collecting votes. People and police should not be blamed for such upheaval rather the politics behind it is to be blamed,” he asserted.

Meanwhile, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sack Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for the negligence of his duty in stopping the violence in parts of Haryana post the conviction of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in connection with a rape case.
