Sirsa: The ‘Qurbani Wing’ of Dera Sacha Sauda on Wednesday issued a threat letter to kill journalists, former Dera followers, and Haryana police officers if they speak against rape convict self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim. “Will kill all opposing Gurmeet Ram Rahim,” the threat letter read. At least 200 children of Dera, who are ready to commit suicide, will take revenge from people who spoke against Ram Rahim, the letter stated.

The letter has also mentioned names of some of the media houses that have apparently spoken and written against Dera chief Ram Rahim after he was convicted by a Panchkula court in two separate rape cases and was sentenced to 20 years in jail. Coming out in defence of Ram Rahim, the letter accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government and Manohar Lal Khattar government of cheating Dera Sacha Sauda.

In August, the arrested Dera followers made a shocking revelation about the sect’s ‘Qurbani Wing’, recruited by Ram Rahim, set up to deal with extreme situations when their chief was in trouble. “The arrested men have told that they wanted to sacrifice themselves for the Dera chief and were part of the Qurbani wing,” a police officer told India Today.

They also revealed that before joining the Dera, the people are asked to sign an affidavit which states that if a person has joined the Dera under no pressure from the sect and they themselves would be responsible for any injury or even death.
