Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim is now in jail. In fact, the link to expose the dera’s deeds is related to an anonymous letter from 19 years ago. This letter was written on 13 May 2002 addressed to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. This letter was also sent to all the media organizations. At that time only a few selected newspapers had published it, but after this letter came to the fore, there was a stir in Punjab and Haryana.
At the time when this anonymous letter surfaced, Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Insan had a strong presence in many states including Punjab and Haryana. This was the time when the big politicians of that time used to bow their heads in Dera Sacha Sauda for vote bank. The special CBI court in Panchkula in which Ram Rahim was convicted in the Ranjit murder case is also related to this anonymous letter.
The journalist who printed the letter first was murdered
At that time Ranjit Singh was the manager of Dera Sirsa. His sister was a Sadhvi in this camp. The Dera management suspected that it was Ranjit Singh who had got this letter written by his sister. The case of murder of Sirsa journalist Ramchandra Chhatrapati was also related to this letter. Ramachandra was the first to publish this letter in his newspaper. After that Chhatrapati continuously published the matter in the newspaper, which became the reason for his murder. Now read that letter, which exposed the dark exploits of the Dera chief…

To, Honorable Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Government of India Subject: Investigate the rape of hundreds of girls by the Maharaj of Dera
Sir, the request is that I am a resident of Punjab and working as a sadhu girl in Dera Sacha Sauda Sirsa, Haryana (Dhan-Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Aasra) since 5 years. Along with me, hundreds of girls here also serve 16 to 18 hours in the dera. We are being physically abused here. Along with it is being sexually abused (rape) by Maharaj Gurmeet Singh of the dera.
I am BA pass girl. My family members are blind devotees of Maharaj, because of his inspiration, I became a sadhu in the dera. After 2 years of becoming a monk, one day Sadhu Gurujot, the supreme disciple of Maharaj Gurmeet, told me at 10 o’clock in the night that you have been called by your father to the cave (the place of residence of the Maharaj).
I was very happy because I was going there for the first time. Knowing that today God Himself has called me. Going upstairs into the cave, I saw Maharaj sitting on the bed. There is a remote in hand, a blue film is playing on the TV in front. The revolver is kept on the bed towards the head.
I was surprised to see all this. I started feeling dizzy. The ground beneath my feet slipped. What is this happening. Will it be like this sir? I had never thought of this even in my dreams. Maharaj turned off the TV and made me sit with him and gave me water and said that I have called you as my special sweetheart.
This was my first day. Taking me in the arms, Maharaj said that we want you from our heart. I want to fall in love with you, because you had asked us to surrender our body, mind and wealth to the Satguru while becoming a sage with us. So now this body and mind is ours. On my protest, he said that there is no doubt that we are God. When I asked if this was the work of God, he said-
In this way my face is blackened and it is happening after 20-30 days in the last three months. Today I came to know that the face of all the girls who lived before me has been blackened. The 35-40 sadhu girls present in the dera are over the age of 35-40 years who have passed out of the age of marriage. Those who have compromised with the circumstances, most of these girls are BA, MA, BEd, MPhil pass but are living the life of hell due to superstitious family members. We should wear white clothes, keep a chunni on our head, do not look at any man with eyes, stay at a distance of 5-10 feet from the man is the order of the Maharaj. There are goddesses in appearance, but our condition is like prostitutes.
Once I told my family that everything is not right in the camp, then my family members got angry and started saying that if it is not right while living with God, then where is it. Bad thoughts have started coming in your mind. By worshiping the Satguru.
I am compelled Here the order of the Satguru has to be obeyed. No two girls can talk to each other here. Can not talk to family members by telephone. If we get calls from the family members in our name, we do not have any order to talk as per the orders of the Maharaj. If a girl talks about this truth of the dera, then the Maharaja orders to shut her mouth.
Recently, when the sadhu of Bathinda exposed the black deeds of Maharaj in front of all the girls, then many sadhu girls beat him together. Who is still lying on the bed due to this beating at home. Whose father has got his name cut off from the servicemen and made him sit in the house quietly. Whatever she wants, she is not telling anything to anyone out of fear of slander and Maharaj. A sadhu girl from Kurukshetra district who has come home has told everything true to her family members. His brother was a big servitor, who has left the service and broke away from the camp.
When a girl from Sangrur district who came home and told the neighbors about the black deeds of the dera, the servitors/goons of the dera came to the girl’s house armed with guns. Threatened to kill by locking from inside the house and asked not to tell anything to anyone in future.
Similarly there are many girls, such as from district Mansa (Punjab), Ferozepur, Patiala, Ludhiana, who are silent even at home because they are in danger of life. Similarly many girls of district Sirsa, Hisar, Fatehabad, Hanumangarh, Meerut who are not speaking anything in front of the hooliganism of the dera. Along with all these girls, I will be killed along with my family if I write my name and address in it, because I can’t keep quiet and don’t want to die.
I want to bring the truth to the public. If you get the investigation done by any agency through the press, then 40-45 girls present in the dera, who are in fear and fear, are ready to tell the truth after giving full confidence. Our medical checkup should be done so that our parents and you will know whether we are Kumari Devi sadhus or not. Our medical report will clearly show that our life has been ruined by Maharaj Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Sant of Dera Sacha Sauda. The applicant was compelled to live the life of an innocent Jalalat (Dera Sacha Sauda Sirsa)
