Dera violence: Twinkle Khanna points out everything that is wrong with worshipping 'Godmen'

Twinkle Khanna took to Twitter to give her opinion on the violence that erupted after Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted in rape case

Twinkle Khanna has joined the list of celebrities who have condemned the violence in Punjab, Haryana and neighbouring states. The states witnessed a rampage after the chief of Dera Sacha Sauda Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted of rape. The followers of the self-proclaimed Godman brought these Northern states to a standstill. While this is a failure of the administration, Twinkle Khanna rightfully pointed out what is wrong in the nation.

The Mrs Funnybones of Internet wrote, “Our fault Babas exist as we turn towards them like silly sunflowers looking for the sun, forgetting that a halo is just a trick of the light!” In these trying times, Twinkle Khanna has said what was needed most. The power which followers give to Godmen is truly alarming. Since these Godmen enjoy a blind fan following, political leaders too seek their help during elections. With ‘support’, these leaders are elected and later when followers violate law and order, the ones in the administration seem helpless. This is a vicious cycle which ceases to exist.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s punishment is yet to be announced, but the tension started even before it. The army has been deployed in tensed areas and the administration has promised strict actions will be taken against law breakers.
