Chandigarh: Days after comedian Kiku Sharda was arrested for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of his followers, Dera Saccha Sauda leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim is facing similar charges himself.

As per a report in Mail Today, All India Hindu Student Federation, in a complaint to Mohali Police, has accused Ram Rahim of hurting religious sentiments by dressing up as Lord Vishnu.

In a video – available online – Ram Rahim can be seen descending from the sky as Lord Vishnu. Students leaders are not amused with the act and have sought that the police lodge a FIR against the self-styled guru.

However, the police is yet to file an FIR against the Sirsa based guru, who also commands sizeable influence in the doaba region of Punjab.

Hindu leaders now plan to approach DGP of Punjab Police with their grievance. Hey have also threatened to move the court if the police fails to take action against Ram Rahim.

This is the second time Gurmeet Ram Rahim is facing such a charge. He had earlier invited the ire of the Sikh community by gressing up like tenth Sikh guru Gobind Singh, a charge he has denied.
