first_imgAfter being jailed for 20 years in two rape cases, godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s son Jasmeet Insan will be nominated as the next chief of the Sirsa-based sect Dera Sacha Sauda.Ram Rahim’s mother Nasib Kaur announced that Jasmeet Insan will be nominated as the next Dera chief.She announced this in Dera core committee meeting this morning. She also slamed other 45 office-bearers for not taking Ram Rahim’s case seriously.In 2007, after being charged with rape and sexual exploitation of two sadhvis, Ram Rahim had anointed Jasmeet to be his successor.”The committee has 45 members who handle Dera affairs. Naseeb Kaur called an emergent meeting and announced Jasmeet as Dera’s next nominee. She has asked the committee members to start the nomination process within a couple of days,” a highly placed Dera source told India Today.The source said Naseeb Kaur has appealed all the Dera followers to accept Jasmeet as the sect’s nominee and said they may not accept him as their spiritual guru but he will be managing all Dera’s affairs. Announcing her support to the Dera chief, Naseeb Kaur also equated Gurmeet Ram Rahim with Guru Gobind Singh who was compelled to leave Anandpur Sahib when things went against him.Sources say the Dera chief in 1990 had himself announced Jasmeet Singh as his legal heir when he had kicked off a controversy by wearing a dress of Guru Gobind Singh.However, the founder of Dera Sacha Sauda Shah ji Satnam had announced that Gurmeet Ram Rahim will head the day till the age of 60 years. Shah Satnam in 1990 while handing over the Dera to him had made this announcement.advertisementJasmeet became the first anointed successor in a bloodline at the Dera Sacha Sauda, which was founded by Shah Mastana Balochistani in 1948 as social welfare and spiritual organisation.The final announcement will be made in a day or two.Besides Jasmeet Singh, Honeypreet and Vipassana were also in the race to lead the spiritual sect, mirred in multiple controversies.Dera chief mother’s announcement may lead to dissidence within the family. While his son Jasmeet Singh, 33, daughters Charan Preet, 36, and Amar Preet, 35, are his legal heirs, his foster daughter Honey Preet, 42, is a third member who can stake claim on the properties. Though none of them have so far made their claims public but a legal battle is evident.Both his daughters are already married. Jasmeet heads the sports department of Dera and is popular among the followers. Honeypreet Kaur, the so-called foster daughter of Dera chief was seen with him on many occassions. Interestingly, his biological daughters were rarely spotted with him. His wife was also rarely seen with him.Dera’s Sirsa campus is spread over 700 acres and has multi-specialty hospital, stadium among other properties. Dera has its ashrams across many states including Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Delhi.Also read:Ram Rahim rape sentence: With folded hands, Baba cried like a child, begged for mercy over 20-year jailRam Rahim conviction: Dera chief’s henchmen planned arson and rioting, investigation revealsRam Rahim Family History: The story of a devil, a saint and Papa’s angelsRam Rahim’s rape was pardon: The guru’s gufa and maafi of a sex fiendJournalist who exposed Gurmeet Ram Rahim rape case was shot dead outside his houseAlso watch:Gurmeet Ram Rahim sentenced to 20 years in jail, fined Rs 30 lakhlast_img
