After Ram Rahim, son Jasmeet Insan to lead Dera Sacha Sauda

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 read more

Wrestling KeShawn Hayes brings quiet consistent leadership to Ohio State

Ohio State wrestler Ke-Shawn Hayes rolled into the 2016-2017 season fresh off a 29-1 unattached record in his redshirt campaign. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsKe-Shawn Hayes is one of the quietest guys in the room.The redshirt junior is not normally the one first thought of when looking at the Ohio State wrestling team, with senior captain Myles Martin, redshirt junior Kollin Moore and redshirt senior Micah Jordan on the roster.Hayes knows he often goes unnoticed. It’s something he has embraced. “It’s easy to go unnoticed with the talent on our team. I’ve done pretty well so far,” Hayes said. “With the injury I had my freshman year and I also wasn’t named an All-American last year, it especially seems easier to go unnoticed, but I’m just trying to get better every day and improve every time I step on the mats.”After ending his redshirt freshman season in November after suffering a knee injury in 2016,  Hayes bounced back in a huge way last season, recording an overall mark of 29-7 with eight technical falls, seven major decisions and a pin. He placed third in the Big Ten Championships that season, earning the No. 5 seed in the NCAA Championships. According to Hayes, the knee injury hasn’t affected his ability to compete or earn accolades. This season, he said he is feeling better than ever before.Hayes said the competition on Ohio State’s roster is a grind to face in practice, but will help him in the long run. “Anytime you face this high level competition all the time, in our room alone, let alone the Big Ten season, it’s a grind on your body, especially when you’ve been doing it for so long,” Hayes said. “I’ve had a lot of little things here and there like anyone else, but I’m just trying to get better in my wrestling so that I have a lesser risk of another injury. Wrestling when you’re tired after an injury is something that I put off and it really hurt me last year, but I’ve been working on it and it won’t be an issue this year.”Having success on the wrestling mat has never been a problem for the redshirt junior.Dating back to his high school days, Hayes was the No. 4 overall recruit by InterMat and finished with a 38-0 record as a senior, leading Park Hill to its third-straight Missouri state championship. He won all but seven of his matches by pin or technical fall and was named the Kansas City All-Metro Wrestler of the Year.Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said Hayes’ track record in high school made him a valuable recruit and into what he is for the Buckeyes now.  “Ke-Shawn has always been a winner,” Ryan said. “He’s a gritty guy who has great character. He gets it done on the mats and in the classroom as well. He’s a great kid and a leader.”Hayes has racked up a nice list of accolades on the mats to be proud of, but out of all his accomplishments, Hayes said it’s his academic career at Ohio State that he is most proud of.“I’m most proud of the fact that I’ll be able to graduate early and have a Master’s Degree by the time I’m finished here,” Hayes said. “That’s definitely what I’m most proud of.” read more

first_imgGeorginio Wijnaldum has urged his teammates to fight on despite the blip they suffered at the Etihad Stadium.The Reds unbeaten run came to an end after Man City beat them 2-1 on Thursday night as goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane gave the hosts three points.Firmino’s equaliser wasn’t enough to salvage a point for Klopp’s men but Dutch midfielder Wijnaldum believes the loss will not dent their title aspirations.“I think we did enough to get a point and we could have won it also,” Wijnaldum told after the final whistle at Etihad Stadium.“We were quite unlucky with the chances but we also could lose it – like we have now.

Strengthening IndiaKorea ties

first_imgAt the time India played a pivotal role in helping Korea to get out of that tumultous situation. With the communist invasion of South Korea in 1950, the UN sent out a call to the free world for assistance. India decided not to get involved militarily but contributed a medical unit, the 60 Parachute Field Ambulance (60 PFA) which served in Korea for a total of four years.Acknowledging the contribution made by India during the Korean war, an exhibition at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea took place in the national Capital on Tuesday showcasing sixty years of close association with India. It showcased 23 photographs, 2 silver flutes and a bugle, which was used by Korean War Veterans during the Korean War in 1950. The occasion was graced by the presence of Cho Hyun ,ambassador of the Republic of Korea to India, Vikram Doraiswami – ambassador of India to Korea and was joined by the Head of the Korean War Veterans and  officials of the Indian army. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Throwing light on India’s role in the Korean war, Cho Hyun, said, “Korea was fortunate to have India, the source of an ancient and noble civilization, as a friend during the war. Without India’s support Korea would not have become what it is today”. Seeing the importance of these images for Korea, the Indian parachute medical unit donated all the showcased items to the Korean Government. This was a very proud moment for the both  countries. The future of India-South Korea bilateral relations looks promising. Apart from deepening economic and security, defence cooperation, there is a new political understanding between the two countries.

The strategic history of India with the Northeast Asia remained disjointed for almost four decades since the end of the war despite the important role played by the 60th Parachute Field Military Ambulance Platoon. A mobile army surgical hospital that treated more than half of the wounded soldiers, an average of 250-300 civilians a day, during the UN operations in late 1951, is still remembered with a lot of admiration and appreciation in South Korea.last_img read more
