Post Rape Guru

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-41079736

A judge who sentenced a controversial Indian guru convicted of rape to 20 years in prison called him a "wild beast" who deserved no leniency.

Judge Jagdeep Singh said in his order that Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's assault of his disciples was "custodial rape" and he "deserved maximum punishment".

The self-styled holy man was found guilty of sexually assaulting two female followers from 1999 to 2002.



Like all evangelists - corrupt to the bone and all about money, influence and power.


In a strongly-worded order, Judge Singh said the convict deserved the "maximum punishment" because he had "projected himself as a Godman and taken undue advantage of his position and authority", the BBC's Geeta Pandey reports from Delhi.

"The victims put the convict on the pedestal of 'god' and revered him. However, the convict committed breach of the gravest nature by sexually assaulting such gullible and blind followers," the order read.


Hallelujah - preach good sir! It's past time we stopped these snake oil sellers from leeching off of society.

Ram Rahim Singh's followers turned violent and 38 people were killed after his conviction on Friday.

Damn, Indians take their Holy Men seriously.

India guru rape: Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh jailed for 20 years

He also faces more rape charges and maybe even a murder charge. It took it's sweet time but at least they got him behind bars now.

It's a pretty significant step, and the judge's comments echo those of secularist societies in India.

It's a great outcome and I hope that other bullshit scam artists like this lose their grip on the minds of those victims.
