Spiritual leader allegedly manipulated 400 men into removing testicles to be ‘closer to God’

A man has been accused of encouraging hundreds of followers to be castrated in a promise for them to become closer to God.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, an Indian pop-star and telepreacher with a reported wealth of more than $50 million, is being investigated after he allegedly manipulated around 400 men to get their testicles removed – according to India Today.

    Poor men!

    Not much different than the god of Abraham telling all his flock to cut their foreskin off, eh?

      I suggest a basic anatomy lesson.

        If the mohel doesn’t know the difference between testicles and foreskin then it might be time for a new mohel or possibly new glasses.

        • passerby1969

          The point is the same…..the idea that any god wants any part of people lobbed off is primitive thinking.

            What if he wanted you to remove your appendix when it became inflamed?

          • passerby1969

            I’ve never heard a god telling me to remove an appendix.

          • DVult

            It was a conditional statement hence the if. The point was if someone claimed God told him to tell you to do something then it would be against your better interests to reject it if in fact doing it would be good for you. Cutting off the old nuts seems to me to definitely not be in the good for you category but other things might be.

            One prevents procreation they other decreased the chances of infections back before modern anti-biotics that is a huge deal.

          • passerby1969

            Yes, but we have antibiotics now. So circumcision today is a primitive act. Even more primitive to associate with any kind of desire by a god.

            Better it (circumcision of both sexes) get thrown on the rubbish bin of history, along with hysterectomies for emotional women.

    I guess he doesn’t lead by example.

    Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan is accused of rape. In 2002, one of his female followers alleged that she and two other females were raped by Ram Rahim in his den when she entered his secret chamber where he was watching a blue film. The rape victim later wrote a letter to the then PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the Judges of Punjab and Haryana court. In her letter she accused this Rockstar Baba of raping her. The court ordered a CBI probe. In 2007, CBI charged this Saint under sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of Indian Penal Code.

    When the CBI charged The Dera chief, he had around 130 female volunteers.18 had left the Dera due to mysterious reasons. When questioned 2 out of 18 confessed that they were raped, others were frightened to reveal anything as they claimed that there are dangerous people behind Dera and they will harm them. Soon, an editor of the Sirsa based newspaper – Poora Sanch was murdered when the paper published a report which mentioned all the illegal activities carried out in the Dera.

    No word on whether he led by example?

  • DVult

    10% of spiritual leaders are responsible for 90% of castrations. This guy may have upped the numbers.

  • P_F

    After castrating 400 men did this spiritual leader took their wives/girlfriends in as sex slaves?

    • Exile1981

      I was thinking the same thought.

  • Exile1981

    Can we convince him to preach to muslims the joys of this procedure?

    • passerby1969

      Muslims and Jews already have their own primitive whacking off of the penis procedure. God wants all their foreskins.
