Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s work permit has been cancelled by the Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) on the grounds of criminality, reported The Indian Express. CINTAA took the decision of cancelling the work permit of the self-proclaimed rock musician, actor and filmmaker Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh after he was sentenced to 20 years in prison for rape by the CBI court. ANI reported that the decision was taken on the grounds of criminality and moral turpitude.
Ram Rahim Singh has acted in many films that he has directed himself and also claims to be a singer. This year he released Jattu Engineer, also starring his daughter Honeypreet Singh Insaan who has gone into hiding after the Dera chief was sentenced to 20 years of jail time. Recently, the poster of another installment of his MSG aka Messenger of God franchise titled MSG Online Gurukul, which promised to showcase a never-before-seen world, and also highlighted the values that have been forgotten was released.
“Your wait is over!???? Introducing the first look of #MSGOnlineGurukul, a movie that will introduce the world to the vedic superscience!????,” Ram Rahim Singh had posted on his Twitter handle while releasing the poster. The Dera chief’s followers claim that he uses various sources of entertainment to keep his followers away from social evils like alcoholism, drugs and immorality.
It was claimed that Ram Rahim’s album had sold 3 million copies in just three days and he brought about a paradigm shift in music across several genres. The Dera chief was found guilty in a 2002 rape case by a special CBI court last week and was later sentenced to 20 years of jail time. The verdict triggered violence in Haryana that claimed 38 lives and injured over 250 people.
