Dera Sacha Sauda Case History
Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) is an Indian religious group and non-profit social welfare organisation (Dera) that was established on 29 April 1948 by Mastana Balochistani, an ascetic follower of Baba Sawan Singh, the second Satguru of Radha Soami Satsang Beas as a centre for religious learning. After Baba Sawan Singh, the movement split into four groups, one of them led by Mastana Balochistani. After the death of Mastana Balochistani, his movement was split into three groups, with Satnam Singh leading the Sirsa group, who selected Gurmeet Ram Rahim to be his successor. Dera Sacha Sauda’s main centre is located in Sirsa, Haryana. The organisation has 46 ashrams across India and other countries.
Under the leadership of Mastana Balochistani, 25 Ashrams were established in Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan, where Naam method of Meditation was taught to the followers who accepted three principles for the rest of their life: No consumption of meat, egg or gelatin, no consumption of alcohol, drugs, tobacco etc. and no adultery or illicit sex. He also laid the foundation of the main ashram in 1948 and coined the expression “Dhan Dhan Satguru Tera Hi Asra” (Blessed are you the true guru, you are my shelter) widely used by the Dera.
Shah Satnam Singh led the Dera from 1963 to 1990. He was succeeded by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in 1990, who established many more ashrams and made Dera a much more visible organisation.
The current leader, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who claimed to have over 60 million followers worldwide is a controversial figure in India and was convicted of rape and accused of murder.
