Tribune News Service
Followers of Dera Sacha Sauda have started showing an unusual love for Shaheed Bhagat Singh.
Shops and other commercial establishments being run by dera followers have begun displaying the photographs of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, replacing those of Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
The reason behind this move could not be known. However, information gathered by TNS revealed that most of the dera followers had done so to avoid any kind of harassment by members of various Sikh organisations.
Interestingly, some of the Hindu families, which were having ‘unflinching loyalty’ towards Dera Sacha Sauda sect, are accepting siropas to join their respective religious fold. So far about 400 families of Bathinda, Mansa, Muktsar and Sangrur districts have shunned their ties with the dera.
Pawan Kumar, a spokesperson of the dera said these followers were never ever part of the sect. He added that they had never asked its followers to shun their parent religion.
