India: The trouble in Punjab

Indian Muslims on the ongoing conflict between the sects of the same religion in Punjab. “That brings me to some really troubling happenings in Punjab recently. Apparently there is a sect called Dera Sacha Sauda that claims a following of 15 million people. 15 million is a huge number even in India and I did not even knew of its existence. The headquarters of Dera are located in Sirsa district of Haryana spread over 700 acres.”

    And ram rahim ordered his followers to kill newspaper editor and another dera follower ranjit singh. Definitely not a character of a pure saint.
