Producers accused of tax evasion
By Manjeet Sehgal in Chandigarh
Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) Youth Wing chief Digvijay Singh Chautala on Monday accused Dera Sacha Sauda and Hakikat Entertainment Private Limited, the producers of Messenger of God, of Rs 15- crore tax evasion.
“Hakikat Entertainment has collected Rs 60 crore by selling tickets for the première, but did not pay entertainment tax worth Rs 15 crore. We have requested the commissioner (excise and taxation) to register an FIR against the people involved and recover the tax amount,” Chautala said.
The INLD leader has also demanded a ban on the screening of the controversial film.
Chautala said Ram Rahim cannot be a messenger of god as he is facing serious criminal cases. He also said the dera chief was trying to frighten the people by presenting himself as god.
Earlier on Sunday, the much-talked about premier of the film was cancelled in Gurgaon even though over two lakh tickets had been sold.
Godman, miracle man, superman ( Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Movie MSG)
One of the seven members of the revising committee who watched MSG on Monday said that it promotes obscurantism and blind faith, depicts Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh as a miracle worker second only to god in his ability to vanquish Punjab’s drug addiction problem, restore sight to the blind, cure terminally ill patients and single-handedly destroy his opponents. “If this were a film starring Hrithik Roshan as a superhero, we would have passed it,” said the revising committee member on the condition of anonymity. “But in this film, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is playing himself, not a fictional character. He reinforces his cult’s beliefs through the film, and although he claims to be only a messenger of god, his followers call him ‘Bhagwan’ in the movie.”
Even Superman cannot make the blind see again, the revising committee member pointed out. “We were not sure that we were competent enough to take a decision on a movie that has the potential to create conflict,” the member said.
In 1992, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh took charge of the Dera Sacha Sauda, whose strongholds include Punjab and Haryana. Ever since Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s ascent, the sect has clashed, often violently, with the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee, the official body that governs Sikhism. In 1997, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh issued advertisements in which he was dressed to bear a close resemblance to Sikh leader Guru Gobind Singh, leading to riots in Punjab.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s show business-influenced preaching style has made him a YouTube sensation. According to his Wikipedia page, he has released six music albums in the last two years, including the perkily named Highway Love Charger. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh also holds rock concerts, has a Twitter account, and dressed as flamboyantly as the average glam rocker.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s colourful antics have kept pace with accusations, many of which have reached the courts, of rape, murder and castration of male followers. Clearly, he is already a character even before he embarked on MSG: The Messenger of God.
