Activists of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Monday lodged a complaint against Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim for hurting the religious sentiments by allegedly posing as Lord Vishnu in a video.
A video in which Ram Rahim is seen descending from the sky in a get-up allegedly similar to that of Lord Vishnu went viral on the social media a couple of days ago.
Rahul, a VHP activist, filed a complaint with the Moga police against the dera chief for hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindu community by trying to imitate Lord Vishnu.

“Dera chief has insulted the God and hurt the religious feelings of the entire Hindu community by dressing up as Lord Vishnu,” Rahul said in the complaint.
However, the district police have not yet registered the first information report (FIR) in this regard. Moga senior superintendent of police (SSP) Mukhwinder Singh Bhullar said police had received the complaint, but the VHP activists were yet to provide them the video footage for proof. “Investigations will be carried out once the complainant hands over the video to us,” he said.
This is the second such controversy involving the dera chief as earlier he had been booked for imitating Guru Gobind Singh.
