About The Book

How did a nondescript young man from a farming family become thehead of a quasi-religious sect with a million followers, willing to die andkill for their 'Pitaji'? The story of the rise of 'Gurmeet Ram Rahim SinghInsaan Maharaj' of the wildly popular Dera Saccha Sauda, was anythingbut ordinary. It allegedly involved gory murders, sexual exploitation, forcedcastrations, private militias, illegal trade in arms and opium, and land grabat an untold scale, until the self-styled godman was convicted for one ofhis many crimes in August 2017. The book originates in 2007 from the first-ever journalistic investigation into the reported criminal activities at theDera. In the years since, the author continued to document those waginglonely battles for justice against the powerful godman. This book is asmuch about the grit and determination of ordinary citizens fighting powersystems, as it is about the depravity of a man and how he was ultimatelybrought to justice.
