An Early Beginning
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was born at Sri Gurusar Modia in Rajasthan. He had a very modest upbringing and did many odd jobs and social work at the Dera as his father was a follower of Shan Satnam Singh. On retirement, Shah Singh surprisingly announced Gourmet as a leader of Dera by conferring upon him the title of Huzoor Maharaj Gurmeet Ram Rahim. By that time Gurmeet was married and had three children two daughters and a son.
Corruption Due to Political Support

There were rumors that Gurmeet had raped many young women and girls in the tunnel that was built to carry rape, sexual assault and other politically influenced activities like riots, blockade and other violent activities. He is known to have been funded by the then ruling party RSS and later had the support of the BJP. These individuals were known to have taken help from Gurmeet during elections and for votes.
Letter That Leads to Gurmeet’s Conviction in Rape
The letter that led to Rahim convicted of violation was sent to the Prime minister and the Haryana CM. The letter that was written by a sadhvi of the Dera accused Gurmeet of repeatedly raping her and her other fellow sadhvis in the premises itself. The other sadhvis were afraid of disclosing this to their respective families as they were staunch supporters of the Dera regime and would not believe them. She wrote in the letter that they were invited to the room that was in the tunnel where Gurmeet was lying with a remote in his hand and a porn movie playing in the background. This was done on repeated occasion, and one day finally she decided to come in the open to reveal the real Ram Rahim contrary to the image he was portrayed in the general public.
