Bollywood celebrities on Ram Rahim verdict

Bollywood celebrities like Twinkle Khanna, Anupam Kher, Raveena Tandon and Rishi Kapoor expressed their condemnation over violence that broke after Panchkula Special CBI court's verdict on Gurmeet Ram Rahim. After the court convicted Dera Sacha Sauda chief of rape and sexual assault of two women followers, the followers created a ruckus in many places of Punjab and Haryana. The angered Bollywood stars took a stand against the violence that took place in Punjab and Haryana in the name of blind faith. The violence took lives of 28 people and injured nearly 250 people. 

Twinkle took to Twitter and wrote: "Our fault Babas exist as we turn towards them like silly sunflowers looking for the sun,forgetting that a halo is just a trick of the light!"

Veteran actor Anupam Kher tweeted, "Violence is what #GurmeetRamRahimSingh seems to have taught his followers. This is nonsense & Govt. needs to use full force to STOP it NOW."

Rishi Kapoor wrote: Attach all Dera properties and sell them to compensate the national loss by arson and vandalism. Shame Gurmeet followers. No respect for you

Raveena Tandon posted, "The way the followers are reacting,rioting,itself proves what the cult was all about...saddened to see such shameful goons on the loose."

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta also wrote, "Why should violent mobs still be called 'followers'? What happened to 'terrorists'? Or is that term reserved?"

Actor Vir Das tweeted, "It's really quite simple...when your politicians use god to get or stay in power, they are not going to stand up to so called god-men."

Meanwhile, actress Esha Gupta also tweeted, "Again.. riots in the name of religion.. #RamRahimVerdict.. prayers with all those stuck in the riots stricken areas/states ????"
