Along with 20 years of Rigorous imprisonment, the 50-year-old Dera chief has also been slapped a fine of ₹Rs 30 lakh, with the court ordering that Rs 14 lakh be paid to each rape survivor.
Special CBI judge Jagdeep Singh said the two sentences of 10 years each will run consecutively, and not concurrently. So, Ram Rahim will be in jail for 20 long years.
A CBI spokesperson said, “Baba Ram Rahim has been sentenced for 20 years. He will remain 20 years in jail as per the sentencing. It’s 10 plus 10 years sentence in two cases, and the sentence will run one after the other consecutively and not concurrently, plus a fine of Rs 15 lakh each in two cases.”
The confusion of the news of 10 years prison occurred because media didn’t had the copy of the court’s order earlier. But now, everything is clear.
Indians have welcomed the judgment and everybody is happy that the justice has been done. However, Ram Rahim was caught crying like a baby in the court, pleading for mercy. But actually, he does not deserve any mercy nor help.
The court quoted Mahatma Gandhi as saying, “To call a woman the weaker sex is a libel; it’s man’s injustice to Woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then the woman is immediately man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she of more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, the man could not be. If non-violence is the law of our being, the future is with a woman. Who can make a more effective to heart than woman?”
More of it, this is just another example of the fate of a person who is ‘Inhuman’ to Women. And for all the Women who have survived such kind of cases/conditions/feelings, it is to let them know that until they wouldn’t have the courage to fight for their dignity, until then the so-called “Over smart and Fake” man-dominance will continue to ruin their living. So, it’s the most important thing for the Ladies to always stand up for themselves and an urge to the society that stops the shit they are doing by trusting men like Rahim Rahim.
