Mewar tribes termed uncivilised by RamRahim
Mewar tribes to decided to reopen their old case and fight against RamRahim.
Way back in 2015, Mewar tribes were termed as uncivilised and wild by RamRahim. The agitated tribal leaders of Mewar have decided to fight their battle against RamRahim once again after he has been found guilty in molestation case.
The tribes of Mewar have decided to reopen their old case in which they had raised their voices against Dera Sachcha Sauda leader Gurmeet RamRahim. Gurmeet RamRahim had depicted the Mewar tribes as wild and uncivilised in an advertisement and even in the movie “Messenger of God-2”. The tribals are now planning their strategies against the Dera leader to express their anger by means of protest. The fight is going to be a legal one.
The tribal leaders of Adivasi Ekta Parishad Gangaram(Secretary) and Vela Ram Gogra, President of Bharatiya Adivasi Sanghamam said that RamRahim made many ashrams in tribal areas of Kotda and Jhadol in 2000-2001. After this, these tribals were referred to as extremely wild and uncivilised in “Messenger of God-2” and in one of the advertisements. They also said that the tribals had stood in opposition for such a pathetic display of their people. Police were approached but the matter was suppressed. Going ahead with the protest, former legislative member Late Meghraj Tavad along with other tribals had appealed to the President of India in 2015 to ban the film and take legal action against RamRahim.
The tribal leaders informed that Gurmeet RamRahim was habitual of presenting himself on silver screen. In September 2015 he made an advertisement titled “Adivasi bane Gentlemen”. The advertisement had subtitles that said “Tribals remain naked. They were uncivilised and knew nothing about education. Tribals always stayed drunk and ate raw meat.(This was not about stone age but about 2001).” It was also mentioned that before 2001, a murder or two every week were a common happening in Kotda and Jhadol. Further, it was mentioned that Dera Sachcha Sauda had converted these wild uncivilised tribes into civilised humans.
