Remember when Kiku Sharda was arrested for mimicking self-procaimed godman AKA rapist AKA DSS chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insaan. Kiku got a bail and later had to apologies for his “mistake”.
Well, we all know Ram Rahim Singh, the now ex-head of Dera Sacha Sauda has been sentenced to 20 years in jail. He has been charged guilty of rape and given 10 years in jail. The Dera Chief was convicted in the case on Friday and soon reactions started pouring in.
Twinkle Khanna, wife of superstar Akshay Kumar, who is an author and columnist too had penned a piece on Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh for TOI. In the blog titled ‘When the Love Charger ran out of battery’, Twinkle had mentioned Kiku, who had been taken into judicial custody for ‘hurting the sentiments’ of Dera followers.
Here’s an excerpt from Twinkle’s blog – “Anyway, all this monkey business reminds me of a certain cheeky monkey and old colleague, Kiku Sharda who was jailed for mimicking the Love Charger. I think he should immediately go to the nearest Chinese restaurant to celebrate, order a beer and tell the waiter, ‘I don’t want any monosodium glutamate in my Schezwan chicken, you people should lock away your MSG too.”

For the uninitiated, Kiku was arrested for mimicking Ram Rahim in ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ episode aired on December 27, 2015.
This episode had Sharda mimic the Dera Sacha Saudahead, something which didn’t go down too well with his followers, leading them to file a police case against the actor.
The actor was booked under Section 295 A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for outraging religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious belief.
Kiku, on the very next day of the episode, wrote an apology on his twitter handle saying ,”Doston the act on TV was not to hurt anyone’s feelings. My apologies to @Gurmeetramrahim ji and his followers. Let’s spread happiness.”
While the Godman has been sentenced to prison. There is tense situation in the states and thousands of his followers earlier did a lot of public property damage.
