ROHTAK : Why these Babas who enjoy political patronage , keep private armies and large number of illegal imported arms ? This question can be asked as large number of illegal arms have been seized from Dera headquarter .
While Madarsas are usually defamed as terrorists dens , facts after the Dera raids also revealed that the Ashrams of Babas are storing huge cache of lethal and imported fire arms , and these Babas also keep private trained armies , which consists of retired armed forces personnel as well as privately trained youths .
A big question is that while intelligence agencies keep close eyes over Masjids and Madarsas , how they close their eyes from Ashrams where large number of imported and banned arms find place in the hands of thousands of followers of Babas , some of who even float private militias .
According to latest report ,Haryana police has recovered a huge cache of uktra modern arms and ammunition from the headquarter of Dera Sacha Sauda in Sirsa.The police claimed that seized arms included 9 mm pistols , modified carbines , and several single , double barrel rifles .
Police officers said that there is possibility of seizure of more weapons. According to a report , a relative of Baba ram Rahim , while commenting over the seizure of arms from the Ashram said ,”All followers in Dera posses such weapons .Even the female followers also carry weapons .There are around 14000 to 20000 Green Force commandoes , of Baba Ram Rahim who posses modern weapons and they are given special training to use these weapons .
The big question is , why police did not take action , all these years , and why Baba’s private army with large number of imported weapons , banned for public use , were allowed , was allowed to operate for so long , without any challenge ?
A report in Daily Mail in November 2014, revealed that like Baba Ram pal, Dera chief Baba Ram Rahim had private army to protect him and his Ashram.
The Daily Mail report also claimed that this militia of Dera chief includes serving and retired army personals who train youngsters in military and commando tactics. This report was published after BJP came to power in Delhi , and Dera chief , first time , supported BJP openly .But nobody cared about such reports then.
