Controversial ‘godwoman’ Radhe Maa charged with obscenity

NEW DELHI: Radhe Maa, a self-styled godwoman and spiritual leader, who has thousands of followers, has been charged by a Mumbai-based lawyer, Falguni Bramhabhatt, with performing obscene and vulgar dance steps during satsangs, conducting shady discourses, mental harassment, and fraud and cheating, according to news reports.

The woman has been accused of instigating a family to harass a woman for dowry.

A legal case under the Dowry Prohibition Act has been filed against Radhe Maa by one Nikki Gupta. Gupta also accused her husband and in-laws of harassment for dowry.

Gupta said her parents had given jewellery worth over Rs 1 crore at her wedding, but Radhe Maa allegedly had asked her in-laws to pressurise the girl for more dowry.

The in-laws of the complainant are staunch believers of Radhe Maa.

Meanwhile, some photographs of the so-called spiritual woman have gone viral on social media websites. These photos show her cavorting in a mini skirt.

Radhe Maa, however, has refuted all allegations against her. She wrote on her Facebook page: ‘The reports are full of inaccuracies, unsubstantiated allegations, and rumors that have no basis in fact.’

Radhe Maa’s real name is Sukhvinder Kaur. She was introduced to the world by her guru Shri Shri Mahant Ramdeen Das 1008 of Paramhans Bagh Dera Mukerian, Hoshiarpur, Punjab.
