Who is “Radhe Maa” ?
Radhe Maa’s real name is Sukhvinder Kaur. She was born on 4 April 1965 in Dorangala village of Gurdaspur district in Punjab. According to people of her village, she did not show any spiritual leanings as a child.
After her husband left for Doha (Qatar) in search of a better job, she was attracted towards spiritualism. At the age of 23, she became a disciple of Mahant Ram Deen Das of 1008 Paramhans Bagh Dera Mukerian in Hoshiarpur district.
Ram Deen Das oversaw her deeksha (initiation ceremony), and gave her the title Radhe Maa (“Mother Radha”).
Soon, “Radhe Maa” moved to Mumbai in order to hold satsangs, this where she gained all the popularity.
Radhe Maa the female Asaram Bapu?
Woah, yeah, THOSE are some serious allegations, but obviously, they aren’t there for JUST any reason.
WHY? Well, because with such “spiritualism” in India, controversies come hand in hand !
She has been accused of obscene behaviour
Radhe Maa has been accused of indecent behaviour by advocate Falguni Brambhatt who has filed a complaint of obscenity, as the god-woman reportedly allows her followers to kiss and hug her.
She was banned from the Mahakumbh
She has been banned from the Nashik Kumbh mela on August 29 by the Dwarkapeeth Shankaracharya Swami Swarupanand.
Mahant Gyandas, who also claims to be the president of Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad said, “The entry of pretenders is rising in the sacred arena of sadhus and mahants. Trikal Bhavanta, Radhe Maa, and Sachchidananda, who is a liquor professional, should be restrained from participating in the ‘shahi snan’ (sacred bath).”
She has been accused for instigating the act of dowry
In July 2015, Nikki Gupta of the Gupta family named Radhe Maa, her husband Nakul Gupta and five others in a dowry-related complaint. Nikki accused Radhe Maa of instigating her in-laws to demand more dowry, and of forcing her to work at the ashram, where she was physically assaulted. The Guptas dismissed the allegations as a result of a matrimonial dispute.On 6 August 2015, the Mumbai Police declared her absconding in this alleged dowry harassment case, and issued a lookout notice against her.
And.. She causes suicides also?
After dowry charges, Radhe Maa has been accused of instigating four people to commit suicide. A report on NDTV.com, claims that the gowdoman and two of her accomplices had fooled a farming family of seven in Gujarat. She had allegedly taken Rs 1.5 crore from them to ensure peace and prosperity!
The farmers sold their land to pay her the money and committed suicide when they realised they’d been duped.
Well, with so much happening, she sure has gotten a hell lot of limelight. Lets see people’s take on the pious “Radhe maa”
Pictures of Radhe Maa allegedly taken in Dubai. Such style, much swag it seems !
This one is the best. Hahaha.. “ Rishi muni Rishi”
Finally, one a serious note
Lets not be ‘Emotional fools’ and be wise our decisions. Like its said, she no less human than any of us. She has kids, and grand kids, she goes on vacations, has an edgy dressing sense, then WTF? Whats “Radhe Maa” about her? Shes Sukhvinder and lets just leave it at that. Lets not encourage such shallow acts by people in the names of god. Its just yet another money making gimmick.
Here what Rishi Kapoors says at a show on NDTV. Its like a 100% true.
