Move aside Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh (Godman and star of the movie MSG: Messenger of God…the movie that got 0 stars), its the turn of Radhe Maa (god-woman) to hog the limelight. Unfortunately for her, she’s in the news for all the wrong reasons. First it was her pics wearing short skirts & obscene dance moves on Bollywood music. And now a complaint has been filed under the Dowry Prohibition Act by a woman, accusing Radhe Maa of instigating the woman’s in-laws and husband to harass her for dowry.
Who is Radhe Maa
If you have been following the news, you might probably be tempted to say who cares, but the fact is that there are thousands of her devotees who think she’s s saint. Some of her devotees consider her to be a reincarnation of goddess Durga.
Radhe Maa’s real name is Sukhvindar Kaur. She was born in Dorangla village in Gurudaspur district, Punjab. A temple is dedicated to her in Mukerian, Hoshiarpur district.
Unlike all the gurus — ancient and modern — Maa doesn’t speak. Not that she can’t, but she just doesn’t open her mouth in public, preferring to communicate with the poke of a trishul or the gift of a rose petal.
Radhe Maa’s organisation is quite tech-savvy and she also has a verified Facebook page. Like any modern godman/godwoman, she also has a feedback section on her website, with real testimonials, where people tell how she has changed their lives.
Bollywood filmmaker Subhash Ghai, Actor Gajendra Chouhan, Daler Mehndi, bhojpuri star Manoj Tiwari, Rakhi Sawant, Reality star Dolly Bindra, cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu are among her many followers who’re convinced that she has magical powers.

Rishi Kapoor at His Sarcastic Best
When the world woke up to the news of self-styled spiritual guru, Radhe Maa’s arrest, so did twitter and the online world. There were a barrage of tweets on the issue, as expected. Taking the cake and a lot of attention was Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor who was at his sarcastic best regarding the spiritual guru.
Rishi Kapoor, often known for his candor opinions laced with subtle to blatant sarcasm took to twitter to express his opinion with regards to the issue and express he did! Not only did he garner enough likes and retweets, he also forced us to take notice and write about it . Here are some of his bestselling tweets, just like his movies.
“Jaago India Jaago!Kamzori ka faida uthaya ja raha hai by these actors. I am too, but I entertain not deceive. Sochna,”
Don’t get fooled by the serious connotation of the tweet above because that is where the seriousness ended. He went further to post a picture of FTII chairman, Gajendra Singh along with Radhe Maa and this is what he had to say:
An aspiring FTII student blessing an spiring FTII Principal. Jai ho Radhe Radhe!!

Rishi Kapoor didn’t stop just at Radhe Maa. He took a dig at other spiritual guru as well. In the next tweet, he makes a dig at spiritual guru, Sarathi Baba:
Make up,lipstick,eye shadow,jewellery et al. for discourses? Is that my friend Bappi Lahiri without his glasses?

But the icing on the cake was when Rishi Kapoor didn’t spare himself or his movies either. Sporting, we say!

The next Baba! “Rishi muni Rishi” Already an actor so all geared up for the Dhongee rip off!
Keep us entertained Mr. Kapoor because we ain’t complaining!
Sonu Nigam come out in support of Radhe Maa, although he said that if she’s proven guilty by the law, she’ll need to be punished by law.
Nigam said that before proven guilty by the law, she’s as respectable a citizen as you and me. Besides, “How does the number and length of clothes on a person define his or her spiritual quotient,” he asked. We have issues with her dancing on songs, most dancers like Hema Malini, portray Durga ballet on stage regularly. So? Big Deal? If her devotees have no issues with it, why should we be bothered? They see their God in a dancing Guru, many others see their God’s in a Sai Baba Idol, or a Shiva Idol!!”
Slamming critics, he wondered what kind of a country Indians were living in where people cannot discuss an issue without using foul language, circulating semi-pornographic images and reducing someone’s dignity to trash. Over the years, there is another kind of rowdy mob of hooligans, a Twitter Mob, that has no boundaries. That will mercilessly and pointlessly abuse and attack, you could be a senior actor, you could be someone’s wife or mother. They don’t care!”
“But I put across my point in complete awareness of the consequences .. I know that religious hypocrites go on offensive when they are cornered philosophically. Rational point of views, have always received brickbats initially before the wise of the society come together to empower it,” Nigam said.
As expected, Sonu Nigam’s post evoked sharp reactions, with many people construing it as support for the high-profile Radhe Maa.
