Part of our Const

Part I of our Constitution and those,8 per cent,snack foods and alcohol to make themselves feel better, though that didn’t translate into a win for Akali-BJP combine.The point is that no political party is in a position to challenge Ram Rahim’s clout Which explains whythe Opposition is quiet about the verdict and the ruling party ishemming and hawing in carrying out the court order and trying every trick in the book to prove to Ram Rahim that their hands are tied What has confused many during the fallout is themassive support for Ram Rahim among his followers despite the court order against him It’s almost as if his fans were not ready to acknowledge the writ of the State and staged an orgy of violence to show their defiance of the court order It will be too simplistic to call their reaction an act of organised thuggery (though that was definitely a factor) but the fanatical support that these sect-leaders command cannot be explained away solely in terms of a client-patron relationship These cultish sect-leaders operate on the tricky intersectionality of subaltern power failure of the State and blind faith Most of these spiritual gurus provide basic public services that a low-capacity State fail to provide The weakness of State institutions creates a void where these quasi-religious sects provide a variety of social services In the case of Punjab and Haryana Ram Rahim’s DSS (which has been registered as an NGO) provides a host of such services It reportedly conducts camps for blood donation raises awareness against drug abuse (a particularly toxic problem in these states) offers online meditation courses funds and constructs hostels for young girls hospitals helps with the rehabilitation of sex workers by employing them in small-sector enterprises The sect also represents the underclass among Sikhs and almost 70 percent of its members are Dalits The DSS brought Dalit assertiveness in a strictly hierarchical society and its followers enjoy a measure of egalitarian empowerment through Ram Rahim who denounces all caste practices Sikhism doesn’t believe in caste but nevertheless the Jat-Khatri fraternity has cornered the corridors of power Their dominance has been challenged by a push back from below led by power brokers like Ram Rahim which tells us why radical Sikh leaders are the only ones to welcome the court verdict This may also help explain the fanatical support of the underclass for their ‘pita’ (father) who see in Singh’s conviction a State-sponsored conspiracy to undermine him It is very easy to call his followers "fools" or suggest that they lack in intelligence for failing to recognise or respect a court order but we must remember that democracy rules through consensus and a massive number of followers fervently believe in the narrative that their leader has been ‘victimised’ for standing up against oppression The complainant whose letter eventually led to the conviction against Ram Rahim told TheIndian Express of the unflinching backing that he enjoys from his followers "If anybody complains against the Dera chief their parents would tell them ‘you are wrong’" There are no easy answers This vicious cycle of tyranny and victimhood will continue as long as the State doesn’t ramp up its capacity-building These exploitative godmen will go out of coinage only when they are no longer of any use to the people But looking at the state of governance that’s not likely to happen any time soon By: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Updated: August 27 2017 4:42 pm Microsoft has stopped selling the original Xbox One in the
