Ram Rahim, convicted in three cases involving two murders and the rape of two women, is serving his sentence in a Haryana jail. The frequent grants of parole have raised concerns and led to criticism of Haryana’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for its support.

Last year alone, Ram Rahim was out on parole for a total of 91 days, with releases for 21 days in November, 30 days in July, and 40 days in January. These releases were supposedly to attend the birth anniversary of former Dera chief Shah Satnam.
