This dude must be one smooth talker

Spiritual leader allegedly manipulated 400 men into removing testicles to be 'closer to God'

A man has been accused of encouraging hundreds of followers to be castrated in a promise for them to become closer to God.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, an Indian pop-star and telepreacher with a reported wealth of more than $50 million, is being investigated after he allegedly manipulated around 400 men to get their testicles removed – according to India Today.

One of his former followers who underwent castration seven years ago – named Hans Raj Chauhan – is one of the few to break the silence to speak out against him and the group.

"[The victims] were told that only those who get castrated will be able to meet God," said Chauhan's lawyer, Navkiran Singh, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
