Rehabilitation of women forced into prostitution has been a difficult task for most social reformers due to the social stigma and the reluctance of the members of the society to accept them back into the mainstream.
But on an exhortation by Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan of Dera Sacha Sauda, scores of young men have come forward to marry such hapless girls and thus rehabilitate them.
Till now, over 1500 young Dera followers called “Bhakt Yodha” (Devout Warriors) have publicly announced their intentions to marry sex workers. Over 278 families have come forward to accept them as sister / daughter and 57 families have expressed their intentions to adopt previously born children of rehabilitated sex workers following Guruji’s call to the devotees to counter the evil of prostitution.
Dera Sacha Sauda has thus established yet another milestone in humanitarian service unparalleled in the history of world.
