Punjab: Even as the government ordered recall of Maggi noodle packets from across India, Baba Gurmeet Ram Raheem Singh Ji Insaan – the figurehead of Dera Sacha Sauda – announced his elation at there being “MSG” in Maggi.
“I am happy that MSG is also in Maggi now, very soon after I put it in movie theatres,” Mr. Insaan said, referring to his movie “Messenger of God”. And then suddenly cradling a packet of Maggi in his hand, he began singing, “Never Ever, I Forget You Never Ever, without You My Life Never Ever, You Are Mine Forever, You Every One`s Pride You Every One`s Life For Ever For Ever.”
This reporter later found out that this was a song from the same MSG movie which starred Mr. Insaan.
Meanwhile supporters outside the Baba’s house could be seen celebrating with packets of Maggi. “These idiots are the only people who are buying Maggi right now,” a kirana owner near the Baba’s Ashram said. “They are actually paying twenty rupees for a ten rupee pack.”
“Koi hum mein sant kehta hai, koi kehta hai farishta, koi kehta hai guru, toh koi kehta hai bhagwan … lekin hum toh hai sirf Insaan!” Baba G. R. R. S. Ji Insaan concluded, while slurping from a bowl of Maggi.
