Radhe Maa, real name Sukhvinder Kaur and believed to be about 50-years-old, is currently the focal point of a storm of controversy. First, a picture of her in a red mini-dress went viral. She is usually seen in red bridal finery, a trident in her hand.
A 32-year-old woman has alleged that her husband and his family harassed her for dowry on the orders of Radhe Maa. She is also accused of driving a family of seven in Gujarat to suicide after failing to keep her promises to improve their lot.
The embattled godwoman's spokesperson told NDTV that "there is no truth to these allegations." (Also Read: Celebs Debate Radhe Maa Controversy, Jaago India, Says Rishi Kapoor)
Her critics include filmstar Rishi Kapoor who compared Radhe Maa to composer Bappi Lahiri, known for his garish outfits, in a tweet:

Radhe Maa's application for anticipatory bail has been rejected by a Mumbai court.
