The sentence was passed by Jagdeep Singh, a special CBI judge, in a makeshift court in the Sunaria jail where Ram Rahim, 50, had been lodged since his conviction on Friday.
Here's how Twitter reacted on sentencing of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh:
#RamRahimSentencing 10 years isn't enough for the heinous crimes committed but it's a start we can live with.

Where death sentence is also not enough. Only 10 years?? Our rape laws should be more stringent. #RamRahimSentencing #unfair
