Is India a Moral Engine and Social Ideal to Emulate?
Sathya Sai Baba holds that India’s problems – and the world’s decline into immorality (sic) is caused by the lack of
‘holy’ sacrificial rituals [‘yagnas’ and ‘yagas’]. These alone can make India great as the motor which will pull all countries into a golden moral age. India’s continued vast problems of poverty and corruption show how absurd this religious talk is.
Rich and Poor in India
The wealth gap in India is gigantic! The rich are in clover, millions of the poor are destitute. Sai Baba has received billions for charity, but far too much is used to build self-glorifying ‘spiritual museums’ and wasteful flagship projects, while he charters private passenger jets for himself. Eleven million from Isaac Tigrett’s $39 million donations were embezzled by Sai Baba ‘officials’.
India – God-driven or God-forsaken?
Religious supersition masquerading as ‘spirituality’ still suppresses human rights and social equality in India, and Sathya Sai Baba is a spokesperson against both these human values! That is how his self-proclaimed role as universal world teacher and preceptor really is!
Repeatedly, India’s flood problems hit the poor but not the rich
Super-Rich Indian Gurus who don’t deliver what they promise
Many Indiangurus have become super-rich who have promised far more than they can ever deliver. These include Osho/Rajneesh, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Sathya Sai Baba, Ravi Shankar and many more. Sai exceeds the others in pretending to be a renunicate. claiming he is selfless, has no property or worldly goods… one of the smartest accounting tricks but most obvious deceits imaginable.He lives in luxury and pomp, sits of his golden chariot and never has to lift a finger for his daily wants.
India’s World Reputation
All Sai Baba’s officials, organization and devotees have to suppress many facts about Sai Baba so as to present him only or mainly as a social reformer and moral teacher. Otherwise they are excluded and demonised. Many Indians who tend to support him are doubtless unware of the sheer extent of the deceit, fraud and irrationality involved. Stories about truly unbelievable miracles by Sathya Sai Baba fill hundreds of books. India’s reputation should not be dragged down further than it may already have been by this man.
Avoidance of the law in India
India’s has a two-tier and often corrupted system of justice, which explains why murders can pass unpunished and even uninvestigated. Many highly-placed Sathya Sai Baba devotees in thelegal system and successive Indian Governments, have protected him from court proceedings for the sexual abuses and murder involvement of which he stands widely accused.
Religion and Sex Abuse
Religious sexual abuse is at last increasingly being tackled and victims are being compensated in developed countries, not least by the Catholic Church and other sects, including the Hare Krishna movement, though the guilty have so far mostly escaped prison. In India 53% of children report sex abuse, but little is being done. So far Indian authorities have protected rich and powerful Sathya Sai Baba, who is most widely accused of long-term sex abuses on young men and boys.
God Lives In India
Sathya Sai Baba has announced that, being a full avatar incarnation of God Almighty, he never incarnates anywhere else on earth but in India. This, he says, is a cardinal reason for national prestige and self-confidence! The title ‘God lives in India’ has been used for a film, a book and a music album, all referring to Sai Baba.
World AIDS Day, India. Sai Baba is silent on the issue!
Most victims of HIV/AIDS in India are women. Indian women wishing to emancipate themselves are up against one of the most chauvinistic male societies in the East, and Sathya Sai baba condones and defends the status quo in that he never speaks up or describes about the terrible sufferings women there must endure.
Sathya Sai Baba and AIDS
Sai Baba never speaks up on India’s great AIDS problem, avoids all sex-related issues likke prostitution, devadasis, condoms, sex abuse and homosexuality (his Achilles heel).
