SATHYA SAI and INDIA
Posted by robertpriddy on June 20, 2007
Indian dignitaries & well-known names worship Sathya Sai Baba in public and give credence to his megalomaniacal and impossibly absurd claims?
That alone is TRULY SCANDALOUS and a slur on their intelligence – or perhaps the intellectual honesty – of all involved [quite apart from the many serious allegations of sexual abuse and being a suspect murder accomplice]. A few of the lies promulgated by Sathya Sai Baba documented in his own words can be seen here, and here, and here! Indians who continue to allow this self-proclaimed Incarnation of God who says he sent Jesus to earth will become a world laughing stock as time goes by. On this blog I have shown a small sample of the deceptions and unbelievable claims made by Sai Baba:-
Sathya Sai Baba firmly claims that he was himself Krishna and was 84 years old at time of Mahabharata war and that he was also Lord Rama and did what is told in the Ramayana, defeating demons, flying in mantra-driven ‘airplanes’, killing Ravana, banishing his wife etc. How come most Indian politicians accept this?
Sai Legend Howlers
Fantastic legendary stories from Indian mythology are presented as fact by Sathya Sai Baba. This man is recognised as a holy sage by ca. 8 Indian Prime Ministers, Presidents, rich and famous Indians and many influential foreigners. It is worth thinking about how and why they let themselves be so easily deceived.
Creationist Museum in the US and Sai Baba’s claims as Creator
The world’s first creationist museum, which tells visitors the Earth is only about 6,000 years old. It is in the Petersburg, Kentucky. It makes many too fantastic claims, but does not mention the self-proclaimed Creator of the Universe, Sathya Sai Baba. He could have helped out a lot, one might think!
Sai Baba Howlers
The 2004 tsunami was dealt with ‘saientifically’ by Sathya Sai Baba – the clownish ‘saviour of mankind’ himself, the God who can save or deal out karma. He blamed it on ‘man’ – retribution for our bad conduct! It also devastated his own State of Andhra Pradesh. Volcanoes and earthquakes – he often proclaims – are the result of ‘man’s behaviour’. But they began long before man arrived! He is a thumping fundamentalist who says sensual pleasures are making human bodies weaker daily while life-spans shorten. Eye defects are developing due to ‘unsacred vision’! But he lost the sight in one eye himself!
So Here is a list of some names who support Sathya Sai Baba in public:-
Current President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Pratibha Patil (apparently all set to be the new next President of India)
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (long-term devotee of Sai Baba)
Minister for Home Affairs, Shivraj Patil (in the Singh government, despite having lost his seat in the last election!)
Former Chief Justice of India P.N. Bagawati has been close to Sathya Sai Baba for decades & is on The Sathya Sai Central Trust.
By 1995, it was possible to list more than 55 judges in the Supreme Court, high courts, chief justices, chairmen of various commissions who were Sathya Sai baba devotees.
Chief Justice, Dr A. Anand – Supreme Court of India.
Justices G.B. Pattnaik & R.C. Lahoti (who together blocked Mr. H. Sampath’s Supreme Court petition against Sai Baba see here).
Supreme Court judges G.F. Ray and Jagannatha Rao visited Sai Baba after the birthday celebrations of 23-11-1998. Justice J. Easwara Prasad wrote a panegyric in Sathya Sai Baba’s journal Sanathana Sarathi in Nov. 1990.
All the above accept – by their actions – Sathya Sai Baba’s unconstitutional authority to avoid proper and just investigations.
