Two sensational Indian TV reports on Sathya Sai Baba translated
Posted by robertpriddy on August 14, 2012
Thanks to a very well-informed blogger in India, translations of two TV reports from last year have been made available in English. These very negative reports revealing the massive cover-up of crimes by the Sathya Sai Baba ashrams and the Sai Central Trust were broadcast in Telugu in June of 2011, six weeks after the death of Sathya Sai Baba. There were also similar reports in Kannada on TV channels. These were the first such reports to appear on Indian TV and so get a wider airing, though the former activist, Basava Premanand, had long published (in print) a wide documentation of criminal incidents (murders and sexual abuse). The Sai authorities often bought up and destroyed as many of his publications as they could obtain. When my revelatory book ‘End of the Dream’ was published, several goondas even visited his house and threatened his brother if he would not hand over the entire stock to them… so desperate were the Trust and ashram leaders to stifle all real information about Sathya Sai Baba and his minions.
The translated transcripts are ‘must-read blogs’:-
