Major sabotage by Sai college teacher averted, including murder threats against Basava Premanand
Posted by robertpriddy on January 16, 2008
A former Sai college student, who subsequently became a teacher at the Sai College in Puttaparthi – Murali Krishna Yachendra – carried out an extensive major sabotage attempt against critics of Sathya Sai Baba. He started with an entry submitted to the International Sai Petition claiming he was a sex abuse victim. This was investigated, firstly by e-mail questions – and he followed-up with mails about sex abuses and much more. He was asked by the current Sai petition administration to contact Barry Pittard and Basava Premanand with his ‘information’… which led to a very long set of e-mails in which he compounded his lies to such an extraordinary extent over many months, involving a number of other (fictitious) sexually abused students from different e-mail addresses and IPs.
He claimed knowledge of massive sex exploits, murder plans and embezzlements by Sai Baba and his institutions or hired assassains, promising documentation in full. NB! Sai Baba offered huge cash payment to anyone who would murder Premanand? M.K. Yachendra stated in an e-mail (sent 3.1.2005): “in March 1998 before one of my students very eyes Sathya Sai Baba offered someone Rs. 10,00,OOO/- to eliminate Mr. Premanand”. (Thereupon he was promptly reported to the police by Premanand). Also M.K. claimed that he himself had survived three murder attempts by Sai Baba goondas,and that his uncle had photos of Sai Baba sexually abusing males at his palace in Venkatagiri. (Of course, it was all a lies – a monstrous scam to try to lure Premanand into speaking out about it and so discredit all critics of Sai Baba. But instead he was reported to the police by Premanand. However, the exSaiBaba group members played up to his pretences so as to discover and – if possible – expose the massive lies involved sabotage on behalf of Sai Baba and his officials. This Murali Krishna is a member of the Venkatagiri family – extremely well-known early devotees of Sathya Sai Baba having always had the closest of connections with Sai Baba and not least to Sai officials and, of course, college teachers and other VIPs in Puttaparthi. Murali Krishna Yachendra developed his lies further and further, using all kinds of deceits to try to cover up his mistakes. In order to find out as much about him as possible, he was kept in the belief that he was being taken seriously. In this he was drawn out and the depth of his cunning and deceit showed itself up to the full.
Here is the evidence:-1) The emails and actions based on them were very many, and a summary of it all (here below) is from the book with full information on the sabotage campaign: ‘Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra’ by Basava Premanand (available for US$10.- with airmal fee included – from 11/7 Chettipalayam Road, Podnadur – 641 023. Tamilnadu, India)
2) One can see a scan of the first contacts made by Murali Krishna with the Sai Petition here
3) A further selection of excerpts from the hundreds of e-mails he sent to Premanand and Pittard are found here
When M.K. Yachendra became so confused under questioning that he could no longer keep up the many pretences he began to present himself on Sai baba bulletin boards as a full-blown believer in Sai Baba once again. Thereby he admitted he had been lying.
He was aided and abetted by a person who has for years been contantly been representing the interests of Sai Baba and the International Sai Organization on the Internet, including sabotage attempts, stalking and character assassination of all outspoken critics. Though informed by Premanand about Murali Krishna Yachendra’s massive campaign of lies, this obssesive denier of all documented evidence still defends and promotes Murali Krishna Yachedra as a genuine, honest person!
