Sai Baba bomb claim demolishes his credibility
Posted by robertpriddy on December 7, 2008
Some days before the horrendous Mumbai terrorist attack, where grenades and bombs were used, Sathya Sai Baba pronounced “India will never have any such attacks” – but India did, and has had many such attacks (see below). This is another stupendous gaffe by the self-proclaimed Omniscient Omnipotent Creator of the Universe!
Sathya Sai Baba said in his Convocation address, 22-10-2008:-
“India is the only place where people are not worried about any attacks. In America , Germany and other countries, they cant eat well or sleep well. There is fear of bombs always in those countries. But in India, there is no fear of bombs. India will never have any such attacks.” Sathya Sai Baba 22-10-2008
The complete falsity of the claim that India is the “only place which is not worried about any attacks” is clear to everyone. There have been a long series of bomb attacks in India – the whole Air India building in Bombay was blown to bits with great loss of life and terrible consequences in the form of riots. The seven separate train bombings in Mumbai in July 2008 earlier this year had a devastating effect. That there is such fear of bombs in Germany or USA that its peoples “cant eat or sleep” is the height of absurdity! The fact is that most Indians can’t eat well due to massive poverty – at least 40 million live on under US$1.- per day.
Then the worst terrorist attack in the previous decade was in India’s financial heart of Bombay in 1993, while the death toll from the twin car bombings rose to 46, with 150 people wounded. The Air India building was destroyed. Later, the Air India airplane bombing of 1985 (Flight 182) killing 329 persons was the worst terrorist attack until 9/11.
Then we have the avoidable but ignored terrorist attack in Mumbai recently, which led to the forced resignation of Sathya Sai Baba’s worshipper and protector from legal accountability, Union Minister of Home Affairs, Shivraj Patil.
Here is the full documentation that Sathya Sai Baba did make the statement, though it was removed from all official and semi-official Sathya Sai disinformation websites:-
