Sai officials’ secret collusion over the death of Sathya Sai Baba

Mr Nagi Reddy alleged that before admitting Baba to the hospital, trust members subjected him to cruelty by not feeding him properly. He said that under the freedom of information act he had filed a request to the trust to provide him details about Sai Baba’s hospital admission register, case sheet, and details of treatment administered to him. He said that he would go to court if the information was not provided to him.

The Sathya Sai Central Trust and Hospital authorities have covered up all that happened during the illness and death of Sathya Sai Baba. My informant in Indian has summarized the Telugu statement by Mr. Nagi Reddy as follows:
Nagi Reddy has evidently found the power of these people too entrenched to confront further, since nothing had been heard of his request. Still, it should not be forgotten that the Sai Trust and Hospital authorities actually discussed and made public their thoughts on whether or not to bury him alive, using as a pretext some barbaric and ancient Hindu religious pretext! (See here). Why did they need to consider that? Because he was still alive and ‘refused to die’, so to speak, or because he was already dead and they wanted to deny the fact to preserve a sheen of divinity (while conveniently getting rid of him by live burial)? Alternatively they were faced with an unprecedented situation with the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) – it was announced that SSB was unconscious (much of the time) and probably fully so later on. He may or may not have been brain dead, while his body was still ticking over with all the artificial support systems (heart stimulation, breathing, dialysis and so on). To “disconnect an avatar” from life support has no precedents in Indian scripture, of course. There can be no doubt that the timing of the death was decided by those who were in control (we do not even know who that was, or who took the decision). All the complex funeral arrangements at Prashanthi Nilayam were ready for the day (including timing of flight bookings and official visits by dignitaries, the massing of security forced and huge police presence etc.) Dr. Safaya made clear that he resigned his post because he had somehow been unduly pressured, but why and how the public is not allowed to know! Add to all this the lies about the coffin-casket, which was the same one that they had ordered nearly a month before his death was announced. These people are totally unaccountable to anyone devotees or the public and their credibility has been destroyed in the eyes of any decent people! They are a clandestine gang of deceivers and corrupted persons.
