Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

Exposing major deceits by guru Sathya Sai Baba in India, incl. murders cover-up & widely alleged sexual abuse

Basava Premanand – major whistle-blower on Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on August 17, 2012

The earliest sceptic and most prolific writer to expose Sathya Sai Baba was Basava Premanand. The Telegraph, Calcutta, Sunday, November 21, 2004 wrote of him:- “Premanand, who’s been honoured by the government with its highest award for the promotion of scientific values among the public, is among activists spearheading a campaign against religious and spiritual heads engaged in illegal and unsavoury activities.’ He was head of the Indian Rationalist Society, convener of the Indian CSICOP, and the Editor of Indian Skeptic. He was involved with Sathya Sai Baba’s organization early on and donated a large tract of land (90 acres) he had inherited from his parents, for the purpose of building a college. This land was illegally transferred from the trust run by a Gandhian congressman to the Sathya Sai Organization (Kerala). This awakened him to the corruption around Sai Baba. What he eventually discovered – murders, disappearances, sexual abuses and more – was so hugely contradictory to all the claims by Sai Baba about himself and his institutions that all devotees reacted against Premanand as an ill-informed fantasist. I admit that I – then a follower and the leading office-bearer in Norway – was scathing about his reports. The tables have turned completely however, as this blog site alone shows… That Premanand could make no headway with the law in Southern India, despite legal petitions and reports to police, was entirely due to the control fo police and judges that Sathya Sai Baba had by then achieved, and which is well documented (see one small example) and now acknowledged by most upright people in India and even the popular media there. Here is an appreciation of Premanand by a secular and rationalist Indian site saved which deserves to be widely known:-
