Until recently, public discussion of child sexual abuse had been taboo in India, even though it is a well-documented scourge. A government-sponsored survey in 2007, based on interviews with 12,500 children in 13 states, reported serious and widespread sexual abuse.

“Children are sexually abused by relatives at home, by people in their neighbourhoods, at school, and in residential facilities for orphans and other at-risk children,” it said.
Public anger shows there is a demand for “answers, accountability, and that the authorities have yet to learn their lessons about to how to deliver effective justice on time”, said Soumya Bhaumik, from the Centre of Social Research in New Delhi.

Self-Deception As a Coping Mechanism among Victims of the Sai Baba Cult

According to Dr-Prabhakar Kamath, Sai Baba satisfied his sexual appetite by abusing innocent children with complete disregard to consequences to their welfare. He wrote: “Sexual abuse serves another purpose for Sai Baba: Dominating these children and converting them into his lifelong devotees and henchmen. In a sense, the sexual abuse is ritual castration by means of which he is telling them literally, “From now onwards I have you boys by the balls.” In a highly shame-oriented society such as India, victims feel a great deal of shame to admit that they are sex abuse victims, and they are fearful of exposing such a powerful and revered person. This is further made difficult because of social pressure from victim’s fearful well-wishers; fear of corrupt police who do not hesitate to torture or murder accusers in cold blood; distrust of incompetent prosecutors, and lack of faith in the judiciary incapable of separating state and religion.
Almost all these children grow up bodily but not mentally, and they become Sai Baba’s lifelong followers who meekly submit to his demands. Their total submission to Sai Baba is rooted in self-deception.

Down-on-their-knees daily dose of darshan  Sai Baba reinforces their slavish mentality by means of gifts materialized by magic, rewards, public praise, bribes and intimidation. Sai Baba becomes the central figure in their lives, and they become almost totally incapable of critical thinking when it comes to their relationship with him as exemplified by Dr. Naresh Bhatia in the Caravan article by Mr. Arora. Fear of Sai Baba dominates their lives. Almost all their actions are dictated by what they think Sai Baba would want them to do.
