Dr. Bhatia reconfirmed his sex with Sai Baba and worse

Prabhakar Kamath has written an interesting article on how abused Sai Baba followers suffer from ‘the Stockholm syndrome’  Here is an excerpt:-

Here is a classic example of how Sai Baba controlled the mind and behavior of a highly educated doctor by the name of Naresh Bhatia as reported by Vishal Arora in Caravan magazine dated June 6th, 2010:

I read his account in the Daily Telegraph and several Internet forums; I wanted to meet the now 59-year-old Dr Bhatia. I went to see him in his house in Noida. The tall, fair man received me very gently and offered me a seat on a veranda next to his living room. There was a six-foot tall poster of Sai Baba on one of the walls. I wondered why he still had a picture of him.

I told him I wanted to know about his relationship with Sai Baba and whether or not the reports on the Internet were true. “What did you find in Puttaparthi?” he asked. I told him many of his former devotees wouldn’t make accusations against Sai Baba. I also complained that there seemed to be no real consequences for Sai Baba. “No action will be taken against him. Nothing will happen to him,” remarked Dr Bhatia. “I will suggest that you do not write the article.” I thought it was his pessimism.

“But why do you think nothing will happen to him?” I asked. “He is God,” he replied. “Is what I have read on the Internet about you untrue?” I asked. “Everything is true,” he said, “but so what?” The bell rang and he went to the door and came back with his colleague. I thought it would be difficult to have a frank conversation now. But Dr Bhatia carried on.

What Dr. Naresh Bhatia, a long time favourite of Sathya Sai Baba, told Mick Brown of the Daily Telegraph was reported as follows:-

“Among those people named in The Findings is Dr D Bhatia, the former head of the blood bank at the Sathya Sai Super Speciality Hospital, who, it is claimed, had a longstanding sexual relationship with Sai Baba. Bhatia resigned from his post at the hospital in December 1999 and is now an administrator at a hospital in New Delhi.
Contacted by phone, Bhatia said that he had become a devotee of Sai Baba in 1971, at the age of 20, and that he had had sexual relations with Sai Baba for a total of ’15 or 16 years’. In that time, he said, he was also aware that Sai Baba had relations with ‘many, many’ students from the college and school, and with devotees from overseas.
Bhatia said he had never questioned Sai Baba over his conduct, or Baba’s explanation that it was ‘God’s activity’. ‘Devotion,’ said Bhatia, ‘doesn’t need any justification. In my philosophy of life, everything good and everything bad belongs to God. That is my belief, and that is why whatever he does, does not affect me in that way.’ Was he saying that he still believed Sai Baba is God? ‘Yes.'”

Dr. Bhatia wrote a book about his experiences of Sai Baba entitled “Dreams and realities face to face with God” (which reflects his belief fully). After he was threatened with physical harm and forced to leave Prashanthi Nilayam, Bhatia’s book was immediately taken off sale at the Sathya Sai Baba Book & Publications Trust, and it was withdrawn and all existing copies were remaindered by the publisher, Jack Scher – since deceased – another egocentric millionaire follower of Sai Baba who had so to speak ‘bought into’ a verandah place by setting up a publishing co. for Sai books in the US called ‘Leela Press’.  V.K.Narasimhan was instructed to publish the disclaimer about Dr. Bhatia in Sanathana Sarathi.

  1. Yet again, a prime example of the double bind devotees face if they do not resolve the devilish dilemma of dependency as described above, Robert. Thanks for the extra background info concerning Dr. Bhatia. For some added perspective on this matter from a fellow psychotherapist, see also my blog God’s Own Stockholm Syndrome of March 23 2012.

  2. Robert,
    I have looked at the BBC’s “Secret Swami” again and, in my experience, people do not lie about these kinds of experiences. Not a single person ever lied to me about abuses that may have occurred. So any kind of a statement that people may make that they wanted these things to happen is a delusion on their part. And, of course, now look at the situation that we have where there is massive child sexual abuse taking place and massive domestic violence also. I only hope the Indians wake up to the fact that people do not want to be fondled and molested by anybody, especially somebody like Sai Baba. I remain convinced that this is evil trying to take over the confidences of people so they can be easily exploited.
