Asaram Bapu – it gets worse and worse

Asaram & son Narayan Sai – latest news
Asaram Bapu is in very deep water. As is par for the guru course in India, he flatly denies everything and – in his latest futile ploy – he tries to cast the blame on “foreign NGOs using the media to blame me” http://www.moneycontrol.com/ reports: …a foreign NGO was running a campaign to defame him and other religious leaders using money power and media. “(In exchange) of money being given by a foreign NGO, the media is spreading absurd stories (about spiritual leaders)”, Bapu told reporters here. Talking to reporters today, Bapu, however, denied having made those remarks and claimed that those involved in distorting his words were all associated with a foreign NGO which he did not name.
Having been unable after intensive searches to find a shred of evidence that nay foreign NGO is running such a campaign, though I wish there were some who did) I am wondering if he is referring to my blog and web sites, since I am certainly the most prominent on-line blogger exposing the sins and crimes of Sathya Sai Baba together with Asaram Bapu. Typically he did not name anyone, so his claims are sheer lies, and he would not wish to draw attention to my site in any way, that’s for sure, but he hopes, no doubt, that numerous Sai Baba worshippers in the judiciary and government may sympathise with him and get him a lenient treatment. This routine counter accusation has been used by leading officials of the Sathya Sai clique against those ex-devotee sites exposing Sai Baba, but all of them are run by unpaid individuals who aim to bring out the truth. Just to be exact, I have no connection whatever to any NGO and I finance all my sites out of my University pension.
