Prashanthi vs. Muddenahalli – major court action underway
Posted by robertpriddy on December 1, 2015
In their battle for supremacy, the Prashanthi and Muddenahalli combatants are now involved in a lengthy court case against one another. These shenanigans are surely to be played out as ever by all the same old men that were part of the cover-up cult (no women!), but now on different sides. Their usual seriously unctuous ‘caster oil’ faces and moral put-downs of opponents are to help decide whether the Muddenahalli gang should render ill-gotten gains from the Sai Baba legacy to Prashanthi. Legal weapons are, however, totally contrary to what Sai Baba always ‘taught’, never to resort to court action but settle difficulties with mutual respect and love in the heart, criticising only oneself, never others (especially between ‘spiritual brothers’!). So much for these ‘followers’ of either branch of the schizophrenic cult. See the previous court document here
The court document (linked above) contains telling phrases. The plaintiff (Central Trust) uses phrases like “shocking and illegal acts of defendants” who ” used their illegal actions as bargaining tool ” and by these illegal actions “
“attempting to hijack the trust and take it out side the control of the Central Trust which is a reputed public charitable trust held in high esteem in the country and abroad” (comment: actually now only in limited areas of India and among a handful of remaining devotees abroad).
“The actions of Defendants in soliciting donations is completely against the teachings propounded by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba by enticing hapless donors of whom many are foreigners by claiming that Sri Narasimha Murthy and his protegé one Sri Madhusudan Naidu are able to communicate with the Divine Soul of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and obtain replies and responses to the questions and doubts of devotees.”
The intensity of the conflict does not come across properly in official statements, but on-line one can read quotes by Muddenahalli people saying the Trust threatened to “gun them down” (devotees who go publicly to Muddy though live in Parthi)! The ‘inhabited body’ of Madhu Sudan is even called ‘Frankenstein’ by some!
