Sathya Sai Organization double morals

Posted by robertpriddy on March 11, 2011

Dr.Michael Goldstein above (as caught out by the BBC) and his Indian counterpart in cover-up of all facts about murders and sexual abuses, Dr. G. Venkataraman (below) -

The Sathya Sai Organization and other Sai Baba institutions have always been ready to denounce impostors and deceivers (in circulars or in their public journal Sanathana Sarathi). Sathya Sai Baba insists that his followers support truth, decency, speaking softly and sweetly, but his authorities have nothing to say about their biggest and most unethical defender on the Internet, Gerald Moreno. They observe Moreno attacking dissidents and critics of Sai Baba in the most unspiritual and libelous manner without a single word of comment. Were they to dissociate themselves from him in public or denounce his methods even once, they would pull the ground from beneath him, so one cannot but conclude that in the main the leaders have no trouble with what they know to be his unjustified and untruthful representations of former devotees. Thus, their silence amounts to consent and the endorsement of not taking issue with this major proponent of their own agenda.

Knowing what a clandestine and secretive power clique runs the authoritarian International Sathya Sai Organization, with the devious Dr. Michael Goldstein and Dr. G. Venkataraman at its head, they are satisfied to be defended through ad hominem attacks, character assassination attempts and diverse other underhand methods used by their primary defender. The same applies to Sathya Sai Baba himself – for with a few words to the leaders of his organization or in public he could denounce Moreno, who ceaselessly, with ongoing cooperation from both his prominent and rank-and-file members, breaks his directives for spiritual behaviour.

Dr. M. Goldstein stated on the BBC documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ that Sathya Sai Baba had told him not to answer any criticisms, for it would drag them into the gutter. Because Goldstein was bound religiously to follow every hint of this Lord and Master, so one way to hit back at critics was clearly either through minions. This was done through disinformation and false claims by Dr. G. Venkatarman (Head of Radio Sai, and active Member of the Prashanthi Council) who was only to willing to avoid the real issues and distract attention from the many crimes involved. Venkarataman’s mendacious response to the JuST Group’s documented criticisms was a private reaction he claimed – and not made on behalf of the Prashanthi Council itself, not of the Sathya Sai Organization either. What duplicity from Sathya Sai Baba’s official propagator and chief propagandist!

In all this silent support for Moreno, Sathya Sai Baba and his officials faced the dilemma: either to denounce the critics’ claims themselves or denounce the nefarious behaviour of their staunch defender (Moreno) because of the counter-productive effect and its impact on both true devotees and the wider public. Moreno’s shallow and calumnious diatribes and their frequent predominance over other pro-Sai Baba postings on search engine results strongly reinforce the fact that there has been very widespread criticism of Sathya Sai Baba, especially since the massive sexual abuse revelations in 1999 and the exposure of the murders in his bedroom on BBC World TV and the Internet. Meanwhile, not one pro-Sai Baba website dares to make a single link to the extensive Sai Baba critical websites for fear of the facts coming forth to their followers. Sai Baba himself has warned devotees not to view the discussions on the Internet.

Pointed denials of association to mislead the public:

Moreno made a point of denying – at the foot of many of his pages – any association with the Sathya Sai Organization from the time of the first attacks on critics and alleging victims of Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuse (which he also actually accepted for some years during his all-round defense of Sai Baba). His activity still undermines the credibility of their claim that Sai Baba is not at the centre of a cult. There is considerable circumstantial evidence of central US Sathya Sai officials collaborating with Moreno behind the scenes, especially in providing him with information about the Alaya Rahm court case before the results were known even to most critics and in providing him with deposition documents which were never made public by the court and have proved unobtainable even by several email requests by a international coordinator, and by (via telephone) a US academic and also a personal visit by another US citizen to the Clerk of Court in Orange County, California. Moreno could not prove that he had obtained the documents from the court, as he asserted, for he could produce no receipt.

Some semi-official Sai websites with a fairly large remit [which are of course also deeply engaged in a propaganda and disinformation campaign – especially saibabaofindia.com] do link to his web pages, helping his Google rankings. The Sathya Sai Organization could stop this easily, but evidently some among them – such as Prashanthi Council leaders Michael Goldstein and G. Venkataraman – are privately interested in seeing critics of Sai Baba maligned as much as possible. Their conscious choice to avoid Moreno in public shows that they nevertheless are aware what a yet more huge liability to them it would be to endorse such a person who defies all the advice of Sathya Sai Baba always to speak softly, criticise oneself instead of others and such rules. The wider world of thinking people can see straight away that Moreno’s whole aggressive character attack strategy and underhand ‘dirty tricks’ are a striking manifestation of a religious personality cult in action, often exceeding the antics of scientology.

Moreno wrote that he had heard many wonderful stories about Sai Baba from someone called ‘Robert’ (at a time when there were few who knew much about SB in the USA). Of those named Robert to whom might apply from that early date there are Robert Baskin, Robert Bozzani, and Robert Bruce – all Sai VIPs and long-standing members of the Sathya Sai Organization. Robert Basin has acted as the lawyer for the Sai Organization. Moreno claimed he had no contact with Baskin, citing the irrelevant fact that Baskin lives in California while he lives in New Mexico, a long way apart. But Baskin has held talks in many places in the Sai organization, and both have been frequently to Sai Baba ashrams, where meetings between US visitors are almost inevitable (in groups etc.) not to mention e-mail, the phone etc.!

There is no publicised official support for Moreno or any mention of him or links to his defamatory web pages by the Sathya Sai Organization or other Sai institutions, indicating that they cannot afford association with such a twister of the truth). More significantly, not a single national or other prominent newspaper or media outlet referred to Gerald Moreno’s massive output. He has railed against journalists (e.g. Vishal Arora) and academic researchers into the Sathya Sai Baba who have failed to mention him or in any way support or reference his materials (such as Tulasi Shrinivas and others). Yet more disappointing for Moreno, no doubt, is that there are no postings on the Internet of any serious kind that support him in any way, except for a few by fanatics and equally dishonest and antagonistic persons (eg. Lisa de Witt being a very active user of bad language and utterly false low-life claims about critics).

Murders in ‘The Abode of Supreme Peace’ [Prashanthi Nilayam] -2

Posted by robertpriddy on October 19, 2010

The aftermath of executions: Sai Baba's sofa, knives of the murdered followers, potassium cyanide bottle etc.

The aftermath of executions: Sai Baba's sofa, knives of the murdered followers, potassium cyanide bottle etc.

Should the utterly despicable cold-blooded executions of the four devotees in Sathya Sai Baba’s apartment be forgotten because of the despicable cover-up by the Government of India, the graphic description needs is being circulated once again.- After having intruded into the Prashanthi Nilayam temple and survived a knife battle in which two of the Baba´s servitors were killed – four devotees were trapped in the apartment and, hours later, were mowed down in a rain of bullets by police. If there is any justice or concern for what is right in this world, this unsolved major murder case will continue increasingly to haunt Indian authorities and the probity of its rulers in the last two decades for many long years to come.

No form of justice or redress of any kind was allowed for any of the bereaved or those affected by Sathya Sai Baba’s staff purges of ashramites whose lives had been dedicated to service under the figurehead of Sathya Sai Baba. Due to Sathya Sai Baba’s power over his top Indian government followers, it is unsafe for anyone within India to speak out or make a public record of what they know about this. Therefore, some foreign ex-followers are filling that gap assiduously! Here is the continuing account of what the damning photo evidence indicates, as made by former world-famous India Sceptic, Basava Premanand:-

The top left picture is the interview room of Sai Baba next to his bed room where Sai Baba meets the members of his trust and other functionaries [[Note: as of 1993]]: There are two wooden poles, one stained with blood, a pillow with blood stain, a wall clock, a table lamp and other articles on the sofa. But no blood on the sofa. The very fact that these materials are on the sofa set proves some one had placed them on the sofa. This proves that there were others in Sai Baba residence. On the left side of the sofa near the teapoy there is rope and a stick. In front of the sofa on the left side is a hose and a T-shaped metal instrument. On the right side in front of the sofa, part of a red and blue box or book is seen. The teapoy on the left side of the sofa is full with materials – flask, idol of Ramakrishna. etc.,

The interview room of Sai Baba next to his bedroom is where Sai Baba meets the members of his trust and other functionaries: There are two wooden poles, one stained with blood, a pillow with blood stain, a wall clock, a table lamp and other articles on the sofa. But no blood on the sofa. The very fact that these materials are on the sofa set proves some one had placed them on the sofa. This proves that there were others in Sai Baba residence. On the left side of the sofa near the teapoy there is rope and a stick.

The teapoy on the left side of the sofa is full with materials – flask, idol of Ramakrishna. etc.,

Pic.6 shows seven knives one as long as 4 feet. lt is not known how these could be hidden in their body by the four alleged assailants when blood stains are seen especially on the 4 foot  sword and the metal instrument. They were not found near the bodies of the four assailants.
As per the interview given by Retired Jus. Balakrishna Erady, Supreme Court, the 4 alleged assailants being the watchmen of the residence for the night had carried their bedding and the knives etc. might have been hidden in the bedding. But their bedding is not found inside the residence as per the observations of the mandal executive magistrate:

Pic.8 is of the 2 bottles containing potassium cyanide and ether and the rest are the defused bomb parts with wire etc. The police have not explained how alter a thorough search of the premises on 7th, they discovered the bombs on 8.6.1993. Also because of the visit of president’s family and home minister the whole complex would have been searched by the intelligence department as per the protocol. When the bombs were not found then, it proves beyond doubt that the bombs were planted after the murders to make the murder case strong.

Beatings, torture and killings by Police in India

Posted by robertpriddy on September 25, 2010

Some graphic proofs of the bestiality of Indian police - a widespread state of affairsPolice bestiality, legal and official corruption in India today

India’s government has spent billions of dollars (some – incl. the BBC – report  it may eventually amount to 50 billion) on the Commonwealth Games – wealth that should instead have been for the common people instead in this land of the greatest human calamities. The Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and his minions (himself a devout follower – no less – of the self-proclaimed omnipotent God Incarnate Sathya Sai Baba), have constantly ignored calls to clean up the filth prevailing in the competitors’ quarters, and now are trying to save the games. Britain has decided to send its sportspeople there – despite the lawlessness, unsafe infrastructure, prevalent contagions and the constant mindless beating up in public by police of innocents (not excluding foreigners), not least because they do not want to lost valuable business contracts and alienate the Indian ‘brown sahibs’ further. Commonwealth countries should rather tell India to clean up their disastrously brutal police force, their corrupt and elitist judiciary and the sheer deceit practised by some Indian gurus they actually protect to the full (i.e. Sai Baba). (Funnily, however, gullible devotees of Sai Baba have actually enthused over him having privately prophesied the Olympics in 2020 will be held in India and also around his ashram in Andhra Pradesh!)

Police in India are guilty of widespread human rights violations, including beatings, torture and killings, a new report alleges Human Rights Watch spent a year investigating claims of human rights violations to compile the 118-page report, entitled “Broken System: Dysfunction, Abuse and Impunity in the Indian Police”.

Rathore – a police chief who brutally raped a 14-year old girl and escaped justice, whereupon she killed herself – was nearly buried by the media and government. However, the gradually awakening wider Indian public rose in anger and have made this a landmark case in bringing some accountability to police chiefs in India. This cover-up is but one of hundreds of similar reported cases of unpunished police killings and massive brutality in the past decade. The most serious police executions and cover-up, which Indian governments continue to cover-up. was the police executions in cold blood of four devotees in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom apartment. The cover-up for this constantly self-proclaimed God Incarnate and world saviour is to protect the reputation of India’s five Prime Ministers, four Presidents, the judiciary and many top people in India others who had already worshipped this widely accused pedophile, sex abuser and proven ignoramus plus murder accomplice for decades before he was exposed.

India bashing?

As Barry Pittard has written: “
“When critics point out the mass of contradictions and the vast corruptions in India, conscienceless attackers such as the Sathya Sai Baba man, Gerald Moreno of New Mexico, USA, allied with some of Sai Baba’s notable followers, who stay in the background, they are said to be “India bashing”. What the former devotee and other critics point out has long been stated by many courageous and truthful Indian citizens down many decades. It may be hoped that these forces of decency and efficiency in India will be aided by the glaring world spotlight which has all too suddenly swung on the many corrupt and befuddled Indian leaders because she is hosting the Commonwealth Games”.

Gerald Moreno, allied with some of his low-minded followers who all try to stay in the background, tries to portray myself and Pittard  as India bashers and haters, he does so because he wants to generate hate against us among Indians. However, we are on the side of the great mass of Indians and against corrupt leadership, uncaring politicians, extortionate moguls, law-breaking and brutal police forces who ignore the vast sufferings of so many.

Moreno’ speaks of IndiFour victims of police executions in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom, 1993a on his original vishvarupa.com website in 2003 of India as follows:  “For the past 14 years I have travelled many times to India. I’m captivated by India. (Much to the bewilderment of friends and family)” and he has never made a single critical observation about the vast poverty, the general unconcern with the poor and suffering, the host of embezzling and self-serving politicians and mafias and the depths of depravity whereby children are sold into prostitution in the millions and tiny babies are maimed in horrendous ways to turn them into beggars. His only concern is to bash and harass in every possible way every dissident of his admired gurus, Sathya Sai Baba, convicted murderer and rapist Swami Premananda, Ammachi the heavy-duty hugging matron, the long-expired Ramana Maharshi and such others.

Email Correspondence with ARORA, VISHAL

Posted by robertpriddy on September 23, 2010

As part of his researches, Vishal Arora contacted both Sathya Sai Baba proponents and dissidents. As his article shows with all clarity, he was unable to penetrate the wall of silence and propaganda that surrounds all Sathya Sai Baba and all his officials and ashram people. Gerald Moreno went straight into an offensive to try to pressure Arora into acting as his mouthpiece, which failed dismally, of course. As is his wont, Moreno speculated over why I was not on-line for two weeks in the month or so prior to Arora’s article’s, implying that I was in India meeting him. Far from it, I was travelling in the Western hemisphere only.

In fact, Moreno is extremely frustrated by the fact that no serious journalist or researcher will take any notice of what he writes, not as soon as they read his diatribes and falsifications. He was rejected by journalists in USA and one in Norway (at Aftenposten, who contacted me after an e-mail exchange with him which gave her the right picture well enough. She thought he was childish! Moreno wrote back to her that he was “very disappointed”!). He was up in arms over Tulasi Srinivas, who mentioned –  sometimes inaccurately and with much censorship of our evidence – the researches of Brian Steel, Barry Pittard and myself… but gave Moreno’s conspiracies the cold shoulder altogether. He has also been given the cold shoulder by my friend and colleague, Erlendur Haraldsson (in psychological and para-psychological matters), who simply mailed back to the mischievous Moreno how we are old friends. Everything I wrote about Haraldsson on my web pages is true (my wife can attest to the content of many conversations about Sai Baba’s egomania etc. he and I had). Of course, I have the proof of my various claims about his opinions in Haraldsson’s own e-mails to me, of which I have at least 50.

Thus, Vishal Arora was no doubt drawn more and more into a sceptical attitude regarding Sathya Sai Baba by Moreno’s phoney friendly advances, though he did not communicate much with the sceptics. He e-mailed me on the advice of the dissident Serguei Badaev, former Sathya Sai Organization President in Moscow, quoting him as follows:-
“We are continually being persecuted by various Sai Baba supporters, not least by Murali Krishna Yachendra… related to a most prominent Sai Baba follower in India. I have, for example, received a public death threat not so long ago too.” To this I replied:-

From: rero@getmail.no
To: vishalarora_in@hotmail.com
Subject: Re: About Sai Baba
Date: Mon, 10 May 2010 15:41:19 +0200

Dear Mr. Vishal Arora,
Thank you for contacting me!
I was the national leader of the Sathya Sai Centre in Oslo and contact person for the national Organization for most of 18 years in Norway until 2000.
As to the death threat I received, it was sent as a comment to my wordpress blog and can be viewed below the blog at https://robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/2164/
After receiving that threat, I reported it to the Oslo Police. Due to lack of resources and the fact that the threat was made from the USA, the police decided they could not pursue the matter. WordPress provide the IP and e-mail address given. This was as follows:-

sathya88 –   mohan88hg@gmail.com –  137.131.206.70   –  2008/11/26 at 1:08 am
Robert Priddy,
You are son of a Bastard for sure I can tell you that. Sai Baba is god and his devotees love to see him on the golden chariot. If even swamy doesnot want golden things we want him to see majestically. If you come in front of me I will kill you man mohan

I tracked down the geo location to the USA. It is in San Diego, California. I replied to the e-mail with the warning that it was reported to the police. If you search Google for the e0-mail in question you now find several entries, including the phone number of mohan (he runs San Diego boats and his phone no. is 858 587 4829 !! I have not contacted him. (Since I did not know this, perhaps I should report him to his local police… I have not considered that before.)
See http://www.google.com/search?q=%22mohan88hg%40gmail.com%22&hl=en&lr=&filter=0
He also has a profile at the following web address: http://www.spoke.com/profiles/mohan88hg@gmail.com
If you consider it o.k. to contact him, please inform me what result you may get.
In case you do not know of my long involvement etc. with Sathya Sai Baba and why I eventually joined the the exposure of him, please visit my main website at http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/ There I have documented a massive amount of material concerning him, which I guarantee is completely truthful and true as far as my knowledge reaches.

Murali Krishna Yachendra (former teacher at Sathya Sai College and an insider at Prashanthi Nilayam) is the grandson of the Raja of Venkatagiri and his case is an interesting one. The entire matter is documented in a book published by Skeptic Book Club (Basava Premanand) entitled “Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra” in which the countless e-mail exchanges between him and expose activists is printed. An extremely revealing attempt to confound activists…but it was foiled. Premanand lodged a complaint to the police (see attached scan) and the District Collector – without result!! See a resume of the matter and document scans etc. at
http://www.saibabaexpose.com/Yachendra/Murali_Krishna_Yachendra.htm

Scan of mail sent by Basava Premanand to Nellore Police reporting death threat from Mohan88

As to the question of persecution by Sai Baba activists, there is a catalogue of such things. Firstly the victims of sex abuse and their families have been persecuted through their social networks, employment etc.(according to many highly confidential e-mails I have received – I cannot release this information since numerous murders in India have been recorded – many by B. Premanand, but – of course – the execution in cold blood of four devotees in June 1993. The subsequent CBI investigation was hindered then finally quashed from top governmental level just before the result was pending! This can be verified on-line from numerous reports – not least in the BBC Interview with V.P.B. Nair – Former Home Secretary of Andhra Pradesh State at http://www.exbaba.com/comments_on/_the_secret_swami/nair.htm

Then there is a massive internet campaign, much of it by Sai admirer Gerald Joe Moreno of Las Cruces, New Mexico, but also by numerous others… including hundreds of bulletin board libels, lies and personal attacks etc. on over a hundred persons who have spoken out about the sex abuses and similar instances of criminal events connected to Sathya Sai Baba and/or his institutions.

Please feel free to pose any questions you may have… and you are free to print anything which I have stated here, also anything on my main website or my main blog at robertpriddy.wordpress.com.

Thanking you for your interest,
Sincerely
Robert Priddy

Arora’s replied to me only briefly. He did not use any of my materials as such, though his opinions are very much in line with my own, it turned out. He asked how he might contact the Rahms, Lisa Tice and Hari Sampath, on which I informed him.
The result I later saw was as follows:-

Vishal Arora reports on the Rahm family, Hari Sampath etc.

As to alleged “Screen-cap fraud”: Gerald Moreno accuses others who are innocent of fraud – who have never changed a single word of what has been recorded from the internet, of that which he is guilty himself! He has nothing whatever substantive to charge me with, so he descends to hair-splitting matters about difference in colour and contrast, arrangement of information etc. as being ‘fraudulent’. His one aim is to have as many accusations on-line as possible, which seem at first glance to surfers to be something. On closer inspection he is seen to be a fanatical obsessive hate promoter. Further, he has frequently left out very significant words in his ‘quotations’ of Basava Premanand and in some of his otherwise also heavily-biased and selective presentations of what I have written.

Vishal Arora Indian journalist exposes Sathya Sai Baba 

Posted by robertpriddy on September 20, 2010

‘The Caravan’ Magazine on Sathya Sai Baba by independent investigative journalist Vishal Arora states:-

Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murders summarized by Vishal Arora, independent Indian journalist

As Arora found out, there is a most powerful and widely extended cadre of Sathya Sai Baba worshippers in power in India, most of whom having been outspoken as worshipping devotees for many years. Prestige, favours, money and, above all, the fear or ridicule for having been so thoroughly taken in by a widely accused pedophile and accomplice to murder of his own devotees is a powerful factor in their continued fear (and blocking) of investigations of any kind into Sathya Sai Baba. Vishal Arora writes:-
There is no lack of powerful, high-profile people cutting across political parties and spheres, professing their faith in Sai Baba.
Justice PN Bhagwati, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India in 1985 and 1986, calls him “divinity incarnate” in Baba is God in Human Form: Experiences of Divinity of Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. In the same book, Shivraj Vishwanath Patil, currently Governor of Punjab and former Union Home Minister, says, “He is the knowledge; He is the wisdom personified.” Shankarrao Bhavrao Chavan, former Chief Minister of Maharashtra for two terms and former Union Home and Finance Minister, says he has “no hesitation in saying, whatever position and status I have is purely because of Bhagwan’s blessings.”
And further:-
Famous Indian laywer Kamini Jaiswal spoke to Vishal Arora about the blank refusal of the Supreme Court Petition against Sathya Sai Baba.

Sathya Sai Baba Drinking Water Project

Posted by robertpriddy on September 3, 2010

Basava Premanand exposed the controlling influence of Sathya Sai Baba and his minions in many State affairs – also putting Sai Baba beyond the law of the land:-

“Let us discuss about the Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Project which was inaugurated by Ex-Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and Indian President S.D. Sharma, Newspapers vied with each other to tom-tom the benevolence and greatness of Satya Sai Baba.” (see short video clip of the inauguration)

“TIMES OF INDIA Dated 3.12.95 came with the following news under the heading “Basu Waves Tax for Sai Trust.” The left government has granted sales tax exemption to the tune of Rs.60 lakhs to an organisation run by Satya Sai Baba. The government decision was communicated to the Sales Tax Commissioner on November 11 by a joint secretary in the department of finance for issuing the official notification.” ‘ Informed sources revealed that Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust’s unsigned petition for exemption of central sales tax leviable on purchases made in West Bengal for a drinking water supply project in Andhra Pradesh was placed before Chief Minister Jyoti Basu in October by Padma Khastigir, leader of the Congress opposition in Calcutta Municipal Corporation and a Former Judge of Calcutta High Court. The official added that the Trust has been granted sales tax exemption by 3 other state governments. The Trust’s petition to Mn Basu stated that it was unable to bear the financial burden of paying sales tax and pleaded for exemption on humanitarian grounds. An official in the CM’s secretariat said that the concession “although unprecedented in the states has been made in the peopIe’s interest…”

“With all the fan fare in news papers, television and radio all over the world the people believed the magnanimity of Satya Sai Baba. As the Prime Minister and the President had inaugurated and the water gushed out from a silver tap to a silver vessel and the audience saw the water gushing out they all believed that the parched throats of the people of Anantapur District have been quenched by giving them pure water. -No one enquired as to what really happened. Immediately the water flowed through the pipes, the pipes burst at the starting points of the water supply, and the parched earth with the dried blood of the six watchmen of Sai Baba, got satisfied after quenching its thirst. When the president knew of the real fact after his inauguration, he fell sick, President Shankar Dayal Sharma was slightly indisposed on Wednesday night, according to member of the presidential entourage reported UNI. Dr. Sharma, who was here for the 70°‘ birthday celebrations of Sri Satya Sai Baba, has suffered from a bout of pain following ‘inflammation of his knee’ and could not attend a scheduled function here”

“Though billions of cm water was wasted and big pools were formed near the pipe lines no newspaper, or the TV or the Radio had the courage to publish about the fraud. In April only one newspaper in Telugu “Vaartha” published a series of articles for 9 days on the Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Supply Project where Sai Baba’s pipe did not deliver water to the parched people of Anantapur. lmmediately after getting the information l rushed to Anantapur and on 21” April and 23” April made a video him. According to Times of lndia dt.3.12.1995 the judge Padma Khastagir as a self-confessed Sai`Baba acolyte for 25 years, frequently visiting the godman’s ashram. Her four-storey house in Southend Park is named Sai Sudha after the controversial godman. Such a judge to lile an unsigned petition for sales tax exemption and the Chief Minister to exempt the trust from paying sales tax is gross negligence and proves that Sai Baba is above Indian Laws. This act of the judge is a shame to the chair she had occupied as a judge so also the Chief Minister of West Bengal ordering exemption on the basis that Sathya Sai Trust was unable to bear the financial burden of paying sales tax and pleaded exemption on “humanitarian grounds” while it was the richest trust in the world. As law is said to be same for every one, I am wondering if the state and central government would exempt the people who are below the poverty line from all taxes?”  [1995]

OTHER SOURCES ON THE RAYALASEEMA WATER PROJECT
Ramana Baba, also known as Muz Murray, reported to me:- Investigators however, maintain that these claims have another side to them. It was found that the authorities had previously refused permission for a water pipe solely for the private use of the ashram, unless other villages on the way were also supplied, as many in the region were without water. Permission to lay 2000 km of pipeline to the ashram was only granted after accepting this proviso. But even though some of the villages of the Rayalaseema region through which the pipeline runs are now getting good water, others say that half the pipelines are blocked or badly fitted and they are still not getting a supply.

SATHYA SAI BABA AND THE WATER PROJECTS – FULLER FACTS COVERED-UP
The water projects in Rayalaseema, Andhra Pradesh, Medak and Mahabubnagar, and the canal repair for Chennai financed from donations made by followers of Sathya Sai Baba (and subsidised by government) were named after Sathya Sai Baba. They are no doubt admirable for those who suffer water shortages and now receive more than before. Much was achieved, while much went wrong, and no one connected with Sathya Sai Baba is allowed to mention anything negative about these projects, which are widely promoted as ‘Divine Miracles’. This article is therefore simply to help correct some of this totally one-sided propaganda. I repeat, this is not to denigrate the good intentions of those who donated (including myself!) nor whatever positive results have been achieved. Rather, it is simply to counterbalance the mendacious aspects of Sathya Sai baba projects and what most of the Indian media have become afraid to publish concerning anything critical of what government-protected Sathya Sai Baba says or does and so contributes to many public misconceptions.

Dictator Idi Amin – Sai Baba’s warm recollections

Posted by robertpriddy on August 26, 2010

In a discourse he held on Christmas Day (25/12/2006) Sathya Sai Baba recounted his visit to East Africa – including Uganda – in 1968. During this he spoke most affirmatively about the brutal despot and Dictator Idi Amin (and this on Christmas Day of all days of the year!). Idi Amin was a self-admitted murderer who had at least five wives and 23 children (plus hundreds of ‘lady friends’), who fed enemies to crocodiles, reportedly kept some of his victims in his deep freezer, and – according to persistent reports of his staff who escaped – even tasted human flesh!
Sai Baba’s praises of Amin were eagerly promoted on the worldwide broadcasts of propagandistic Radio Sai and on the Sai Baba official website by his main propagandist, Dr. G. Venkataraman (also former contributor to India’s nuclear bomb ‘himsa technology’), who thus also evidently accepts that Idi Amin was a Sai-devotee of some stature! His lack of judgement matches that of his ailing Lord God, the evidently failing Sai Baba. That was too much even from a myth-deluded and truth-challenged ‘scientist’ who avoids all important criticisms to his cover-up and has never dared tell anything he knows of Sai Baba’s well-known private doings and the many reliable allegations about them. Perhaps he admires Idi Amin for his lead in such censorship and cover-up? Here is what he wrote about Sai Baba’s fond reminiscences in his 2006 Xmas Day discourse:-

Excerpt from official Sathya Sai propaganda pages on the web
COMMENT: Note how the besotted writer (no doubt Dr. G. Venkataraman, who decides on all publicity matters anyhow) of the above claims that not only people but the animals (wild) of Africa are “devoted to Swami”. Sathya Sai Baba has encouraged this codswallop in line with his original claim to be the creator of the Universe. “They raised their trunks in veneration and paid obeisance to Swami” we are told. But how did the writer know what the elephants were thinking? Well, the animals would have to worship their creator, wouldn’t they? It is laughable in the extreme.

The enthusiasm about the “moment of moments” when Sai Baba “related how Mr. Idi Amin was very fond of him” – and how Sai Baba gave him double daily doses of darsan!” Amin’s devotion “melted the heart of Swami” (I ask you – or was it mutual flattery?) – yes, this most horrific of ghastly rapists, torturers, killers, the sweet-hearted Idi Amin had to be given the blessing of another day’s stay from Swami! Sai gave apples to the crocodiles which were too”captivated by the divine darsan” even to eat the apples. Probably crocs to not like or eat apples – but now, Amin knew their tastes better than that. He gave them human flesh!
Sai Baba propounded that there is no feeling of hatred in these animal (which is reasonable as they are predators naturally) but – and this is another ‘moment of moments’ in Sathya Sai Baba’s down-putting of his fellow-men and -women, therefore “The noble qualities in these animals are not even to be found in human being”! All this is sheer comedy, but it has a very sinister message if you stop to think about it

Swami’s Christmas Discourse 2006

“Some years ago, when I went on a tour to East Africa, several Africans came to Me for darshan. Each one of them prayed, “Swami! Please spend some time with us”. There were a few hundred children among them. All of them had their vision glued to My form. You know the then President of Uganda, Mr. Idi Amin. He was a military officer. He was young and very energetic then. He was tall and hefty. He had a number of wives. He was very fond of Swami. He used to have the darshan of Swami both in the morning and evening. I was very short before that giant. The sight of Me beside him was like the view of a deer by the side of a camel. People were surprised at his love and devotion towards Swami. He was well educated and was the President of his country, Uganda. He was known for his stern nature. Such a person shed tears when I started on My return journey. He told Me, “Swami! I have never shed tears since my birth. Today, I am very sad and have a feeling of separation because Swami is leaving us.” He covered his face with a handkerchief so that others may not notice his feelings. His hands were very strong. He held My hands firmly, expressing thanks for My visit. He also prostrated before Me. He held My feet so tightly that it became difficult for Me later to climb the ladder for boarding the aeroplane. At the time of My departure, he pleaded with Me “Swami, I will surely come to have Your darshan shortly. Otherwise, You please visit our country again. I cannot bear the separation from You.”
The situation in Uganda then was such that he could not leave the country. During My stay in Uganda, he planned to host a dinner for Me in his house. He therefore came to the house of Dr. Patel to personally enquire about the arrangements to be made in this regard. He collected all information as to how to organise the dinner, what should be the menu, who are to be invited as guests, etc. He arranged for brand new utensils for cooking various dishes. He also arranged for new tumblers for the guests. Finally, when I visited his palace for the dinner, all his wives stood in rows on either side and greeted Me with veneration. He introduced them to Me, one by one. I stayed in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The last day was Guru Purnima, an important occasion for Sai devotees. I had earlier promised to return to Bombay by that date. But, the Africans did not allow Me. They fell at My feet and prayed: “Bhagawan! Please spend this holy day with us”, with tears in their eyes. In answer to their prayers I stayed back to spend Guru Purnima with them.”

“On that day, they wished to take photos with Me. I told them that they might silently pray in their hearts so that their request would be fulfilled. To their joy, each one of them found a photo with Swami standing beside them. The devotion of Africans is indescribable. Even now, I feel very happy when I think of their devotion. My next visit was to the country of Tanzania. There also, everyone who came to have My darshan felt very happy. Ladies and gents came in large numbers to welcome Me, wearing their traditional dresses. They danced in ecstasy on seeing Me. On the day of departure, just before the plane took off, all of them stood in front of the aircraft and pleaded with Me, “Swami! You should not go from here. You must be here only.” How can I accede to their request? I had to leave. The pilots and other officers in the airport counselled them saying, “You should not obstruct Swami’s aircraft like this. This is not good.” They then moved away. I was observing all this from the window of the aircraft. Finally, when the plane started to take off, many of them nearly fainted in grief. That scene was fresh in My memory till I reached Bombay.”

“During that trip, I visited three countries – Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. They are all neighbouring countries. I was very happy and felt deeply touched at the devotion of African people. During My return journey, the aircraft was filled to the brim with the articles gifted by the African devotees. What are those gifts any way? They brought all sorts of articles like dinner sets and tea sets in gold colour. They are still with Me. We are making use of them while hosting high dignitaries like Prime Ministers and Governors.”

Rumours about Sai Baba’s intervention to delay expulsion of Asians from Uganda rebutted.
Idi Amin acting on God\s orders… his guru Sai Baba?

Sathya Sai Baba, Dr. V. Venkataraman and Idi Amin apparently make good bedfellows, according to the arm appreciation of Amin by Sai Baba in a Christmas Day discourse, as reported eagerly by Venkataraman. This was indicated by a photographic image made of the happy threesome, which was not a fake, but a construction to bring home the relationship, as was made clear when it was posted. See this image and the controversy it cause at The last King of Scotland – God’s orders and Sai Baba The Spirit of Christmas

Supreme Court of India cover-up: petition ad Sathya Sai Baba rejected

Posted by robertpriddy on August 13, 2010

Evidence and documentary proof of failed petition to the Supreme Court of India. The attempt to prosecute Sathya Sai Baba a decade ago was rejected in a most corrupt manner by a Sai Baba worshipping judiciary:-

From: “Hari Sampath”
Date: 8 May 2001 17:05:17 GMT+02:00
To: advaitha@bigpond.com, shahgols@yahoo.com, baileydf@aol.com, dtice@accessone.com, conny@email.com, saiexpose@visto.com (AND MANY MORE – addresses and names suppressed)
Subject: Supreme court refuses….
Reply-To: harisampath@visto.com
Dear All,

In what has been described by all observers as a “shocking” decision, the Supreme court refused to even hear the petition yesterday.
The Judge who heard it last week in the preliminary , Justice Agarwal (who said “these things have been going on for decades” ) was scheduled to be hearing the petition. In the last minute, he was suddenly transferred to another case by the Chief justice Anand, a Sai Baba folower, who appointed his right hand man, a corrupt judge called Lahoti to hear the case.

As soon as Kamini Jaiswal and Prashant Kumar started opening the case, this judge started posing all sorts of absolutely stupid questions, with NO LEGAL BASIS.

Here is what happened as recounted to me by Prashant Kumar.

************************************************

Kamini Jaiswal : May I proceed with the case introduction ?

Judge Lahoti : Wait….there is a problem with the affidavit of the petitioner, I want it clarified.

Kamini : There is absolutely nothing wrong, the affidavit is perfectly fine.

Judge Lahoti : Why is the affidavit dated April 5th 2001 and you are coming up only now with the petition , in May ?

Kamini : The affidavit was signed by the petitioner and had to be mailed, along with his petition. The petition had to be mailed to him first so that he could sign it.

Judge Lahoti : How can that take more than a month ? This is an old affidavit , then.

Kamini : If you notice the address of the petitioner, he is in the United States, and mail takes a few days to reach there and then back here to India. We filed the petition more than 10 days back, citing reasons for urgent mention, and according to the court order, the case was posted for today. That is why we are here now.

Judge Lahoti : Well…it seems that the petitioner is in USA,it is my mistake. Anyway there are other reasons I want to clarify this petition. Why are you approaching the Supreme court ? We don’t want to hear this petition, please go to the High court in Andhra Pradesh.

Kamini : The reasons are clearly mentioned in the petition, and we are filing the petition under Article 32 of the constitution, which gives us the right to come to the Supreme court.

Judge Patnaik (second judge) : Why was the petition not filed in the Andhra High court under Article 226 ? Go to the High court.

Kamini : That is what I am coming to, Article 32 and Article 226, both grant the same rights in the Supreme court and High court respectively…..either option can be pursued. If I may proceed with my argument, I will explain why…

Judge Lahoti : No… go to the High court…

Kamini : Can I at least have a hearing ?

Judge Patnaik : ok.. go on…

(Kamini begins her arguments, and starts detailing all the media reports about Sai Baba, the statements of sexual molestation, etc….. when she reaches the point about UNESCO…. she is interrupted)

Judge Patnaik : This court doesn’t want to hear this petition, go to the Andhra High court.

Kamini : But I have not even come to the point explaining why we choose to file under Article 32 in Supreme court…

Judge Lahoti : You can do the same under Article 226 in Andhra Court…

Kamini : But that exactly is what I was going to say, about why I cannot do that there, can I please continue ?

Judge Patnaik : Why are you here, why don’t you go to Andhra ?

Kamini : It is clearly stated in the petition, and I am coming to that…

Judge Lahoti : what grounds ?

Kamini : The respondent Sai Baba has a 60,000 million rupee empire in Andhra Pradesh, with total control over the entire state government… how can we go there ? There are also lot of other political influences …

Judge Patnaik : No, we are not going to allow this petition here, go to the Andhra High court..

Kamini : But if this was the issue, we could have been informed 10 days back, we were asked to come today…

Judge Patnaik : We are going to dismiss the petition.

Kamini : On what grounds ?

Judge Lahoti : We do not have to cite any reason for dismissing it..

Kamini : Can you at least give a ruling “with liberty to go to Andhra High court” ?

Judge Patnaik : No I am not going to do that.

Kamini : But that is what you were saying all along , if you want us to go to the Andhra High court, and if that is the reason you are not hearing this petition, can you please put it in writing ? We can then take it to the Andhra High court .

Judge Patnaik : No , I just asked you why you are here, and said that you should be in the Andhra High court. I am not going to include that in the ruling.

Kamini : Can we at least withdraw the petition from this court, and approach the Andhra High court ?

Judge Lahoti : you could approach the Andhra High court if you want to, but we are going to call this petition “dismissed”, and not allow you to withdraw it.

Judge Patnaik : Petition dismissed, no reasons are given by this court. That is the ruling .

*************************************

As we can clearly see, this “hearing” was rigged and blatantly violating all legal norms.

The whole proceeding took less than 10 min… with the judges constantly interrupting Kamini Jaiswal…. and repeatedly raising irrelevant questions, without giving her a chance to explain the legal reasons why she was representing in the supreme court.

That judge Lahoti is notorious as a “Chief justice Anand’s hit man”, who had been cleverly appointed at the last minute, replacing Justice Barucha and Justice Agarwal, who heard it last week.

It is very very obvious why they were so eager to “dismiss” the petition, without a complete hearing, and also not give a ruling that we could approach Andhra High court, although they stated it orally.

They want us to go to Andhra High court, and everybody knows what will happen there. There will not even be a formality of a hearing in Andhra.

The scan that proves definitively that Sathya Sai Baba was protected by the Supreme Court of India and could not be tried, let alone convicted.

_____________________________

Comment:
Worse yet, shortly after their rejection of the Petition lodged by Hari Sampath, the Supreme Court of India deleted all public documentation of it having been made. The British Ambassador to India attempted to get confirmation of the rejection by the Supreme Court but there was no record of it! Nonetheless, a copy of the formal rejection paper was preserved and a scan of that attested document is here:-

At that time, the Governor of Andhra Pradesh had once been none less than the private driver for Sathya Sai Baba ! One can imagine the chances of a petition to the AP High Court. In a mail from Basava Premanand to the Danish film director Øjvind Kyrø, who produced the Danish National TV Documentary ‘Seduced’ (by Sai Baba), he stated:

—– Original Message —– From: <geedeemedi@vsnl.net>
To: <kyroe@city.dk>
Sent: Tuesday, April 05, 2005 2:06 PM
Subject: re
“Regarding murders in 6.6.1993 I went up to the Supreme Court and though the apex court ordered the police to take action against the accused as per the investigation by CB-CID the case was closed by the Andhra Government. Now that the government is changed and the present Chief Minister and Governor of Andhra Pradesh are fans of mine. We have put in a petition to get it opened and the Governor has agreed to meet me.”

However, despite sustained efforts to re-open the case, Premanand’s petition was totally disregarded right up until his death last year. This shows the pull that Sathya Sai Baba and his minions had in the corridors of power in India, especially the top of the Indian Government (which they still have).

Senior Ex-CID officer J.V. Ram on Sai sex scandals – part 2

V.J. Ram (aka Janakiram) was a senior Indian CID officer who was awarded the President’s Police Medal, having solved many difficult criminal cases. His book ‘The Godmen of India’ is extremely revealing of certain Indian gurus, especially as regards the long history of formally unsolved criminal incidents connected to Sathya Sai Baba and his coterie.

Sathya Sai Baba’s power

Posted by robertpriddy on July 20, 2010

Sai Baba has gathered a culture around himself and his ashrams, a highly protective ‘charmed circle’ of servitors, officials and privileged devotees, within which his word is gospel. No one who remains within its social and mental confines ever ventures to doubt anything he says, for he is to be regarded as totally infallible, even if one does not understand what he means or why he says it.

These people willingly act as a ring of bulwarks against anyone who wishes to get near to question, challenge or investigate the simplest matter.  The Indian government has provided him with armed guards, in addition to the undercover security force he is known to employ at considerable expense. This full-blown personality cult has the full support of the Indian government and many authorities in India, including most of the press, which has gradually been warned off or bought off by his minions. Not only the police, but also the CID and CBI were unable even to question him about murders in his bedroom apartment due to protection by the Home and Prime Ministers at the time.., persons whose prestige had long been invested in their being long-term followers and worshippers of Sathya Sai Baba. ‘The Statesman’ reported”:-   “A 1993 incident in which police shot dead four of his followers and his attendants murdered two was hushed up with intervention from the top the then home minister, SB Chavan. The Baba, who was present when the four were shot dead, was never questioned.” (see http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/15/The%20Statesman%20-%201993%20murders.htm)

In short, Sathya Sai Baba ruled the roost totally for decades in his independent, ‘township’ or fiefdom under his full legal and physical control. Though his word is still gospel to the blind believers, he no longer has the ability to control and manipulate, which powers have increasingly been usurped by those who run things while he is a partially senile invalid. His claim to be the Godhead of all Deities who is totally all-knowing – if remotely true – would mean that he could have stopped the murders and the police cold-blooded executions within his fiefdom. However, in his discourse some time afterward, he virtually justified them, and further told how he knew what would befall his attendants in advance, warning them (which he claimed they did not heed). The world will draw its own conclusions from this together with all the published facts… despite the massive campaign to confuse the issue and cover-up to an extent probably unparalleled in any democracy today.


How Sathya Sai Baba can avoid being accountable to anyone for anything

Sai Baba is virtually never held to account to his face for anything he says. Most people who qualify to get near him already have too much respect, awe or out-and-our fear to question anything he says or does in any but the most positive or else superficially questioning manner. This is not to say that there have been absolutely no exceptions. There are doubtless those who only pretend subservience, while being self-willed and devious. Most officials in his various institutions who are often in his presence have the ‘healthy respect’ for him, his will and his word that a schoolboy has for an unpredictably punishing headmaster. Now, is this not what one would expect of God too? In all major religions, God is not accountable for any kind of error or wrong doing. As long as one really believes that Sathya Sai is God Almighty himself on two feet, or something near to that, one thereby surrenders all chance of understanding anything about him. Add to this the indisputable fact that Sai Baba does not WANT anyone to be able to understand him… almost everything he says and does demonstrates this! He also is ever telling people in private interviews to keep things secret, which is a near paranoid precaution for controlling what is generally known about him.

Anything a follower does not understand about Sathya Sai Baba – especially anything untoward – is explained by any of a set of fall-back positions, such as: “We human beings cannot understand Swami’s Divine actions”, “The ways of God are inscrutable”, “It is Swami’s Divine Play”. “Swami is testing us to see if our faith in Him is sound” and other such excuses. This goes for everything he says which is recognisably untrue, vague, ambiguous, at odds with his own teachings, self-contradictory, improbable, nasty, disgusting or outright criminal. This is what makes the Sathya Sai ashrams and main movement an unmistakable cult run by a secretive and clandestine clique – many delude by others merely cynical.

Of course, one cannot understand what he says or why if one has given up the attempt to discover the truth of it beforehand, and this ‘giving up’ is to ‘surrender to his Divine will’. It implies that one never may question anything he says or does, without exception! Not even in the privacy of one’s thoughts! Sathya Sai Baba either ignores or fobs off anything remotely like a penetrating question that may still be put to him by some daring person who has slipped through the net into an interview but who is not yet fully obedient to the Divine Will.

Considerable investigation is required to remove or dispel mere appearances, the more so when tight secrecy and cover-up is a constant factor. No persons are able to observe Sathya Sai Baba’s behaviour all the time, which makes it all the harder  it is very hard to get to the true state of affairs in many matters. Sai Baba exhorts all to be unquestioning believers in him and had instituted throughout his institutions, organization and ashrams a blinkered self-programming and self-denigrating mentality to maintain the emotional dependence of his devotees. After some years under his aegis, the task is almost insuperable for persons without considerable personality resources to fall back upon. The figurative ‘smashing of the mirror’ of one’s own preconceptions and even a dear part of one’s self-image (i.e. that one could be deceived so long and so much) is simply too demanding for those who have devoted their lives to delusions.

The very close servitor – the editor of Baba’s journal for 20 years – V.K. Narasimhan told me that Sai Baba said to him one day: “One thing I cannot do is to make a person choose to do good.” That is part of the reason why Narasimhan – a pragmatist – did not reject or leave Sathya Sai Baba when the executions of the four intruding devotees were organised by Sathya Sai Baba ‘s younger brother, Janakiramiah (since deceased)! It seemed to Narasimhan – who had often told me that he was most certainly not omnipotent – that Baba could not even influence his own younger brother! This viewpoint was supposed to absolve Sathya Sai Baba from responsibility as accomplice to the murders, neither being able to dictate the actions of those Sai Central Trust members and ashram officials, nor those of his younger brother Janaki Ramiah, who blackmailed the police into shooting down the four young men – trapped and virtually unarmed intruders – in cold blood, one by one in a huge hail of bullets. Sathya Sai Baba’s power is worldly, arising from his protection by all those followers from his security servitors right up to Prime Minister, Presidents, Supreme and High Court judges and many others in India.

‘The Pioneer’ report on the Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murder case

Posted by robertpriddy on July 7, 2010

The Pioneer, New Delhi 10-6-1993


Comment: One sees here again the most doubtful role of the Puttaparthi police in this whole episode, which is why the investigation was soon taken entirely out of their hands and given to the CBI, which worked on the case effectively, Before the report was due, the two main officers conducting the investigation were suddenly posted away somewhere else… one can easily figure the reason. Because not log after that, the entire official investigation was quashed (by Home Minister S.B. Chavan with the endorsement of Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, both of whom visited Sathya Sai Baba regularly, especially after the murders! For back-up documentation of all this, see:-

The Statesman confirmed the cover-up of murders in Sai Baba’s bedroom

Posted by robertpriddy on July 7, 2010

After its first report on the murders in Sai Baba’s bedroom, when the CBI investigation had been abruptly blocked and closed down, this respected Indian newspaper, The Statesman, of 130-plus years standing wrote (Delhi November 12) “Equally controversial has been the wiry-haired Sai Baba who has the country’s who’s who lining up for his darshan at Prashanti Nilayam at Andhra. A 1993 incident in which police shot dead four of his followers and his attendants murdered two was hushed up with intervention from the top the then home minister, SB Chavan. The Baba, who was present when the four were shot dead, was never questioned.”

‘Robert Priddy Not Exposed’ blog

Posted by robertpriddy on July 5, 2010

A blogsite defending  me against the massive harassment of Gerald Joe Moreno has been posted on the Internet – click here. It contains details information about Gerald Moreno’s malicious campaign against me on boards, groups, web pages and blogs, all because I am a critics of the guru he so admires and defends, Sathya Sai Baba. I hardly responded at all to four years of his almost daily attacks on me – all contrived and full of distortions and many proven lies about me and my internet activities. He has never met me but has since 2004 studied in the greatest detail everything he can find out about me, has twisted every bit he can somehow distort to ridiculous lengths and reported it in a way that is not only full of inaccuracies and misquotations. Above all he is enraged that I eventually pointed out the obvious fat from his own on-line account of his private interview with Sathya Sai Baba that he was ‘groomed’ for sex and physically interfered with.. a fact about which he is in massive and – to all appearances pathological – denial.

Here one can see how the front-line defense of the Sathya Sai Organization on the Internet is conducted – i.e. in a way that totally contradicts the entire attitude of any spiritual person or organization and disregarding with contumely all of the valid advice of Sathya Sai Baba about how to behave towards others. It shows the cultist nature of these attackers and the set-up they defend.  Gerald Moreno is a shrinking violet in that he makes hug efforts to remove a single image of him from the Internet. In short, he dare not show his face in good company in case he is recognised (See here and at https://robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2009/04/04/sathyasaibaba-in-the-shadows/)!

Moreno’s re-use of extreme libel by ‘Dr.’ Leo Rebello of Mumbai

Moreno claims that I was threatened with a million dollar lawsuit (by a half-crazed Indian called Rebello) despite Moreno knowing that this is NOT true! As I have informed on several occasions previously, I was never threatened, not even by mail – let alone from any lawyer. Moreno cannot prove his statement with any genuine documentation, and he knows his statement to be false! Proving I am right, Moreno even admitted to Kazlev (see below) that it was angeltowns.com who were threatened. Further, Rebello claims he wrote to a server and threatened them (i.e.not me, which he surely realised was impossible for him to succeed in). Rebello never even forwarded that threat to me, nor did the server at angeltowns.com contact me then. Thereafter, I contacted angeltowns but they would not confirm that they found me to have defamed anyone. Since it was a free (unpaid) website for which I had not paid anything, they chose to remove the material as they had no (financial) reason to defend me fro the threat of a lawsuit against them (even though Rebello could never have achieved anything in any court considering the materials he spammed many people with). I was then naive about those services and should have posted my materials on a dedicated, paid-for website. Moreno knew about these things and took advantage of the fact to try to libel me. However, I decided to let sleeping dogs lie so did not repost the materials then, which I easily can do in full – up-dated and extended exposing him (Rebello) fully, not least with his own words and many bogus claims. and with impunity any time if Rebello causes me the least trouble on-line again.

Gerald Moreno has further tried to defame me by posting a very selective excerpt of Rebello’s filth in a way which he thinks makes me look bad, which suffices to show the kind of person Moreno is backing and how he has an agenda of hate and character assassination! I will post just a brief sample of Rebello’s his 50-plus mails sent to all and sundry for those who have the stomach to view them. Interested can mail me for these items. If there should be any reaction against me on-line from Rebello himself, I shall re-post my entire up-dated web pages for all to see.

Likewise, no critic of Sathya Sai Baba has ever been sued, nor even threatened in any credible legal way (except once by an incompetent Indian posing as a lawyer whose bluff was called immediately by no reply), yet Moreno claims to know better, but he has no documentation of any such thing because none exists. He ignores the facts and post whatever he believes remaining Sai devotees will believe, knowing that in their blind faith they will most likely accept almost anything against critics as being true. Moreno will take any half-truth and turn it into a full lie, and then claim that it is the critics (whether former devotees or reputable media) who are engaged in falsification!

M. Alan Kazlev has defended me against Moreno – a person he originally befriended, but found to be a major liar and libeler. Kazlev wrote:-

“You claim “Robert Priddy is relating more scurrilous fabrications and gutter untruths against me under the guise of anonymity.” But where is the proof of these assertions? You wrote “Priddy’s dirty and filthy websites”. Your uses of such language are imho just more examples of slander (and more shadow projection) on your part.

To cite another example, you posted the slander of Dr. Leo Rebello against Priddy on your website. That is an implicit endorsement of Rebello’s statements and is I understand slanderous by law.

Your allegations about Priddy on porn sites are unverified, and hence defamatory and slanderous. How do we know that someone (I wonder who?) has used his website title in signing up for those sites?” (See here)

[Moreno]
“Regarding Leo Rebello:

Rebello’s slander is his own. Priddy’s defamatory website against Rebello was removed for its defamatory content by AngelTowns.com (are you unaware of this fact?).” (See STATEMENT here)

(Alan Kazlev) “I admit i haven’t followed all these details the way you do. However I did email Robert regarding this and other points of you reply, and he informed me that this is further vicious slander against him, whatever else you claim. There is no independent proof that the Priddy website about Rebello was removed because it was defamatory. If I recall, it contained screen-shots of disgusting documented slanders against Robert by Rebello in his e-mails, with Robert’s comments and analysis of his denials of the existence of AIDS and SARS and Rebello’s claims to greatness and fame. (NOTE Priddy now informs me that the claim that the website was defamatory is wholly unsubstantiated by the web server! No such reason for closure was given Click here for more information)”

NB! I retain a major dossier of fully documented web pages on Dr.Leo Rebello’s public efforts to defame Sai Baba dissidents in most disgusting ways, and I can document his many other statements showing his bogus claims and activities. Any bona fide persons who are interested in this matter can e-mail me or contact me on the comment page (their mails or comment entries will NOT be posted there and strict confidentiality will be observed).
