Sai Baba failed to lie his way to world superstardom

Posted by robertpriddy on August 1, 2013

Sai Baba failed to reach the world superstardom he claimed

Inordinate claims by Sai Baba of association with major world figures and his being behind momentous world events – all promoted by zealous followers – included some of his greatest boasts made in interviews (hence not officially approved, for obvious reasons) but which nevertheless were publicised on the world-wide web by zealous devotees and office-bearers.

Baba was determined to transform the world into his predicted Golden Age he would. He used both the most subtle and most blatant deceptions to attain to the world superstardom as he had proclaimed around his mid-life. Despite his attention-grabbing orange robe with his afro-frizz, his claims of fantastic – indeed incredible – miracles beyond anything any previous deity had even attempted and despite his constant self-promotion, he ended up very far from being as known or revered by the world as the saviour of mankind or the deity of all deities he professed himself to be.

Very notable too was the claim – made at an interview which was leaked to others by one of those present – that he helped Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon (by pressing him on the shoulder at a crucial moment)! Some even claimed Armstrong had an interview with Sai Baba, but the propaganda machine has never confirmed this, which would be a huge scoop for them. Nonetheless the story is still circulated by people who have picked it up as hearsay.

Sai Baba spoke to Neil Armstrong about his journey to the Moon. Sai asked Neil if he felt a hand on his shoulder as he climbed down the ladders to take his first step and put his foot down. Apparently, and I am not sure where this report came from, Neil agreed that he did feel a slight pressure on his shoulder. Sai told him ‘that was me’.

Baba even pretended that he would give ‘darshan’ of his face on the moon, causing a great furore so that thousands flocked to see this in Puttaparthi, only to find the sky was overcast with clouds. Despite that, many claimed they saw him on the moon.

Asked about Nelson Mandela in South Africa around the time of his release from prison, Sai Baba supposedly replied “Yes. I have a good man there”, according to a questioner in an interview. Mandela never once mentioned Sathya Sai Baba, as far as can be discovered.

Another major boast by leading office-bearers was that Sai Baba has predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall. He was reported by some evangelising interviewee AFTER the wall fell as having said ‘Communist come-me-next‘ without further comment whatever. That utterance was repeatedly confirmed by his some of his officials as the omni-prescience of Sai Baba. One devotee from East Germany claimed that she knew (through some vague interpretation of a claimed ‘leela’) that Sai Baba had caused the wall to fall. Many devotees were of the opinion that it was even all his doing, not least since he claimed to be the Divine Director of everything that happens! Though reports on this claim were largely deleted later (for reasons one may well guess).

His interpreter and very close follower, Professor Anil Kumar, confirmed this in an interview he gave to the Thailand media here where he stated that Sai Baba: “… said long ago that Muslim nations will go through turmoil and terrorism. We’ve seen that in Afghanistan and Iraq; he predicted the unification of Germany, and long, long ago he said the Soviet Union will collapse. Then, he also predicted the decline of the US economy and the dotcom bust.” The US economy declines and rises, like most economies. Since then it has had very considerable growth!

Reports of this kind on Sai Baba false propaganda pages on the Internet were removed, almost certainly by order of his minions so as to limit any criticism and counter-proof that would surely emerge internationally. But some web sites did not conform with th wishes of the Prashanthi censos. For example, that President Obama was positive towards Sai Baba was still blazoned across the web by the independent propaganda site saibabaofindia.com. It claimed, without any evidence to show for it, that ‘someone’ gave Obama a photo of Sai Baba , which he gracefully accepted. If he did, it would be an unpresidental act reject something he probably knew nothing about on the spot in the glare of the limelight. Read more about this here. The Obamas never mentioned, let alone endorsed, Sathya Sai Baba and no condolence was sent by them or US government when Sai Baba died and was buried in 2011.

Sai Baba enjoyed mixing among the powerful to the extent of associating with criminals like Idi Amin (see full documentation), (now former) Italian Prime Minister Bettino Craxi (convicted of 18 years in prison plus massive multi-million dollar fines and also the Mafia-involved Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti and not least many corrupt and criminal Indian figures. His followers, especially rich but otherwise unsuccessful and gullible persons, whom he selected as his favourites,  tried to promote him through similar deceptions.

Sai Baba failed to receive any international prize whatever, and, Despite efforts by successive nominations by Indian governments, received no Nobel Peace Prize. He boastfully intimated in a discourse that Dr. Michael Nobel, who later visited him, was one of those who decided who would get the Nobel Peace Prize. In his 18 November 2001 Discourse, he said, “They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize is coming here on the 22nd November. The ones who will show this to the whole world, TV people, are all coming here on the 22nd.”

As in his case, his Sathya Sai Organisations and Service projects failed to receive any known international awards, though a very minor Duke of Edinburgh award to a young person was made out to be awarded to him through falsification of the name by the recipient. This attempt was very soon scotched through reports in The Guardian and many other international newspapers, whereby Mr. Peter Westgarth, the executive officer of the D. of E. awards notified the Sathya Sai authorities that this was misrepresentation and demanded that they remove the report on this from their website. (They did so, but sneaked all their false propaganda back in later on another page!)

Vain attempts by Sai Baba propagandists to link Sai Baba to super-famous people

Constant efforts were made to induct, by whatever indirect means possible, the Dalai Lama to his cause. The Dalai Lama could not possibly endorse anyone who claimed to be God Creator of the Universe, though he did send his formal condolence when Sai Baba died. A far more compassionate person than Sai Baba, it is also likely that, living on sufferance in India where the ruling powers covered-up entirely for Sai Baba, the Dalai Lama did not want to risk the wrath of the powers that allow Tibetans a refuge there. See discussion here.

A minor London Indian news outlet (The Asian Voice) published a rebuttal of the BBC programme ‘The Secret Swami’, claiming among other things that “Some of his famous followers include John Lennon, actor Richard Gere and Bill Clinton. The ashram in Puttaparthi is said to be more visited than the Vatican in Rome, as millions flock to see, touch and be near Sai Baba.” (by journalist Payal Nair) Almost needless to say, John Lennon never even mentioned Sai Baba, though he had visited the ashram with Yoko Ono briefly (following George Harrison who was apparently enthused) and been ignored by him totally and left very soon in disgust. (The VIP lady, Indra Devi, who had been instructed to cosset him, addressed him in her ignorance as Mr. Lemon, which she tells in her hagiography about Sai Baba).

Both Bill and Hilary Clinton have been claimed as visitors, but neither were, though Hilary was in South India and was expected by some to visit him on a break of a journey from Madras to Bangalore. No word about Sai Baba is found anywhere by either of the Clintons. As to the claim of Sai Baba having more millions of visitors than the Vatican got, this preposterous claim was based on the massive long-term programme of disinformation by Sai Baba and his unquestioning spin doctors.

On a TV programme about Sai Baba (‘Divine Sin’) in Argentina, the International Chairman of the Sathya Sai World Organisation, Michael Goldstein read a letter in which Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Prime Minister of India, manifested being hurt by “the wild, reckless and concocted accusations made by certain vested interests and people against Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba … [who] is revered globally as an embodiment of love and selfless service to humanity.” Goldstein refused to give copies of the letter to the press. “We are still waiting for it to be subscribed by dignitaries of the whole world,” he said. They were to get signatures from the President of El Salvador and Guatemala, as well as Al Gore, former vice-president of the United States.

Goldstein also gave some news that left the sweating audience mute: On September 11, the devotees that worked at the Twin Towers and the Pentagon didn’t go to work that day or were late getting to their jobs. “Thanks to our beloved Bhagavan,” pontificated Goldstein, “all the New York and Washington devotees are safe.” Needless to say, the world never subscribed to this deluded talk, and Al Gore was too smart to connect himself in public to Sai Baba (it would have been the end of all his political aspirations, which he still nurtured at that time).

An early propagandist for Sai Baba, the impressionable Australian seeker Howard Murphet, who wrote the influential ‘Man of Miracles’, put out some highly imaginative ideas about Gorbachev where we see on what he bases what he says he knows:-
“In the years that followed we made many returns to the feet of our Sadguru, Sai Baba. One of these returns took place a few days after Gorbachev had appeared on the stage in Russia and that country had begun the governmental change that brought an end to the Cold War. On the day of our arrival, Swami, knowing no doubt that I had a question to ask him, called me into the interview room but he called several other men with me. Somehow I did not feel it was right to ask him this great question in front of others. So mentally I asked him very definitely if he had brought about the change of government in Russia. A mental question is as good as a verbal one to Swami. His eyes gave me the affirmative answer but all his lips said was, “Gorbachev is a good man.” I knew then that he had played some wonderful, powerful tune on the akhasic strings that had manoeuvred circumstance and brought about the great change.” (ital. above are mine – see also http://www.saibabaofindia.com/howard_murphet_lights_of_home.html).

It was also widely said in the movement that Raisa Gorbachev (Raisa Maximovna Titarenko) was a devotee, and some claimed she had visited Prashanthi Nilayam. However, her autobiography has not a single word about Sai Baba, who she would certainly have mentioned, at least, had she or her husband ever been any degree of followers. It was argued by Sai officials that the Gorbachevs subscribed to Sai Baba’s journal ‘Sanathana Sarathi‘

The above instances are far from attempts to gain fame, fortune and influence in the world by Sai Baba and his adherents.

Sathya Sai Baba’s political protégés and VIPs

Posted by robertpriddy on October 3, 2011

While still in the Sathya Sai Organization, we from Oslo were continually forced to notice that Sai Baba attracted not only good, sensible and pure persons, but also many of poor understanding and personal ambition (whether one called it ‘spiritual ambition’ or raw desire for special blessings, privilege and power). The people Sai Baba chose as his VIP’s (a group I avoided and never wanted to join, despite offers) were mostly either disagreeable or outright obnoxious self-important and pushy persons. Those persons have all remained followers, except those who have died.(I can firmly exclude Kasturi, Narasimhan and Mr. Hejmadi and a few other UK leaders from the bad VIP category!). When VIP’s behaviour and underhand dealings, embezzlement and worse were pointed out to him by some courageous person at an interview, he would say that they were ‘shades at the foot of the candle’ or that he kept them close because he wanted to control them… and further named them ‘VIPers’ (always raised a laugh, that!). The fact is that they had all shown that they would do his bidding whatever it was, would never question or doubt anything whatever… always hoping it would benefit themselves, no doubt. He had once nurtured his devotee like despot Idi Amin and also the criminal Italian President, Craxi, as well as saving the corrupt Indian PM Narasimha Rao from conviction and a long sentence… to name just some of the best known instances.


As India Today reported: “From Indira Gandhi to P.V. Narasimha Rao to A.B. Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh, almost every prime minister paid obeisance to Sai Baba. It has been a routine affair for Presidents of India – from Shankar Dayal Sharma to Abdul Kalam and Pratibha Patil – to visit Puttaparthi and spend time with him.”


All part of the more or less highly corrupt nest-feathering elite of India whose system is now being challenged by Anna Hazare and a large segment of India’s population! Against Mahatma Gandhi’s revered principle, Sathya Sai welcomes ‘blood money’ and even sat through in a public announcement of donors giving at least one crore at his 70th Birthday celebrations (such as Bhangarappa, a known corrupt Karnataka politician, who gave ten million rupees, and two famous Indian ‘liquor barons’, one of whom, Mr. Reddy, was murdered in Madras in 1996 only a week or so after a personal visit by Sai Baba accompanied by V.K. Narasimhan). His involvement with corrupt politicians is well documented – he reportedly saved Narasimha Rao from prison (Rao fled to his feet with thanks as soon as the verdict came). Tit-for-tat, N. Rao and A.B. Vajpayee protected him from prosecutions.

Altogether, a wide assortment of impostors and many very pushy and self-centered people of virtually all degrees sought Sai Baba in the hope of thriving under his banner. I shall report on some of the more successful charlatans in a blog tomorrow.

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

Sathya Sai Baba, dictator Idi Amin and G. Venkataraman

Posted by robertpriddy on January 9, 2009

In a discourse held on Christmas Day (2007) – of all days – Sathya Sai Baba chose to talk most affirmatively about the spirituality of his meetings with the despot and Dictator Idi Amin.

IDI AMIN WITH SAI BABA

His servile propagandist G. Venkataram – who ought to have known better – blithely overlooked Idi Amin was a known and self-confessed 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! See him proclaim himself on video here (3Mb Windows media) The Sathya Sai Organization spreads this ‘story’ as if it showed Sathya Sai Baba in a good light!

Sathya Sai Baba was Amin’s guru

Sai Baba’s servile propagandist G. Venkataram – who ought to have known better – blithely  overlooked Idi Amin was a known and self-confessed 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 heads in his deep freezer, and – according to persistent reports of his staff who escaped – even tasted human flesh!

International awards and Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on July 12, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba has never won any recognised international award. Yet it was made known that his ‘holy’ name was submitted by Vajpayee’s Indian Government for the Nobel Peace Prize (politically naive and doomed from the start!). Firstly, Sathya Sai Baba supports those who have been vastly increasing the militarism and the nuclear arsenal of India, not least by patronising the designer of atomic weapons (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles – President Kalam. Despite this, some inconsequential relative of Alfred Nobel (who thus bears the same surname) has pronounced that Sai Baba ought to get the Nobel Prize, which suggestion followers trumpeted to the firmament repeatedly. A pathetic attempt to draw attention to their self-proclaimed God Incarnate, who – despite all the billions of dollars in hand – has not made one inch of progress in getting international recognition from any serious institutions. UNESCO has – as is well known – washed its hands of him and has since it posted its advisory on him never accepted invitations to partake in his self-glorifying ‘conferences on education’.

Sathya Sai Baba as Nobel Peace Prize Candidate The human values and moral standing of anyone who is seriously considered for the Nobel Peace Prize must be impeccable. However, Sathya Sai Baba has been more widely accused of sexual abuses in public than any comparable figure, but the Indian Government, being led by devotees of Sai Baba, has successfully quashed all court petitions against him – so far! Moreover, he was present to the murder of six of his devotees within his private apartment in June, 1993 and the case has never been cleared up, no court proceedings and politically quashed Indian Central Bureau of Investigations case! The Nobel Committee has been fully apprised of these facts and – even were it to regard Sathya Sai Baba as having done anything to forward peace in the world other than to preach – the unresolved murders and uninvestigated sexual abuses would sink his candidature in advance. Then there was his warm appreciation of Dictator Idi Ami… just the ticket for a Nobel Peace Prize winner?

Satya Sai bogus representation by Sai officials

Satya Sai bogus representation by Sai officials

“Every man should show his sense of gratitude to society by rendering selfless service. It was for this purpose that the Seva Organization was started. But even here the Seva Organizarions are being used to promote one’s name and fame and not to render service for its own sake.” (Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. 30., p. 122).

World-wide publicity but no world-wide recognition The Sathya Sai Organisation worldwide, however, puts great effort into spreading the name and fame of Sathya Sai. Just witness the number of websites extolling him by official Sathya Sai Organisation centres! Virtually all group meetings are primarily for praising Sathya Sai through devotional singing (bhajans) and talking about him to newcomers, holding public meetings to spread his name and his word! The inevitable conclusion is that it is Sathya Sai baba above all others who uses the Sathya Sai Organisation to promote his name and fame!

How Sathya Sai Baba was deluded into thinking he would be able to get the Nobel Peace Prize!

Sathya Sai Baba claims that he, as Full Avatar of God, has sixteen special qualities. The above 16 questions make for a fitting comment on his ‘special qualities’.

Sathya Sai Baba went from Puttaparthi, India, to Kampala, Uganda, to meet Idi Amin in 1968 and gave him private interviews, later openly praising his devotion too!

Dr. G. Venkataraman propagandised about it all after Sai Baba enthused over Amin on Christmas Day, 2007 (of all days!). In a discourse held on Christmas Day (2007) – of all days – Sathya Sai Baba chose to talk most affirmatively about the spirituality of his meetings with the despot and Dictator Idi Amin.

Venkataram – who ought to have known better – blithely overlooked that Idi Amin was a most brutal dictator killer, a self-confessed 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! The Sathya Sai Organization spreads this ‘story’ as if it showed Sathya Sai Baba in a good light!

Sathya Sai Baba was Amin’s guru
In a discourse held on Christmas Day (2007) – of all days – Sathya Sai Baba chose to talk was most affirmatively about his meetings with the despot and Dictator Idi Amin. His servile propagandist G. Venkataram – who ought to have known better – blithely overlooked Idi Amin was a known and self-confessed 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 heads in his deep freezer, and – according to persistent reports of his staff who escaped – even tasted human flesh!

One story about Sai Baba and Idi Amin circulated in the Sai movement during the near two decades when I was the national leader for Norway in the Sathya Sai Organisation. This was that Sai Baba had gone to stay with a Mr. Patel (in Uganda) and not least so he could meet Idi Amin and tell him to postpone the extradition of Asians (mostly Indians) from Uganda for one year. It was said that those few Indians who were devoted heeded Sai Baba’s alleged warning to them and supposedly left without losing their possessions, others left later and lost most or all they had. However, this does not fit with the dates or any known facts at all. There is no reliable testimony to support the story… nor could I get any sensible, consistent answers from some Indians who were Sai followers whom I met in London in the 1980s who had fled Uganda.
Sathya Sai visited Kampala and met Amin in 1968, while he was head of the Ugandan Army and a well-known figure, but this was about three years before Amin came to power and got in a position to expel the Asians! Not long after he usurped power in a military coup, Amin suddenly announced that he would send all Asians (most of whom were Indians) packing from Uganda within 90 days, causing untold sufferings to many of them. He famously claimed that God had instructed him to do this in a dream! Sai devotees who dream frequently of Sai Baba have not commented on this, and one may guess why! The rumours about Sai Baba’s intervention and Amin’s postponement of the event is yet another of the many myths and stories which multiply and spread around Sai Baba [and very often by him in the privacy of interviews] by his blind believing followers.
