Sai Baba Is God Says Top George Bush Doctor
Posted by Barry Pittard on March 6, 2007
Dr. Kanwaljeet ‘Sunny’ Anand, of Arkansas, USA, is a world authority on Pediatrics. However, credentials in Medicine may not exclude one from making absurd statements. He has declared that Sathya Sai Baba is God, even though this guru has made entirely absurd statements about history and science – not least in Dr. Anand’s own area of expertise.
These contributions by Kanwaljeet ‘Sunny’ Anand were presented at Sai Baba’s 80th birthday celebrations on November 23, 2005 at Puttaparthi, South India. He stated that Sathya Sai Baba, as the incarnation of God, has been foretold in several major world Scriptures, a view for which he furnishes no sanction from Christian, Islamic, Hindu or Sikh scholars:
“The Advent of this Divine Form is referenced in the Book of Revelations of the Bible, in the Holy Koran, in the Vedas and Jaimini Mahabharatha, in the Guru Granth Sahib, and in all of the major religious texts of the world.”
At the same occasion, Kanwaljeet ‘Sunny’ Anand has:
Accepted as all-knowing a guru who makes contradictory and ignorant claims about the period when life enters the human fetus. Proof positive can be seen in scans, placed parallel, from two issues of Sai Baba’s official organ distributed worldwide Sanathana Sarathi. of September 1996 and April 1997. These expose Sai Baba’s contradictory and scientifically baseless claims about when life enters the human fetus:
In the breathtaking space of a few minutes, ‘Sunny’ Anand:
- Stated without the slightest evidence that Sathya Sai Baba has 100 million devotees
- Extolled this guru as God Almighty come to save the entire world
- Claimed – based on provenances utterly worthless to scholars anywhere – that key sacred scriptures of various Faiths have prophesied the avatarhood (incarnate Godhood) of Sathya Sai Baba.
Does Dr Anand’s desertion of intellectual respect for proper canons of scholarship disqualify him as a good doctor? Naturally, only his peers can judge of his ability to function as a competent doctor. Clearly they have judged him as among the best in the world. Rather, it is Dr Anand’s exceptionally baseless statements on non-medical issues that need critical assessment.
He well knows that Sai Baba and his Sathya Sai Organization make great use of medical doctors as figures lending authority to his movement. Dr ‘Sunny’ Anand cannot be other than aware of this, but has allowed his eminent position to be used by the Puttaparthi propaganda machine. Had he spoken on some medical topic he could have occupied firm ground. The spurious use of medical doctors to lend a patina of respectability and ‘authority’ is especially rife in India. Sai Baba and his managers squeeze the medical orange until the pips pop. Absurdly large numbers of his top leaders are medicos, and there is almost total dominance by males. Australian scholar Brian Steel discusses the Kanwaljeet Sunny Anand case and the fallacy of celebrity endorsement:
