of Sathya Sai Baba And his worldwide cult, the Sathya Sai Organization

James Redmond Shot Secret Footage Of Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on April 9, 2007

James Redmond (U.S.A.) is a professional film maker, and renowned throughout the Sai Baba devotee world as Sai Baba’s official videographer. His films have long been available for sale in countless Sai Baba centers around the world.

Sai Baba’s Official Videographer Shoots Frauds in Secret

For many years, James Redmond had unique rights to cover Sai Baba and his public events, and was sometimes permitted to film interviews. However, after satisfying himself first hand of the truth of accounts that Sai Baba has long been a serial sexual molester of boys and young men, James Redmond, informing a small number of former Sai Baba devotee activists – among whom were the late Glen Meloy of Palm Desert California and me – of what he was doing, continued to film Sai Baba. Now primed precisely to train his cameras on Sai Baba’s sleight-of-hand tricks when ostensibly materializing objects, Redmond obtained ever more damning footage.

After a few months, James Redmond sent out a letter to the large mailing list for his videos, mentioning convincing first-hand reports to him of Sai Baba’s sexual molestation of boys and young men and associated frauds as reasons for ceasing his attachment to Sai Baba.

Exposing Sai Baba. Like Mother Like Sons 

James Redmond’s professional filming colleagues Mike Ward and Jason Ward (Australians resident in Canada), who likewise had first-hand contact with alleging victims, also quitted. Judy Ward, Mother of the Ward brothers, was once prominent in Australian Sai Baba circles. She was an earlier voice raised, calling for the allegations to be properly investigated. As elsewhere thoughout the Sathya Sai Organization worldwide, there was and is, however, an absolute prohibition on all investigation of the allegations. This is yet another mark of its cult status, and yet it would represent itself to many governments, politicians and mainstream religious and civic institutions with whom it attempts to link, as a responsible organization. With extreme untruthfulness, core leaders tell rank-and-file members that the allegations come from a handful of disgruntled trouble-makers.

Those Australian young males Judy Ward believed to be Sai Baba victims with compelling testimonies given to her personally were (unlike other some other courageous Australians ready to share their abuse accounts with the The Age, ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), BBC and other major media) too afraid to go public with their accounts. Judy Ward wrote a report to the Australian Federal Police, the case number of which she supplied to me. Like other law enforcement agencies in various countries to which former devotees have given their testimony, the AFP said that the best they could do was inform the Indian police authorities but otherwise were powerless to act in cases of offenses committed in another country.

James Redmond’s videos made when he was a devotee contained material unwittingly caught on footage that has gone around the world. It is immensely damaging to Sai Baba’s credibility. See some examples, inescapable except for blinded devotees, from a Sai Baba discourse which, unlike those highly edited hard copy versions carefully edited with damage control in mind, have escaped into the wide outdoors, see my article (click on article title):  Huge Sai Baba Gaffes
