Who In India Will Stand out Against Abuses?

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 20, 2007

According to reports by Sanjoy Majumdar, BBC New Delhi and Tim Sullivan of Associated Press, there have been some recent populist stirrings in India against corruption and its cover-up.  Not that there have not long been those Indians who have stood up valiantly against these. One may hope that the groundswell will come to include corrupt gurus. 

A few courageous Indians, like B. Premanand, the famous “guru buster”, Rationalists, Humanists and People’s Union for Civil Liberties PUCL), work to expose Sathya Sai Baba and others who hold such tremendous sway with power brokers, and escape accountability. Would that India’s religious leaders would, in sufficient numbers raise their voices, as, for example, Swami Agnivesh has been doing.

With great courage and undying credit, a handful have not been afraid to mention sexual abuse and other evils publicly.  Even when failing to get certain gurus behind bars, it is a great achievement to get their covert mischief in front of the public gaze. Jail, and the threat of it, may have its uses, but the primary need is to educate a public so that it is on its guard.
