Can Tomorrow’s Indian Citizens March Like Today’s Egyptians?

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 13, 2011

Kind reader, please indulge me an acute understatement:

Exposing Sathya Sai Baba, and that core of servitors who exercise control over his worldwide cult, has not been easy.

Crowded around him, like a protective phalanx, have long been Indian presidents, prime and ministers, many ministers and civil service heads from both State and Central governments, Supreme and High Court judges, heads of police, the armed services, foreign service, foremost industrialists, financiers …. and a long list more of India’s social, political and cultural elites.

As I watched the footage of brave Egyptian citizens risking their lives to unseat a leader and government they believe have sorely betrayed the people, my mind reflected back to the courage – to take but one example – of thousands of Indian citizens who accompanied Mahatma Gandhi on the great salt marches.

Mahatma Gandhi and Sarojini Naidu march for India’s freedom, 1930

These marches protested – non-violently – the British monopoly (to name just one facet of rulership over India) on salt. It led to the far greater Civil Disobedience Movement. And, in the spirit of Gandhi’s extraordinary example of non-violence, millions of Indians engaged in acts of civil disobedience, after which (although, far beyond the power of a Gandhi to stop the blood-soaked madness that engulfed vast numbers, in particular of Hindus and Muslims at the time of partition between India and what became Pakistan),  India gained her political freedom in August 1947.

Whatever may be thought of Gandhi’s notions of tradition-versus-modernity, he had something that India’s subsequent leaders have distinctively not had – freedom from corruption.

Perhaps, if India’s people took their courage in their own hands, they could, once more, show a shining example to the world, and come out on the streets like the Egyptian people are now doing – but without the bloodshed. But perhaps the culture of violent governmental suppression in that great and tragic country has gone too far. For but one of countless examples, see: Beatings, torture and killings by Police in India

One thing is sure. Sathya Sai Baba is not – and never has been – a leader who can transform a nation. But then, who else in India can?

Avoidance of the law in India

Note:  To the great distaste of lawyers from countries with far more respect for the law, many Indian judges, without accountability, throw out cases. One case was that run by one of India’s highest profile lawyers, Kamini Jaiswal. For her 2001 petition against Sathya Sai Baba, see an account here. Then see the Supreme Court document – which despite of slanderous allegations against our veracity by key Sathya Sai Baba supporters, proves that the petition was in fact presented and rejected here. The disgraced judges in the kangaroo court treatment of the Jaiswal led petition are pictured here:

Another writ petition was rejected by the Sathya Sai-biased High Court of Andhra Pradesh, see here. For  the typical sort of extraordinary judicial and other protection accorded Sathya Sai Baba and further evidence by the published letter of a former Prime Minister and Supreme Court judge, see here.

Judge Y.V. Anjaneyulu, of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, a long time devotee of Sathya Sai Baba (who also lives in Andhra Pradesh), ruled against B. Premanand’s petition, saying that a divine sort of person such as Sathya Sai Baba is not, when he materializes gold from spiritual realms, subject to the law appertaining to India’s Gold Standard Act. Sadly, Basava Premanand,

stripped of all rights of reason that would have stood in any properly conducted, democratic court, could but say:

“Defence based on spiritual powers is not recognised in law. If such a defence is permitted, there is not a single offence the commission of which could be met with the penalties and punishments, for the reason that on a plea of spiritual power being raised by the accused there is no way to prove or disprove the existence or non-existence of the pleaded spiritual power.” See: Satya Sai Baba and the Gold Act.

Note:  My tribute at the time of the death of B. Premanand is here: Basava Premanand. Vale. A fighter for truth who lived what others preach.

Prominent Indians Berate India’s Rife Political Corruption

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 6, 2009

Many are the intellectually extremely dishonest ploys used by those who fanatically oppose the exposure of Sathya Sai Baba and core leaders of his sect.

One of these ruses intended to blacken those who have stood for truth for a great many years of their lives is that former devotees who speak out are “India bashers”. To point out how he and his key servitors have only deepened the corruption that is rife in India greatly displeases them. They do not stop to consider that there are forces – many of them tremendously courageous – who criticise India from within. The fact that Sathya Sai Baba’s  apologists will not face is that Sai Baba has many times said that he and his Sathya Sai Organization are going to save the world, mostly within his own lifetime. He has failed. Many of his promises and predictions have already been categorically falsified. Reliable first-hand reports as well as recent photographic evidence show show that he is in marked decline. See related articles below.

Robert Priddy, former longtime leader of the Sathya Sai Organization in Norway and retired academic of the University of Oslo,

robertp

has just blogged most interestingly and with a generous supply of useful authoritative research links, suggesting some poste general election tide-turnings in India. He cites important and respected Indian commentators such as the 10th Chief Election Commissioner of India T.N. Seshan,

Former Indian Election Commissioner T.N. Seshan

and also the British citizen of Indian background, Sir Gulam Noon MBE.

Sir Gukam Noon, MBE - richest Indian immigrant in UK

Such commentators can hardly be accused of “India bashing” – they are telling it like it is – likely because they deeply care for the greatness that resides within India, and they stand against her betrayal.  See: India’s election gives some hope. Posted by robertpriddy on July 5, 2009. Priddy writes:

“The problems of the Indian masses have very largely been disregarded by the politicians and the huge obstructive and nest-feathering bureaucracy. The previous Congress-led government was too weak and dependent on other parties to take strong measures to raise the poor or provide them with the facilities which are essential to a minimum of decent livelihood. It is hoped – on behalf of India’s tortured poor and suffering, that this will begin to change, after setbacks in reduction of poverty in the last two decades. India can only benefit from such changes, the alternatives are too terrible to contemplate. There are many diaspora Indians who would never return to India other than for holidays or possibly old age retirement. Sir Gulam Noon, who made a fortune out of Britain’s appetite for Indian food, is one such. In the tabloid press he is known simply as the Curry King. Interviewed on Hard Talk by Stephen Sackur, he was asked if he thought investing in India would be an option for him, considering the credit crunch and the relative immunity of the Indian economy to its effects. In his reply, he made clear his view that – though he visits often and has involvements in India, not least in his charitable institutions, the country is still ruled by criminally-corrupt politicians. This is a major indictment by a diaspora Indian of such notability”.
