Why Nithyananda Sex Scandal Investigations and Not A Sathya Sai Baba Probe?

Posted by Barry Pittard on March 26, 2010

The Swami Nithyananda sex scandal unfolds in India. One might well wonder – although a great many Indians who know the corruption that pervades the power elites in India will not be puzzled – why there have been decades of news blanketing in that country of reports that threaten the power and prestige of Sathya Sai Baba.

The greatest factor is the grip that he has on politicians, judiciary, police, armed services, corporates, and so on. But there is a new and questing India that is growing among her young, who are increasingly throwing off the trammels of their forbears, who were profoundly locked in superstition and subservient to their British colonial masters. That she is still to a chronic degree prey to old and crippling attitudes, however, is evidenced by the prevalence of gerontocracy, nepotism and casteism among so many of her rulers. (These days, the casteism is often cleverly disguised). The young Nithyananda, though visited by various politicians, has clearly not had powerful enough protective patronage at high levels. His story got out. It was not spiked – or sufficiently spiked by editors. Which would be a bit difficult after Sun TV had broadcast steamy footage.

Another  factor is that decades of allegations against Sathya Sai Baba relate to pedophilia and also sex with young men. Heavily tabooed sex more often repels. It is not likely to grind down the internet search engines with queries such as:

Nityananda sex video, Nityananda Ranjitha video, Nityananda sex tape, Nityananda fraud, Nityananda video, Nityananda video of sexual act, Swami Nityananda Ranjitha full video, Nityananda video clippings, Ranjitha hot video, etc., …

Heterosexuality is, of course, by far the norm, and here sex sells enormously more widely.  Especially, when the names of glamorous female film actresses like Ranjitha and Yurvarani are coupled with the hapless Nithyananda, the salaciousness index climbs sky-high. Of course, these young women are also hapless, and it is all very saddening to think of the likely impact on their lives.

A glance at a cross-section of the Indian media, blogsite and other reactions indicate an appalling lack of respect for such civilized notions as benefit of doubt until more evidence is produced. The evidence against Sathya Sai Baba is huge, and, if she does nothing about this, India’s shame will endure down the ages. In the case of one so vastly powerful and influential as Sathya Sai Baba, history does not easily forget.

A great many Hindus take the celibacy of monks and nuns under vows very seriously. The practice of ‘bramacharya’  means that a monk and a nun (swami or swamini) abjures a sexual life so that they can pursue single-mindedly a life of service to others, of prayer, meditation, and so on. Millions of Hindus support ashrams with this understanding in mind. It is a very ancient one. Therefore, a monk or nun who practises a double standard violates not only sacred oaths but is breaking faith with the understanding and trust that lie behind huge donations and other forms of support for any given ashram. In short, false pretenses.

    Report from

    Bangalore, Mar 20: Troubles are only adding up for scandal-tainted Swami Nithyananda as two more cases have been registered against him in Karnataka.

    Ramanagaram district police has received a statement from Guru Charan, nephew of Union external affairs minister SM Krishna alleging that the Swamiji is involved in many more criminal activities, reports DNA.
    “I have come forward on my own to file a complaint against the spiritual leader, who has hurt the religious sentiments of the people of Karnataka. This is required as no other person from the state has come forward to lodge any complaint against him till date,” Charan is quoted as saying.

    Besides this, a Kannada actor, Praveen has also reportedly lodged a similar police complaint.

    The media report published on Saturday, Mar 20 notes that both the men are from Mandya.

    The godman has already been slapped with several charges including rape, cheating, unnatural sex among others. Karnataka police is hunting for the godman, whose sex scandal came to light on Mar 2 when a sleazy video showing the Swamiji in a compromising position with Tamil actress Ranjitha hit the media.

    The case was transferred from Tamil Nadu to Karnataka as the sex tape is believed to have been recorded in Nithyananda’s Bidadi ashram.

    The Karnataka police believes that this is just the beginning and is expecting a lot more cases in the coming days.

    ‘World Hindu’ by 2030. VHP’s Singhal Reports Sathya Sai Baba Told Him

    Posted by Barry Pittard on September 9, 2008

    One of India’s most powerful Hindu nationalist leaders, Ashok Singhal, who has an international profile in the Hindu world, has just told an assembly of political and religious luminaries in Delhi of a prophecy he says Sathya Sai Baba shared with him. The Organiser, September 14, 2008, reports:

    “… Shri Singhal also threw light on how to strengthen the Hindu society and unite our great India. The VHP leader, while disclosing his discussion with Satya Sai Baba, said that Sai Baba had informed him that between 2020 and 2030 the whole India would be of Hindus and after 2030 the whole world would be of Hindus”.

    Note:

    The Individual referred to in the quote (right) is the international president of the VHP, which stands for Vishwa Hindu Parishad, founded by the late Swami Chinmayananda. It grew from a number of the factors that birthed  the Hindu nationalist organisation known as RSS or Rashtriya Swamyamsekak Sangh, which is very powerful, militant and highly organized. According to David James Smith, Hinduism and Modernity P189, Blackwell Publishing ISBN 0-631-20862-3 VHP general secretary, S.S. Apte, formerly a member of the RSS, stated:

    “The world   has been divided to Christian, Islam and Communist. All of them view Hindu society as very fine rich food on which to feast and fatten themselves. it is necessary in this age of conflict to think of and organize the Hindu world to save it from the evils of all the three”.

    Quote: “There are Sathya Sai Baba devotees in some of the highest echelons of power in various countries. Their faith in him may be touching but not likely to be fulfilled. Despite various statements such as that that he would not age or get sick, he looks fragile and decrepit, increasingly muttering oddities and making egregious blunders”. See Sathya Sai Baba’s Tips To Keep Ageing Away.

    Has ‘World Saviour’ Missed His Plane?

    Quote: “In his February 16, 2007 so-called ‘divine discourse’, Sai Baba said, “I intend to undertake a world tour, shortly.” But will he? How can he? The guru, perhaps the most wealthy and politically powerful in India’s long history, claims that he will save the world in his own lifetime. He will, he says, preside over the greatest changes ever to occur in history – the Muslims being the last to accept that he is God”.
