Sathya Sai Baba: ‘Considerable Concern’ In Wider Hindu Community

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 21, 2009


"A great many Hindus do not at all approve of Sai Baba, as anyone who has travelled extensively in India or who knows many non-resident Indians knows only too well".

"A small but powerful test:  simply,  ask your Indian friends their reaction to the name Mahatma Gandhi or Shirdi Sai Baba, and then to the name Sathya  Sai Baba. The qualitative difference of reaction will commonly be altogether striking".

"Many Indians - Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Parsis, Christians, Buddhists, Humanists, Rationalists and so on - are appalled by the incredibly lavish pomp and circumstance that surround Sathya Sai Baba. They do not want his going around in a golden chariot and all the rest of the panoply to represent the greatness of their country".

NOTE:  This article notes in passing how the head of the UK Sathya Sai Organization Ashok Bhagwani - with considerable intellectual fallaciousness - has stretched connotations (among those who will be perturbed at the BBC's exposure of Sathya Sai Baba of the notion: 'Sai Baba followers' to extend to the meaning of 'the Asian community'.
