Sathya Sai Baba Sex Abuse Allegations: A Typical ‘Iceberg Tip’ Testimony

"I invite my reader to click across to Robert Priddy’s blogsite and read the short piece he has just blogged. These quoted emails are but an iceberg tip of testimony that we have encountered. I am confident that most readers would not feel up to processing many of the appalling abuse revelations that we have seen.

As international co-ordinators on behalf of a wide former Sathya Sai Baba follower group, Robert Priddy and I have gone to great lengths to ensure that no security is breached in those many confidential reports which we have received. In reporting student or ex-student or other experiences, we carefully release only what has been carefully vetted. We err on the side of great caution. In some cases, even the slightest hints of time, place or occasion could give up information enough for Sathya Sai Baba officials to unravel jigsaw puzzle-like bits and pieces and create untold harm for individuals and families, some of whom have close association with the Sathya Sai Organization to this day. Indeed, some family members are dependent on Sai Baba’s largesse".
