Corrupt Indian Judges Stonewall Case Vs Sai Baba
"In 2001, the celebrated Indian advocate Kamini Jaiswal (who was a lawyer for the famous ‘Bandit Queen’ Phoolan Devi) attempted to mount, pro bono, a case against Sai Baba on behalf of a former Sai Baba devotee, Hari Sampath ...Two other prominent Indian advocates Prashant Kumar and Gaurav Agarwal appeared along with Kamini Jaiswal. However, they were entirely thwarted by judges in the New Delhi Supreme Court - the Sai Baba-partial Judges Lahoti and Patnaik. There is a document which reveals instantly to any alert and unbiased reader what a ‘kangaroo court’ theirs was. This document’s provenance we can prove to competent and principled enquirers".Sai Baba’s “Back Yard” Still A Mess

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"

"That attempts are being made to overcome a tragic deficit is evident in the release of a major study on child abuse by the current Manmohan Singh government. I have blogged information about this study"
