Early Day Motion
Following the recent letter by PM Tony Blair about Sai Baba, Tony Colman MP has tabled this Early day motion against Sai Baba in the British Parliament, asking for a formal warning warning to UK citizens potentially travelling to Sai Baba Ashram. The motion number is 886.
MP Tony Colman requests that all UK citizens write their member of parliament and ask them to support this motion. PM Tony Blair may make a statement on this matter, in the light of developments about Sai Baba in the last 2 years, and especially since he himself had written a letter to Tony Colman expressing his and the British Government's position on the Sai Baba matter
Sai Baba and sexual abuse of children no. 886
That this House, mindful of the many accounts and witness statements of the sexual abuse of the male children of devotees by the Indian guru, Sai Baba, calls upon the Foreign Secretary to use the Travel Advice for India page of the Foreign Office Website to issue guidance to British families intending to visit the Ashram of Sai Baba about the possible danger to their male children of individual audiences with the guru.
Comment from Glen Meloy on the above news
Today, there was an important reference posted on the message boards to statements made on the floor of the House of Commons about sb.
Unfortunately, there were no authenticating references.
I think it is important that we as webmasters, individual researchers and writers be as accurate and thorough as possible when we are posting information on web sites or discussion boards. It's not enough to expect the viewer to just take our word for a statement attributed to another government and/or to refer to another web site that even then does not give the full details including the authenticating source. There is no need for such secrecy.
The information below can be seen as it appears on the official Parliament Web site by clicking on a few links.
It also lists the other names who are supporting the motion on the floor of the House of Commons.
By listing the URL for the official website, it allows anyone to check out the facts for themselves and also to stay abreast of the latest happenings without having to get it piecemeal.
Let's avoid as much duplication as possible and always give authenticating references whenever possible on all materials that are to be posted for the general public.
This is an example of how to verify the motion made today by Tony Colman. I hope it will be helpful.
Much Love and Light,
