Indian Biz Column Blasts Sai Baba
File under: Satscams
A guest column running in the business section of Indian news site rediff.com has blasted Sathya Sai Baba as a charlatan, fraud and criminal. No names are mentioned, but we get the picture:
Many phonies and cheats have ridden the bhakti wave to fool God-wary Indians. Some have gobbled millions of rupees in 'donations.' Under the pretext of running charitable trusts, these phonies not only earn a healthy profit by selling their 'holy' paraphernalia but also are attractive avenues for people to wash hands off their black-money. Although many such cheats have been stripped of their 'holy' masks, the business is very much alive and kicking.Yo! Way to call it on the Baba! But we're a bit concerned about the rose petal treatment given to Ammachi and Sri Sri. We will continue to monitor the situation for signs of Ammabot infiltration and/or failure to remember genocide.
