Very Minor Victory For Amma-Violence Victims

File under: Amma All-Over-The-Planet and Amma's Goongate

We're a little late in reporting this, but one of the Green Avenue residents has informed us that the local cops have climbed out of Ammachi's breast pocket long enough to enforce the local community sign covenant in the suburb of New Delhi, India that saw a bus load of iron bar-wielding goons tear through the neighborhood last April:
But for one small direction board to the Amma Ashram, all the illegitimate boards have eventually been removed/got removed. The M.C.D.(Local Municipality) did enforce the law, albeit late.

Let us hope and pray that good sense prevails upon the ungodly men of the Delhi Mata Amritanandmai Ashram and nothing untoward happens again.
It kinda has us wondering, where is the good sense their Mamma was supposed to be bestowing upon them at her ashram? Or perhaps it was Mamma's "good sense" that sent them on a riotous mission in a murderous frenzy in the first place...

Whaddya wanna bet that some modest response was made on behalf of the Green Street, residents, because A's people recognized that the story was spreading all over cyberspace?

Until recently, a guru could sic his or her goondas on anyone with no consequences.

But today, someone roughed up can publish the story, plus pictures, and have those read by concerned persons all over the world.

The Internet is a great karma accelerator.

I believe you are correct in what you write. I also believe this radical political party does not like having attention brought to its front doors. The potent combination of Amma's funds finding their way in to the bank accounts of this group, the photos of injured bodies due to violent beatings, Amma being asked to publicly speak out and settle this matter or close her doors... i.e., the end to the "gravy train" of BIG bucks flowing in nonstop.

It all adds up to "one small step", take down the sign.

Amma, this does NOT let you off the hook. Where is YOUR public apology and commentary on these issues? Taking down a sign is "one" step, it does NOT resolve this situation.

Where is YOUR public statement, Amma? Not one from your PR department, where is YOUR public statement?

Jody, thank you again for all of the great work you do here!

I agree. A has to do more to make amends.

Exposing violent behavior (plus photographs) in cyerspace is a good start, but only a start.

What would really matter is having a front page article on Green Street published by Times of India, with follow up in some major newspapers in the West, especially in areas where Amma has her highest concentrations of money-generating Western devotees.
