Tony O’Clery (an ex-Sai-Devotee) Defames India’s President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
In a shocking display of hatred and vindictiveness, the former devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, Anthony “Tony” O’Clery, publicly defamed India’s President (Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam) as possible being a “gay pedophile” on a QuickTopic forum.
On February 22nd 2007, Tony O’Clery duplicated an article from Sanal Edamaruku (an Indian rationalist, atheist and critic of Sathya Sai Baba) on the QuickTopic forum, for which he gave the title “INDIA’S PRESIDENT IS IN ALL LIKLEHOOD A GAY PEDOPHILE LIKE HIS GURU” (Reference).
Sai Baba proponents have pointed out that these types of gutter accusations are typical among ex-followers, who similarly accuse Sai Baba of being a “gay pedophile” without proof. Gerald Moreno (webmaster for the saisathyasai.com website) queried that if ex-devotees loosely, deliberately and willfully malign India’s President without proof, what does this say about the integrity of their claims against Sai Baba?
Ex-Devotees of Sathya Sai Baba should publicly apologize for these vicious defamations against India’s President and should publicly censure Tony O’Clery.
“It’s about time the general public see what kind of people are waging these vicious smear and hate campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba. All along, people have been misled about the allegations against Baba. It is all based on heresay, rumor, gossip, second-hand stories and contradictory online ‘testimonies’. Sathya Sai Baba has never been charged with any crime, sexual or otherwise. As a matter of fact, not even one alleged victim has even tried to file a court case or basic police complaint against Sai Baba in India first-hand“, Moreno said.
