Mock Bomb Drill Creates Much Ado At Puttaparti

ANANTAPUR: A mock bomb drill conducted by the police at Puttaparti on Thursday to assess the preparedness of authorities to face terror attacks, caused commotion.

Following bomb threats to Tirupati and Puttaparti, the police conducted the mock drill in front of Prashanti Nilayam. Two policemen fell down after bursting crackers. Cops in plain clothes rushed to the spot and shifted the ‘injured’ to hospital in an auto.

Devotees on the premises of Prashanti Nilayam ran helter-skelter following the ‘explosion’ unaware of the fact that it was a mock bomb drill. Shopkeepers downed their shutters and the entire area wore a deserted look within no time.

Rumours spread like wildfire that four people were killed in the bomb blast. Newspaper offices were flooded with phone calls seeking details of the incident. Some TV channels also broke the news of ‘blasts’ at Puttaparthi.

Later, the police revealed that it was a mock drill conducted to assess the alertness of authorities to face a terrorist attack, much to the relief of people.

The Satya Sai Trust reportedly complained to the Central and State governments against the police for conducting the mock bomb drill in front of Prashanti Nilayam without informing it priorly, which caused widespread panic. (Reference)

Not only does this article prove that the Police operate with automony at Puttaparthi (Ex Devotees claim that the police are in the pocket of Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Org), it also shows how false rumors spread like wildfire in India.

If the Police were truly in the pocket of the Sai Organisation, one would think that the Police would have informed the Sai Org about their mock bomb attack. They did not. If the police were truly in the pocket of the Sai Organization, the Sai Org would not have filed official complaints with the Central and State Governments against them. They did.

Another Anti-Sai conspiracy theory deflated.

Barry Pittard & Robert Priddy Associate Themselves With Proven Perverts

Barry Pittard is the self-professed “international coordinator in attempts to bring Sai Baba to justice” and is the founder of the bogus “global coalition” F.D.S.S.B.. His sidekick is the Anti-Sai Extremist from Oslo Norway, Robert Priddy. Although Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy have thrust themselves into the limelight as being the main spokespersons for the Anti-Sai Movement, they purposely suppress the fact that they explicitly, unabashedly and wholly endorse, promote and associate themselves with proven and known perverts, sexual deviants and pathological liars.

The following screen-caps show how both Pittard & Priddy solicit Sanjay Dadlani’s “Sai Baba EXPOSED” blog on their wordpress.com accounts (click on thumbnails to enlarge):

Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy see absolutely nothing wrong with Sanjay Dadlani’s homosexual-fantasizing slurs, Jesus Sex Fetish and Boot Sex Fetish. Although Sanjay went around secretly stalking innocent women (calling them “bitches” and “sluts”, saying “they want it”, calling Mothers “MILFs”, photographing females and teenagers up their dresses and under tables and publishing these photos on his streetbitches blog), Barry and Robert are right there holding hands with Sanjay. Shame on Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy!

Sanjay even posted on the QuickTopic Forum (using multiple fake names, including female names) and made disgusting comments under the name “Marquis de Sade”, even duplicating a post about a Priest ejaculating on the face of a little girl, as related by her brother. Sanjay even posted under the name “kick his head in” and said that someone should murder Sathya Sai Baba (of course, this is the same guy who rejoiced when a Sai Baba temple was bombed). Nice friend you have there, Barry & Robert.

Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy are fully aware of Reinier van der Sandt’s very disturbing admission to viewing child pornography. Barry and Robert purposely ignore the fact that Reinier used numerous fake names on the SSB2 Yahoo Group and hold hands with him as well (as can be seen with their association with him through the exbaba website).

Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy defend, promote and endorse perverts, defamers and liars. What does this say about Barry & Robert? I think the answer is self-evident. As they say, “Birds of feather flock together”.

Hearsay Allegations Against Sathya Sai Baba Questioned Since 2001

Even as far back as 2001, people sympathetic with Anti-Sai Activists were questioning the numerous hearsay claims of sexual abuse against Sathya Sai Baba. On the Sunrise Chat Page, the following conversations were recorded:

59: 11-01-01 TERRIE
“I agree with you about the non-value of hearsay. That is one reason that I have ‘retired’ from the exposé, except for helping a little with Sunrise. The Sunrise staff will not emphasize the molestation stories because we don’t know anyone personally who was molested. We also will no longer post letters by someone who says, “I know somone who was molested,” or “I’m in contact with victims.” If the so-called victims want to fight for what is right, then it is up to them to speak out and use their real names, not send their message via a third party. It is the victims who should be carrying the exposé, not those who are relying on hearsay.”

66: 11-05-01 TERRIE
“Barry, I am not the ex-devotee in the street. I’ve helped with Sunrise almost from its beginning and have monitored discussion boards. If you and everyone else who personally knows victims have not seen fit to put even one victim in touch with me (aside from the few well known victims who have posted their stories on the Internet), where does that put faith and trust? Do you think I am going to shout the names of sb’s victims from the rooftops??? I am therefore put in my present position of not being a credible witness to anything. Time to leave the floundering exposé.”

72: 11-08-01 BARRY PITTARD
“I shall briefly mention an issue which, I suppose, will have to keep coming up until it is resolved. Quite a few pro ssb apologists AND former devotees have asked: Where are the victims? One of the difficulties encountered again and again is this: some victims say they will testify, then back off. Some would like to but are afraid re e.g., parents, friends, work situations, handling the emotional stuff that comes up … etc. Not everyone agrees with all the secrecy. I see a real point in it. When I get time, I shall perhaps make out the case. I used to think it was obvious; however, I find that not all former devotee activists agree. I’d be happy for them to make out a sustained, well-argued case for openness. Personally, I have found that – at least for the time being – the fewer persons who have access to victims’ information the more secure they feel, and the better becomes the rapport. As I view it, if we could all be sure that there is not, sometimes, mischief abroad, and, at other times, even simple human inadvertences, then the case for secrecy may be quite dismal. Love, Barry”

73: 11-08-01 SUNRISE
“We continue to feel that the victims should be out there fighting for themselves and any future victims there might be. The current situation reminds us of the prince (victims) who sends his servant (non-victims working for the exposé) to fetch the bride (the truth about sb). The bride never makes it back to the prince, but runs off with the servant. (Without the victims, the truth will be known only to a few “believers,” and the exposé will fail.) The exposé cannot succeed without the victims having the courage to present themselves before the world and tell their story.” (Reference)

Fast forward to the current time and the situation has not changed one bit. The Anti-Sai Movement is mostly carried on the shoulders of Ex-Devotees who were never “molested” or “sexually abused” themselves.

Although a few alleged victims were very vocal on the internet, they have refused to file even a basic police complaint against Sathya Sai Baba in India. For example, Said Afshin Khorramshahgol claimed he was sexually abused (although at the time of his alleged abuse he was not aware that Baba’s actions were “sexual”) and made literally thousands of posts (and created his own website) shouting about his alleged sexual abuse. Therefore, Afshin was not embarrassed or afraid about parents, friends or fellow employees finding out. Nor was he afraid of “handling the emotional stuff that comes up”. So why haven’t Anti-Sai Activists assisted Afshin in filing a police complaint or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India? The answer is because Afshin Khorramshahgol is not credible. Afshin claimed that Baba touched his penis, made Afshin touch his penis and that Baba was moaning “sexually” while making “loud, wild voices”, yet did not realize all this was sexual until after he saw a video allegedly showing Baba faking a materialization many months after his alleged interviews. Said Afshin Khorramshahgol’s online behavior also shows he appears to have very disturbing mental issues. Despite critics claiming that Sathya Sai Baba’s “empire” is worth billions of dollars”, not even money-hungry lawyers will touch alleged victims. Ever wonder why?

Therefore, the Anti-Sai Movement relies almost exclusively on people who were never “sexually abused” by Sathya Sai Baba. The Anti-Sai Movement is based solely on the contradictory stories of six non-anonymous and alleged “victims” and numerous hearsay allegations, rumors, gossip, speculations, assumptions, conspiracy theories, second/third-hand accounts and anonymous accusations. This sums up the Anti-Sai Movement in a nutshell.

To Date:

  • Sathya Sai Baba has never been proven to be a “charlatan”.
  • Sathya Sai Baba has never been convicted of any crime.
  • Sathya Sai Baba has never been charged with any crime.
  • Sathya Sai Baba has never had even one single complaint lodged against him by any alleged victim, first-hand, in India. As a matter of fact, not even one alleged victim has even tried to file a basic police complaint or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India (the only place where courts would have jurisdiction over Baba as an individual defendent).

These are the cold, hard facts and no rationalist, critic, skeptic or ex-devotee can provide a scintilla of verifiable evidence to the contrary.

Anti-Sai Activist’s greatest accomplishments lie in conning the general public with deception, rhetoric and propaganda. Ex-Devotees have become extremely proficient in recyling their Anti-Sai slop and peddling it off as the “truth” to the unsuspecting masses. Needless to say, even those sympathetic with ex-devotees were disturbed by the numerous hearsay accounts leveled against Sai Baba. In 2001, Barry Pittard said “the case for secrecy may be quite dismal”. Six years later and Barry Pittard is still resorting to the “secrecy” and “confidential” excuses. The Anti-Sai Movement has all but collapsed on itself and the exposé has “failed” and is “floundering” (furthered by Unesco’s Letter of Regret and the US State Department Removing All Indirect References To Sathya Sai Baba From Their Website). There is simply no verifiable proof that can be cited to support the claim that the Anti-Sai Movement has any steam left to fuel it. There is plenty of proof, however, that the Anti-Sai Movement has plenty of hot gas left to fuel it.

Alan Kazlev’s Conflicting Public And Private Behavior

Alan Kazlev (the “integral morality and ethics” hypocrite) talked trash behind my back with Sanjay Dadlani calling me (as Sanjay put it), “a slimy character”. I contacted Alan and asked him if Sanjay’s statements were true and he admitted he talked to Sanjay about me but couldn’t quite recall using that particular phrase. Nevertheless, Alan did recall using the phrase “obsessive nit-picking attitude”.

It does not surprise me that Alan Kazlev likes to talk trash behind other’s backs because when he was in correspondence with me, he spoke trash behind the backs of Reinier Van Der Sandt and Sanjay Dadlani (aka “Sai Exposed”) and said:

“is it Reinier using your name? i tell you, glancing through those yahoo posts, it seems like this guy and his buddy Sai Exposed are a bunch of adolescent fuckheads”

Kazlev also had the following to say about Reinier:

“yep, he is one sick character alright… (the more one reads on all this, the dirtier one feels…ughh! Like swimming in a sewer)…i have to admit, the more i look into this guy the less i like him”

That’s right. Kazlev called both Reinier and Sanjay “adolescent fuckheads”! Now, however, Kazlev is kissing their feet, calling them “decent” people and has nothing but praise for them.

Alan Kazlev sees absolutely nothing wrong with Sanjay Dadlani‘s homosexual-fantasizing slurs, Jesus Sex Fetish and Boot Sex Fetish. Although Sanjay went around secretly stalking innocent women (calling them “bitches” and “sluts”, saying “they want it”, calling Mothers “MILFs“, photographing females and teenagers up their dresses and under tables and publishing these photos on his streetbitches blog), Alan is right there holding hands with Sanjay, saying he is a “decent” person. Shame on Alan Kazlev!

Sanjay even posted on the QuickTopic Forum (using multiple fake names, including female names) and made disgusting comments under the name “Marquis de Sade“, even duplicating a post about a Priest ejaculating on the face of a little girl, as related by her brother. Sanjay even posted under the name “kick his head in” and said that someone should murder Sathya Sai Baba (of course, this is the same guy who rejoiced when a Sai Baba temple was bombed). Nice friend you have there, Alan.

Alan Kazlev formerly agreed with me regarding Reinier van der Sandt‘s very disturbing admission to viewing child pornography. Alan Kazlev also ignored the fact that Reinier used numerous fake names on the SSB2 Yahoo Group and now holds hands with him as well, calling him a “decent” person. Alan Kazlev defends, promotes and endorses perverts, defamers and liars. What does this say about Alan? I think the answer is self-evident. As they say, “Birds of feather flock together”.

Alan Kazlev wrote an email to Lisa De Witt that said:

“Lisa, i don’t give a fuck about Andries, so don’t assume to know MY motives…I was referring to the advantage of adopting a civil attitude…I originally didnt even give your name (that was a mistake i see now) to spare you being harassed by dickheads. Although this was funny because as a result Reinier showed himself to be dyslexic or whatever his problem is, but thinking that your email to me was written by me…To tell the truth, i was really quite shocked by your ad hominen attack on Willmcw, accusing him of soviet style mindfuck and all the rest…Lisa, you would achieve much much more if you only went about things in a respectful and polite way. Even if some of the ex-devotees act are abusive and deceitful…at least you would know that you have not lowered yourself to their standard.”

Alan Kazlev (the “integral morality and ethics” expert) called Sanjay, Reinier, et al “dickheads” and “dyslexic” and then stated (matter of factly) that one should adopt a “civil attitude”, go about things in a “respectful and polite way” and rest assured that “at least you would know that you have not lowered yourself to their standard”. Talk about utter self-denial and being blind to one’s own hypocrisy.

Once Alan Kazlev got his big ego bruised by me, he discarded his holier-than-thou rants, foamed-at-the-mouth and had the audacity to imply that I received a sexual oiling “massage” from Sathya Sai Baba and that I view Sai Baba as a “much loved surrogate father figure” and “possibly a pretend homosexual lover” (Reference) This is the type of hypocritical behavior exhibited by a person who publicly rants about “integral morality and ethics” and publicly postures himself as a spiritual authority.

Alan Kazlev loves to stab people in the back and call them vulgar names although he hypocritically preaches in public about “love”, “letting go of hatred”, “accepting the principle of Love and Empathy and Unity”, “seeing God in all beings”, hate creating “karmic patterns” and living from one’s “genuine spiritual heart consciousness”. When no one is watching, Alan Kazlev turns into a vicious defamer (exhibiting his Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde syndrome), spitting venom and defaming others with his negativity, paranoia, unsupported speculations and obsessiveness.

And to top it all off, Alan Kazlev claims that Ramana Maharshi is his “Sadguru” and that Sri Aurobindo and Mother Mirra are his “Gurus”. Needless to say, Ramana Maharshi and Sri Aurobindo never taught or promoted any type of hate, violence, anger or judgmentalism. It is nothing less than shameful that Alan Kazlev promotes himself in association with these revered Indian Sages.

Of course, Alan Kazlev shamelessly talks about his past lives on his website and scrapped his Disrepectable Me article after realizing how much of an embarrassement and liability it was to his crediblity. Alan Kazlev (a pseudo-philosopher and pseudo-devotee) attempts to legitimize his weird personal beliefs, insecurities and isolation (due to his severe stuttering problem that prevents him from “functioning in any sort of real life group – good or bad”) by associating himself with Gurus who are well respected in spiritual and philosophical communities.

Alan, do you remember your comments to Joe Moreno about hate creating “karmic patterns”. Well, it appears your hate has come back to bite you since you decided to go on the attack first. You’ve messed with the wrong person and you have now been thoroughly exposed as a spiritual fraud, true-believer and part of the lunatic fringe often seen and associated with cults and religious movements (partly in thanks to your friend Robert Priddy).

Alan Kazlev: Crank & Crackpot?

Exposing Martin Alan Kazlev, webmaster for Kheper.net, the biased Anti-Sathya-Sai-Baba sympathizer.

On Wikipedia, a Kazlev fan started a wiki-page for him and the page was suggested for deletion. The majority of editors agreed that the page should be deleted and some referred to Alan Kazlev as a “crank” and “crackpot”.

The posts read, from three different editors:

Delete – looks like a crank, fails by any reasonable definition of notability.

Delete Crackpots need to cause quite a stir in order to be notable enough for inclusion. I see no stir.

Certainly a crank. Delete as failing WP:RS.

WIKIPEDIA’S DEFINITION:
Wikipedia defines “Crank” as a pejorative term for a person who:

  1. holds some belief which the vast majority of his contemporaries would consider counterfactual
  2. clings to this belief in the face of all counterarguments or evidence presented to him.

The term implies that:

  1. a “cranky” belief is so wildly at variance with some commonly accepted truth as to be ludicrous
  2. arguing with the crank is useless, because he will invariably dismiss all evidence or arguments which contradict his cranky belief

Common synonyms for “crank” include kook and crackpot.

Virtually universal characteristics of cranks include:

  1. Cranks vastly overestimate their own knowledge and ability, and vastly underestimate that of acknowledged experts.
  2. Cranks insist that their alleged discoveries are urgently important.
  3. Cranks rarely if ever acknowledge any error, no matter how trivial.
  4. Cranks love to talk about their own beliefs, often in inappropriate social situations, but they tend to be very, very bad listeners, and often appear to be utterly uninterested in anyone else’s experience or opinions.

Some cranks exhibit a lack of academic achievement, in which case they typically assert that academic training in the subject of their crank belief is not only unnecessary for discovering “the truth”, but actively harmful because they believe it “poisons” the minds by teaching falsehoods. Others greatly exaggerate their personal achievements, and may insist that some alleged achievement in some entirely unrelated area of human endeavor implies that their cranky opinion should be taken seriously.

Some cranks claim vast knowledge of any relevant literature, while others claim that familiarity with previous work is entirely unnecessary; regardless, cranks inevitably reveal that whether or not they believe themselves to be knowledgeable concerning relevant matters of fact, mainstream opinion, or previous work, they are not in fact well-informed concerning the topic of their belief.

IN CONCLUSION
Now read Alan’s scrapped “Disrespectable Me” and “Introduction” page.

Funny enough, Alan’s friends (Robert Priddy and Sanjay Dadlani) also fit the definitions for a “crank” and a “crackpot”.

Umm…enough said.
