Channel Nine MSN Withdraws Anti-Baba Video

Channel Nine MSN Withdraws Anti-Baba Video

Within 48 hours of Joe Moreno (a Pro-Sai Activist) sending Channel Nine MSN a scathing response to their biased and poorly researched Anti-Baba broadcast, the video was promptly withdrawn from their official website.

About the withdrawal of the Anti-Baba Channel Nine MSN video, Robert Priddy (a caustic defamer and critic of Sathya Sai Baba) said on his Anti-Baba WordPress blog:

Robert Priddy - An Admission

Robert Priddy Admission

Robert Priddy: NOTE: A reliable source from within the media has confirmed that Channel NineMSN withdrew the presence of its ‘Infiltrating a cult’ segment because the Sathya Sathya Sai cult threats of legal action. Media around the world, including SBS and The Age in Australia have refused to be intimidated by the powerful Sathya Sai Organisation. We will not be intimidated and continue to make available the footage!

Needless to say, a large & national news broadcasting company such as Channel Nine MSN (which is far larger and more viewed than SBS or The Age) would not have removed the video had there not been legitimate complaints about the content and disinformation in their video.

It is also important to note that if Channel 9 MSN was truly threatened with legal action, they (and their world-class legal reps) would not have discussed this information with (or divulged this information to) any casual outsider. This type of legal information (if true) would only have come from someone within the NineMSN company, thus proving (once again) that NineMSN A Current Affair was directly involved with Anti-Baba Critics, contrary to Robert Priddy’s claims that they were not.

Thank you Mr. Priddles for yet another confirmation of behind-the-scenes scheming and subterfuge between NineMSN A Current Affair and Ex-Devotees.

Today’s terror is one of the biggest tormentors throughout the world and music artistes like to spread the message of peace through music. Keeping in mind the motto of ‘World Peace’ through music, an evening of Indian Classical music was organised recently by Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation and the Sri Sathya Sai University at Sri Satya Sai Auditorium, New Delhi, where renowned sitar player Shubhendra Rao, cello player Saskia Rao and shehnai player Sanjeev Shankar enthralled the audience.

During the programme, they presented five compositions in which Shubhendra and Saskia presented two of them followed by a jugalbandi of Sanjeev and Shubhendra on three compositions. Apart from this Shubhendra and Saskia presented a Greek composition, while the duo of Sanjeev and Shubhendra presented Indian Folk. During the concert a Hindi Baul song was also presented, which was applauded by the audience. In between the various compositions, a jugalbandi of Sanjeev-Shubhendra in Mishra Khamaaj had the audience on their toes.

Dedicated to world peace, the programme also had four religious gurus, whose presence certainly gave the strong message of ‘Faith in Unity’.

Universal Music-Zee Marathi’s Pancharatna
Universal Music India and Zee Marathi have joined hands to come up with a string of albums showcasing the rich tradition of music in Maharashtra. Pancharatna stands tall with its efforts in taking Maharashtra’s young, budding talent to the true music lovers across the country. The idea was conceived keeping in mind the immense talent that has emerged from Maharashtra from Lata Mangeshkar, Pt Bhimsen Joshi and Suresh Wadkar to today’s Swapnil Bandodkar, Bela Shende and Avadhoot Gupte.

Music has been an integral part of Maharashtrian culture. The youth even today is inclined to the cultural heritage of the local music that offers diverse genres ranging from classical and folk to rock. To add to this, Universal Music has joined hands with Zee Marathi to make this content available to the audiences in the form on audio CDs, DVDs, VCDs and MP3-CDs at attractive prices.

The first album series is a compilation of some of the great performances by Zee Marathi’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs Kartiki Gaikawad, Rohit Raut, Arya Ambekar, Prathmesh Laghate and Mugdha Vaishampayan.
