Basava Premanand And The ‘Venkatamuni Murder’ Lie

Basava Premanand And The ‘Venkatamuni Murder’ Lie
Basava Premanand (a fanatic atheist, rationalist and skeptic) ridiculously alleged the following about Sathya Sai Baba:
Basava Premanand: “I have the records of more than a hundred persons destroyed by the Satya Sai Baba gang beginning with one Mr. Venkatamuni of Madres who was done away at Madurai in an air conditioned room and then after getting death certificates from doctors taken to Madras by Satya Sai Baba in his own car and cremated without giving any information to the police and thus hushing up the matter. Afterwards the doctors who gave the death certificates also succumbed to death. In these deaths the mode of operation is in five ways: 1. Death by car accidents; 2. Death by Heart failure; 3. Death by poisoning; 4. Death by hanging; 5. Death by drowning.”

Premanand’s Gutter Lie Refuted & Exposed By RadioSai
Mr. Venkatamuni’s son (Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni) has since come forward (at the request of RadioSai) and thoroughly refuted (on video) Premanand’s absurd and gutter lie that his father was “done away in Madurai”. Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni unequivocally stated that:

  1. His father was not murdered.
  2. His father died at Kodaikanal on June 13th 1966.
  3. Many people were present when his father died.
  4. No one suspected any foul play.
  5. His father’s funeral lasted 11 days with many family members present.
  6. There was no secrecy regarding his father’s death and funeral.

Excerpts of a conversation between Mr. Praveen and Prof. G. Venkataraman

G. Venkataraman: This is from the article written by an Icelander now living in Sweden. He says a lot of horrible things. This is what he says: ‘In a bold style, Mr. Venkatamuni of Madras, India was killed at Madurai by ‘Sai Baba gang’ and then after getting death certificate from the doctors, taken to Madras by Sathya Sai Baba in his own car and cremated without giving any information to the police, and thus hushing up the matter. Afterwards, the doctors who gave the certificates also succumbed to death. The narration can be read in August 1993 volume of the ‘Indian Skeptic’. Now this is a very clever way of speaking. The first question to you is when did your father die? And please tell us how he died.

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: My father breathed his last on Swami’s lap on June 13, 1966. At that time, somewhere around May, Swami had come to Chennai en-route to Kodaikanal (then, Madras) and told my mother: “I am taking Venkatamuni with me, have you any objection?” She said: ‘No Swami, I have no objection, You can take him to Kodaikanal’. So, we left in a fleet of cars. I was a part of the entourage along with Mr. Goganeni Venkateswara Rao, Mr. Kamavadhani, Mr. Chini Rao – the third son of Mrs. Anjali Devi, the film actress, Mr. Dasaratharama Reddy and a few others. So, we were all there and I was about 14-15 years old at that time. We all went to Kodai Kanal and stayed in the guest house of Mr. Narasimhachary, who was a long-standing devotee of Bhagavan. It was situated right on the lake.

We stayed there for about 10-15 days and Swami used to go round the lake on a walk and we used to accompany Him. Lots of people used to come and look at Him and return. This was in May-June 1966. And a couple of occasions, we went boating in the lake too. Few used to come to see Swami at that time. He was very free and I was given the duty of carrying His tambulam (beetle leaf) box. I did not know how to prepare it but was given the duty to carry it all along wherever Swami went.

So we were there for about 10-15 days and after that we began to return. We left Kodai Kanal and reached Madurai, where the organization had organized a public meeting for Bhagavan. We stayed in Mr. Subramanyam Chettiar’s house in Satya Sai Nagar. It was very hot, being June, and the public program with a Divine discourse was organised. Swami was supposed to leave for Brindavan the next day by car. My father and I were supposed to return to Madras. So, Swami was asking us if we would like to accompany Him to Brindavan, but my father said that it was already 15 days since he had come and he had a lot of work to attend to at his office. So, he asked to permit him to go to Madras first, and then visit Brindavan.

We were all staying in Mr. Chettiar’s house. We had booked tickets to return to Madras by train for June 14. And Swami was to leave on the morning of June 15. On June 13 was scheduled Swami’s discourse. We were all staying with Swami and had dinner with Him on the 13th. Being summer, Swami suggested, “Why don’t we have beds in the open terrace?” Swami was in His room and we were all sleeping in the open terrace. We finished dinner and returned to His room, and we were sitting and discussing about Swami’s discourse and Him on the terrace.

Suddenly, Swami walked onto the terrace and we all stood up. Swami asked all of us to sit down. Then, He went and sat on the bed of my father, which was on the floor. So, father starting getting up as a mark to respect for Swami, and he said, ‘Swami, I am feeling very giddy; I am going to faint’. So, Swami immediately stood up, caught hold of him and made him sit down slowly saying: “Venkatamuni, everything will be alright. Don’t worry, I am here”. And at the same time, he had a bout of breathing trouble.

We were all there watching the entire incident, about 10-15 people, including the members of the Chettiar family. So, immediately, Swami made him sit on the bed and He too sat beside him. Swami then put my father’s head onto His lap (though my father was reluctant), and just then he breathed his last in Swami’s lap.

We were all simply watching. We thought he has fainted as he was a diabetic. I was a kid then and did not know much about the right medication in such situations. A doctor was summoned who confirmed his death. We were all taken aback; we did not know what to do. Swami took control of the entire proceedings and said that we were leaving to Madras the same night. So, police permission was obtained. I was told a doctor’s death certificate was also obtained. I am not able to recall who the doctor was. But the doctor’s certificate and the police certificate were surely obtained.

The documents were perfect. And the same night, maybe within 1 hour, we all left to Madras along with the body. I was sitting next to Swami. Mr. Raja Reddy was also there driving the car. Father’s body was coming in a separate car behind Swami’s. We reached Madras early the next morning. My elder brother and my mother, at that time, had gone to Vijayawada for a wedding. So, they were returning the same day. They got to know that Swami is coming to Madras and had also got some unclear news about my father merging with Swami. We drove straight to our house.

Swami stayed at Madras for those 11 days in Mr. Venkateswara Rao’s house. He was there until the last ceremony was completed. He used to come to our house everyday and give us talks, encouraging us all the time. He said that my father had merged in Him. He affirmed that there was no punarjanma (re-birth) for my father. That was the first time somebody merged in Swami while on His lap.

Everyday harikatha (singing of God’s glory) was held for all the 11 days in the compound of our house. Most of our closest relatives who were also present at that time were against Swami. Though, now everyone has come into Swami’s fold. Even though they were against Swami at that time, they had to attend the rituals for the eleven days. After everything was over, Swami came and blessed my mother and us, and then left for Brindavan.

G. Venkataraman: Pardon me for asking this. But because all sorts of unfounded allegations have been made, I have to ask you this. Did your relatives, who did not believe in Swami, have any suspicion of any foul-play in all this?

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: No, Sir. My relatives did not cast any ill-feeling, or uttered even a single adverse word about the whole incident.

G. Venkataraman: So, they thought that his death was natural, as anyway, he was a diabetic. How old was he at the time of his death?

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: He was 55.

G. Venkataraman: So, there was no question of even a trace of any such suspicion by anyone, including your mother.

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: Absolutely none, sir. Nobody had any suspicion, whatsoever.

G. Venkataraman: Were you at any time conscious of the fact that certain things have been said against Swami about this incident? Or, are you surprised to hear what I told you just now?

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: This is news to me. I am hearing about this for the first time.

G. Venkataraman: You know, there are reasons, why I am asking you all this. First, you told me that your father passed away in 1966. The man who is making the allegation is quoting an article that was published in the ‘Indian Skeptic’ in August 1993. I am wondering, who is this man who came and investigated it? Did any of them come and ask you about anything?

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: None so far. Nobody has approached me or my family members.

G. Venkataraman: And still, they have written this. Here is a very strange sentence which gives a hint of how things are done. The person writes that ‘afterwards, the doctors who gave the death certificate also succumbed to death’. Everybody dies… The way it is written looks as something criminal was done to get rid of someone. You know, technically all that the sentence says is that the doctor is going to die. Everybody is going to die, for that matter. But the context in which it is written, is somewhat disturbing. The fact is that in 1993, for whatever reason, ‘Indian Skeptic’ – I had never heard of this journal before – writes an article and they don’t even bother to verify facts and this is quoted as the ‘holy truth’.

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: Even I have not heard about this journal till date.

G. Venkataraman: Now, let us spend the rest of the time the way it should be done. This is entirely for the record. First of all, let me start with the recall of what Swami said in 2006 in Trayee. You tell us the story after giving the background to it.

Mr. Praveen Venkatamuni: Swami gave a talk during a Trayee session in Brindavan on Sunday, June 4, 2006. And this has been penned down by my son who was doing his B.Com in Brindavan. This is the incident narrated by Swami. The note goes as below:

Swami had called for a Trayee Session. I was lucky to be seated in the first row and was doubly blessed in getting the golden opportunity of pressing the Divine Lotus Feet of our Lord. As the session went on, Swami suddenly looked at me and said: “Whenever I visited Madras, I stayed in the house of Venkatamuni, which is in 2nd Cross…”. He again looked at me when I said, it was Surya Rao Road, to which Swami said “Yes”. Swami narrated that the house was filled with people when He gave darshan. Swami continued to say that He asked Susheelamma (Venkatamuni’s wife) whether Venkatamuni should be with her or be with Swami; and she had said that he should be only with Swami.

Then Swami narrated that he had taken him to Kodai Kanal and once they returned, they stayed in Madurai. All were seated, when suddenly Venkatamuni told Swami that he was feeling giddy. Swami asked him to come to Him. Venkatamuni came to Swami, held His Lotus Feet and breathed his last while still holding onto His Lotus Feet. The second son of Venkatamuni who was just 15 years old was present when this happened. He had not even cried on seeing that his father was no more. He said that when Swami is with him, he does not need anything else.

Swami sat by his side in the car all the way to Madras. Even Susheelamma did not weep as she was sure that her husband had attained mukti (liberation) by breathing his last at the Lotus Feet. She told Swami what else she can pray for? Swami remarked that after Subbamma, it was Susheelamma who used to cook food for Him. She used to pack and bring even the curry leaves from Madras for cooking. Once Swami asked her as to why she was straining herself? Then she sent the cook who was in their house to cook food for Swami. His name was Vishwanath. She told Swami that he would do the cooking for Swami. Even when she was 80 years old, she would climb the stairs up and down to serve Swami.

Once she told Me that her children should be married. She had two sons and one daughter. Swami said that He performed the marriage of her first son, who has a son and a daughter. The son studied at Puttaparthi and Swami got him married too. He is now in Delhi employed in a reputed company. Swami said that He also performed the marriage of the daughter in Puttaparthi. He continued further saying that He performed the marriage of the second son of Sushelamma (i.e., myself) too.

He asked me to stand up so that all could see me and asked to be seated. Then, Swami said that I have a brother and all members of my family pray to Swami for mukti (liberation) and all of them listen to the words of Swami. If these boys go out, they will get good positions, but they all obey the words of Swami, and they are all very happy. Whoever listens to the words of Swami will always be happy. Swami pointed out to me and said that while joining this college, my mother told me not to join any groups and should always think of Swami, do service and behave well.

Then He asked, ‘Did she not tell you?’ I nodded my head. And then, Swami said that yesterday, my mother had come to Brindavan and asked Him how her son was doing. Swami told her that he was doing well and there is nothing to worry. Then Swami said that my father had so much confidence in God even from his tender age. Swami continued by saying that all should have faith in God. He said that nobody was as devoted to Him as Sushelamma. Her devotion to Swami had no limits; she was an example of a great devotee.

Swami mentioned about each and every member of our family and how each of them listens and obeys His words with faith and love. He said that it requires the ‘punyam’ (good fortune) of countless previous births to be with Swami. Swami has set our family as an example for others. He spoke continuously without a break or interruption. Swami was very happy when He spoke about our family. And at the end He gave a big smile.

This is how he has recorded the talk.

RadioSai Interview ReferenceRadioSai Videos Reference

Therefore, Basava Premanand blatantly lied about Mr. Venkatamuni. It is apparent that Basava Premanand received inaccurate and embellished information regarding the death of Mr. Venkatamuni. Instead of researching and verifying facts, Basava Premanand blindly believed and publicly published wholly inaccurate information about Venkatamuni’s death as the irrefutable truth.

Basava Premanand cannot provide a scintilla of credible or verifiable evidence to back up his absurd claims that Mr. Venkatamuni was murdered and that the doctors who issued his death certificate were similarly murdered. Basava Premanand is notorious for his frenzied, childish and laughable conspiracy theories against Sathya Sai Baba. Furthermore, Robert Priddy (one of the main spokespersons for the Anti-Sai Movement) widely dispersed Premanand’s gutter accusations about Venkatamuni on his Anti-Sai blog and Anti-Sai websites.

RadioSai’s rebuttal (obtaining a first-hand testimony from Venkatamuni’s son, recorded on video) is another elucidative example that exposes the gutter, smear, hate and defamation campaigns waged against Sathya Sai Baba by critics and ex-devotees.

Well done, RadioSai!

Propaganda Against Sathya Sai Baba Plummets

Propaganda Against Sathya Sai Baba Plummets Graph

Anti-Sai Propaganda Takes A Nose-dive:
As one can easily notice, the number of Anti-Sai propaganda articles (put out by critics, skeptics and ex-devotees) has been steadily declining, year by year, since 2002. This objective information proves that Anti-Sai Activists are waging a losing and lonely battle against Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Organization.

Facts About The Numbers Of Critical Articles Against Sathya Sai Baba:
The graph numbers include:

  1. Multiple and repetitive articles with different links but having the same content.
  2. Articles taken from other online media sources (casually referring to Sathya Sai Baba).
  3. Anonymous postings made on internet forums or discussion groups.
  4. Email correspondence pages.
  5. “Page harvesting” articles. “Page harvesting” is when one article, which is located on one page, is divided into multiple anchor-links (an “anchor-link” being ascribed to a new paragraph or section on the page), making it appear as if there are 5-20 articles, when in fact there is only one.
  6. Prior to 2006, blogged articles were included in the number tallies. Post 2006, blogged articles are no longer being counted because ex-devotees are now creating many blogs through which they repackage and regurgitate their same outdated, repetitive and obsessive stalk material against Sai Baba.

Almost all of these articles (going back to 2000) deal with superficial attacks against Sathya Sai Baba and do not further any of the unsubstantiated allegations of sexual impropriety, fraud, murder, racketeering or any other sort of alleged criminal activity. To Date: Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Organization have never (ever) been charged with any crime, sexual or otherwise. Consequently, these articles are simply Anti-Sai Propaganda.

These article numbers were taken from the ExBaba “News Section”, which contains all of the links (in English) relating to Sathya Sai Baba. The “News Section” also provides links to articles published on other Anti-Sai websites and sources. Therefore, these numbers represent the totality of English articles published against Sathya Sai Baba by former followers, critics, skeptics and those holding an unfavorable view about the Indian Guru.

Year 2006 In Review:
2006 was an eventful year that dealt major blows to the Anti-Sai Movement, which has all but incapacitated Anti-Sai Activists and effectively brought their Anti-Sai Movement to a screeching halt. Anti-Sai Activists are now resorting to redundancy and frothing-at-the-mouth rhetoric to advance their whiny, snippy and bitter arguments against Sathya Sai Baba.

Year 2007 In Review:

Propaganda Against Sathya Sai Baba – In Conclusion:
Anti-Sai Activists are waging a lonely and losing battle against Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Because Anti-Sai Activists have made no leeway against Sai Baba since 1997, they have become more and more desperate, obsessive and bold in their defamations against him. Nevertheless, the objective facts speak for themselves:

  • 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 defendant).

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


Robert Priddy’s Fraudulent UK Sai Baba Organisation Domain

Robert Priddy’s Involvement With A Fraudulent UK Sai Baba Organisation Domain
Recently I was forwarded some links from the website and was shocked to see that the pages contained Anti-Sai material (mostly written by Robert Priddy). The following screencap shows Google’s listings from the domain:


It appears that the webpages were deleted because the domain fraudulently attempted to pass itself off as the official Sathya Sai Seva Organisation in the UK. The official domain for the UK Sathya Sai Service Organisation is

The UK WhoIs domain registry revealed that the person who registered the fraudulent domain did so anonymously on August 16th 2006. The following screencaps show how a couple of the meta-tags on the website list Robert Priddy as being the copyright holder:


Robert Priddy Directly Associated With The Fraudulent Domain:
The following screencaps prove that Robert Priddy is directly and explicitly associated with the fraudulent domain.

Robert Priddy duplicated an article from Barry Pittard on his Anti-Sai website located at:


After 10 seconds, this webpage redirected to (which has subsequently been deleted).


After viewing Robert Priddy’s HTML source code, there is meta-tag ‘refresh’ script that redirects the page directly to the domain. Needless to say, the only person who can insert the meta-tag ‘refresh’ script into the HTML is the owner and creator of the webpage in question. In this case, that owner and creator is Robert Priddy.


Currently, there is no other known Anti-Sai website or ex-devotee associated with the domain besides Robert Priddy. It is also important to point out that by redirecting links to the domain, web-traffic is lost to the old website when it is re-directed to the new website. Why would Robert Priddy redirect his webpage (and thereby his web-traffic) to another domain if that domain is not his?

Robert Priddy’s Clinical Obsession With Sathya Sai Baba
After years of making absolutely no leeway against Sathya Sai Baba, Robert Priddy has begun to gnash his teeth, foam-at-the-mouth and raise a huge cry by duplicating his repetitive Anti-Sai slop on no less than 5 Anti-Sai domains and 1 (so far known) Anti-Sai blog.

As of September 2007, R.C. Priddy wrote 117 blogged articles against Sathya Sai Baba in 8 months. That is one new article every other day for eight months straight! Apparently, Robert Priddy has no other work, is clinically obsessed with Sai Baba and is trapped in his negative projections about his former Guru.

Now, there is proof that Robert Priddy attempted to publish his Anti-Sai material on a bogus and fraudulent UK Sai Baba Organisation domain. Robert Priddy is an Anti-Sai extremist and fanatic who relies on spam, propaganda and deceit because the truth does not argue in his favor. Robert Priddy’s motto and methodology is “deceive the naive”. This tactic may have worked in the past when he and other critics went unchallenged for years, but it isn’t working now.

Robert Priddy is finally being held accountable for his actions and words.

October 26th 2007 Update: & Domains Belong To Robert Priddy
After I emailed Robert Priddy about his involvement with the fraudulent domain, he published the following statement on the index page:


Robert Priddy created yet another Anti-Sai domain at (which mirrors the content on his five other Anti-Sai websites). It is amusing that Robert Priddy attempts to deceive others into thinking that he resides in the UK. He does not. He resides in Oslo Norway. See domain info:

Robert Priddy’s Current/Former Anti-Sai Websites/Blogs


Robert Priddy’s Former Anti-Sai Websites (most deleted for defamatory content):



Robert Priddy Lies Again About Joe Moreno

On Robert Priddy said (under his oxymoronic name “truthpromoter”):

“To defend my reputation in advance it has become necessary to point out how every posting made by any ex-devotee anywhere on the Internet is followed wherever possible by defamatory comments by GM108 or joe108 (Gerald Moreno) fanatical web-stalker who posts links to side-issues, libel and his trivialities daily. Employed full-time doing dirty tricks to defend Sai Baba and his Organisation. He twists the truth to claim that I am stalking HIM, but I have made no blogs about him (as he has about me) nor any webpages against him (which he has on a grand scale against me!). I am simply warning against his libels.”

Click On Thumbnail To Enlarge:no-webpages-lie.gif

Robert Priddy has yet to refute what he calls my “side-issues”, “libel” and “trivialities”. I FULLY reference my articles, unlike Robert Priddy who simply denies, deflects and foams-at-the-mouth (as can be seen by his comments on the screen-cap above). The only person “employed full-time” and using “dirty tricks” to attack Sathya Sai Baba is Robert Priddy (as can be seen on his six Anti-Sai Websites). The reason why I have so many webpages about Robert Priddy is because my thorough documentation of his massive fraudulence is very well established.

Robert Priddy said (about me):

“I have made no blogs about him (as he has about me) nor any webpages against him.”

Needless to say, this is yet another bold-faced untruth from Robert C. Priddy. Take a look at the following webpages where Robert Priddy directly and specifically attacks me. Some of his comments are many paragraphs in length and one webpage anonymously defames me and makes numerous unsupported comments against me:


Robert Priddy created an anonymous website attempting to libel me on angeltowns2 and they terminated his account for defamatory content and for violating their terms and conditions (Refs: 0102). Robert Priddy also attacked me anonymously on the QuickTopic forum using the fake name “bandbox” (Reference). Robert Priddy lied about me on a public forum and I responded to his untruths in my article entitled Robert Priddy And His ‘Babafan’ Lie. In addition to these, Robert Priddy made numerous gutter untruths against me on Wikipedia. See:

Therefore, when Robert Priddy said “I have made no blogs about him (as he has about me) nor any webpages against him”, he lied because his numerous comments, libels and defamations against me are not only published on his Anti-Sai Webpages, they are fully recorded on Wikipedia and other public forums.

Robert Priddy also solicits and promotes the defamatory blog of Sanjay Dadlani (who has been fully exposed for his trashy and kinky killuminati blog, streetbitches blog, his Jesus sex fetish and his QuickTopic Deceptions).

Robert Priddy also promotes Alan Kazlev‘s defamatory pages against me in which he plays the role of bogus psychiatrist (because he has no credentials in the medical or mental health fields). It is also amusing that Robert Priddy promotes Alan Kazlev when Priddy made fun of the “lunatic fringe” often seen in cults and religious movements (Reference).

As I have said many times before, the more Robert Priddy says, the less I have to defend. Robert Priddy makes the case for me that he is a mentally unstable defamer who lies about others unapologetically (all the while harping on morality, ethics and honesty). Robert Priddy stands exposed, humiliated and ashamed, all from his own doing. He has no one else to blame but himself and no amount of deflection, foaming-at-the-mouth and denial will save him now.


Ex-Devotee Of Sathya Sai Baba – More Fraudulence Uncovered

Barry Pittard is a cunning and deceitful individual (with proof) who has become so desperate in his smear-campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba that he is now purposely and maliciously associating news that has nothing to do with Sathya Sai Baba with him.

Just recently, Barry Pittard wrote an article on his Anti-Sai conspiracy blog that said:

Judge warned: Crippling disease won’t stop pervert

Some devotees of Sathya Sai Baba – the ’God’ worshipped by so many of India’s top power brokers (and others beyond) who faces worldwide accusations of large-scale, serial sexual molestation of boys and young men – claim that he could not possibly offend, if he ever did, because of his age and physical incapacity, and that therefore his current accusers are caught in a palpable deceit. L. An Ironside Sai Baba – not one to easily push around. R. Ageing rapist Wayne Chapman still Dangerous. (Boston Herald Photo Pool)They offer no evidence concerning the nature of sexual capacity and ageing. Yet there is a mass of readings on the topic ‘ageing and sex’ in the popular press, let alone a wealth of information from Gerontology and Geriatrics. As ever, the Internet is an abundant source. But why go looking for facts when there is a guru to defend at all costs? And the word ‘costs’ is more than appropriate, since Sai Baba’s worldwide cult has to defend many billions of dollars of investment in its notion that Sai Baba is about to rule the earth. Any dear reader who happens to be a billionaire, watch your money – Sai Baba is a consumate master in extracting it from you – without seeming to want it. See my article: Sai Baba, Kubla Khan, Citizen Kane, Bill Gates et aliaOf course, making Champion of the World may require Sai Baba to take a little more than Viagra or Cialis.Extract from: Judge warned: Crippling disease won‘t stop pervert
By Laurel J. Sweet
Boston Herald. Friday, March 23, 2007
‘Aging and Sick Sex Offender to Be Civilly Committed?Whatever the wisdom of civil commitment laws it would seem that this fellow might qualify. Increasingly, though, the states are going to have to contend with the high cost of health care in keeping aging and sick convicts behind bars.Even though his aging, bloated body is confined to a wheelchair, a judge was warned yesterday a 59-year-old convicted sexual predator remains dangerous to children. A forensic psychologist assured Lawrence Superior Court Judge Howard J. Whitehead that convicted child rapist Wayne Chapman, who bragged he had sexually molested between 50 and 100 boys and even fantasized about killing some of them, “presents a high and unacceptable risk to re-offend.” “It just doesn’t go away,” Christine Schnyder Pierce testified. Chapman, an interstate predator, has been incarcerated for 31 years. Having served his time, he is hoping to retire in Massachusetts, but the Essex District Attorney’s Office is fighting to have Whitehead civilly commit him for life as a “sexually dangerous” person’.”

Barry Pittard also posted a blurb on that said:

Judge warned: Crippling disease won’t stop pervert
Some Sai Baba protagonists claim that he could not possibly sex offend, if he ever did, because of his age and physical incapacity, and that therefore his current accusers are caught in a palpable deceit. Instead of attempting to belittle testimony, they need to look at what Gerontology and Geriatrics have to opine on the topic.”

The only person “caught in palpable deceit” is Barry Pittard, who purposely and maliciously attempted to deceive the general public by making it seem as if a Judge was warned that Sathya Sai Baba was a pervert who had a crippling disease. As a matter of fact, a woman named “Miriam Dunn” (aka “Miridunn”) commented on Barry’s post and was under the impression that the warning pertained to Sathya Sai Baba. Miriam Dunn said:

“Until he is DEAD he poses a threat. Keep him locked up forever.”

It is exactly articles like these that prove that Barry Pittard is an Anti-Sai extremist and fanatic who must rely on deception, misrepresentation, subterfuge and fraudulence to make his case against Sathya Sai Baba because the truth does not argue in his favor. The article in question was not related (directly, indirectly or otherwise) to Sathya Sai Baba whatsoever.

First of all, Sathya Sai Baba has never (ever) been convicted or charged with any crime, sexual or otherwise. Period. Secondly, there is not even one public grievance, police complaint, court case or affidavit that has ever been filed against Sai Baba for pedophilia or child molestation and no critic can provide a scintilla of verifiable evidence to the contrary.

Barry Pittard also claimed that he and other ex-devotees do not slur. Despite this patently absurd claim, Barry Pittard slurred and said of Sai Baba: “Of course, making Champion of the World may require Sai Baba to take a little more than Viagra or Cialis”. For those who do not know, Viagra and Cialis are male-impotence medications that work by enhancing the effects of one of the chemicals the body normally released into the penis during sexual arousal. This increases blood flow into the penis and an erection is the result. That’s right, Barry Pittard (the oh-so-dharmic, non-slurring ex-devotee) is insinuating that Sathya Sai Baba is taking Viagra and Cialis without proof.

Ironically, Barry Pittard (while a devotee of Sai Baba) fathered a son out of wedlock with a 21 year old woman when he was 58 (and old enough to be her Grand-Father). Barry Pittard also performed questionable “kundalini healings” on women when he was a Sai Devotee. Is it of any wonder that Barry Pittard was kicked out of Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram (by his own admission)?

Barry Pittard also attempted to warn people about giving money to Sathya Sai Baba. The Sathya Sai Organization happens to be one of the largest recipients of foreign donations in India. Barry Pittard already made it clear why he is attempting to influence people not give money to Sathya Sai Baba’s charitable organizations. On March 30th 2003, Barry Pittard said:

“I am trusting that one of the effects of our constant Exposure on many levels will be to get into all sorts of nooks and crannies that we cannot even be aware of, and taht this will, for example, increasingly bite into the huge financial contributions, with those who have been donors suddently disappearing from the Sai Trust/Sai Org. arena, along with their disbrusements. Perhaps it is too early-days for this to be happening but, given the enormous extent of our intensive actions, both individual and organised, in the last three years, it must be getting a lot closer. It is what we need to bring about, so that the Sai Empire begins to crumble from many points within its edifice.” (Reference)

On every front, Barry Pittard and Anti-Sai Activists are waging a lonely and losing battle against Sathya Sai Baba. Even after many years of unremitting smear and hate campaigns, vicious defamations, libels, gutter untruths, subterfuge and outright deceit (posted on hundreds of Anti-Sai webpages), Sathya Sai Baba’s charitable Organization is still one of the largest recipients of foreign donations in India. Sathya Sai Baba remains a very popular and well respected Guru who commands great respect and devotion from India’s intellectual elite, including Presidents and Prime Ministers (as well as millions around the globe).

This is not the first time that Barry Pittard has attempted to con the general public with his fraudulent articles. For example, read my previous article about Barry Pittard’s Free-Press-Release About Tim Sullivan. The more Barry Pittard says, the less I have to defend. Barry Pittard compromises his own integrity with every stroke of his poisoned pen. Barry Pittard has lost all crediblity and it is about time everyone can see and verify it for him/her self.
