FEMALES not allowed in politics ?!

A small update to the earlier blog about Sai Baba's urging of his devotees to not enter politics. That Newindpress article was apparently dated the 24th November and referred to a speech given on "Women's Day" in Puttaparthi.

I now find that an article dated 19th November on AndhraCafe suggests that the precious advice was meant for women!

Sri Sathya Sai Baba today advised women not to enter politics and waste their precious lives. He said that politics today have become much debased and are ruining society.

He was speaking on the World women’s Day celebration at Prashanthi Nilayam at Puttaparthy. He said that women should take an active interest in welfare activities and work towards the betterment of society.

This is not the first time Sai Baba has communicated sexist rhetoric. A while ago Prof. Anil Kumar revealed that Sai Baba's advice for women was to simply cook and look after their husbands. More on that when I unearth the reference.

Judging from Sai Baba's sage advice, I guess he thinks little of the contributions of Sirimavo Bandaranaike, Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, Chandrika (Bandaranaike) Kumaratunga, Condoleezza Rice, Sonia Gandhi, and more recently, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. It is actually unbelievable to think that an individual who did not even pass high school considers his advice to be worthy of due attention.
