Rising Opposition To Shashi Tharoor
"Is the rationalists’ association simply grabbing a bit of the spotlight? Should Tharoor’s personal views on godmen and women be held against him? By sponsoring his candidature, has India done a disservice to the scientific outlook enshrined in India’s Constitution? Or is this just much ado about nothing? On the other hand, if the Sai Baba really has those magical powers, as Tharoor claims, can he pull off his disciple’s win?"
Sai Baba Exposed suggests that, for reasons mentioned previously, Shashi Tharoor is not a fit candidate for the job due to his alarming and deliberate ignoring of reports about Sai Baba's nefarious behaviour.
IndiaDaily correctly observes that, due to Tharoor's leaning towards the Baba, it "does compel people like us to take stock of the man’s mind and his irrational beliefs. Those beliefs might not be a factor when dispensing duties, but then, charlatans like Sathya Sai Baba will get major boost with the patronage of such a high-profile figure such as the Secretary General of the United Nations."
Precisely our concerns too. Sai Baba's shunning by UNESCO in 1999 is very well documented and we fear that Tharoor's accession to the coveted UN seat will effect a significant turnaround. The Puttaparthi Propaganda Machine will eat up every last bit of it and trumpet their own horns for years. This could be the big break which Sai Baba is waiting for, the time when he finally blasts himself onto the world stage. Considering his state of health, we predict that any such blast will be substituted by embarrassing tottering with the aid of a wheelchair or zimmer frame, whichever is approved of by the image consultants.
