Shashi Tharoor: Next UN Sec-Gen?
But there are some very disturbing facts about Tharoor that should be brought to public attention that relate to his views on Sathya Sai Baba. For a start, Mr. Tharoor wrote a long and flattering article about the Baba for the International Herald Tribune, ignoring the very serious reports of homosexual paedophilia and criminal activities wrought by the same. Recently, a Sai Baba discussion group has recently re-posted this article, apparently in support of his UN bid. DnaIndia has subsequently published a report that questions Tharoor's candidature on this basis among other reasons:
Opposition to Tharoor has also come from an unexpected quarter. Sanal Edamaruku, President of the Indian Rationalist Association, has objected to Tharoor's nomination on grounds that Tharoor had defended Satya Sai Baba and his "miracles'' in the past.
"Tharoor, despite his carefully nurtured image as an intellectual, is a hardcore obscurantist.He does not miss a single opportunity to raise his voice in the paranormal claims of godmen and miracle mongers,'' the association said in a statement.
The prevailing view among the Indian (and overseas) political intelligentsia is that he will not achieve the post, and a good thing too. We do not support or endorse paedophilia and murder apologists for the responsible position of the United Nations Secretary-General.
