Sai Baba Terrorism Failures

Today (11th July 2006) a tragic bomb blast rocked the city of Mumbai, India. At the time of writing, 174 people are confirmed dead with a further 485 people suffering serious injuries. See eyewitness reports. Pending the results of initial inquiries and referring to reports from other sources, the style and modus operandi of the blasts (targeting of public transport systems in rush hour for maximum casualties, synchronised bomb attacks) indicate that the event is to be treated as a terrorist incident and suspected to have been carried out by Al-Qaeda agents.

Sai Baba EXPOSED! unequivocally condemns acts of terrorism and our hearts go out to the dead, the injured, the otherwise-affected and all of their families.

Shivraj Patil, a former Lok Sabha speaker, a Sai devotee and the Union Home Minister in the current Manmohan Singh government, read out the following statement on behalf of the Prime Minister:

"The series of blasts in Jammu and Kashmir and in Mumbai are shocking and cowardly attempts to spread a feeling of fear and terror among our citizens," said the statement. "My heart reaches out and grieves for all those affected by these blasts and who have lost their near and dear. I condemn these shameful acts aimed at our peace loving people," it added.

According to BBC News: "Home Minister Shivraj Patil told reporters authorities had 'some' information an attack was coming, 'but place and time was not known'."

Although no comments from Sai Baba have yet been reported, we have seen the following comment from a devotee:

"As one having a residence in Mumbai the news of death of hundreds of people on account of bomb blasts in MUMBAI`s suburban trains by some extremist outfits not only pains me very much but also spurs me to wonder as to why despite our LOVING Swami, as an Avatar, living bodily in our country such violent and barbarious acts of violence are taking place. Swami`s message of Sarva Dharma Samatvam, Ahimsa, Shanti, Love etc. etc. do not seem to make any impact on the perpetrators such heinous crimes."

We may well ask the same, and go even further to state this as yet another tragic example of Sai Baba's failure as regarding his numerous excuses of setting his own backyard in order before solving the world's problems at large. Despite this rare flash of critical thinking regarding the actuality of Sai Baba's role in the world, this devotee proceeded to stick his head back into the sand with his next few remarks: "Let us all pray sincerely to Swami with a pure mind that Swami may give sadbuddhi [good intelligence] to all so that such catastrophic killings are not repeated by anybody or by a group of persons. May Swami be instrumental for bringing about transformation in those Terrorists."

Pass the bucket.

For this atrocity to happen the day after the festival of Guru Poornima itself casts doubts upon the ability of Sai Baba to warn and protect his own country from terrorism, despite his frequent meetings with Cabinet ministers and other government representatives.
