Shashi Tharoor: Next UN Sec-Gen?

Quite a hoo-ha surrounding Shashi Tharoor's candidature for the UN Secretary-General position after Kofi Annan vacates the position later this year. In some ways he looks the ideal man for the job on account of his long experience of working for the UN, and I personally like the idea of a fellow Indian achieving and working in a top job such as that.

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.

  • That's a pretty damning inditement - and very worrying. Certainly on the face of it, it would seem that any connection with Sai Baba would make this man fairly unfit for high office.

  • Hi William,

    yes you are right. Further, Sai Baba has a very long history of wielding influence over top politicans in India. For example, former Indian Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao was indicted on charges of corruption and received a suspended jail sentence. Former Indian PM A.B. Vajpayee also defended Sai Baba from strong accusations of homosexual paedophilia and the like, not to mention the fact that a number of Supreme Court Justices are his devotees.

    If Tharoor's bid is successful, one can only imagine what a big break for Sai Baba this would be; his first try at wielding influence in international politics. It is an extremely worrying situation for the world if nothing else.
