Sai Baba in Govt. Blacklist Imbroglio

After commenting on the soon-to-be-enacted Maharashtra Eradication of Black Magic and Evil and Aghori Practices Bill 2005, it appears that MoneyControl heeded our advice and made significant changes to their article, namely specifying Sathya Sai Baba as the anxious party (rather than the lond-dead Shirdi Sai) and publishing a photo of the Baba. Furthermore, all references to 'Sai Baba' in the article have been changed to 'Sathya Sai Baba' to clearly denote which Baba is being referred to.

That deserves a round of applause.

The Bill has received more than it's fair share of criticism as previously reported, mainly on the grounds that the criterion and terms of "black magic" and other quack witch doctory are too broad and not specific enough. "Why Satya Sai Baba is in danger of being blacklisted?" is now being carried by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti where the organisation protests against the bill on the grounds that it is being pushed through by a group of rationalists calling themselves 'Andha Sraddha' ('Blind Faith').

Just a few days ago, a critical guest editorial was published in News Today by M.V. Kamath (a Shirdi Sai Baba book author) wherein he states: "A Bill ... was recently passed by the Lower House of the Maharashtra State Assembly and is due to be passed by the Upper House as well ... Sai Baba is reported to make magic. Would he come under the definition of a quack or a con-man out to fool the gullible public?"
