Godman or Conman?
GM : An article re-hashing the same points over and over. This article talks about Basava Premanand, who is well known for spreading lies and conspiracy theories, against SSB. B. Premanand also repeats the lie that, "SSB was the only key witness to the events that night". Premanand does not know this. He is speculating as can be seen on my article about Basava Premanand's conspiracy theory about the murders of 1993.
Reply: Gèrald Morèno very welll knows that I am not the author of the article in question, he is an adept in faking even published newspaper articles fully knowing that the people who read his articles in the Deception series will not probe deeper as they are taught to believe everything SSB and people like he tells them. He states that B.Premanand repeats the lies that, "SSB was only key witness to the events that night".
My Response: Of course I knew that Premanand was not the author to this article. That is why I said, "This article talks about Basava Premanand". The article was written by Tanya Datta. However, my comment was not based solely on this article. Rather, it was based on both this article and Premanand's own words from the Secret Swami Documentary. Since the quote was mistyped, I corrected it. It now reads: "An article re-hashing the same points over and over. This article talks about Basava Premanand, who is well known for spreading lies and conspiracy theories, against SSB. B Premanand also repeats the lie that, SSB was "one of the key witnesses to the events of that night". Premanand does not know this. He is speculating as can be seen on my article about Basava Premanand's conspiracy theory about the murders in 1993." I accidentally typed "the only key witness" instead of "one of the key witnesses". However, this does not change my opinion that Premanand lied about SSB being a "witness". He does not know that. That is his sheer speculation. Click Here to view the correction.
I have no idea what Premanand is talking about when he said, "he is an adept in faking even published newspaper articles". Premanand does not cite which "newspaper articles" I supposedly "faked". This accusation is totally unfounded and a bold-faced lie. What is amusing about this accusation is that all of the newspaper articles I cited (on my pages about Priddy and Premanand's conspiracy theories) were actually taken directly from Anti-Sai Sites! If Premanand claims that newspaper articles were "faked", he is actually casting aspersions on Anti-Sai Activists and accusing them of "faking" newspaper articles! Premanand accuses me with no proof (which is the same thing he does with Sathya Sai Baba). The newspaper articles I cited were taken from the following page (located on the largest Anti-Sai Site on the internet, hetnet.nl/~ex-baba):
How he reads this from the article 'Sai Baba : God-man or Con-man?' is known only to him. What is stated by Miss Tanya Datta is: "He was outraged that Sai Baba - one of the key witnesses to the events of that night - had not been questioned ". In GM's eyes "one of the key witnesses" got changed to "was the only key witness". He seems to be so sure that all Pro SSB followers accept things without verification just like he does.
My Response: My comment about Premanand saying that SSB was the "only key witness" was actually based on the Secret Swami Documentary. Premanand failed to remember his own words, recorded on video. The BBC transcript reads: "BASAVA PREMANAND: Rationalist & Author: The only person who was a witness to the murders of mysterious deaths, that was Sai Baba and he was not examined as, for evidence at all and those students also who were there, two or three students they were not examined at all." [Secret Swami, BBC Text Transcript: 10.46.51]
Consequently, Premanand did say the "only person who was a witness to the murders of mysterious deaths, that was Sai Baba". Consequently, my comments were 100% true although the quote I provided was mistyped. Unlike Anti-Sai Sites, I promptly corrected the typo.
His conspiracy theory on the murders of 1993 has already been refuted by me with proof.
My Response: What "conspiracy theory"? I never wrote a "conspiracy theory" about the 1993 police shootings. As a matter of fact, it is impossible to write about it when no one knows what really happened. I simply pointed out the many problems in Premanand and Priddy's conspiracy theories. Consequently, this comment, by Premanand, is totally unfounded. Furthermore, Premanand does not refute any of my disagreements with his speculations about the 1993 police shootings. Click Here to read my article that discusses the many problems with Premanand's wild speculations regarding the incidents that occurred on June 6th 1993.
It is surprising that GM had nothing to state about other matters published in the article except to fraudulently change the word "one of the key witnesses" to "was the only key witness"! His attempts at deception are futile, though crafty! I challenge Gèrald Morèno to prove other matters in the article are false. I know for sure that he will fail even to refute one paragraph honestly.
My Response: I corrected the mistype. Unlike Anti-Sai Activists, I correct any errors I make when it it brought to my attention. Premanand seems to be repeatedly making the case that he did not say SSB was the "only key witness". However, I have indisputably shown that Premanand said exactly that (albeit, not in the God-man/Con-man article). Premanand said that SSB was the "only person who was a witness to the murders of mysterious deaths". My comments were based on this background information from the Secret Swami Documentary.
My site actually provides voluminous amounts of information, about alleged sexual abuse victims, that has been purposely suppressed from the general public. Click Here to read my Witnesses Section, that discusses the testimonies of alleged sexual abuse victims.
Regarding Premanand's "deception", Click Here to view screen captures to SaiPetition.net, Robert Priddy's Ex-Office Bearers Page and the BBC text to the Secret Swami Documentary. Basava Premanand personally made a submission to SaiPetition.net (which was subsequently replicated on Robert Priddy's Ex-Office Bearers Page) stating that he was a follower of Sri Sathya Sai Baba from 1968 to 1974 and was the "best worker in the SSB Org., Podanur". However, in the Secret Swami Documentary, Basava Premanand claimed that he was never a follower and had been trying to investigate SSB since 1968 itself. To further this argument, Click Here to read an article that was published in the The Independent, on December 24th 2000, where it was claimed that Premanand had "spent nearly 50 years touring Indian villages, drawing crowds of people by demonstrating how "miracles" are performed". When this article was written, Premanand was 71 (he was born in 1930). Consequently, Premanand had been exposing gurus since the age of 21 or 22. This means that in 1968 (at the age of 38, or 16 years after he was a rationalist) Premanand was not a follower of SSB. Why did Premanand lie?
