||SAI CONTROVERSY - EMAILS SENT/RECEIVED
Anti-Sai Activist’s superficially praise honest and open communication policies and blame the Sri Sathya Sai Organization of:
- ...“not replying to emails addressed to them by people with critical questions or complaints”
- ...“criticisms that are neither addressed nor refuted, but suppressed”
- ...“ignoring and failing to give answers”
- ...“when answers are actually forthcoming, they are usually either evasive, irrelevant or direct the questioner to carry out self-examination, etc.”.
Even though Anti-Sai Activist’s suggest that honest and open communication policies are the best policies, they miserably fail when it comes to their own communication policies.
Usually when someone points out the faults and short-comings of others, those who point out such faults follow a more honest and sincere path (contrasting themselves with those who do not). Although ex-devotees accuse the Sathya Sai Organisation of dishonesty and secrecy in their dealings with the general public and with those who “ask the great majority of pertinent questions”, ex-followers (from my own e-mail communication with them) have acted in the very same manner and style as those who they accuse of such reprehensible behavior.
Anti-Sai Activist’s have also said:
“In the open and pluralistic world, as opposed to a soviet-style control of all information from the top, organisations without a two-way and sincere interface with the public cannot have notable success in the long term”.
However, Anti-Sai Activist’s maintain “soviet-style control” over their own websites, online petition and guestbook. They put on the facade of being sincere and open to constructive criticism. They are not. Whenever anyone brings factual inconsistencies to their attention, character assassination is the preferred method of response. When answers are actually forthcoming from critics, their replies are irrelevant or evasive. This is the very same demeanor that critics find repulsive and hypocritical with Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Organization.
Ex-Devotees refuse to address my “pertinent” questions and concerns regarding their lies, deceit and dishonesty against Sathya Sai Baba. They ignore my “critical questions or complaints” and fail to give answers. The email correspondence on this website is meant to highlight the fact that Anti-Sai Activists not only act contrary to their beliefs in honest and open communication policies, they follow in the exact same footsteps of those who they accuse of dishonesty and deceit.
