Meenakshi Srikanth’s Smear Campaigns Against Sathya Sai Baba:
Shri Unni Krishnan was a student at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute Of Higher Learning and personally knew all the details regarding Meenakshi Srikanth. Meenakshisundaram Srikanth was expelled from the Sathya Sai Baba’s Institute in 1989 during the final year of his Bachelors degree. Several other students in Meenakshi’s circle of friends were permanently expelled for propagating defamatory rumors and gossip against Sathya Sai Baba (mostly taken from Tal Brooke and Basava Premanand). After Meenakshi Srikanth tearfully pleaded not be expelled, the Institute authorities allowed him to complete his degree (so that his career prospects would not be jeopardized and his parents would not be shamed) under the agreement that he would cease talking ill of Sathya Sai Baba. Meenakshi agreed. Meenakshi Srikanth was provided three years of quality education free of cost at Sai Baba’s College.
After Meenakshi Srikanth graduated from Sai Baba’s Institute of Higher Learning, he vengefully wrote his articles against Sai Baba and purposely withheld the fact that he had been expelled for spreading the very same rumors and gossip he decided to repeat on the internet. Meenakshi Srikanth now lives a prosperous life in Virginia with his family due to the free education and Bachelor’s degree he received at Sai Baba’s prestigious college (which opened the door for him to receive further studies in the USA). In a clarificatory post, Meenakshi Srikanth admitted that he was expelled from the Institute on Republic day 1989 and was taken back into the institute the next day. Meenakshi Srikanth withheld this information because he felt it was not his “motive” and “felt it was irrelevant to the discussion”.
All of Meenakshi Srikanth’s allegations against Sai Baba were based on rumor, gossip, hearsay and unsupported and unverifiable second-hand stories. Meenakshi Srikanth was never sexually abused but he interpreted everything students said about their interviews with a perverse sexual slant (which Ex-Devotees are notorious for doing).
Although Meenakshi Srikanth originally made his posts on the soc.culture.tamil group in 1993, they were actually published on and referenced to rense.com in 2000 (because Said Afshin Khorramshahgol’s website was deleted for some unknown reason). David Bailey (author of The Findings) contacted Jeff Rense and had him post Meenakshi’s story on his rense.com website (original reference was mysteriously blocked on archive.org: Ref but can still be found at: home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/articles/badugly.html). Rense.com is a website that celebrates Ernst Zundel (calling him a “modern day Galileo”). Ernst Zundel had run Samisdat Publishers, one of the largest distributors of Nazi and neo-Nazi propaganda and memorabilia in the world. Why David Bailey would contact a purported Anti-Semite to push Meenakshi Srikanth’s material is unclear.
In a post dated July 14th 2003, Meenakshi Srikanth claimed he was the recipient of the “President of India’s gold medal for ‘overall excellence and exemplary conduct’ at the University of Hyderabad this year’. Needless to say, Srikanth had been residing in the USA since October 1992 and was even posting in Google Groups from his residence in Oregon, USA in November 1992 (Ref). So how exactly did Meenakshi Srikanth obtain an award in India in 1993 when he was residing in the USA since 1992?
