Aravind Balasubramanya, Sai student & Radio Sai writer, publicly refutes being SILENT Muddenahalli supporter

In his recent Facebook post (dated May 3rd, 2016), A PUBLIC STATEMENT ABOUT THE #MUDDENAHALLI NONSENSE!, https://www.facebook.com/notes/aravind-balasubramanya/public-statement-on-muddenahalli-happenings-dharma-sansthapanarthaya-sambhavami-/10209700208686062, Aravind Balasubrmanya writes:

I have come to know of various efforts by different individuals to portray me as someone who is 'silently supporting' the self-appointed successor to our dear #SathyaSai - the so called 'Sukshma Baba' who is invisible and non-existent, yet seems to need money, cars, food - everything in the physical domain.
...
I am totally against what is happening in the name of “Sukshma Baba” at Muddenahalli. It pains my heart as much as forgery, corruption or scandal pain my heart. It pains even more sometimes because it is being done in the name of the personal God who I continue to worship.
...
..I am clear which side I am on - the side of my Lord, Sri Sathya Sai.
And He has clearly told me,

“Keep away from Muddenahalli (the Sukshma Baba MDH).”
--- end short extracts from Aravind's FB post ---

Ravi: I congratulate brother Aravind Balasubramanya for his clear rebuttal of any rumours that he is a SILENT support of Muddenahalli FALSE BELIEF (in Madhusudan Rao Naidu, who claims to see and act as so-called communicator of a so called subtle body of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba based in Muddenahalli).

Further, Aravind like brother Satyajit Salian earlier, has shared with us the interactions he had with former warden of Sai university Shri B.N. Narasimhamurthy (BNN). I congratulate and applaud Aravind for this sharing. In short, Aravind initially was supportive of BNN's efforts (like opening schools based on supposed Swami dream instructions). In 2013 BNN called Aravind to visit Muddenahalli group and give a talk which led to Aravind going over to Muddenahalli and sharing his blessed student-experiences with Swami, with a group of devotees which included Singapore Muddenahalli group devotees.

Very interestingly, Aravind also writes that "many seniors" of Prasanthi Nilayam questioned him why he was supporting a divisive trend in Swami's organization. At that time though, Aravind felt that there was nothing wrong in what BNN was doing.

Over the later months, Aravind writes that he realized that the (supposed Swami instructions) dreams (that BNN was getting) were related to the vision of Shri Madiyala Narayana Bhat, founder of Loka Seva Trust. Essentially, I guess, Aravind stopped believing that BNN's dreams were Swami dream instructions. He then repented having given his earlier talk at Muddenhalli (to Muddenahalli group; note that SSSIHL has a university campus at Muddenahalli which now is COMPLETELY UNRELATED to Muddenhalli group activities). He also removed the article he wrote about it (and its translations).

I hope that other Sai university alumni who are employed in Prasanthi Nilayam institutions and who had got initially attracted to Muddenahalli FALSE BELIEF, follow the example of brother Aravind Balasubramanya and PUBLICLY share their initial belief in Muddenahalli group claims and later realizations that they were (and are) false claims. We all make mistakes in our spiritual journey. So I think there is nothing dishonourable in PUBLICLY sharing such experiences. In fact, it will help others realize the truth about Muddenahalli group and be a GREAT SERVICE to the official Sathya Sai movement in India and worldwide, which does not accept any communicator or any medium and, in this post-Mahasamadhi phase goes by the direct heart-to-heart connection between the devotee and Bhagavan.

In this context, I have to say that I was told sometime in 2015 by a Muddenahalli group supporter that most teachers of Sai university from Prasanthi Nilayam had visited Muddenahalli (meaning they had "audience" with so-called communicator, Madhusudan Rao Naidu after he went public with his claims in mid-2014). So far, no Sai university teacher has publicly said ANYTHING WHATSOEVER on the Muddenahalli FALSE BELIEF matter. I find that, to be polite, very, very strange.

I do hope that some Sai university teachers will PUBLICLY share their experiences regarding Muddenahalli FALSE BELIEF, including interactions with Shri B.N. Narasimhamurthy and Madhusudan Rao Naidu, like how brother Satyajit Salian and brother Aravind Balasubramanya have done.
