Update on 11th Feb. 2017: My blog post, http://ravisiyer.blogspot.in/2017/02/my-congratulations-to-muddenahalli.html, has my congratulations to Muddenahalli group leaders for 10 Jan 2017 Nigerian police report clearing them of any criminal or other offence charges. However this Nigerian police report DOES NOT WITHDRAW or REFUTE point 4 of Nigerian police report dated 23rd Nov. 2016 which states "During interrogation, the 4th suspect (D. Madhusudan Rao Naidu) said he is not "light body" and does not receive any message from the late founder, Sri Sathya Sai Baba". end-updateI was forwarded the content of a recent email by Shri Ramesh Hathiramani, Chair, Zone 9A (Africa), Sathya Sai International Organization (SSIO) which had the two images given below of Nigerian police report dated Nov. 23rd 2016 on interrogation of Muddenahalli group in July 2016.
I would like to reproduce in text here, the first sentence of point 4 of the Nigerian police report. "During interrogation, the 4th suspect (D. Madhusudan Rao Naidu) said he is not "light body" and does not receive any message from the late founder, Sri Sathya Sai Baba".
Now I made some inquiry about whether the documents above are genuine and a reliable source confirmed to me that it is genuine (and that is why I decided to put up this post). Presuming the above documents are genuine, what that tells us is STUNNING! The so called communicator, Sai university (SSSIHL) alumnus, Madhusudan Rao Naidu, DENIED to Nigerian police that he receives any messages from Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba!!!!
I would like to draw readers' attention to a Facebook post titled, "Myths Regarding Muddenahalli’s Nigerian Visit Busted! - Sathyameva Jayathe.", https://www.facebook.com/notes/sai-keshav/myths-regarding-muddenahallis-nigerian-visit-busted-sathyameva-jayathe/1220359808007393/, dated Aug. 2nd 2016. The Facebook userid for the post is that of brother Sai Keshav. But the author of the post, right at the top of the post, is mentioned as "B.S.VijayaSai former alumnus and lecturer at SSSIHL". Note that SSSIHL stands for Sai university.
This post gave a very different version of what happened in Nigerian police interaction with Muddenahalli group from what was shared with Sai devotees by Shri Ramesh Hathiramani, Zone chair (Africa), SSIO. [Details of the latter can be viewed in my blog post, SSIO Nigeria document on detention/arrest of Muddenahalli group leaders signed by Africa chair Ramesh Hathiramani, http://ravisiyer.blogspot.in/2016/08/ssio-nigeria-document-on.html, dated August 1st 2016.]
Brother VijaySai B.S. claimed that he had investigated the matter and that this post was the TRUTH based on his investigations. In this post, VijaySai B.S. writes the following about Madhusudan's supposed words to Nigerian police:
Regarding receiving messages from "the Late Baba" [sic] and behaving as if Baba was still around, Madhusudan responded, "Baba is my Guru and God and I too pray to Him for guidance just as millions do. He guides me also, just as He guides other devotees. He is a divine personality and He is always there. I convey the guidance I receive to the people for whom it is meant and it is up to them to follow it or not".
--- end extract of VijaySai B.S. post ---
Ravi: Now there seems to be DIRECT CONTRADICTION between VijaySai's account and the Nigerian police report given above!!! The Nigerian police are saying that Madhusudan Rao Naidu said that he DOES NOT receive any message from Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba! But VijaySai says that Madhusudan told the Nigerian police that he "convey(s) the guidance" he receives to "the people for whom it is meant".
As brother VijaySai is a former alumnus and former faculty of the Sai university and has received a lot of physical proximity and guidance grace from PHYSICAL FORM Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, I think it is brother VijaySai's bounden duty now to both Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and to the Sathya Sai fraterntity to check with Madhusudan Rao Naidu about what the Nigerian police report says, and convey to the Sathya Sai fraternity the response of Madhusudan Rao Naidu (say by a suitable Facebook post).
If Madhusudan Rao Naidu DISPUTES the Nigerian police report that he denied receiving messages from Sathya Sai Baba, let Madhusudan Rao Naidu say so in an official signed document. This is not a small matter. Recently the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, participated via video-link in an inauguration function of a Muddenahalli group free hospital in Haryana, where Madhusudan Rao Naidu was present and where he gave a "discourse" which he claimed, I believe, are the words of so called subtle body of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
Now Madhusudan Rao Naidu may genuinely believe that he is getting messages from Bhagavan (my view is that he may be delusional). But Nigerian police say that he denied that to them! Did Madhusudan Rao Naidu lie to Nigerian police authorities about his so called communicator of so called subtle body claim???? If so, that is a very serious matter.
Madhusudan Rao Naidu should not dodge this matter now. He MUST RESPOND to the Nigerian police report claiming that he denied receiving messages from Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
If Madhusudan Rao Naidu stays silent on this matter then I think we Sathya Sai devotees should try to contact Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and request him to look into this matter where the Nigerian police report says that Madhusudan Rao Naidu has denied that he gets messages from Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, but that the same Madhusudan Rao Naidu even gave what he claims to be a discourse of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in the same function where Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated a free hospital in Haryana recently. I mean, let Sathya Sai devotees as well as top political leaders of the country like PM Modi with whom Muddenahalli group are in touch, know the truth in this matter. Sathyameva Jayate! [Truth alone wins!]
I thank Nigerian police authorities and SSIO Zone chair for Africa, Shri Ramesh Hathiramani for the work they have done in uncovering the truth of the extraordinary, and in my view, FALSE CLAIM, of Madhusudan Rao Naidu of being a so called communicator of a so called subtle body of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
P.S. I feel it is appropriate to inform readers that I sought permission from my elder sister (currently in the USA) to put up this post as it deals with a police report on Muddenahalli group. I requested that this be treated as an exception to my general promise to her of staying away from writing posts on legal and police matters related to Muddenahalli group. She kindly provided me that permission.
