Silent witness approach to Asathya & Adharma actions of Madhusudan Naidu by Sai schools & university, & its alumni, is their failure

Given below are some comments of mine from this recent Facebook post, :

Vr Ganti sir, Swami's students (alumni) who serve in Prasanthi Nilayam system seem to have got squeezed by multiple pressures. Earlier itself before Mahasamadhi, they rarely spoke in public without Bhagavan's permission. They are conditioned to obey orders of Prasanthi Nilayam bosses on matters dealing with public contact. Further, they have strong emotional ties to Prasanthi Nilayam system and so perhaps have some fear of strong action being taken against them by Prasanthi Nilayam bosses if they say something PN bosses view as inappropriate in public.

Silence in public has always been a safe way to survive in PN system.

Now, it is many alumni who are supporting Muddenahalli group and whose communicator, Madhusudan Naidu, is himself an alumni! So any alumni who speak publicly against Muddenahalli group are asking for trouble from other alumni who support Muddenahalli group.

I think that is why almost all alumni who are serving in Prasanthi Nilayam system prefer to stay silent in public on Muddenahalli group. A few that spoke critically of Muddenahalli group in public in the past may have done it on instructions from PN bosses or at least after getting appropriate permission from PN bosses.

To me, the biggest problem in this matter is the silence from Sai university on Madhusudan Rao Naidu. They have failed in this matter. If Sai university itself chooses to be silent about this betrayal by its alumnus, then as they say, Yatha Raja Tatha Praja (As is the king, so are the subjects), leads others also to stay silent.

Vr Ganti sir, As you have once again, in your recent post, (verbally) attacked a trustee of SSSCT and close relative at physical form level of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, on matters unrelated to SSSCT, but which you use to argue against his position as SSSCT trustee, I am afraid I am not in a position to continue my interactions with you.

My stand on SSSCT trustees is that it is fair for the Sai fraternity on social media to raise queries about their role and actions as SSSCT trustees. It is inappropriate for us to meddle into their business, investment or other affairs unrelated to their responsibilities as SSSCT trustees.

Vr Ganti sir, I will say this much. I agree with you that barring a very few, almost all of the students who have studied in Sai schools and Sai university have chosen to stay publicly silent on this matter of a fellow Sai student imitating some aspects of our beloved Lord, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and misguiding thousands of Sathya Sai devotees across the world. And that silent witness approach to Asathya & Adharma being done by Madhusudan Rao Naidu supported by Narasimhamurthy, has contributed IMMENSELY to Muddenahalli group gaining support. I have to accept your view that the Sai school & university alumni community at large, barring a very few exceptions, have failed in this matter. I mean, it is not fine and not acceptable to be like Bhismacharya and Dronacharya and keep quiet when this Asathya & Adharma of Madhusudan Rao Naidu and Narasimhamurthy is happening in front of them.

Whatever problems these alumni may have with Prasanthi Nilayam system or top people managing Prasanthi Nilayam or top people managing official Sai orgn, no level of such problems can justify support for Madhusudan Rao Naidu misguding thousands of Sathya Sai devotees using the name of Sathya Sai. If some alumni don't like top people of PN system or official Sai orgn, they can always group together and form a separate charitable trust and do service to people but without any of this communicator/medium stuff as that goes completely against the teachings & instructions of Sathya Sai.

I should also say that the Indian Sai orgn. seems to have managed to not get too impacted by this, though Karnataka Sai orgn. may have had some impact. It is so nice to see that while Sai schools & university alumni have got totally divided on this matter, Indian Sai orgn. has shown its maturity. Kudos to Indian Sai orgn. for this spiritual maturity they have demonstrated.
