On 17 June the British television channel BBC2 broadcast Secret Swami, an hour-long documentary on the life, tricks and alleged sexual exploits of Satya Sai Baba.
Long accused of paedophilia and trickery, Sai Baba has never been properly interrogated by the police after six murders took place in his bedroom.
He enjoys unique immunity from the law, as is witnessed in the interview with Murli Manohar Joshi, India’s then Union Minister for Human resources Development. For the first time, the retired Director General of Police V P B Nair went on record stating that the police version of the murders committed in cold blood was not true, and a father and son who had separate sexual encounters with Satya Sai Baba reveal that he took advantage of their youth and vulnerability.
The documentary had considerable input from IHEU and some of its member organizations in India during production, and prominently features B Premanand and Professor Narendra Nayak, leaders of the IHEU member organization India CSICOP.
