Criticizing Indian Gurus and Religious Leaders. A
I do not say that exposing of religious leaders in India
cannot occur, but that that the wall against it is extremely
formidable. It is the more difficult when a guru - as is the
case with Sai Baba - has been able to convince both elites and
masses that he is God incarnate.
Indian Rationalists and Humanists
Given the depth of this taboo on criticizing Indian religious
leaders, it is perhaps, often enough, to rationalist or humanist
critics that we may need to look if we have some hope of
uncovering even a few religious scandals in India. Leaving aside
what may be the rights and the wrongs of the issue, the fact
that a Hindu pontiff, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi
of Kanchi could be arrested for implication in a temple murder,
may indicate that, perhaps amazingly, things are changing in
vastly tradition-bound India. Even so, in passing, I raise the
question whether he would have been arrested if the charges had
related to child abuse instead of murder.
