Here's a good overview of why it makes sense to raise questions about the financial affairs involving the guru of Radha Soami Satsang Beas, Gurinder Singh Dhillon.
It was written by Spence Tepper, who left the following comment on a recent blog post. I like the logical, reasonable way Tepper laid out the reasons concerns have been raised about those financial affairs in the Indian business press.
As he says, other people might draw different conclusions from the facts known to date. That's fine. And as more facts come out, other conclusions can be reached.
Here's links to some of the stories in the business press:
I've corrected a few typos in the comment. Otherwise, what follows is how it was written.
All this is only to support an open mind, and encourage the courts to investigate thoroughly. There already is the court judgements and the FDA judgments against the Singh brothers. Those are thoroughly documented.
Now we have the Luthra investigations and those of the Fortis board, and others, into illegal loans, and the terminations of the Singh brothers. Those are matters of record.
Next are the $400M in unauthorized and uncollateralized loans to the Dhillons basically embezzled from the Fortis hospital system. And finally that those Dhillon loans were never paid, but serviced by creating new loans based on collateral of the Dhillons in part based on the artificial value bolstered by the prior loans.
When you look at all the information, you see that one individual funded the expansion from the trusts into Religare, mentored the Singh brothers, signed his wife and family members as principles in a number of new shell companies, including the Fortis healthcare acquisition, and then promoted the Singhs as principles at Fortis : Gurinder Singh Dhillon.
The legality of all this is up to the courts. The atribution of blame is up to the courts.
But the ethics of nepotism involved, of siphoning and embezzlement, of illegal leveraged loans on top of leveraged loans, and the business entity whose name is the center of all of this is well supported: Gurinder Singh Dhillon.
Such activists have nothing to do with being a Sant Sat Guru. Is devotion to saving souls really just a sideline? All that I was taught by Maharaji, by Sawan and Jaimal Singh, says the opposite. Love of the lord is the single occupation of the Saints.
You might draw a different conclusion. It is your right to do so.
And if any of this is actually Baba Ji's intention, it is not to throw off those who accept their responsibility to make their own decision, regardless of the outcome. It is to throw off those who cling to superstitious myths, so attached to their salvation they cannot let any risk enter in, even relinquishing their dignity as adults.
Yes, this may be part of Baba Ji's plan. Though you would have to go within to see it. And the plan is the destruction of the religion that RSSB had become, and the corrupt financial institution that is the current RSSB.
Who better to do this than the Master?
