San Francisco, California (KP) – After learning of the planned arrival of “Baba” Maan Sinh in California, the sangat here decided to confront the baba regarding the serious allegations leveled against him over the last several years. The Baba was set to arrive at San Francisco from London Heathrow at 2 P.M. on Sunday, July 2nd via Virgin Atlantic flight 019.

Upon arrival at the airport, Panthic Weekly staff noted that many of the Baba’s associates had gathered at the gates, carrying garlands of flowers and bouquets. Similarly, the local sangat had also gathered with signs and were prepared to greet the Baba with a garland of shoes, considered to be highly insulting.

The protest signs displayed such messages as “Bayee-Maan Baba,” “Bheki, Kaami Saadh (Showoff pervert ‘saint’),” “Baba Maan = Rapist Thief, Child Molestor, Hypocrite,” and “Thug! GO HOME!”

As the two parties converged at the expected gate of Baba’s arrival, the Baba’s associates began to throw a fit at the presence of the protesting sangat carrying their signs. The Baba’s followers spoke rudely and unsuccessfully attempted to barricade the protestors from greeting the Baba. The Baba's followers initially attempted to thwart the Sangat’s protest with physical and verbal abuse, but were overwhelmed by the Panthic sevadaars, and could not succeed.

Surprisingly, the most vocal supporters of the Baba were women themselves, even though the vast majority of his victims are women. The protestors said that this was obviously a publicity stunt by his followers, and indicated they were unwilling to address the serious allegations of rape and sexual abuse on helpless women by the Baba.

The situation became tenser as the Baba’s associates became increasingly aggressive towards Sangat members and media staff due to the presence of cameras documenting the event. After some time, the Baba’s followers began to mislead police officials asking that the safety of the Baba be ensured. However, the Sangat remained calm and peaceful as over a dozen police officers converged at the gate. After quite some time had passed, the Baba still had not appeared, while the sangat waited to question him regarding his actions.

“108 Brahmgyani Mahapursh” runs with his tail between his legs

As the Sangat waited at the airport for the Baba to emerge, the police presence continued to grow with the increased nervousness of his followers. A few key followers quickly disappeared while the others began to argue with the protesting sangat. Panthic Weekly was later informed by the police that he was taken out of a back exit because he was unwilling to face the Sangat. The police presence dissipated as the Baba’s followers’ mobile phones began to ring.

They left just as quickly as the police. The sangat continued holding up signs, and the garland of shoes made especially for Baba. Once it was announced that the Baba fled the scene, they let out a loud jakara, or victory slogan. Sangat members announced that the Baba was so ashamed of his actions, that he could not face the questoning sangat even for a few seconds.

This is perhaps the first time that Mann Sinh Pehova faced such strong opposition from landing at the airport to setting up programs at the Gurdwaras. All major Gurdwaras in California have rejected the Baba due to the serious allegations he is facing. One Gurdwara committee member stated to Panthic Weekly that "...even if there was only one complaint against this Baba, we would not allow him. Currently he is facing an onslaught of allegations from all sides, so this Baba has no place on the Panthic stage unless he clears himself."

Serious Allegations

Some of the allegations, leveled against the Baba include horrific injustices such as rape, molestation, fraud, money laundering, drug abuse and self-appointed gurudom. Panthic Weekly has received evidence including signed affidavits of victims, audio recordings of former close associates, and even letters from Sikh Societies and Gurudwaras requesting the United States government to deny his Visa. According to a tipster, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security, is currently looking into these matters.

One affidavit from a young lady in Toronto, tells the story of how she was cornered in a bathroom by the Baba, “He placed his hand on my genitals and asked me to grab him. I pulled my hand back instantly and refused. [I] asked him, ‘What are you doing? This is wrong.’ He replied ‘I am testing your faith and I am extremely happy that you passed the test.’ He then hugged me tightly, I felt extremely sick to the stomach. He then opened the bathroom door and asked me to leave. This incident broke my faith. I was confused disgusted and scared. I could not confide in anyone, not even my husband.”

Before this incident, she was a devout follower of the Baba along with her husband.

Maan Baba’s former personal assistant, in a written statement, provides some insight, “This hypocrite never got married, he manipulates the sangat’s sisters and daughters and violates their honor.”

Another affidavit from a woman in India speaks of her horrific rape at the hands of this con-man, “ One day…Sant Baba Maan Singh called me to his resting room and he tried to seduce me. When I refused him strongly, he raped me, I…strongly opposed.”

After his reprehensible act, he became concerned that she may tell somebody, “He got scared…Then he offered me a lot of temptations. He said he would get my sisters married abroad. He would financially support my family, like he would deposit Rs. 10 Lakhs (1 Million) in my name and make me the principal of Jallandhar academy.”

These are just two examples of many such documented incidents. There are many others who have yet to come forward out of fear of retribution from the Baba's armed henchmen.

Derisive Mocking of Sikh Religious Values

The former assistant , Sahib Singh narrated a number of incidents in which this “great holy man” mocked, dishonored and disregarded the Sikh religion and its core values and beliefs.

After the Baba took a bath, a “close devotee, who used to call him Krishan Bhagwan (The Lord Krishna), was asked to wring out his wet soiled Kacherra (undershorts) and make tea from the resulting water. They were told to come and drink the “Amrit” (sacred nectar/baptismal water)” made from his Kacherra.

This incident is not the only example of his complete disregard for Sikh principles and ceremonies. The assistant narrated another example when “a man with a severe sinus headache asked the Baba for relief.”

The Baba replied, “‘if you want the pain to go away, listen to my one request.’ The hypocrite then took him to his bathroom and said, ‘drink the water from the toilet and this 'Amrit' will cure you.’”

He has also been accused worldwide of sending “Amrit” in bottles for do-it-yourself amrit sanchars (baptismal ceremonies), he also conducts amrit sanchars that do not comply with Panthic norms.

The assistant asks, “Should this person call himself a sant? Does he have a right to sit on stage and preach to others?”

“[He] broke my faith,” said the young lady from Toronto.

Instead of addressing the allegations against the Baba, his followers state these are just attmepts to defame "Baba Jee", despite the fact that major Panthic personalities such as Jathedar Bhai Ranjit Singh Ji, and Colonel GS Sandhu of the Poohla fame, stand behind the victims and have demanded action against the Baba.

In the next several issues, Panthic Weekly will be presenting further evidence against the Baba from several victims that include cases such as sexual assault , coerced abortion, and land grabbing.

    Great sewa Khalsa Jeeo!
    This person is a fraudster. My family members were once his shardaloos, but no more.

    He was banned from NY area except by labana group, who are his key chelas.

    Sangat is with you, so expose him good.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

    Congratulations to the Panthic weekly team and all other Sikh organisations who united to continue cleaning up the Panth of the rubbish which has littered your faith.

    This fake holy man had his people write in international newspapers, about how nobody from the sangat will come forward to ask any questions. His wish came true at the S.F airport, but the baba has proved that he is no Sikh, by running away instead of confronting and answering the allegations.

    Keep up the good work. Lets hope the sangat in England in August 2006 will do the same, as this fake sadh is going to be there.

    Respected Guru Roop Khalsa Ji

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
    Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

    I'll say Guru Sahib Ji is watching each and every person even if h/she is baba or a common man, if this person Baba Maan is a fraud and done these crimes then Guru Ji will certainly punish him in this life for sure but our job as a part of great Sikh religion should be to find all kind of baba's and bring them in front of Sangat so that simple Sikh's dont get into there mayajal and they are not continusely doing these kind of crimes.

    I appericate work done by TPW and hope so they continue to do panth's seva like this.

    The first people to be educated are our kamliyaan aunti ji's.
    When this moorak turned up at Gravesend Gurdwara in Kent auntiyaan were touching his feet as he sat on stage while donating money to this evil individual.
    I have heard something about him in our town, but was not suprised whats his favourite line on his tapes aj keh ha.

    He must go the same way as that darshan das, does he not know what happens to people who blemish this sacred religion.
