To Whom It May Concern,

The undersigned are writing on behalf of JuST (Just Seekers of Truth), a group of thirty-two concerned citizens who have organised an international petition, so far signed by over 1500 persons. We are much concerned by the activities of a famous guru Sathya Sai Baba and his worldwide organisation. There are a number of serious allegations concerning sexual abuse (including minors) and complicity in murders which must be investigated. Such crimes as allegedly are being covered up by the very influential Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai Organisation are so serious that ignoring the allegations amounts to ignoring dramatic violations of human rights of innocent victims.

We would beg you to pay attention to a public petition for an official investigation of Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai Organisation signed by many ex-devotees, ex-members and former office-bearers of the Sathya Sai Organisation. This petition can be examined in full at (the full text is on the attached file).

We request that you kindly will examine this petition and publicise it as you may see fit, preferably with an appeal to Indian authorities for a proper investigation of these matters.

We are yours sincerely,

Just Seekers of Truth
