He reached Ongole on Tuesday night as part of his South India tour. Speaking at a public meeting, Swaroopanand said that he told the Sai Samsthan of Shirdi that Sai Baba is not a god, two months ago.
He said that he had also questioned them about the whereabouts of Sai Baba, for which he didn?t get any reply till date.Swamy further said that Sai Baba himself, about 70 years ago, declared that he was a Muslim. The Sai Sacharitra book, published by Shirdi Samsthan will reveal the truth about Sai Baba birth details but the they were not releasing the book, he alleged.
Swamy mocked that a few people said that Sai Baba was a Brahmin and born in a banyan tree after 15 days.
