Selling Tobacco In Shirdi Sai Baba's Name

Selling Tobacco In Shirdi Sai Baba's Name - For More News Visit:

05th Nov`2010

One has heard products being marketed and sold in the name of Film Stars etc. but misusing the name of Saints like Shirdi Sai Baba and that even for selling Tobacco related products, is surely bound to hit out at the sentiments of Devotees.

Shirdi Sai Baba's name is being misused by Madhusudan Beedi Works, Bhongir`Andhra Pradesh,
who are manufacturing "Beedies" (small hand-rolled cigarettes) by the name of "Sai Baba Beedies" and selling them openly in Ahmednagar`Maharashtra. The cover of the Beedi pack has a photo of Sai Baba printed along with the photo of its manufacturer on it.

This has annoyed Baba's devotees at Shirdi as they feel that after the Beedies will get over, its cover having Sai Baba's photo on it, will be discarded either in Garbage or will litter on the ground and thus might come under one's slippers or shoes, which is not acceptable by them, as they worship Sai Baba as their God.

They claim that Baba's name which itself heals diseases is being used to sell tobacco and all the more spread diseases.

So, they have made a request to the Shirdi Sansthan Trust to prohibit such harmful tobacco products to be sold in Sai Baba's name andalso want the Government to take some action against it.
