Shirdi Sai Baba Facebooked

18th May`2013

Not so long ago, spam letters in the name of God used to be mailed to anyone & everyone asking them to make copies of the same & share it with 'n' number of people, else something evil will befall them. Then the same spamming, in the name of God went electronic & SMSes of the same followed by E-Mails, too started.

But now the latest trend seems to have been shifted over to the ever expanding Social Networking sites. You just have to log on to Facebook, Twitter etc and you will get some or the other message/post asking you to type a comment or like or share the post with 'n' number of people, and doing so will bring you good luck like a good job, wealth or true love but if not done, anything could go wrong for them.

Now, Shirdi Sai Baba seems to have become a soft target for such spammers. Owing to the lakhs of Baba's followers present on Facebook/Twitter etc, such spams asking devotees to write Baba's Mantra 108 times or upload Baba's photos on their Facebook wall or posting Sai Bhajan links on their timeline etc are being widely circulated promising them Baba's blessings to remove all their hardships in life. And going by the hits such spams are getting, it seems that many are Commenting/Liking or Sharing such posts.

But the fact is that such spammers are just playing with the emotions and insecurities of devotees. And only when one is superstitious or lacks Faith in Baba or himself, he falls for such spams.

Even on the Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan's official website, devotees are never asked to like,comment or share any photo to receive Sai Baba's blessings. But when the Shirdi Sansthan was contacted for the same they preferred to remain quiet in respect to this matter. They only said there were 'n' number of websites running in the name of Shirdi Sai Baba with which they had got to do nothing nor did they know who were the people spreading such spams in Baba's name.

So then the question arises as to Who is spreading such spams in the name of Baba and why? What are they gaining by doing so? And finally to whom are such spammers answerable to?
