3: What is the problem if religious "Hindu"people as per their own wish and faith donated these all wealth to God and its servants?" Hindus"never taunt or criticise other religions double standards.So,ultimately people of other religions have no right whatsoever to criticise "Hindu"Gods,Religion,Temples,Followers.Just mind your own businesses.No personal grunts intended please.

5: I agree with your views. Sai Baba was not a god but a devotee and has lived a normal life. Now people are devoting millions in his name. All these money can be used by India govt for the prosperity of the nation and the peoples.

9: Your spelling mistakes, grammar and using the derogatory word 'idol' instead of holy images or statues is appalling. Editor, do you read what you send out? Or simply do careless cut and paste job? So Indians are 'fanatic' as you call out says?
