Spirited debate on Gail Tredwell’s book on social media

Kollam: Despite a case registered at the Karunagapally police station against those who campaigned against Mata Amritanandamayi on the social media, many people are still engaged in spirited debates over the allegations made by Gail Tredwell in her book, Holy Hell: A Memoir of Faith, Devotion, and Pure Madness, on the social media platform.

The Karunagapally police on Thursday night had registered a case against those who campaigned against Amritanandamayi on the social media networking sites.

Meanwhile, a fake Facebook page of writer Gail Tredwell was created using her name. Gail Tredwell Friday morning has posted in her Facebook page that the Amma ashram has now created a fake version of her Facebook page. “Is this how an honest and upright spiritual organization would behave?” Tredwell asked in her Facebook page.

Amid the media reports and the raging controversy on the social networking sites, the Math has not yet responded to the allegations made by Gail Tredwell in her book.

In the book, Tredwell recounts her personal experience in the ashram, where she admits she was complicit in covering up all sorts of ashram secrets, in a misguided attempt to protect the guru’s misdeeds from public view (believing, as all guru cultists do, that the guru is God in human form and therefore exempt from human standards of right and wrong).

Tredwell claims that the true picture of Amritanandamayi is far different from the facade of beloved holy woman that the public sees.
