Prem Rawat In The Media
During Prem Rawat's (Guru Maharaj Ji) career, attempts have been made by his "premies" (lovers ie followers) to portray him in roles from God-Boy
to Social Worker to internationally renowned and respected inspirational speaker and teacher of Inner Peace to self made businessman and
cutting edge philanthropist.
Unfortunately for his followers, Rawat's words, actions and appearance have derailed their PR attempts and the media has been far more interested in
the bizarre aspects of his life and their worship and have concentrated on presenting him as a butt of their humour especially in the
1970's when he was actively seeking publicity for his "mission to bring peace to the world." Understandably, many of the press releases and wire service stories
available to the press were published in newspaper columns devoted to the trivial and laughable. Prem Rawat has rarely been considered worthy of serious comment.
With the increasing availability of archival material on the internet we hope to create a complete resource of all information
about Prem Rawat's inglorious career. As one commentator put it: "The 16 year-old guru Maharaj Ji has decided he is God, I understand. That is not a bad job for a 16 year-old kid, except that there's no chance for advancement ... "
Nearly all the stories about Prem Rawat published in the regional press has come from the wire services:
United Press (UP) or
Associated Press (AP).
