Failure of Krishnamurti on the path of occultism

Suppose there is a patient sick with critical illness. Doctor gives
him medicine and tells him that if he (the patient) takes that
medicine, he will get cured.
Now another person comes and tells the patient that if he (patient)
takes that medicine, the patient will die.
It is the same situation when we are comparing Theosophy and
Krishnamurti. Masters and their messengers are giving people medicine
in the form of guidance on the path of discipleship and tell if you do
these things you will reach Nirvana. So people are patients, Master is
Now third person Krishnamurti comes and tells the patient (people)
that if the patient takes the medicine offered by the doctor (Master),
patient will die. So patient does not know what to do. Doctor says
patient will not die if he takes the medicine and that third person
tells that patient will die if he takes that medicine.
Krishnamurti considers following Masters, religions as the cause of
ignorance. On the cotrary Masters tell that knowledge of path of
occultism is necessary to remove ignorance about knowledge of the Self.
In such situation we need to find whose position is supported by
historical evidence. Historical evidence and testimony tell that
Masters and the Path exist. Krishnamurti's assertion that Masters and
religion as cause of ignorance is not supported by historical evidence
