Nithyananda who claims to be the spiritual head of the Madurai Adheenam mutt in Tamil Nadu became an internet sensation after his video clips went viral on all social media platforms. He was arrested and put behind the bars in 2010 in Himachal Pradesh regarding rape allegations. He was released from jail again The godman was also allegedly seen in uncensored footage with an actress. After 50 days of police and judicial custody, Nithyananda was released from the prison in Ramanagaram.
In the latest development, the Gujarat police are constantly tracking his locations as Nithyananda was live on his YouTube channel late on Tuesday evening delivering a speech on “Paramashivan gnyanam” and “Paramashiva vignyanam” from an island near Trinidad and Tobago. The fugitive godman Nithyananda buys an island in South America and formed an own ‘nation’
A website which was hosted by his ashram claimed that the island identified as ‘Kailaasa’, is a Hindu nation with its own flag, passport and emblem.
As per some reports, Nithyananda has bought the island from Ecuador in central Latin America and has also declared it an independent, new nation. It is described as “a nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries”.
While the police have initiated a probe on how Nithyananda managed to escape the country though his passport had expired. Shockingly, the website says ‘Kailaasa’ has its own “passport”. The symbols on the passport has the flag of Kailaasa, called Rishabha Dhvaja, and features Nithyananda along with Nandi, Lord Shiva’s mount too.
The website further adds saying that “new nation” also offers a temple-based ecosystem, yoga, meditation, and Gurukul education system. It also provides universal free health care, free education, food and the languages of the ‘country’ are English, Sanskrit and Tamil respectively.
However, the sources in the Ministry of External Affairs said that it is ‘not a joke’ to officially declare a purchased piece of land or an island as a ‘nation’. “Other countries have to accept it as a nation and the United Nations too has to recognise it. It is not like going to Gurugram, buying a piece of land and declaring it as a nation,” the source said.
Meanwhile, the investigating agencies have been keeping an eye on the website closely for the past few weeks. “It seems to have been created in 2018 and was updated a few months ago. The IP was traced to Dallas, Texas, in the USA,” sources said.
Karnataka senior police officers added that there is no authentic information on the location of Nithyananda.
“His whereabouts are not known after he was enlarged on bail in 2012 in a rape case. He has not been seen in Karnataka,” said a senior officer. He added that the website may be “fictitious and the work of one of his several disciples in the US”. “The Karnataka CID and Gujarat police have approached the Ministry of External Affairs to help locate the fugitive rape-accused godman,” the officer added.
Another senior police officer from Bidadi threw some light on the godman, adding that: “He is a very intelligent man. His legal team is very strong. He has brainwashed several foreigners and influential people. Though we cannot confirm the authenticity of him purchasing a whole island, he is capable of that. We have seen that happen here in Bidadi.
Earlier, the godman claimed that he can make monkeys and other few animals like cows, lions and tiger speak fluent ‘Sanskrit’ and ‘Tamil’. The self-declared godman believes that the animals will grow these organs by ‘superconscious breakthrough’.
He went on to say adding that he can prove it through a scientific, medical test and researches. “I will demonstrate…monkeys and other few animals, which do not have many of the internal organs we all have, by initiating them into superconscious breakthrough, they will grow these organs, and I will establish it, prove it through a scientific, medical test and researches (sic),” says the Swami Nithyananda.
He credits his “superconscious breakthrough” to a software that he claims to have tested “casually”.
“I am declaring after testing this software yesterday. Yesterday, actually, I casually tested this software. It was perfectly working. Understand, Let this be on record. Within a year, I’ll establish this.”
“I’ll develop a proper, phonetic, linguistic-capable vocal cord for monkeys. Phonetic, linguistic-capable vocal cord for lions and tigers. We are going to have bulls and cows which will talk to you very clearly, legitimately, in Sanskrit and Tamil,” he said.
