Can’t form a nation by creating website: MEA confirms cancellation of Nityananda’s passport, comments on his bizarre claims

Confirming that the self-styled godman's Indian passport has been cancelled, MEA cleared that the Ministry cannot act suo motu on the recent developments in connection with Nithyananda unless there is a communication from any of the agencies probing his case.

Calling the claim of rape-accused Nityananda of forming a new country – Kailaasa through his website, ‘bizarre’, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said: ‘You can’t form a nation by creating a website’.

Kumar while attending the regional media engagement of the MEA, confirmed that no agency has yet approached the Ministry with information on the whereabouts of Nithyananda, who is absconding.

“We act on the advice of the agencies which report to us about such cases. We have to be informed that the person is believed to be living in this country along with the request for extradition. We have not received any such information on Nithyananda. Once we receive it, we will be happy to cooperate,” he said.

Confirming that the self-styled godman’s Indian passport has been cancelled, MEA cleared that the Ministry cannot act suo motu on the recent developments in connection with Nithyananda, who is suspected of hiding on an island off the Ecuador coast unless there is a communication from any of the agencies probing his case.

As the police continue to look for rape-accused self-styled godman Nithyananda who is suspected to have fled the country dodging the security agencies, reports are doing the rounds suggesting that absconding godman Swami Nithyananda’s legal team is hard at work on the draft of a petition to the UN seeking recognition for his “sovereign nation of Kailaasa”.

The rape-accused on his website claimed to have formed a new nation of his own called ‘Kailaasa’. Described as the greatest Hindu nation on earth on the website, Kailaasa has own flag and emblem.

The website – kailaasa.org – heaps praises on Nithyananda. It even has its own Wikipedia page called Nithyanandapedia which mentions, “Nithyanandapedia is an effort to capture all the knowledge and expressions shared by His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam – to have a one-stop-shop combining all His teachings in form of videos, audio, text, books, etc – combined with photographs that try and capture all the services He has offered and continues to offer to the world.”

The website claims Kailaasa is a nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism in their own countries. It offers universal free food, healthcare and education and seeks to revive the temple-based religious culture. The authenticity of the website is yet to be established.

According to Gujarat police, the self-styled ‘Swami’ Nityananda, accused of kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children to make them collect donations from followers to run his ashram in Ahmedabad, who has been missing since long, has fled the country.

Recently, an FIR was lodged against Swami Nityananda after police recorded statements of the four children who were rescued from a flat and the ashram, ‘Yogini Sarvagyapeetham’ situated on the premises of Delhi Public School in Ahmedabad, after a couple, Janardana Sharma and his wife, had petitioned the Gujarat High Court for help to get back two daughters who they alleged had been illegally confined at Swami Nityananda’s ashram.

The Gujarat police have been working relentlessly to gather concrete evidence against him after two of his disciples in remand confirmed that the controversial guru has fled abroad.

Nithyananda, who is over 40 years old, is a native of Tamil Nadu and his real name is Rajashekharan. He set up his ashram at Bidadi on Bengaluru-Mysore highway almost 20 years ago. Nithyananda, who first hit the national headlines for his alleged video in a compromising position with an actress in early 2010, has been a highly controversial figure. In June last year, a Karnataka court had framed charges against Nithyananda in a rape case. Since then the self-styled godman has been untraceable.
