Fugitive Godman Nithyananda Establishes Own 'Nation' Called 'Kailaasa'
GUWAHATI: Self styled fugitive Godman Nithyananda has set up the 'Republic of Kailaasa' on an island off Ecuador in South America.
A website Kailaasa.org, believed to be run by those close to the self-styled guru, has declared that Nithyananda has founded a country that is an island off the coast of Ecuador.
According to the website, Kailaasa is a nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries.
The website provides detailed information about Kailaasa’s flag, passport, national emblem, bird and tree. The flag — Rishabha Dhvaja — features Nithyananda along with Nandi, the mount of Shiva. Kailaasa also claims it stands for universal free healthcare, free education, free food and revival of a “temple-based lifestyle”.
Earlier, the Gujarat Police announced that Nithyananda had fled the country after being named in an FIR for alleged abduction, child labour, criminal intimidation and causing hurt.
