By making viral an infamous video depicting Paramahamsa Nithyananda in morphed images; he was subjected to a media trial.
The hype created by the negative, malicious propaganda being carried out by the media instilled fear and threat in the devotees. They felt abandoned and vulnerable, unsure of what the outcome of this media frenzy will unfold for them and their Guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda. Hired henchmen of SunTV went on rampage in search for His Divine Holiness and intending to end his life then burning, destroying property, misbehaving with the sanyasis (monks) and residents living at the various ashrams all over.
Kumbokonam Aadheenam in South India witnessed such an attack by hired thugs, who went on a wild rampage of burning effigy of Paramahamsa Nithyananda , breaking down their property, scaring the gathered group of devotees by spraying inflammable kerosene all around in attempt to completely burn down the Aadheenam. Since the corrupt police were in hand along with the hired thugs; the devotees were left to fend for themselves. Chanting the name of their Guru and seeking refuge in him; they were able to bear this horrific ordeal.
(After eight years of this incident, they wait with abated breath for a judgement absolving Paramahamsa Nithyananda name from all the false cases filed against him in court. )
