From the release of the fabricated obscene video of Paramahamsa Nithyananda in March of 2010, leading up to his first illegal arrest in April of 2010, Paramahamsa Nithyananda faced a constant threat to his life. Whether it was a mob that stormed the Bengaluru Aadheenam gates, or it was a car chase whenever he stepped out of the Aadheenam, Hindu extremist terrorist groups have constantly used crowds and numbers to attack His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
On April 9th, 2010, Paramahamsa Nithyananda was taken to the hospital due to complaints of chest pain while he was imprisoned. After this visit, he was returning back to his vehicle. at this time, as he got into the vehicle, a slipper with several sharp objects was hurled at him from the crowd, and the person shouted some expletives at Paramahamsa Nithyananda. This was not an isolated action, done by a lone individual. This was the first blow in the larger plan of a full mob-lynching. Fortunately, His Divine Holiness was shielded by one of his own Sanyasis, and the attackers were unsuccessful in their attempt to take his life. Mob-lynching has always been the goal of such confrontations in public, and this has been the preferred method of attempting to assassinate His Divine Holiness, as there would be no one person responsible for his death in the end.
The tactic of constantly separating the public from Paramahamsa Nithyananda is exactly what makes it seem like the public is constantly angry at him. In truth, the individual who threw the slipper was hired by one of the extremist terrorist Hindu groups, and it was simple an action to instigate the crowd, which had already been filled with hate for His Divine Holiness through incessant media propaganda. An anonymous figure throwing sharp objects from the crowd is simply the signal or the trigger to start a violent lynching of the target – His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
