Following an allegation from a Chennai-based individual that His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda was in illegal possession of wildlife products, including tiger skins and elephant tusks. Madurai police on 26th June conducted a thorough search of the Madurai Aadheenam premises, where His Divine Holiness has been frequently residing since he took over as the 293rd Guru MahaSannidhanam of this 1500-year-old Hindu organization on 27th April this year.
The search revealed no wildlife products or suspicious activities,. Both the pontiffs of Madurai Aadheenam, Paramahamsa Nithyananda and his predecessor Srila Sri Arunagirinatha Sri Jnanasambandha Desika Paramacharya Swamigal were present during the search.
The search came in the wake of a bizarre complaint registered with the Madurai police by one Solai Kannan of the Hindu Makkal Katchi. Kannan claimed to have visited the Aadheenam on the night of 12th May this year, where he was served teertham (holy water) spiked with intoxicants. While in an inebriated state, he claimed to have witnessed Paramahamsa Nithyananda in a compromising position with Tamil actress and devotee Ranjita, and several other male and female disciples in similar positions on beds of wet tiger skins and elephant tusks.
In view of the atrocious nature of the complaint, the Madurai police initially refused to register an FIR. Kannan then approached the Chennai High Court and obtained directions for the registration of an initial FIR against Paramahamsa Nithyananda, Srila Sri Arunagirinatha Swamigal and his assistant Vaishnavi. The absurd complaint was dismissed as baseless.
Such desperate means are being resorted to by the anti- Hindu elements to directly attack and block, Paramahamsa Nithyananda from carrying forward with His mission in Madhurai Aadheenam.
