27 May 2013
The attacks of the vested interests did not remain confined to Swami Nithyananda. They extended to individual devotees, inhumanly targeting especially women and children.
On 27 May 2013, a lady disciple Jyiothi Sakamuri and a resident of USA, who was volunteering at the Hyderabad ashram of Swami Nithyananda was attacked. She had left USA and come to India with her kids to get away from her husband who was harassing and beating her and the kids. She was staying at her friend’s house and used to come to the temple to offer social and religious services.
The husband was instigated by the vested interests, he made a media story about the woman and the kids and even kidnapped her son. He came with many men and beat the woman and threatened to kill them.
This was reported to the police but no action was taken. The woman and kids still are not able to even visit the temple as they are afraid for their life.
