In a Q&A session during a discourse, His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda answered a question from a devotee about terrorist attacks. Those statements have been completely distorted by vested interests in the media to claim that He is against the army. In the video he is shown equating soldiers dying for their country as ‘suicide’ victims and killing enemy soldiers as ‘murder’; soldiers would suffer the same fate as those committing murder and committing suicide in afterlife.
However, Paramahamsa Nithyananda has very clearly stated that He is a Nationalist and fully supports the Indian Army and Armed Forces, who are valiantly fighting the terrorist forces attacking India.
