Even after multiple attacks by Anti-Hindu elements at Pavazha Kundru, Tiruvannamalai, where the MahaSadashiva deity – the sacred rock on which Paramahamsa Nithyananda had His first deep experience of enlightenment is located, The Sanyas (Monks) disciples of His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda continue to perform their daily sacred rituals there.
On 22 Jun 2017, the disciples were offering abhishekam (sacred bath) with milk during the puja (ritualistic offering). All of a sudden, police and press media personal, expecting the physical presence of His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda at the spot, arrived and started recording the sacred ritual on camera and televising it live. They started making absurd statements as television commentary lines, speaking about the event in a totally distorted way, from what was really happening there.
Without sharing any reason, the policeman dragged the disciples and illegally arrested them! Two women Sanyasis were in the Sanyasis group. As per the law, women cannot be held in the police station after 6 pm. Completely violating this rule, they held the female Sanyasis in prison till 7:30 pm. In such preposterous ways, Hindu monks and Hindu rituals and sacred sentiments are treated, harassing and trying to instil fear in them to subjugate them. All the surprise attacks are a direct life-attempt on His Divine Holiness.
