Sri Nithya Ishwarpriyananda, an allumni of IIT Kharagpur, describes the ignorance and disrespect anti hindu forces have for Hinduism and how the children of Nithyananda Gurukul were ill treated by officials of Women and Children Department. His daughter has been a student of Nithyananda Gurukul for over six years.
My name is Sri Nithya Ishwapriyananda. and I wanted to share about an incident that happened in 2013, where the students of the Nithyananda Gurukul, were badly treated by the officers who came from a State Government department. Now there was this time were, forces that didn’t want the Gurukul to run in its form because Swamiji was getting them to manifest so many powers, raised a complaint and these Officers from the Child and Women Welfare Department had come and on the pretext of an inspection, landed here at the Ashram at about 9pm and that as you know is pretty much the time when most of the kids have gone to sleep and they came at that time and they wanted to meet all the children. Now we had to go wake them up and present them in the hall, right, and they were in such a sleepy mood, they were asking questions about their well being, wethen it was their own choice and so forth but the thing i wanted to highlight was, this Officer who was supposedly the person who was leading the whole inspection, had very bad remarks about the Gurukul’s attire. The girls were wearing Sarree’s and the boys wearing Dhoti’s and he said it was below grade, or something to that effect, right. he had made very derogatory remarks as to how come children are wearing this type of dress instead of what probably what he sees everywhere else like a shirt and a skirt or something like that. Now we need to know that this is a Gurukul and a Sarree and a Dhoti are traditional attire and he had such remarks and that infront of children he was raising his voice, he was using abusive words and telling them that how come this kind of attire is being used in the Ashram or for the children, right. Then another incident happened where he started scolding one of the kids and he said how can you sit so in such a disrespectful manner infront of me, don’t you know how to sit properly and all of that. It turns out that the kid was actualy sitting in vadjasana, so if you know anything about yoga you know that Vadjasana is one of the best postures to sit and aligns the back and you are completely alert and so on, right. but this person had no clue of what was happening and has no background in yoga or our traditions or our culture and he’s here to abuse all our children and the way we are training them. So this kind of abuse our kids had to undergo in, at a time when they were supposed to be sleeping, this is the kind of torture and ill treatment they had to undergo, just because they’re part of a Hindu religious organistation and education institution that is running, that is run by a Hindu organisation and more specially by Paramahamsa Nithyananda. now this kind of attacks have to stop, our Gurukul’s have been the backbone of this whole tradition and culture, we need to revive them back, therefore my call to all of you watching this is support Swamiji in his mission to reinstate all of Sananta Hindu Dharma and stop all this harassment of Gurukul and Gurukul children. These things should not happen, they are people who are flowering into a completely divine beings, we need to support that process.
Thanks for watching, Nithyanandam.
