Fugitive rape-accused Nithyananda declares his own Hindu island nation 'Kailaasa' near Ecuador - 2019-12-04
Rape accused and godman Nithyananda has reportedly set up his own country 'Kailaasa' even as government agencies continue to search for him in India. Though location of this 'nation' is still a mystery, its website says it's a "nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries".
A news report, however, claims it's a private island, which Nithyananda allegedly bought from Ecuador, a country on South America's west coast, near Trinidad and Tobago. India Today had earlier reported that rape accused Nithyananda had fled the country to Ecuador via Nepal.
According to the website, Kailaasa (kailaasa.org) offers a "safe haven to all the world's practising, aspiring or persecuted Hindus...where they can peacefully live and express their spirituality, arts, and culture free from denigration, interference and violence".
