Protect Paramahamsa Nithyananda; stop the abuse and religious persecution.
Paramahamsa Nithyananda and his peaceful devotees are being attacked and arrested on their own premises by greedy media and political forces that do not want the spiritual traditions of India to exist.
I send this to you with my sincere request for immediate assistance for a situation that is unfolding in Bidadi, Karnataka India.
Just yesterday, 7th of June 2012 criminal elements of the Suvarna TV Channel have come onto the sacred ashram of Paramahamsa Nithyananda and attacked the sannyasins there.
They forcibly entered the property, climbing the locked gates, threw rocks and furniture to hit devotees, and beat several peaceful ashramites. One, the senior administrator of the organization is currently in hospital with head injuries as a result of these beatings!
During a press meet at the Dhyanapeetam Headquarters on 8 June, 2012, some media persons created a violent scene. All of our live international cameras suddenly stopped and now we are told that 18 ashramites who peacefully live there have been arrested without cause and without explanation re: where they are being taken and for what false charges.
Video recordings of the attacks yesterday were submitted to the police but no arrests were made. The injustice deepens at the ashramites are being arrested but the trespassing criminals are not! The worldwide devotees are fearing for the safety of all the ashramites and Swamiji.
I and millions of devotees are deeply concerned for the physical safety of these Indian citizens and have no one to turn to for help in this matter.
The Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam centres and devotees worldwide sincerely and ardently request that you immediately turn your attention to this persistent religious persecution situation.
Thousands worldwide are ready to pour emails to you requesting your support with an immediate investigation of this latest attack of religious persecution and human rights violation in this ongoing abuse.
Over the last 2 + years this peaceful group has been under intense abuse from various departments within the government including the local police of Karnataka. Media channels such as SUN TV and now Suvarna are abusing Paramahamsa Nithyananda and His followers via false tv reports. Twice in these last tow days 50 + criminals have attacked them on mission premises and now the victims of abuse are being arrested!
As you may be aware, Paramahamsa Nithyananda was illegally imprisoned for 53 daysin 2010. The disciples and devotees have been attacked in the streets. The ashram centres have been burned without cause.
Whenever Nithyananda approaches the police for assistance to protect His followers and property, He is told that there is nothing that can be done.
Please, please help us TODAY in this situation.
The police aren't following the laws they are bound to uphold, nor are they protecting these citizens.
If in fact they and some media mafia are on a campaign to destroy this mission, who do we, the peaceful devotees of Paramahamsa Nithyananda turn to for protection and assistance?
We are all deeply grateful for your immediate attention and assistance.
Ma Nithyananda Prajna
