Who is the innocent? The victim or the rapist?

For those who have not been following the Nithy case and not been up to date with news and all the details of the case, it is very likely that you are not aware of the latest news that a woman victim has complained against Nithy! Finally a woman had the courage to speak out about the atrocities, despite all the social stigma in India for a rape victim and risk to her personal safety. But the retaliation and smear campaign to humiliate and silence her has already begun from Nithy's side!!!! To make the readers more aware of the facts in this case, we are forced to point out some facts and truths that are being conveniently covered up with repeated lies from Nithy's camp! In a recent article posted on their blog, titled 'Guilty until proven innocent?' the rapist is being portrayed as a victim and the victim is being disposed off as irrelevant and judged as false!!! The court shall decide who is really innocent, the victim or the rapist, but you should know the many hidden facts and inside informations that may never reach the common person who may follow this case. How much longer will crocodile tears flow for Nithy?! When will his ashramite victims stand up for Dharma!!

Guilty until proven innocent?

A devotee who has been tracking the Nithyananda case expresses her views

Who is the innocent? The victim or the rapist? 
One of the many former devotees to whom Nithy spoke when he was hiding expresses her views

If you have been tracking the Nithyananda Swami case, one question that can’t skip your mind is: What is this Indian legal system all about?
In the last hearing on Sep 13, the CID alleged there was a woman who lodged a rape complaint against Nithyananda.
Let us take a quick look at what really happened in this case.
A video was released showing Nithyananda and a Tamil actress allegedly in an intimate scene. The public opinion was cunningly turned against the young charismatic guru who happens to be the most popular spiritual guru today. This was the stage that was set… for what? For slapping a ridiculous police complaint (that got instantly turned into an FIR) against Nithyananda in some remote place in Tamilnadu. The video was used to turn the entire nation’s view, even the court’s view, on a ridiculous FIR.

The Indian legal system is finally working! If Nithy was innocent why did he run away for more than a month? Why did he hide when he knew that the Police were hunting him? Why did he have to be dragged like a common criminal from his hide out when he proclaims he is an avatara purusha?  Of course, he also claims when it suits him that he is no purusha but a napumsaka!
Nithy spoke to more than a hundred former followers all over the world with the same message. He said that the video that was telecast nationwide (of him engaging in sex with a woman) was all true. He said that he did it without lust. Doctors will have  a problem believing that a man can have an erection and engage in sex without lust.
This is the same case as his frontal lobe lighting up and dopamine pouring out. He is a classic schizophrenic. He is also a sex addict.
He apologized to all these people profusely and also cried seeking their understanding. Not one or two but hundreds. He told them, "Please tell all others that I acted without lust. I made a mistake, but it will not happen ever again".
Since Nithy himself admitted that his romps with the Andhra porn star were true, why is the FIR ridiculous. since when did the truth become ridiculous.

How else do you explain someone being kept in custody for 53 days without even a complainant just based on a ‘hearsay’ FIR? There are various charges on Nithyananda:
The most ridiculous charge was RAPE – who is the person who was raped? What is her identity? The FIR itself is based on an anonymous letter by some lady who claims to have been raped. When that didn’t hold in the court, the investigation authorities closed the issue saying the Tamil actress allegedly in the video has denied anything to do with the whole matter. (But they made everyone forget that there was no rape charge on her in the first place!)
But this is not the end of this ridiculous issue…
On the hearing on Sep 13, the court literally rapped the CID for not being able to produce a shred of evidence to support their case. It repeatedly observed that there was nothing to support the charges of 376 and 420. It directed investigation of 295 (A) and 377 and granted the time requested by the CID of 4 weeks to investigate.
Not 4 weeks, but 7 weeks the CID took to investigate. Don’t forget that every minute of extension of a case, the accused has to endure patiently. He has to reconcile that it is (only) his life that is being footballed. Thank god, Nithyananda is enlightened! It must be an easy thing!
At the end of 7 weeks, they come back on Sep 13 with absolutely no progress in the investigation. The hearing gets posted for Sep 21.
What happens?
What he committed was rape.. the victims know this. The public shall also know this soon, when it is proved in the courts! It is not just one or two victims as he first claimed, but dozens and some below the age of consent.These women were afraid to speak out about the inappropriate sex, as most women raised in India would be. On top of his misdeeds Nithy also told them that he could harm them through his tantric rites, which his willing sanyasi disciples reinforced. No one wanted to suffer more than they already did. Telling the Police was not an option for many of them, for reasons that are very obvious and clear in the Indian social context. Still, many came forward and spoke to the Police, but stopped at giving written or spoken evidence due to fear of retaliation, revenge and public humiliation not only for themselves, but for the respectable families they come from. The Police was working with its hands tied. They had to make sure that the evidence was water tight. Anyone who knows about our legal system would certify that 7 weeks is jet speed for such cases. Most drag on for years. Why is Nithy baba so special! 

The CID comes back and for the first 20 minutes of the session, they are grilled by the judge as to what evidence they have – if they don’t have any, he will have to quash the investigation.
Just at that time, suddenly, the DIG CID, Mr. Charan Reddy gets up and makes a statement that they have a statement of a woman who claims to have been raped by Nithyananda?!
And when was she raped?
In 2005!
So what was she doing for 5 years? Waiting for an opportunity to ride on someone else’s FIR?
If there was indeed such a serious charge of rape, if there was indeed a real victim, would the CID have been quiet on 3 major occasions when they should have offered the same to the court?
One should not forget that on 23rd July, the Investigating Officer himself said that there was absolutely no evidence to support the charge of rape. On 31st August a SLP was filed in the Supreme Court that the High Court is restricting the CID by a time-bound investigation! When it was actually the CID that asked for 4 weeks which was granted by the High Court and that actually extended to 7 weeks. Again in Ramanagara Sessions court there was an opportunity to highlight the change of condition. Finally on Sep 13, in the High Court hearing, after 20 minutes of drawing flak from the judge, the senior of the Investigating Officer stands up and makes a statement about some alleged woman alleging rape!
Who is the victim? When is the incident alleged? Where is the FIR? What investigation was done on the alleged complaint? Why was such an important piece of information not brought to the notice of 3 different courts on 3 separate occasions – Ramanagara Sessions court, High Court of Karnataka and Supreme Court of India?
This is nothing short of a misuse of power, a transgression of law, a clear case of harassment against an individual who happens to be a fast-growing person in popularity worldwide.

Anyone who has studied cases of rape in India would understand that all these allegations are coming straight from the rapist. this is the classic strategy of a rapist, by making the rape victim the criminal instead of the monster who raped. Nithy's men and women are doing a great job in trying the victim. Unfortunately this tactic has failed all over the world including India.

The pity here is that it is a woman who raises her voice against an other woman, who has been wronged. She should hang her head in shame. Perhaps she is ignorant (like most others) or is fully aware of the facts and truth, but sufficiently brainwashed to turn a blind eye to it, ignore all common sense and continue to dance to Nithy's tunes. But not everyone  is like her... atleast some victims are coming out of Nithy's heavy brainwashing and speaking out the truth.

A crime is a crime... no matter how much time has passed after the crime was committed! And a victim of a crime has the fundamental right to speak out about the crime whenever they are ready to speak out about it. Remember the case in Punjab, where a Police DIG has now been convicted after 12 years of the incident. That was molestation, not even rape, though the victim committed suicide. What do these people want? Would they like the victims to die so that Police and Courts can become silent?
These are no allegations. Police has submitted proof. The court will now study this and award punishment.

Who is behind all this? Is this what you get for being a religious practitioner in this country and that too of the supposed majority religion? Is this what you get for offering social services to the people at large? Is this what is meant by protection of the liberty and the fundamental constitutional rights of a citizen?
It is a shame… There are many questions staring at the face of every Indian who should simply hang his head in shame for the gross injustice that is being committed against a person. If we really feel for this great tradition of Bharat, it is high time we stood by the people who are here to share with us to share their wisdom for a better, beautiful life for all of us. We need to stand up strong against the evil forces that are conspiring to keep this country enslaved ideologically even though we got our political freedom over 50 years ago.

Who has to hang whose head in shame? Nithy and his cohorts are cavorting. Nithy is probably doing it behind the throne even now, while his followers are in meditation. He is sick and needs medical attention.

If one is from the majority religion, one has to have the responsibility to reform practitioners of that religion. Nithy is a shame on Hinduism. He must be stopped. The proof has been presented. The punishment must follow.

One woman had the courage to step forward. We hope that the rest will follow. Otherwise the guilt of their silence will follow them to their grave.

Nithy's men are already planning what to do when he goes in for a long long time. In fact they are counting the days to Nithy's counting the prison bars.

Nithyananda sought Lenin’s pardon: CID

[ Date : Sep 24th, 2010

Self-styled godman Paramahamsa Nithyananda, facing criminal charges including rape, sought the pardon of his former driver-turned-whistleblower Karuppa Lenin, and offered him protection, the criminal investigation department submitted before the high court of Karnataka on Thursday.
This was revealed in a compact disk that Lenin had produced, investing officer and superintended of police (CID) KN Yogappa said in an affidavit.
The officer said that three prime witnesses in the case have been staying in the US. The godman had caused agony to all the three witnesses —3  no

The first information report had accused Nithyananda of sexually harassing  xxxxxxx. Yogappa said efforts were on to bring the prime witnesses to Bangalore.
Besides these three, a few others too had provided their statements against Nithyananda.
Without naming the person, Yogappa said that the person was sexually abused and raped for over four years, in “the guise of spiritual enlightment.”
Some other devotees provided details on the fraud and deception the godman had committed. Ten non-disclosure agreements signed by five devotees had been seized, Yogappa submitted, adding that these persons were “taken for tantrik sex, and exposed to obscenity.
The officer claimed that the materials collected “clearly show the acts of deception” by Nithyananda.The CID had examined Lenin, and the camera used in recording the alleged sleaze acts of the swamy, was sent to the forensic science laboratory for scientific examination.
Two persons, Gurucharan and KP Praveen, told the CID that Nithyananda’s actions had hurt the religious sentiments.
Yogappa further said in the affidavit that the investigation into allegation against Nithyananda was under progress. Requesting more time to complete the investigation, the officer said statements of several persons staying abroad were yet to be recorded, besides collecting information from several former devotees.
A decision on whether to prosecute Nithyananda under section 295-A (outraging religious sentiments) would be taken only after completing the investigation.The affidavit was filed based on the court’s September 13 directive

CID memo to court on Nithyananda

The CID probing the alleged sex scandal of Nithyananda has submitted a memo along with a CD in a sealed cover to the High Court.

The Investigating Officers (IO) submitted an extract of the CD along with an affidavit pertaining to the progress of the investigation during the hearing of a petition by Nithyananda seeking to quash the FIR against him at Ramanagara Police Station. In the affidavit, the Investigating Officers  have submitted that certain new evidence have come into light wherein a devotee of Nithyananda has complained about being sexually abused by him.

In a statement said to have been recorded between August 16 and August 17, the IOs have said that the devotee’s has stated that she was victimised by Nithyananda under the guise of ‘enlightening’ her.

The affidavit also points to several details, revealed by many devotees, whom the petitioner had victimised in the name of religion. The CID said that the petitioner has got 10 non-disclosure agreements signed by some of the devotees.

“Consent of these persons was fraudulently obtained by the petitioner for Tantrik sex and for being exposed to obscenity. These materials collected clearly shows the act of deception on the part of the petitioner,” the affidavit said.

The affidavit also mentions that complainant Lenin on September 16, 2010 had produced a CD containing audio recording of the telephonic conversation and an email message, where Nithyananda had sought Lenin’s forgiveness, assuring him full protection and safety.

The CD with the alleged video clipping involving Nithyananda has also been sent to Forensic Science Laboratory. The report is awaited. Mentioning that the investigation is still under progress, the affidavit mentioned about the two witness residing in USA. 

Mentioning that the probe is being conducted fair and impartial manner, the IO has sought sufficient time for completion of the investigation.

Counsel for the petitioner in his submission termed the submission as baseless and sought it to be dismissed. The matter is adjourned.

CID submits CD against Nithyananda

Sept. 23: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Thursday submitted a compact disc (CD) along with relevant documents before the high court in the case against self-styled godman Nithyananda Swami, who has sought directions to quash the FIR against him.
The CD and documents were submitted in a sealed cover before Justice Arali Nagaraj. The court has directed the registrar, judicial, to keep the CD and other materials in safe custody. The CID also produced the statements of witnesses in CD format in the case registered against Nithyananda under section 306 (rape) of IPC. Before submitting the documents and CD to the court, advocate general Ashok Harnahalli requested the court to keep the material as most confidential keeping in view the sensitivity of the case.
“The investigating agency can not disclose the identification of the alleged rape victim at this stage, I request the court to consider the seriousness of the case, the investigating officer can not disclose in an open court all facts of the offence registered under section 306. But considering the nature of offence, it would be difficult for the investigating agency to exhibit the documents in an open court,” the AG submitted. “Our investigating agency is trying its best to take statements of the witnesses but we have been unable to make substantial progress in the investigation,” the AG admitted.
Meanwhile, K.N.Yogappa, CID investigating officer filed an affidavit in the court seeking more time to complete the investigation against Nithyananda as the probe has to be conducted in a fair and impartial manner.
“During the investigation, a devotee has given a statement that she was sexually abused and raped by him over a period of four years under the guise of spiritual enlightenment. Some former devotees have been subjected to an inquiry for the offence,” affidavit states.
Mr Yogappa further stated that the complainant Lenin K. was further examined on September 16, 2010 and he produced the CD which contains the audio recording of the telephonic conversation and an email. The hidden camera, which allegedly recorded the incident, was sent to the forensic science laboratory to ascertain its authenticity.

Nithyananda bail may be cancelled

  CID officials in Karnataka are considering filing a petition in court to cancel the bail that has been given to Nithyananda.

It is alleged that the witnesses against Nithyananda are being increasingly threatened by the godman's devotees. An official source said that the CID is worried that the witnesses will turn hostile.

Nithyananda was arrested after he was seen in a compromising position with a Tamil actress, the video of which was aired in a private television channel. He was arrested on grounds of rape and hurting religious sentiments and spent a few days in jail as well. Of late, cases have been filed against Lenin, the key witness, and officer Yogappa for trespassing, which has influenced the idea of the getting the bail cancelled.

Already a lot of witnesses, including actress Ranjitha, have turned hostile owing to pressure from the devotees of Nithyananda though they initially promised to speak against him. Reports also indicate that the report against Nithyananda is 90% complete. The next hearing on the case is on Thursday.

HC directs CID to file affidavit in Nityananda case

  • HC directs CID to file affidavit in Nityananda case

STAFF WRITER 18:23 HRS IST Bangalore, Sep 21 (PTI) The Karnataka High Court today directed the CID -- probing criminal charges, including rape, against self-styled godman Nityananda -- to file an affidavit on September 23 on the progress made in the case.

When the petition filed by Nityananda praying for quashing of the two FIRs came up before Justice Arali Nagaraj, the CID which was asked to file an affidavit on September 13, sought two days time to do so.

The court agreed to grant the time and adjourned the hearing to September 23.

The self-styled godman landed in a controversy in March after TV channels aired video footage purportedly showing him in an objectionable position with a Tamil actress

CID may cancel Bangalore Sex Swami's bail

CID may cancel Bangalore Sex Swami's bail

Bangalore:  Taking a serious note of the development in the Swami Nityananda case, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is chalking out legal strategies to get his bail cancelled.

According to officials, there are chances that Nityananda might influence or pressurise the witness to turn hostile through various means.

Nithyananda's devotees had earlier filed a trespass case against Lenin, a prime witness in the case.

Lenin is the complainant in the Nityananda case who presented a video footage that allegedly showed Swami Nityananda with Tamil actress Ranjitha in a compromising state.

According to the CID, Nityananda's devotees filed a trespass case against Lenin first with the Ramanagar Superintendent of Police, which was later transferred to the CID.

The devotees then filed a case with the court and accused Lenin for the same. However, investigating officer Yogappa produced a statement in the court saying that Lenin had not trespassed in the Ashram.

The devotees then filed a case of contempt against Yogappa.

A CID officer feels that if such incidents are repeated, it may have serious repercussions on the witnesses who may go hostile.

"This is a systematic plan to put pressure on the investigators and setting a bad example," said an officer.

He added the example of witnesses such as Ranjitha and Vinay Bhardwaj who have already turned hostile in this case, though they were said to have prepared themselves to give their statements earlier.

Ranjitha, who was questioned by a team of CID officials, had recently denied that she was not in the video, and her face may have been morphed.

Her statement came despite the CID having a Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) report from Hyderabad, stating that the video was genuine, and not tampered.

TN woman’s plaint against godman

Bangalore, Sep 18, DHNS:

Disgraced godman Nithyananda, whose secretly filmed sex romp with a Tamil actress was hit television screens in March this year, appears to be in deep trouble again with a woman hailing from Tamil Nadu filing a criminal complaint, charging him with sexual abuse and cheating.

This is the second complaint against Nithyananda, who was released on bail on June 11 after the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) found no evidence to pursue the cases that were filed on the basis of the charges brought against him by a former devotee Lenin Karuppan.

It was Karuppan who used secretly-installed cameras in the godman’s bedroom to record his sexual dalliance with Tamil actress Ranjitha. Based on Karuppan’s complaints a series of cases, including rape, unnatural sex, criminal intimidation and hurting the religious sentiments of people, were filed against the godman who was arrested in Solon, Himachal Pradesh, on April 21.

The second complaint, filed a few days back with CID sleuths here, is damning because this is the first time a woman has dared to come forward and slap charges against Nithyananda who had his devotees -- male and female -- sign a non-disclosure agreement in which they agreed to participate in tantra sex and watch pornography, among other things.

CID sources said that the complaint, which contains a detailed account of how Nithyananda allegedly sexually abused and exploited the woman and cheated her in the name of meditation, would be presented in the trial court when a charge sheet will be filed against him.

The sources said that immediately after receiving the complaint, sleuths began investigations and there is likelihood of the godman being arrested a second time.

Devotees incited to file false cases against informer

Bangalore, Sept 15, DH News Service:

The State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has claimed before a Ramanagara court that Nithyananda was instigating people to file false complaints against Lenin Karuppan, the man who blew the lid off the godman’s alleged sexcapades in his Bidadi ashram.

In a September 4 application before the judicial magistrate’s court in Ramanagara, the CID has claimed that Nithyananda, who was released on conditional bail on June 11, incited a US-based devotee Anjula Jackson, wife of Hari Jackson of St Petersburg in Florida, to file a complaint against Karuppan in the same court on August 28.

In response to Jackson’s complaint, which the CID has described as baseless, frivolous and motivated, the agency defended Karuppan, claiming that he had not committed any offence as made out by the US-based person’s allegations.

In her complaint, Jackson said that Karuppan had violated Nithyananda’s privacy, trespassed the self-styled godman’s living quarters and defamed him.

After the CID moved the Ramanagara court, Nithyananda’s advocate moved a contempt petition against the investigating agency in the Karnataka High Court on September 14.

From Deccan Chronicle

Sept. 15: In what appears to be an attempt to sabotage the case against her spiritual mentor, a devotee of Swamy Nithyananda has filed a contempt case against the investigating officer — Superintendent of Police, Criminal Investigation Department, K.N. Yogappa in a Ramanagaram court.

The devotee — an American citizen currently residing in the Bidadi ashram of Nithyananda has sought permission from the Advocate General of Karnataka to prosecute Yogappa in a contempt case for trying to influence the court in prosecuting Lenin — Nithyananda's former driver and complainant in the case against the godman.

Soon after Nithyananda, arrested on various charges including rape and cheating, was released on bail in June, some of his devotees filed a criminal case of trespass, cheating and forgery against Lenin, on whose complaint the Bidadi police had registered a case against Nithyananada, which was subsequently handed over to the CID. Mr. Yogappa filed a rejoinder in the case stating that Lenin is the complainant and innocent following which, Nithyananda's disciples filed a contempt case against Yogappa for influencing the court.

Highly placed sources in the CID charged Nithyananda's disciples for making sustained efforts to win over the three key witnesses in the case against the controversial godman. “We had examined Tamil actress Ranjitha, who was reportedly in the controversial videotape with Nithyananda.

She denied she was in the video and said the tape was fabricated. But the forensic report confirmed that the tape was genuine, unedited and the two people shot in it were Nithyananda and Ranjitha. The second witness had agreed to testify against the godman before the CID but now even he has backed out for obvious reasons”, an officer said.

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

We wish all our readers a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi!! And for all those whose lives have been affected by Nithy, we wish this day will mark the start of a new journey in their lives!

Significance of Ganesha Chaturthi

All Indian festivals, beneath the aspect of delight and celebration, hold the underlying essence or the spirit which has to be captured to grasp the eternal truth. So it is with Ganesha Chaturthi.

The very story of Ganesha's manifestation holds the essence of Advaita Vedanta. He has been manifested out of the divine essence of (Parvati). This is a reminder that we all are made up of the same, all pervading essence or the spirit though we may vary owing to the disparities in shape and form.

Ganesha is the manifested form of the divine. The formless divine is ever present though it takes on a manifestation or a form,owing to our identification of ourselves with a form. Having manifested with a form, the divine also assumes a name due to our association with a form and our wrong notion of separate existence, in order to distinguish ourselves from others.

The truth or the essence is but one, the formless spirit that pervades all destroys the disparities. The celebration of Ganesha Chaturti reveals that while we worship the divine with the form, we ought to bear in mind our formless reality. This is depicted in the elaborate worship that is carried out on Gnaesha Chaturti and finally dissolving the form that we endear in a water body in remembrance of the divine as the formless reality even beyond the manifested form.

It is not to be considered that worship of forms do not have any value. Since we identify ourselves with a form it is imperative to seek the truth with a manifested form in order to proceed to realise the formless reality. This ultimately merges oneself with the realisation of one's true self, the formless reality thereby in eternal mergence with the divine.

A Challenge to Nithyananda - Dharmananda

English Translation (Original article in Tamil is below this):
Special thanks to Mr. Hari for translating.

There is a saying in the villages which goes’ the one who robs/grabs whatever he could lay his hands on, will be shouting” thief thief “ while running with the booty just to distract the attention of others from him so that no one recognizes him. This is what is happening in Nithyananda’s issue also.

Nithy has instigated the remaining few devotees who are in the ashram to file an FIR against Lenin Dharmanada, saying that the cd where Nithy and Ranjitha are in a compromising position to be a fake and that the cd has been created by using computer graphics like the movie ‘Avatar’ and that Lenin who is responsible for the release of this cd has to be arrested. These people are creating havoc by giving a complaint to the Bangalore police and also by indulging in protests.

We met Lenin who has played an important role in bringing Nithyananda’s true self to the world and asked him about his response to the complaints against him. Here are his answers which flowed in crystal clear words.

Q: there is a complaint against you from Nithyananda’s side that the cd displaying Nithyananda and Ranjitha in compromising position as fake and that action needs to be taken against you

Lenin Dharmananda: I have travelled around 80 thousand kms with Nithyananda. I was the organizer for 130 centers of his youth foundation and jeevan mukthi book release plan. Not only in India but even the devotees of other countries know that I have travelled with Nithyananda extensively. Therefore they also know that I know more about Nithyananda.

The earlier devotees all know that the cd that I had released is original. Many of them have/are contacting me and says ,’ We all were believing Nithyananda to be the avathar (god). Even an ordinary man will accep his mistake if he is caught committing a mistake. that’s our tamil culture. But Nithyananda whom we believed to be god commits mistakes again and again and casually lies that these cds are fake and that graphics have been used like the movie avathar. when we see all these we wonder as to how did we ever went behind him! we feel so ashamed”. They say this over phone also.

Ok sir. If Nithyananda proves that these cds are fake, I will go where ever he calls me and will stand in front of him. He can bring thousands of people and pelt me with stones and kill me. I am ready. At the same times if it is proved in the court that these cds are original, is Nithyananda ready to accept any punishment? Is he ready for this challenge?

Q Nithyananda’s side says the cd which exposed him to be fake. On what grounds are you saying that these cds are original?

Lenin Dharmananda: I know the truth since I have seen all the original videos recorded. So the CDs are original. I risked my life just to expose Nithyananda who was raping many young women in the name of spirituality. That camera functions only when there is an activity. whenever Nithyananda was with Ranjitha in that room, the camera filmed them. Nithyananda is extremely intelligent in criminal matters. Those who have watched the cd know that at one stage nithyananda points to the camera and says something to Ranjitha. The reason for this was, he had a slight doubt. Ranjitha turns the airpurifier and places it with the camera facing the other way. that’s why the camera stopped the filming of that day’s further activity.

The Bangalore CID police team have confirmed that these cds are completely original. The CIDs have the report that the people in bed in that cd are Nithyananda and Ranjitha. There is news that the CID team has sent the cds to the central government laboratory-New Delhi for verification and have submitted to the court the certificate received from the lab after examination and that the cds are original. What more proof is needed?

Q You are a Christian by name Lenin. Nithyananda side says that you have been instigated to enter into this act by the Christian Vatican head and that you have been paid millions of dollars for this?

Lenin Dharmananda: How can I be called a Christian just because I have the name Lenin? My father is with a communist CBI organization. He is close friend of T.Pandian. If you look at social context I belong to Vanniar Hindu community. Nithyananda is trying to hide his mistakes by saying irrelevant things. It will be proved that he is lying. He is going to be the loser.

Q: There is a complaint against you that you are against Hindu religion and that you are working against Hindu dharma to spoil it?

Lenin Dharmananda: I am a Hindu. Hindu community will be cursed if its represented by scoundrels like Nithyananda. That’s the reason I did what I did. I wanted to expose the fraud who is wearing Saffron robes (kavi) claiming to be the protector Hindu Dharma was indulging in raping women. I did this with the intention that if this fraud is exposed, Hindu Dharma’s impurity will be cleared and its purity will be reclaimed.

Nithyananda got recognition as service organizations for his ahrams/organizations of other countries including USA by claiming that the organization has no profit making intention. But there are companies in his name in USA and in Malaysia. If there is no profit making intention then why has he resistered these properties in his name? How can Nithyananda who has craving for women and money, be a savior of Hindu Dharma? Only his activities are against Hindu Dhrama and are spoiling the name of Hindu Dharma.

Q: you are telling about Nithyananda’s activities in an orderly way. You are also presenting the proof for these activities. But Nithyananda who is out on bail, has started his usual activities in the ashram: he is conducting yagam. he is making plans to get back his old lost image. Are you considering that your efforts have failed because of this?

Lenin Dharmananda: You need to understand one thing. After coming to know that he is caught in the video in close contact with Ranjitha, he contacted me and said ‘ don’t release the cd. Come back to the ashram. I will give you whatever you want”. Even that conversation has been recorded and is with me as proof. I have surrendered that tape also to the police.

I have surrendered to the police, the sex contract documents which were made to sign by the women devotees. I feel, as an individual, my work and protest is over. From now on it’s the work of law and justice. I strongly believe that Nithyananda who was committing crime in the name of spirituality will be punished appropriately. The time will teach Nithyananda that temporary victories are never permanent.

Q: Since you are presenting many proofs against Nithyananda’s criminal activities, it is being said that you are receiving continuous threats from Nithyananda’s side?

Lenin Dharmananda: Yes, it’s true. I am the complainant of Nithyananda’s case. Since I am the important witness, I am being continuously threatened indirectly by Nithyananda who is on bail and his people. I don’t know what their intentions are. If anything happens to me or the people around me, only Nithyananda is completely/ fully responsible.

""நித்யானந்தாவுக்கு சவால்!''-லெனின் தர்மானந்தா

கண்ணில்பட்டதையெல்லாம் சுருட்டிய திருடன் யாரும் தன்னை அடையாளம் கண்டுவிடக்கூடாது என்பதற்காக திருடன்...திருடன்.. என்று கத்திக்கொண்டே ஓடி, மக்களை திசைதிருப்பினான் என்று கிராமப்புறத்தில் சொல்வ துண்டு. நித்யானந்தா சாமியார் விவகாரத்தில் இப்போது அப்படித்தான் நடந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறது. நித்தியும் ரஞ்சிதாவும் நெருக்கமாக உள்ள காட்சிகள் அடங்கிய சி.டி போலி யானது என்றும், அவதார் படம் போல கிராஃபிக்ஸ் முறை யில் தயாரிக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறது என்றும், இந்த லீலைகள் வெளிவரக் காரணமான லெனின் (எ) தர்மானந்தாவை போலீசார் கைது செய்து நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கவேண்டும் என்றும் பிடதி ஆசிரமத்தில் மிச்சமிருக்கும் சிலரைத் தூண்டி விட்டிருக்கிறார் நித்தி. இவர்கள் பெங்களூரு போலீசாரிடம் புகார் கொடுத்திருப்பதுடன், திடீர் மறியல் செய்தும் புது பரபரப்பை கிளப்பப் பார்த்தனர்.

நித்யானந்தாவின் உண்மை சொரூபத்தை வெளிக் கொண்டு வந்ததில் முக்கியமானவரான லெனின் தர்மானந்தா வை சந்தித்து அவர் மீதான புகார்களுக்கு என்ன பதில் என்று கேட்டோம். பிசிறில்லாத வார்த்தைகளுடன் தங்குதடை யின்றி கொட்டின பதில்கள்.

நித்தியானந்தாவும் ரஞ்சிதாவும் நெருங்கியிருக்கும் வீடியோ காட்சிகள் போலியானவை என்றும் இது வெளிவரக் காரண மான உங்கள் மீது நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும் என்றும் புகார் தரப்பட்டு, போராட்டங்கள் நடந்துள்ளதே?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : நித்தியானந்தருடன் 80ஆயிரம் கிலோமீட்டர் ஒன்றாக சுற்றுப் பயணம் செய்தவன் நான். அவருடைய இளைஞர் அமைப்பிற்கும் ஜீவன் முக்தி புத்தக வெளியீட்டுத் திட்டத்திற்குமான 130 மையங்களுக்கு நான்தான் ஒருங் கிணைப்பாளன். தமிழகத்தில் மட்டுமல்ல, வெளிமாநிலங்களிலும் அயல்நாடுகளிலும் உள்ள சீடர்களுக்கும் நான் நித்யானந்தருடன் தொடர்ந்து சுற்றியது தெரியும். அதனால் நித்தியானந்தரைப் பற்றிய எல்லா விவரங்களும் எனக்குத் தெரியும் என்பதும் அவர்களுக்கும் தெரியும்.

நான் வெளியிட்டிருப்பது ஒரிஜினல் சி.டிதான் என்பது முன்னாள் சீடர்கள் எல் லோருக்கும் தெரிந்திருக்கிறது.அவர்களில் பலரும் என்னைத் தொடர்புகொண்டு, "நித்யானந்தரை கடவுளின் அவதாரமாக நாங்களெல்லாம் நினைத்துக்கொண்டிருந் தோம். சாதாரண மனிதர்கள்கூட ஒரு தப்பு செய்து சிக்கிக்கொண்டால், தான் செய்தது தப்பு என்பதை ஒப்புக்கொள்வது தமிழ் நாட்டுக்கலாச்சாரம். ஆனால், கடவுளின் அவதாரமாக நினைத்த நித்தியானந்தர் தப்பு மேல் தப்பு செய்துவிட்டு, இதெல்லாம் போலி சி.டி, அவதார் படம் போல கிராஃபிக்ஸ் வேலை என்று எவ்வளவு பெரிய பொய்யை ரொம்ப சர்வசாதா ரணமாகச் சொல்கிறார்! இதையெல்லாம் பார்க்கும்போது இவர் பின்னாலயா நாம் போனோம்னு எங்களுக்கு வெட்கமா இருக்கு'ன்னு போனில் பேசுறாங்க.

சரிங்க சார்.. இந்த சி.டி போலி என நித்யானந்தர் நிரூபிக்கட்டும். அவர் எங்கே கூப்பிடுகிறாரோ அங்கே வந்து நிற்கிறேன். எத்தனை ஆயிரம் பேரை வேண்டுமானா லும் அவர் கூட்டிக்கிட்டு வந்து என்னைக் கல்லால் அடித்துக் கொல்லட்டும் நான் தயார். அதே நேரத்தில், இந்த சி.டி. ஒரி ஜினல் என்பது கோர்ட்டில் நிரூபண மானால், எந்த தண்ட னையாக இருந்தாலும் நித்தியானந்தா ஏற்கத் தயாரா? சவாலுக்கு அவர் ரெடியா?எந்த சி.டியால் நித்யானந்தா அம்பலப்பட்டாரோ அதை அவர் தரப்பு போலி என்கிறது. நீங்கள் எந்த அடிப்படையில் அந்த சி.டி ஒரிஜினல் என்கிறீர்கள்?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : அந்தக் காட்சிகளை ரகசியமாக எடுத்தவன் நான்தான் என்பதால் அது ஒரிஜினல் என்பது எனக்குத் தெரியும். ஆன்மீகத்தின் பெயரில் பல பெண்களை கற்பிழக்கச் செய்த நபரை உலகுக்கு அடையாளம் காட்டவேண்டும் என்பதற்காக உயிரைப் பணயம் வைத்து அந்த முயற்சியில் இறங்கினேன். ஏர் ப்யூரிஃபயர் கேமராவை அவரது அறையில் செட் பண்ணினேன். அது ஆள்நடமாட்டம் உள்ள நேரத்தில் மட்டும்தான் இயங்கும். எப்போதெல்லாம் நித்தியானந்தர் ரஞ்சிதாவுடன் அந்த அறையில் இருந்தாரோ அப்போது அது படம் பிடித்தது.நித்தியானந்தர் கிரிமினல்தனமான விஷயங்களில் பயங்கர புத்திசாலி. அந்த சி.டியைப் பார்த்தவர்களுக்குத் தெரியும். ஒரு கட்டத்தில், கேமரா செட் பண்ணியிருந்த இடத்தைக் காட்டி ரஞ்சிதாவிடம் ஏதோ சொல்வார். அவருக்கு லேசாக டவுட் வந்ததுதான் இதற்கு காரணம். ரஞ்சிதாவோ அந்த ஏர் ப்யூரிஃபயரை திருப்பி வைத்துவிடுவார். அன்றைய வீடியோவில் அதற்கு மேல் காட்சிகள் இருக்காது.

பெங்களூரில் இந்த வழக்குகளை விசாரித்துவரும் சி.ஐ.டி. போலீசார் இது முழுக்க முழுக்க ஒரிஜினல் என்பதை உறுதி செய்துவிட்டார்கள். நித்தியானந்தரும் ரஞ்சிதாவும் படுக்கையில் இருப்பது உண்மைதான் என்றும் ரிப்போர்ட் அவர்களிடம் இருக் கிறது. அவர்கள் இதன் ஒரிஜினல்தன்மையை அறிவதற்காக டெல்லியில் உள்ள மத்திய அரசின் தடயஅறிவியல் துறையினரிடம் ஒப்படைத்து, ஆய்வு செய்து.. ஒரிஜினல்தான் என சர்டிபிகேட் வாங்கி கோர்ட்டில் கொடுத்திருப்பதாக தகவல்கள் தெரிவிக்கின்றன. இதற்கு மேல் என்ன ஆதாரம் வேண்டும்?

லெனின் என்ற பெயர் கொண்ட கிறிஸ்தவரான நீங்கள், வாட்டிகனில் இருந்து கிறிஸ்தவ தலைமையின் துணையுடன் இந்த செயலில் ஈடுபட்டதாகவும் இதற்காக பல ஆயிரம் டாலர்கள் உங்க ளுக்குத் தரப்பட்டதாகவும் நித்யா னந்தர் தரப்பு சொல்கிறதே?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : லெனின் என்று பெயர் இருந்தால் கிறிஸ்தவரா? என் அப்பா ஒரு கம்யூனிஸ்ட். சி.பி.ஐ. இயக்கத்தில் இருக்கிறார். தோழர் தா.பாண்டியனுக்கு மிகவும் நெருக்கமானவர். சமுதாய ரீதியாகப் பார்த்தால் நான் வன்னி யர் ஜாதியைச் சேர்ந்த இந்து. நித்தியானந்தர் தன் தவறை ஒப்புக்கொள்ளாமல் அதை மறைப்பதற்காக எதையெதையோ சொல்லிப் பார்க்கிறார். அவர் சொல்வதெல்லாம் பொய் என்பது நிரூபணமாகும். அவர் தோற்றுத் தான் போவார்.

இந்து மதத்திற்கு எதி ராகவும் அதன் பெயரைக் கெடுப்பதற்காகவும்தான் நீங்கள் இப்படி செயல்பட்டிருப்பதாக வும் குற்றம்சாட்டுகிறார்களே?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : நான் ஒரு இந்து. இந்த மதம் இப்படிப்பட்ட அயோக்கியர் களிடம் சிக்கினால் இழிவுதான் மிஞ்சும் என்பதால்தான் இந்த காரியத்தில் இறங்கினேன். காவி உடை போட்டுக்கொண்டு , இந்து மதத்தின் பாதுகாவலன் என்று சொல்லிக்கொண்டு பெண்களின் கற்பைச் சூறையாடும் அயோக்கியத்தனம் அம்பலமானால்தான் இந்து மதத்தில் உள்ள கசடுகள் நீங்கி,அதன் புனிதம் காக்கப்படும் என்று இதைச் செய்தேன். லாப நோக்கமில்லாத நிறுவனங்களை நடத்துவதாகச் சொல்லித்தான் அமெரிக்க உள்ளிட்ட வெளிநாடுகளில் தன்னுடைய ஆசிரமத்திற்கு அங்கீகாரம் வாங்கியிருக்கிறார் நித்தியானந்தர். ஆனால் அவ ருடைய பெயரிலேயே அமெரிக் காவில் 5 கம்பெனிகளும், மலேசியாவில் 1 கம்பெனியும் இருக்கிறது. லாப நோக்கமில்லை என்றால் தன் பெயரில் எதற்கு சொத்துகளைப் பதிவு செய்ய வேண்டும்? பெண்ணாசையும் பொன்னாசையும் கொண்டு அலையும் நித்யானந்தர் எப்படி இந்து மதத்தின் பாதுகாவலராக இருப்பார்? அவருடைய செயல்கள்தான் இந்து மதத்திற்கு எதிராகவும் அதன் பெயரைக் கெடுக்கும் விதத்திலும் உள்ளன.

நித்யானந்தரின் செயல்பாடுகளை அடுக்கடுக்காகச் சொல்கிறீர்கள். அதற்கான ஆவணங்களையும் முன் வைக்கிறீர்கள். ஆனால், நித்யானந்தர் பெயிலில் வெளிவந்து பிடதி ஆசிரமத்தில் மீண்டும் வழக்கமான வேலைகளைத் தொடங்கிவிட்டார். யாகங்கள் நடத்துகிறார். பழைய இமேஜ் கிடைப்பதற்கான திட்டங்களை வகுத்துக்கொண்டிருக்கிறார். இதனால், உங்கள் முயற்சிகள் தோற்றுவிட்டன என நினைக்கிறீர்களா?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : ஒன்றை நீங்க புரிஞ்சுக்கணும். ரஞ்சிதாவுடன் நெருக்கமாக உள்ள வீடியோ காட்சிகளை எடுத்துவிட்டோம் என்று தெரிந்ததும் நித்தியானந்தர் என்னைத் தொடர்பு கொண்டு, அந்த சி.டியை ரிலீஸ் பண்ணிடாதே.. நீ ஆசிரமத்துக்கு வா. நீ என்ன கேட்டாலும் தர்றேன்னு பேசினார். அந்தப் பேச்சும் என்கிட்டே ஆதாரப் பூர்வமா இருக்கு. அதையும் நான் போலீஸ்கிட்டே ஒப்படைச்சிருக்கேன். ஆசிரமத்தில் சேரும் பெண் களிடம் செக்ஸ் ஒப்பந்தம் போட்டது தொடர் பாகவும் பல ஆவணங்களை தந்துள்ளேன். ஒரு தனி மனிதனாக என்னுடைய வேலையும் போராட்டமும் முடிந்துவிட்டது என்றே நினைக்கிறேன். இனிமேல் சட்டமும் நீதியும் சரியாக செயல்பட்டு, ஆன்மீகப் போர்வையில் மோசடிகள் பல செய்த நித்யானந்தருக்கு கடுமையான தண்டனை வாங்கித்தரும் என உறுதியாக நம்புகிறேன். தற்காலிக வெற்றிகள் ஒரு போதும் நிரந்தரமாகாது என்பதை நித்தியானந்தருக்கு காலம் எடுத்துச் சொல்லும்.

நீங்கள் முன்வைக்கும் ஆதாரபூர்வமான குற்றச்சாட்டுகளால், நித்யானந்தர் தரப்பிலிருந்து தொடர் அச்சுறுத்தல்களும் மற்ற வகையான மிரட்டல்களும் வருவதாகச் சொல்லப் படுகிறதே?

லெனின் தர்மானந்தா : உண்மைதான். நித்யானந்தர் தொடர்பான முக்கிய வழக்குகளின் புகார்தாரர் நான்தான். அந்த வழக்குகளின் முக்கிய சாட்சியான என்னை, பெயிலில் வெளிவந்திருக்கும் நித்யானந்தரும் அவரது ஆட்களும் மறைமுகமாக மிரட்டிக்கொண்டிருக்கிறார்கள். அவர்களின் நோக்கம் என்னவென்று தெரியவில்லை. எனக்கோ, என்னுடன் இருப்பவர்களுக்கோ ஏதாவது நடந் தால் அதற்கு முழுப் பொறுப்பும் நித்யானந்தா தான்

Nithyananda followers file complaint against Lenin

Nithyananda followers file complaint against Lenin

Followers of self-styled godman Nithyananda Swami have filed a complaint in a local court against a former devotee, who shot the alleged footage showing him in a compromising position with an actress, seeking immediate action against him.
Failing to get their FIR registered, a follower along with a lawyer and a supporter proceeded to Magistrate Court in Ramanagara, on Saturday and filed a private complaint against Lenin, the followers said in a press release here.
The court has taken cognizance of the complaint and called for a sworn-in statement to be made by September four, the release said.
The followers alleged that they had tried to file an FIR against Lenin Karuppan but police refused to register it. A similar attempt to approach the office of the Superintendent of Police also met with the same result, the release said.
The followers alleged that Lenin had continued to abuse Nithyananda and the organisation in public and private forums accusing him of sexual misconduct.
Nithyananda was embroiled in a controversy after a purported video footage showing him in a compromising position with a Tamil actress was aired on some local TV channels in March. Cases of rape and other offences were registered against him in Tamil Nadu and transferred to Karnataka.

It is appalling on part of Nityananda and his supporters yearning to file a complaint against Lenin. On the other hand Lenin has only done a world of good by revealing the fake godman and police did the right by not filing the FIR against Lenin. It is high time Nityananda and his people realise that by trying to retaliate against Lenin they are showing they have not advanced an inch in spirituality. It is nothing short of politics. Disgrace! Deception!

Who are these "followers" or "devotees" ???? Basically,those who have no other source of income/job and need to hang around a fake swami to find a livelihood.Isn't this guy already exposed well enough? Thanks to Mr.Lenin Kurupp for that!

Any body who has a little common sense will not even like to utter the so called lawless idiot Nityanandha's name who is a disgrace to Hinduism. I wonder how much these so called devotees are paid by this man to bring back his fame. People should stop blindly following and pouring money to any one who wears a saffron cloth, does some basic yoga, give basic Bhagavad Gita lessons.

Sarath, you are right that each relegion has its own issues. But that does not mean that Sex Manian Nitya can do anything, get away and still be called a Paramahamsa... he should be called ParamaSexa. We as true Hindus should teach this guy not to play with peoples faith.
