Self-styled godman Swami Nithyananda has banned devotees from India to enter his Island ‘Kailasa’, a Hindu sovereign nation amid COVID-surge.
A purported executive order directly from the Kailasa has been doing rounds on social media. The order says, due to the second and third wave of coronavirus all the embassies of KAILASA in countries from Brazil, European Union , Malaysia and India are sealed and no public will be allowed to enter Kailasa until further notice.
Swami Nithyananda’s Executive order from Kailasa
In the latest statement, he wrote, “All Kailasians, Ekailasians, volunteers associated with these de facto embassies of Kailasa are to quarantine themselves and adhere to the precautionary measures advised by the local laws.”
In a video that went viral last year, the godman could be heard saying that he has begun operating charter flight services called ‘Garuda’ from Australia to his island “nation”.
The order has evoked hillarious jokes and memes on social media. Kailasaa, 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.’
Nithyananda has been hiding on the island located off the coast of Ecuador since 2019. He absconded after being accused of sexual assault. Since then, Nithyananda has appealed to the United Nations to declare the Kailasa as a separate country.
