Nithyananda Swamiji's spokesman has stated the footage to be a morphed one. March 2 evening shocked the devotees of Swami Paramahamsa Nithyananda. A video footage showing Swamiji and a popular actress involving in a sexual romp was aired on the popular Tamil news channel, The Sun News. The girl in the video is said to be a Tamil actress, who is married to an army man.
Swamiji blames one of his inmates Premananda alias Lenin Karuppan, for the morphing of his face with the idea of defaming him. It is said that Swamiji tried to stop the airing of the video footage but a civil court did not grant any stay. Swamiji's spokesman appeared before the media with the help of the police and confronted that the footage is merely graphics and a morphed one and said that they will move on to court for the defamity caused and will update the inferences in due course of time.
However, the Tamil actress has kept mum on the issue. She has not made any statements regarding the issue. But the followers of Swamiji have been shattered. They broke into his ashram yesterday and burned his banners and others photos. They destroyed the ashram and made it a hell. They claim that he has played with them and left the place only after the police assuring that necessary actions will be taken. One of the devotees said that he was there in his ashram on a summer vacation for 3 months and there he saw Tamil actress with Swamiji all the time.
Nithyananda became a Swami at the very young age of 12. He has more than 10,000 ashrams in 33 countries. Sources say that the source for his income are politicians and celebrities. Whatsoever, the petition has been posted to March 8 for further hearing.
