Fugitive godman Swami Nithyananda has banned Indians from entering ‘Kailasa’, his island 'nation' due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

Nithyananda has also banned travellers from Brazil, European Union, and Malaysia. His statement was released in a video.

In December 2020, Nithyananda had made headlines when he announced a 3-day visa to 'Kailaasa' off the coast of Ecuador in South America. 

When the Covid-19 pandemic struck the world in March this year, Nithyananda had made headlines saying that those who made fun of him for going into self-isolation are scrambling to find a place where they can quarantine themselves, a media report said.

The godman had fled India following sexual misconduct charges, 

While the police were investigating how Nithyananda managed to flee the country when his passport had expired, shockingly, the website says ‘Kailaasa’ has its own “passport”. The symbols on the passport include the flag of Kailaasa, called Rishabha Dhvaja, and features Nithyananda along with Nandi, Lord Shiva’s mount.

    Fugitive Godman Swami Nithyananda is sitting pretty happily in his own world the so called 'Kailasa' . How he disappeared all of a sudden into this unknown world is a mystry! The Government is unable to do anything to bring him back for trials relating to a series of sexual charges against him. No doubt he is a blessed man among the women whom he is able to mesmarise with his magical spells. Not all Godmen are fortunate as swami Nithyanand.
