What a gross tragedy it is when you find a demon practicing sainthood with a bluff to thousands of his followers. It is so common in a country like India, the most original centre of Vedic philosophy and oriental metaphysics. One is a satanic demon, no problem as it is one of the thousands of entities on earth, but what hell of a business he has to pose himself as a divine figure blindfolding a full fledged flood of the devotees not only at the national level but internationally too. Such practitioners are nothing but the worst kind of criminals deserving to be booked for a virtual hell as even the maximum punishment awardable in terms of India Law like death sentence is not enough for them.
One Swami Nityanand was recently appointed as Mahamandaleshwar by the Panchayati Akhara Mahanirvani, most covetous a position in the Akhara, at Mahakumbh at Sangam, Allahabad. He is the same Swami who was arrested by the police on account of his involvement in a sex scandal targeting his girl disciples in 2010. He was released on bail and the case is still pending. It’s like a professional criminal when he claims that unless the charges against him are legally proved he cannot be branded as an accused. Earlier also when he was appointed as a pointiff of Madurai Adheenam Math in Tamil Nadu, he was removed from the post as a result of large scale protests as from people in general against his shady deals. He claims to be a great spiritual guru, and the irony is that such a position of his is accepted in real terms by his devotees. Swamees like him are an infectious disease for the culture and the society requiring to be dealt with in strictest possible measures available in terms of the criminal laws of the country enabling the public to get rid of the demons wearing the robe of a sadhu.
