Nityananda said, “Kailaasa was established in the spirit of the Sovereign Order of Malta, a borderless service-oriented nation-like nation.”
The Sovereign Order of Malta is one of the oldest institutions in Western and Christian civilization and has diplomatic relations with over 110 countries, and permanent observer status at the United Nations.
Though pictures and videos of Kailash’s delegates at the UN meeting in Geneva went viral, they were not recognized by the global body.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights responded to Kailash’s participation and said that registration for such public events is open to NGOs and the general public.
Nithyananda calls himself the “Revival of Kailash”, the “highest priest of Hinduism, and claims to have been initiated, trained and ordained by competent traditional Hindu authorities.”
According to the press release, “He was recognized at an early age as an avatar according to Hinduism, just as the Dalai Lama was recognized.”
Nithyananda is wanted in India on multiple charges of rape and sex arrest – allegations he has claimed are “absolutely false”. In his statement, he cited human rights advocates and the UK’s world-renowned Queen’s Counsel, Geoffrey Robertson.
““Reports about harassment usually arise from the demonization of their leader and guru as a result of false sexual abuse allegations by media and state government officials,” Nithyananda quoted Mr. Robertson as saying.
The self-styled godman also claimed that he had been proven innocent by a California court in 2013, and cited Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which states that “everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.” shall have the right to liberty”.
The fugitive accused of rape also claimed that there was a threat to his life due to going to a safe place from behind.
