HC bans entry of self-styled godman Nithyananda into Madurai Aadheenam
The Madurai bench of the Madras High court on Wednesday, by an interim order, categorically restrained Nithyananda, founder of Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam, Thiruvanamalai, or any one claiming under him, from interfering or entering the Madurai Aadheenam Mutt here.
“This Court, prima facie, is of the view that despite the orders of the honourable division bench of this court as well as the order of the learned single Judge of this court, the eight respondent (Nithyananda) is illegally attempting to interfere with the administration of the Mutt,” said Justice R Mahadevan in the order.
The petitioner Jagathalapradapan, founder trustee of Madurai Meenakshi Children Trust said he was the follower of 292th pontiff Arunagirinatha Sri Gnanasambandan Desika Prama Achariya Swamigal.
