Nithyananda not “sacked”, but ‘stepped down’ from Madurai Adheenam!

Contrary to media reports, spiritual leader Paramahamsa Nithyananda, popularly known as Swami Nithyananda has not been “sacked” as the 293rd pontiff of the Madurai Adheenam; the oldest Saivite mutt established more than 1,500 years ago in South India.

Instead, he voluntarily offered to step down, after which the current pontiff Arunagirinatha Desikar announced Nithyananda’s exit.

Reacting to incorrect reports that the controversial self-styled godman was “sacked” as the next pontiff of Madurai Adheenam, his spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar clarified, “Nithyananda had himself offered to resign from the post. His exit seems right as he understood that technical issues surrounding his anointment could be taking its toll on the elderly senior pontiff’s frail health, peace of mind, or his position as the current head of the mutt.”

In view of the recent submission of the Tamil Nadu government that under the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Act, two individuals cannot jointly hold the position of pontiff of Madurai Adheenam, the senior pontiff agreed to revoke the appointment of Swami Nithyananda.

Refuting rumours that the Swami’s supporters could cause trouble to inmates of the mutt, the spokesperson remarked, “Nithyananda advocates peace and happiness. He would never want any untoward incident. Through his ashram Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam in Bangalore, he will carry on and continue with his work and mission to serve humanity”.

Nithyananda is also rumoured to be on the current season of Bigg Boss to spread his message. However, Bhagwagar refused to confirm or deny that.
