Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, fugitive godman Swami Nithyananda has banned Indians from entering ‘Kailasa’.
‘Kailasa’ is his island ‘nation’ often described by his followers as a “the Good God Country” or “Hindu sovereign nation”.
About the island, the website says, “Kailaasa is a nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries.”
‘Kailaasa’ has its own “passport” with the symbols on the passport include the flag of Kailaasa, called Rishabha Dhvaja, and features Nithyananda along with Nandi, Lord Shiva’s mount.
Nithyananda has also banned travellers from Brazil, European Union, and Malaysia.
His ‘Presidential Mandate’, a statement, was released on Twitter:
The tweet accompanying the statement read, “KAILASA’s #PresidentialMandate Executive order directly from the #SPH for all the embassies of #KAILASA across the globe. #COVID19 #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia #CoronaSecondWave #Nithyananda #Kailaasa #ExecutiveOrder.”
In December 2020, Nithyananda had made headlines when he announced a 3-day visa to ‘Kailaasa’ off the coast of Ecuador in South America.
He has even launched his very own ‘Reserve Bank of Kailasa’ with an official currency of the island – ‘Kailashian dollars’.
He has even appealed to the United Nations to declare the ‘Kailasa’ island as a separate country.
A media report said that Nithyananda had recently said that those who made fun of him for going into self-isolation are scrambling to find a place where they can quarantine themselves.
