By India Today News Desk: The United States of Kailasa is a “borderless service-oriented nation” and “operates through multiple entities and NGO’s, temples, and monasteries in multiple countries”, the press office of the self-styled godman and the self-proclaimed “Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism”, Nithyananda, told The Washington Post over an email.
This was also videographed and tweeted from Nithyananda’s official Twitter handle.
“We are a revival of the ancient enlightened Hindu civilizational nation and operate through a group of NGOs, recognized by the United Nations, operating from multiple countries across the world. It was established much in the spirit of a country like the Sovereign Order of Malta, a borderless service oriented nation,” the press office said, talking about the ‘nation’ Nithyananda founded.

But how does the nation operate? Does it have elections? Do the citizens have passports, birth certificates and other such documents? “Like the Sovereign Order of Malta, Kailasa operates through multiple entities and NGOs, temples, and monasteries in multiple countries,” the office said.
The allegations against the self-styled godman, who is on the run after several charges of rape and cheating in India, are “absolutely false”, the press office’s statement said.
It claimed: “All such allegations are absolutely false. Many prominent human rights advocates have given independent reports and legal opinions attesting this. Among them is world-renowned Queen’s Council from UK Mr Geoffrey Robertson, who says in this report about the persecution: “It arises more generally from the demonisation of their leader and guru by the media and state government officials as a result of false sexual abuse charges first levelled against him in 2010 and pursued in a manner that amounts to an abuse of process.”

“The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism was proven innocent by the California (USA) Court on April 4, 2013. The court ruled in favor of SPH and fined the false victim nearly half a million dollars in fines,” it further said.
About the city of Newark walking back of the sister-city agreement with Kailasa, the press office said: “We remain committed to our purpose and we remain committed to our purpose towards global peace.”
