Issue a Most Wanted Notice for Controversial Godman

Target: Christopher A. Wray, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Goal: Arrest a self-styled spiritual guru for allegedly duping the City of Newark.

A self-proclaimed godman has allegedly duped more than 30 US cities into entering a cultural partnership agreement with a fictional country, called the United States of Kailasa (USK). The City of Newark entered a sister city agreement with USK this year at a signing ceremony hosted at the City Hall. The official website of USK reports other major US cities, including Dayton, Ohio; Richmond, Virginia; and Buena Park, Florida to have entered into a pact with USK. Reports also indicate that at least three members of the Congress recognize USK as a real country. Representatives Troy Balderson, David Valadao, and Norma Torres might have awarded a ‘special congressional recognition’ to USK. Representatives from Kailasa were also seen attending a United Nations meeting in Geneva.

Apparently, USK is a country off the coast of Ecuador. However, the Ecuadorian government had clarified that Nithyananda has not been granted asylum. His passport had been canceled by the Indian government, besides rejecting the application for a new document. The Indian foreign ministry had instructed all missions abroad to locate Nithyananda. The City of Newark rescinded the sister city agreement after realizing the circumstances. The UN human rights office has stated that submissions made by representatives of USK are ‘irrelevant,’ and have no place in the final outcome drafts of its Geneva conference.

Nithyananda is wanted on charges of rape and abduction in India. The Interpol had issued a Blue Corner notice on the international fugitive. The official Twitter of Nithyananda remains active. The so-called supreme pontiff of Hinduism recently congratulated Xi Jinping after he was re-elected as the President of China. As the Newark incident became public, the Twitter handle blamed ‘Hinduphobia and racism in the media.’ In addition, the statement also accused the media of spreading ‘disinformation, hate speech, and religious shaming.’

It remains a mystery how a well-known individual has been evading the legal system, and that too, in style. Sign this petition to demand the FBI investigate the absconding godman and help bring him to justice.


Dear Director Wray,

A self-proclaimed godman has allegedly duped over 30 US cities to enter into a cultural agreement with a fictional country off the coast of Ecuador. The City of Newark recently realized the mistake and rescinded the sister city pact with the United States of Kailasa. USK is reportedly engaged in a cultural exchange agreement with other US cities including Ohio, Richmond, Dayton, Virginia, Buena Park.

Nithyananda is wanted for rape and kidnapping in India. The Interpol had also issued a Blue Corner Notice against him. Apparently, no one has a clue where he is, yet his Twitter handle remains active. He has also been reportedly awarded special congressional recognition by representatives Troy Balderson, David Valadao, and Norma Torres.

We demand the FBI investigate this incident of high-profile forgery and issue a most wanted notice.
