Madurai Aadheenam IT Enquiry – Clarification

Madurai Aadheenam IT Enquiry – Clarification

06 May 2012, Madurai: This is a clarification with regard to the reports in certain online media & TV channels of an alleged IT raid in Madurai Aadheenam on 6th May 2012.

The visit of certain IT officials to Madurai Aadheenam on 6th May was more in the nature of an enquiry related to the Rs.5 crore amount offered by Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam to the Madurai Aadheenam, as well as a golden throne offered to the 292nd pontiff Guru Maha Sannidhanam Srila Sri Arunagirinatha Sri Jnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal by H.H Srila Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Sri Jnanasambanda Desika Paramacharya Swamigal.

The above mentioned Rs.5 crore will be transferred to the Madurai Aadheenam Trust account shortly. While the Trust has already been registered, Form 80G and other relevant documents are awaited before transferring the amount.

The golden throne offered on the occasion is only a symbolic mark of respect to the 292nd pontiff. The throne itself is made from wood and copper sheet, covered with gold paint.

Some media reports mentioned that cash and incriminating documents were seized from the venue. We would like to clarify that this is false information. No cash or incriminating documents were seized.

We also received a number of specific queries as to whether any vested political interests were behind the IT enquiry. Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam wishes to reserve its comments on this matter.
