Court restrains Nityananda from entering Madurai Aatheenam


Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Monday issued an order restraining Nithyananda from entering the Madurai Mutt or any temple under it either as a junior pontiff or 293rd pontiff and that any such attempt would be violative of the orders of a Division Bench dated October 31, 2012, as well as the order of this court passed on August 19, 2014, which attained finality.

Court allowed a writ petition from M Jagadalaprabhan, an activist of Madurai, seeking an order to this effect. Justice R Mahadevan in his order said that as Nithyananda has admitted and filed an affidavit that he is not the 293rd pontiff of the Mutt, he is not entitled to claim any right as such. Further, as his appointment has been revoked and pending adjudication before a civil court, he has no right to enter into the mutt or any temple under its control either as a junior pontiff or as 293rd pontiff.
