Nithyananda’s “United States of Kailasa” has signed a “cultural partnership” with over 30 American cities, according to a recent media report. This comes just days after the city of Newark in New Jersey rescinded a “sister-city” agreement with the fake country. Nithyananda, a self-proclaimed godman and fugitive, claims to have established the “United States of Kailasa” in 2019.
According to the Kailasa website, more than 30 American cities have signed a cultural partnership with the fake nation, including Richmond, Virginia, Dayton, Ohio, and Buena Park, Florida. However, Fox News has claimed that the cities that signed the partnership agreement did not verify the information about the country and have been “duped” by Nithyananda.
Jacksonville, North Carolina, responded to Fox News, saying that their proclamations with Kailasa are not an endorsement and are a response to a request. They added that they do not verify the information that is requested. The report also claimed that even people running the federal government are falling for the fake nation. According to Nithyananda, two members of Congress have given Kailasa “special congressional recognition.” Congresswoman Norma Torres of California and Republican Troy Balderson from Ohio are among them.
Earlier this month, the city of Newark rescinded its sister-city agreement with Kailasa after discovering the circumstances surrounding the country. Councilman at Large Luis Quintana sponsored the motion to rescind the agreement, saying that going forward, any city entering into a sister city agreement “must be in good standards of human rights.”
Nithyananda is wanted in India on charges of rape and sexual assault, which he denies. The Kailasa website claims that the country has a population of “two billion practicing Hindus.”
