A website has popped up, suggesting that self-styled godman, Nithyananda, who is evading arrest by Gujarat Police, has established a new country, Kailaasa.

Nithyananda has been charged with kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children to make them collect donations for his Ashram in Ahmedabad.

The website, that goes by the name Kailaasa, describes the new Hindu Nation as one without borders and created by "dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries".

Nithyananda, who is also accused of raping one of his disciples, is described as the founder of the Kailaasa nation and "reviver of the enlightened civilisation".

The location of Kailaasa nation is not known, but the website says it has a population of "100 million Adi Shaivites and 2 Billion practising Hindu" who speak English, Tamil and Sanskrit.

Nithayanda's supposed government has 10 departments including Homeland and Security, Finance, Enlightened Civilisation. This 'country' also claims to eventually have a 'Dharmic Economy', and a Hindu Investment and Reserve Bank, where cryptocurrency will be accepted.

It also calls for donations for the country and through it, an opportunity to gain citizenship of the "greatest Hindu nation", Kailaasa.

The website also proclaims that it has its own passport and one can apply to be a citizen of Kailaasa. "The citizens will be given a Kailaasa passport which, by the grace of Paramashiva, the holder of this passport is allowed free entry in all eleven dimensions and fourteen lokas, including Kailaasa," it said.

Nithyananda's supposed nation has a flag and an emblem of its own.

The website also talks about the "persecution of Hindus" by "foreign invaders" and features articles on the subject.

The website describes the vision, foundation, purpose and the structure of Kailaasa, but there is no information about where it is located.
