Later, summarising the happenings prior to and from 2 March 2010 when the morphed video involving him and an actress was telecast, Nithyananda revealed for the first time, the incidents of blackmail, threat to life, extortion and harassment meted out to him, his disciples and followers. He revealed details of the astonishing inaction on the part of the appropriate authorities in receiving the complaints of his followers in this regard. He once again set the records straight on the allegations hurled on him since the telecast of the morphed video. Nithyananda revealed details of a criminal complaint filed just hours before the press conference by follower and manager Sri Nithya Atmaprabhananda against Sun TV COO Mr. Hansraj Saxena, Sun Network Mr. Ayyappan, the Tamil bi-weekly Nakkeeran editor R. Gopal and Kamraj, K.Lenin, his co-conspirer Aarthi Rao, Lenin’s brother K.Kumar and one advocate M.Sridhar. Nithyananda however emphasized that there was no conflict between him and the DMK party. He also pledged his full faith in Tamil Nadu Hon’ble CM Ms. J Jayalalitha, stating that he was sure that he would receive justice. Nithyananda said that he has approached the United States Commission of International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) for action against the systematic religious persecution executed on him. He also shared a letter written by his US counsel, also Founder and Chairman of National Indian Lawyers Association of North America and President of Human Rights Commission of Southern California, to the Honb’le Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Ms. J.Jayalalitha stating that IT Experts in the USA have positively concluded the controversial video shown was undoubtedly very sophistically morphed. Nithyananda also played shocking audio recordings of Lenin’s aide Mr. Prasanna Kumar’s monetary demand on behalf of Lenin for closing Nithyananda added that normally any complaint would take as minimum of four hours to complete basic investigation, while surprisingly, Lenin Karuppan’s complaint against him, that too based on here say allegations and outside of the jurisdiction of the alleged offences, was filed, converted to an fir and initiated further action almost instantly; and not to mention that the alleged offence of rape had no victim attached to it!
