Landgrabbing attempt at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam Hyderabad ashram

Share |

This is to clarify regarding the false news being telecast in some channels about alleged land-grabbing by Nithyananda in relation to the Hyderabad ashram.


The Hyderabad ashram stands on the property gifted by Lt. Smt. Sujatha Reddy, in the absolute irrevocable gift settlement deed No. 1032/2006, dt. 23 January 2006. The donor clearly indicated in her gift deed that she was desirous of Nithyananda carrying on various spiritual and social service activities in the temple and hence donated the property. The patta documents also clearly show the transfer of ownership of the land from the donors to Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam.


Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam has been conducting various service activities in the Hyderabad ashram including providing anna daan (free food), arogya daan (free medical camps including specialty camps), gnana daan (free education and tuition to the needy and underprivileged kids from nearby villages with free food, free coaching for 10th standard students and intermediate students in the subjects of their choice, free spoken English classes, agriculture workshops for farmers, etc), as well as disaster relief activities. The ashram also conducts various spiritual services like daily pujas, special pujas, meditation and yoga workshops, spiritual counseling, etc.


Due to the fast developments in and around the area, especially it being close to the Shamshabad International airport, the property drew the attention of land-grabbers. The donor herself is now no more but her family made attempts since October 2010 to take over the property illegally by trespassing, forcing themselves into the temple, threatening the resident ashramites to leave their religious practices as well as the property. The ashram lodged a complaint about these illegal activities at the local police station on 14 November 2010 and the criminal petition against the same is pending the Court in Rangareddy district. A similar prior attempt had been made on 12 May 2010 as well where the ashramites were assaulted.


The Hon’ble Court of the Additional Junior Civil Judge, Rangareddy District, therefore, granted a temporary injunction on 22 November 2010, restraining the trespassing and granting Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam peaceful possession of the property. On 23 February 2012, the Court passed the permanent injunction order in favor of Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam.


Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam continues to provide its social and spiritual services at the Hyderabad ashram, thereby providing people with a better, blissful life.
