Fugitive self-styled godman Swami Nithyananda has stated that devotees from India would not be allowed to enter his island ‘Kailasa’ in view of COVID-19 surge.

The announcement made on Twitter states that the travel ban applies to people from Brazil, European Union and Malaysia, as well

The tweet accompanying the statement read, "KAILASA's #PresidentialMandate Executive order directly from the #SPH for all the embassies of #KAILASA across the globe.

Nithyananda, accused of sexual assault, fled India in 2019 and is hiding in his ‘Virtual Island’ called ‘Kailasa’ located off the coast of Ecuador.

Nithyananda has also appealed to the United Nations to declare the Kailasa as a separate country. Also has issued E-Passport of his country ''Kailasa'.

In August 2020, Nithyananda even launched his very own 'Reserve Bank of Kailasa'. The official currency of the island was declared to be 'Kailashian dollars'. The rape-accused refers to himself as the 'Supreme Pontiff' of Kailasa.

Besides its own cabinet and Prime Minister, the island has a dedicated website. About the island, the website says, "Kailaasa is a nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries."
