Chinmayi slams those who morphed her pic that of Nithyananda

Chinmayi Sripaada has hit out at social media users who circulated a picture of the singer and her mother along with controversial godman Nithyananda.

Calling it a fake picture, she said, “I dont why these fans are doing this all over again after I have established that this photo is fake. Are they doing this for free or is this paid?”

When a user asked her comment about the sexual charges faced by Nithyananda, she said, “I can do nothing in my individual capaci ty. People should have common sense to not go and flock to these swami cult people who brainwash them, despite repeated evidence on how dangerous these cults / groups are.

Such religious figures prey on the weak minded. There have been multiple women who have come out to expose this man who says he is a Swami / God, whatever, but where is the common sense?

More people flock to him from all this publicity and nothing happens to him legally because he knows powerful people, I guess. I believe in God, (more as a higher power and I am trying to elevate myself spiritually) and not in Godmen. I find them problematic. But what to say when people make Gods out of mere, problematic men. (Man/Men as in the default human).”

She recently slammed a Swiggy delivery boy who asked his customer to put on a dupatta. “Men who need to stare at women’s breasts…Doesn’t look like they got weaned from breastfeeding properly.”

She also tweeted,” The kind of responses for the tweet on a woman wearing a shawl – if you understand/ read Tamizh, should give you an idea of how things are around here.”

In another tweet about the incident she wrote, “Some believe a woman not wearing a Dupatta nudity and invitation to rape. Of course, Twitter doesn’t find this tweet abusive :-)”
