Nodding to the argument that not letting Swami Nithyananda preach was in violation of freedom of speech, Karnataka High Court on Friday, Jul 9 waved a green flag for him to resume preaching again while relaxing his bail conditions.

The sexcapades of the religious guru came to light in Mar 2010 when a sex tape showing him in compromising positions with a woman, reportedly Tamil actress Ranjitha, leaked to the media.
This sparked off public outrage and the police, which initiated a case against him for hurting religious sentiments found plenty of skeletons in his closet amounting to a pile up of a bundle of charges.
