Hindu Temple Leader Facing Life In Prison On 34 Felonies

Behold, the Ron Popeil of Eastern mysticism…

Via WSB-TV: Annamalai Annamalai appeared before Judge Timothy Batten Sr. in federal court in Atlanta Monday for his sentencing hearing…

Annamalai schemed people out of money in several states, officials say. In Georgia, he ran his operation out of the now-defunct Hindu Temple of Georgia in Norcross. They say Annamalai repeatedly charged his customers’ credit cards without their permission and would later falsify documents when those charges were challenged by victims and credit card companies…

Annamalai was convicted in August on 34 felony charges, including bank fraud and money laundering, in connection with his scheme.

Prosecutors say Annamalai used the money to support a lavish lifestyle, including funneling money into bank accounts in India. They say he also concealed assets as he filed for bankruptcy for the Hindu Temple of Georgia in 2009. In all, officials say Annamalai stole more than $2 million.

“Every person he touched, he stung them. He found the most vulnerable of victims and preyed on them for money,” Raghunathan said.

  1. This is how the money is sent to Hindu-right wing organisations in India and around the world. The RSS in India uses this money to commit atrocities on people of other faith and atheists. This flow of money should be checked immediately by law agencies in US, EU and other countries.
