Litigant Guru of Gwinnett, Georgia Loses Lawsuit


Litigation has not proved the path to spiritual enlightment for self-described guru, Annamalai Annamalai, who goes by the title Dr. Commander Selvam according to the report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Apparently Fulton County, Georgia Superior Court Judge Kimberly M. Esmond Adams dismissed the Gwinnett County, Georgia Guru's defamation lawsuit against Gita Kotecha and Basant Tariyal, two leaders in the local Hindu community who criticized Dr. Commander Selvam on a local news show.  The defendants said that "Annamalai, who charges fees of hundreds or thousands of dollars for prayer services and horoscope readings -- gives Hindu priests a bad name and does not represent the Hindu faith."  The Superior Court not only dismissed the Guru's lawsuit but Judge Adams imposed $11,000 in sanctions against both the guru and his attorney.  Apparently this lawsuit is one of dozens the guru has filed against former followers and critics.

  4. This Swami has started another Hindu Temple, FAR away from Atlanta in Dayton, Ohio under the name: "Hindu Temple of Ohio". Annamalai Annamalai, who used to by the title Dr. Commander Selvam is now, get this, "Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar" or Selvam Siddhar. This guy has some balls because he has managed to take a full page ad in his self-published magazine called Karma, with a pledge of $51 million to give to anyone who wants to open a Hindu temple anywhere in the world. OF course, he is NOTHING but a big liar, cheat, fraud, scam artist and needs to be deported.

    The sad part is that people keep falling for this guy.

    Attention all Hindus or for that matter anyone who comes near this guy in the United States, India and Canada or anywhere, Stay away from Selvam Siddhar. And, if you want to know his true colors, check out the following links: http://tinyurl.com/24qtt7h

    Selvam Siddhar is none other than scam artist "Dr. Commander Swami" or Annamalai Annamalai.

    He is nothing more than a wig/toupee wearing, bigot, liar, cheat who takes desparate people's money and takes advantage of them.

    Unfortunately, when he was sued, the Georgia state did not indict him and he got away free and clear. However, his former temple "Hindu Temple of Atlanta" is no longer there....

  6. It was actually "Hindu Temple of Georgia" - the "Hindu Temple of Atlanta" is a very legitimate Hindu temple in Riverdale GA, with no relation to Mr Selvam.

  12. I suppose that indigent judgment-proof defendants are no longer imprisoned; debtor's prisons have been outlawed by statute, constitutional amendment, or international human rights treaties in the vast majority of common law jurisdictions.

  13. You know, one who has a tendency to litigate rather than seek non-judicial remedies is called litigious.

  24. EWARE OF Dr.COMMANDER SELVAM AND HIS SIDDHI TIMES MAGAZINE

    DONOT BELIEVE HUNDREDS OF HIS OWN WEBSITES AND SELF GLORIFYING STATEMENTS TO ATTRACT YOUR ATTENTION AND RIPP YOU OFF

    Dr.Commander Selvam also known as “FRAUD SELVAM” exploits the human mankind's belief in GOD and Religion through his Fraud organization called Hindu Temple of Georgia mainly to add a different kind of stress and mental agony to your existing problems in life. “Siddhar” is the only living RAKSHASA of KALIYUGA in USA who cheats people by claiming that he has Atharva Veda background. He is the only RAKSHASA capable of using holy words “Swamiji” and Siddhar” to commit credit card fraud, child molestation and medical malpractice. Crook Selvam has several years of training in looting money from innocent people in Coimbatore, INDIA After mastering how to attract religious people using different media like blogs, magazine, he strategically procures credit card details of devotees through his convincing stereotype speech so that he can charge their credit cards for thousands of dollars without their authorization.

    These cheap pundits sell their soul for the sake of megre salary thar Annamalai gives them.Their main job is to actively create blogs and websites about Dr. Commander Selvam claiming that he can solve all problems ranging from marriage, immigration, blackmagic and even cancer! They also will write some convincing lettres as if they were written by real people who got their problems solved after consulting this crook and fake swamiji- ALL ARE JUST DRAMA TO GET YOUR TRUST AND GET YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS- DO NOT GET BRAIN WASHED BY HIS WEBSITES WHERE HE JUST COPIED CONTENTS FROM SEVERAL RELIGIOUS BOOKS.

    IF YOU FALL PREY TO HIS TRICKS (TANTRA) AND LOST MONEY YOU CAN DISPUTE THE AMOUNT. BUT HE DOES NOT LEAVE YOU THAT EASILY.

    He solves all credit card disputes by his victims in a wonderful way. He sues them up to 15000 USD for each person in family so that they are forced to come to Georgia or he will get a default judgment in his favor. EVEN IF YOU WIN THE CASE, HE WILL NOT RETURN EVEN ONE DOLLAR TO YOU- RATHER APPLY TO NEXT LEVEL OF COURT SO THAT HE CAN INDEFINETELY DELAY AND HOPE TO DIE BEFORE DECADES OF RESOLUTION THROUGH OUR GREAT COURT SYSTEM

    He does a very great cunning tricks to escape from all kinds of problems. If you sue him back, he will even disown his wife, daughter and son to escape from getting summons.

  25. Hi my sister, I am Brother Albert I worked for this evil man at his Hindu Temple
    in Ohio and he never paid me one penny and stole all of my tools. Commander and
    several of his pundits attacked me and hurt the man of God and I fed them and
    clothed them. One day he called me up and said come and get your $10,000 dollars
    that I owe you and me and 2 other men went to get paid but instead of that they
    attacked me and injured my back and shoulder. He recorded me talking to him
    every time I seen him and he edited the recordings. I was charged with 2 counts
    of telephone harrasement. I was found guilty and got fined from the courts and
    placed on probation. Then to top it off he sued me for defamation of character
    and I had no money to defend myself and the courts awarded him a judgement in
    the amount of $45,000. Through all this I lost my home and my wife but I still
    hang on to that unchanging hand of God. He is my rock and my and my strength and
    my shield. I would ask you to stand in
    prayer with me to rid this world of this worker of darkness.
    I speak it into the atmosphere Annamalai Annamali AKA Dr. Commander Selvam will
    be punished for all the wrong doings he has done in this life to the human race.
    Most of all he will suffer in this life & for eternity. My God JESUS & His God
    Lord Shiva will take care of this worker of darkness. Please stand in prayer
    together and continue to pray that our God will remove this evil demon from our
    earth & cast him into the lake of fire for eternity. May God bless each and
    every living soul that stands in Unity to rid this world of this worker of
    iniquity and all the pundits that are helping this shameful worker of darkness.
    The curse is upon him and shall never be removed. Lord Jesus, Lord Shiva, Lord
    Ala father in heaven Lord God.
