Controversial Remarks on the Indian Government
In February 2023, she represented the United States of Kailasa at the UN convention in Geneva, Switzerland. In the convention, she accused the Indian government, of persecuting her guru Nithyananda for reviving Hindu traditions. She further asked,
What measures could be taken at the national and international level to prevent the persecution of Nithyananda and the 20 million Hindu migrant population in Kailasa.”
She targeted the Indian government in the convention for which she received criticism.

Later, the UN responded to the queries and said that the inputs given by Vijayapriya were not considered.
