~Approx. 110,000 signatures delivered to the Agency for Cultural Affairs~
In order to remove Kyoshu-sama and Su no Hikari Kyodan from the Sekai Kyusei Kyo umbrella corporation, its Board of Executive Directors who have not obtained authorization from Kyoshu-sama, applied for authorization to make changes to the bylaws of Sekai Kyusei Kyo at the Agency for Cultural Affairs at the end of April with the approval of “Fifth Kyoshu, Nobuyuki Okada” Nobuyuki Watase, which carries religious, moral and legal issues. To this, we at Su no Hikari Kyodan implemented a worldwide signature-collecting campaign showing we absolutely do not recognize Mr. Nobuyuki Watase, who is not related by blood to Meishu-sama, who is a scholar of Hinduism, Emeritus Professor of Research at Tokai University, a trustee of an organization related to MOA and self-proclaimed “Fifth Kyoshu, Nobuyuki Okada.”
Owing to all of you, those who signed reached 109,734 people from 37 countries around the world. On July 11, the legitimate President of Sekai Kyusei Kyo umbrella corporation, Rev. Nakadomari, delivered the signatures to the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
It is through this campaign that approximately 110,000 members around the world made it clear to anyone that there is something wrong with the existence of Mr. Nobuyuki Watase, a scholar of Hinduism, being the “Kyoshu of Sekai Kyusei Kyo.”
