Open Letter to All Editors and Bureaucrats
Petition Against Sandesh Newspaper & false news coverage by Indian Media

This is with reference to the article published in Sandesh Newspaper on 10 November 2009 along with derogatory cartoon defaming Pujya Sant Shree Asaramji Bapu. We would like to point out that there has been obtrusively evident unbalanced reporting and rigorous misinformation at the hands of local media and 24/7 news channels.Our religious sentiments have been deeply hurt.

At the outset, we would like to inform the Media & Government, should understand their responsibility and should not take the liberty at all to defame any person / institution for the sake of attracting and catching more and more eyes of the readers/garner more votes. The Media should not manipulate the NEWS and should always bring the true picture in front of the public. They should always keep in mind that whatever is written by them has a great impact on the minds of the readers and your credibility is at stake.

Media has been given the right to expression by the Constitution and the same should not be misused by the Media. Some traitors for their own benefits misguide the public by misusing their powers.

Shri Ramchandra Bhatt, a MBA graduate from UK and two more sadhaks, Shri Shankar Purohit & Shri H. Manjappa have restored to Amaranan Anshan Aevam Dharna (Indefinite Hunger Strike) to protest against such publications by Sandesh since 12 November 2009 10pm IST. (TODAY IS DAY 7)

We support the cause taken by Shri Ramchandra Bhatt and others & demand for action on the following matters:

1) Take immediate and appropriate action against Mr. Raju Chandaakh based on his comments and evidence clearly exposed in sting operation CD. Watch video at http://alturl.com/t58w)

2) Immediate action against Sandesh Newspaper for publishing defamatory cartoons & circulating derogatory false rumors in spite of being exposed by Mr Raju Chandaakh in the CD.(www.ashram.org/press)

3) To withdraw the case registered by the CID (crime) department in the deaths of Dipesh and Abhishek filed under section 304 (homicide) and other sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Juvenile Protection Act against 7 members of the ashram.

4) Mr Falgun Patel, the editor cum owner of Sandesh Limited to publish an apology on front page of Sandesh newspaper for all the defamatory articles and recent cartoon published and also take back all the allegations made against Pujya Bapuji in the last few months. In addition to that, the newspaper promises that if they publish such articles in future their license should be revoked.
