Failed at extorting cash and properties, the conspirators go to plan B: release the fake morphed video to the media in attempts to tarnish Swamiji’s reputation.
Years later, when the dust finally settles, the same media channels and tabloids are finally sanctioned by their own regulating bodies and by the courts for knowingly airing the fake video and slander against Swamiji, in attempts to boost their viewership ratings. They’re forced to publicly air apologies, but of course by then nobody cares. The damage is done. And ironically, the main TV channel involved SunTV is actually denied their broadcasting license when up for renewal.
The multiple apologies ordered by a media self regulatory body, Broadcast Content Complaints Council (BCCC) ordered the media channels to tender apologies for airing said information carelessly without any exercise of caution and without first taking any steps to verify the authenticity of what they were broadcasting. One channel was forced to air apologies scrolling every 2 hours.
In addition to the extremely detailed testimony of many forensic video expert witnesses which is covered in detail on the rest of this website…
Here’s a pretty straightforward clip of a press conference where SunTV’s own COO Hansraj Saxena confessing the video was fake. He gives a very detailed public statement on open media flatly admitting that the video was morphed and part of a criminal blackmail scheme against Paramahamsa Nithyananda, which was part of a larger pattern of criminal extortion schemes leveraging SunTV’s media influence to extort and blackmail targets.

Later on the SunTV executive has said the same in a signed affidavit to the District Court of California thereby completely exposing the conspiracy against Swami Nithyananda. The attack on Swami Nithyananda is one in the line of many such attacks by atheists such as the Sun TV and people with other religious affiliations against Hindu Gurus. Last year the Sankaracharya of Kanchi, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal was acquitted, after a long trial for 9 years, by the High Court of Tamil Nadu of the charges of murder that were leveled on him by vested interests.
