DNA is the second most-read English broadsheet in Mumbai and the most populous city in the country with 506,000 readers in Mumbai alone. IRS also ranked DNA as sixth among the top ten English dailies in India. So the pivotal role and influence played by this journal in shaping public opinion is undeniable.
In the scenario, when a fake morphed video was created and released to defame His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda, the devotees constantly faught for justice at the court providing ample evidence to prove Swamiji as innocent, while the media continued to character assassinate His Divine Holiness and his spiritual mission by repeatedly publishing false, manipulated content.
Paramahamsa Nithyananda is a spiritual master who even teaches only after providing his followers with the proof that his teachings are rooted in the hindu scriptures, making it clear that all that he teaches is from a time-tested, fool-proof ancient tradition, and not out of his own vested interest.
On the contrast A blatant lie is published in the news paper with no substantial proof at all. Any susceptible reader would go by the words not understanding the selfish and cruel intention that lies behind the article.
