What gives Deccan Chronicle the authority to so grossly mislead the people thereby overstepping every single ethic of journalism? Who is behind such a blatantly abusive title? It is a known fact that in the complaint filed against Paramahamsa Nithyananda, there is not even the word ‘rape’ mentioned, nor a single victim named. Deccan Chronicle grossly misuses its outreach to people. The absurdity of the complaint was that it was accepted without a victim. If there was a supposed “sex racket” in the ashram, shouldn’t there be at least one victim immediately coming forward? Why would the CID keep advertising on television and newspaper asking for a victim, and even promising travel fare for those who came forward!
Through this title, it is clear that Deccan Chronicle is on a specific agenda of running a character assassination campaign against Paramahamsa Nithyananda, manipulating the minds of lakhs of vulnerable people who read their newspaper. On another note, its attack on Paramahamsa Nithyananda is completely dehumanizing with no regard for even fundamental human right.
