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.
DNA plays safe by not owning up for any abusive or slippery statements on Paramahamsa Nithyananda, but successfully makes the intended false imprint on the minds of the readers. Millions of readers influenced by these false-impact creating articles, miss out on Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s teachings that could turn lives.
