FOR RENT:ACTIVIST JOURNALIST SRI RAMA DIWANA – Story of fake unethical journalist Rama Divana

Fake journalist for rent activist Srirama Diwana

We reported earlier how Rama Diwana with no background in journalism became a laughing stock with his reports where he did not even know difference between warrants for arrest and warrants to be a witness in the court. We received several emails about Srirama Diwana after we published that report.

Now it turns out Rama Diwana himself was receipient of several arrest warrants (some say more than 60 warrants). Funny how he files reports for eveningers expressing concern over warrants being issued for police and doctors!!

Let us see Rama Diwana’s background and story of a person whose only claim to writing was writing “letters to editor” to all and sundry magazines/newspapers. Now this failed journalist Rama Diwana boasts of his access to naxals and how he can get any police official transferred from the Udupi district.

Rama Diwana is either office bearer or founder of the following letter head organisations we are aware of. Srirama Diwana has mastered the art of creating organisation overnight for any cause provided you meet his budget. Just look at the range of causes he is supposed to be fighting.

Blackmailer journalist Rama Diwana

  • Karnataka Komu Sowharda Vedike
  • Karnataka Manavata Vedike
  • Karnataka Janapara Vedike
  • Udupi Nagarika Vedike
  • Manava Hakkugala Okkoota
  • Kanaka Gopura Samrakshana Samithi
  • Alpasankyatara Okoota
  • Manava Dharma Janajagruthi Vedike
  • Terigedarara Vedike
  • Udupi Jillaspatre Vedike
  • Telephone booth operators association
  • Karnataka Vimochana Ranga (said to be a front organisation of Naxalites)
  • Pragatipara Patrakartara Vedike
  • Udupi Press Club
  • so on and on….

Phew, that is one long list isn’t it? Well wait there is more!

In addition to this, Srirama Diwana was arrested in Bangalore for physically assaulting the police. There Rama Divana bailed himself out leaving his supporters still inside the jail fending for themselves.

Well known for his sympathies towards Naxalites of Western Ghats, it is said that Rama Diwana was instrumental in setting up Naxal field trip and interview for a naxal sympathetic journalist from Bangalore in July 2004. Read the resultant glowing interview of naxals here (Kannada).

It is also said that fuelled by money from Gulf countries, Srirama Diwana was also responsible for almost causing bloodbath on the streets of Udupi when he actively instigated Hindu Muslim riots. District administration and police officials spent several months to calm down communal tension in Udupi created by Rama Diwana.

However Rama Diwana who lead the campaign in spreading false rumours and news had to eat humble pie when he was exposed to whole state in the Udupi Krisha Temple Kanaka Gopura episode. Diwana along with ETV’s Raviraj Valalambe fed false news to different community leaders about so-called demolition of Kanaka Gopura – but had sagani on his face when the new grand Kanaka Gopura was inaugurated and whole state laughed at Rama Divana’s fake activism. This incident caused significant tension among communities all across the state.

Medical and hospital community of Udupi are well aware of Srirama Diwana’s blackmailing activities as seen in Hitech Hospital, Kasturba Hospital episodes. Rama Divana has built a steady reputation as an ambulance chaser in Udupi and is known for his exortion and defamation tactics.

So with all this going on, isn’t it any wonder that Srirama Diwana has built a reputation as the most dependable and reliable blackmailing journalist cum activist of Udupi? Legitimate journalists of Udupi laugh behind Rama Divana’s back about his “for rent” activities.

Only the guru of Coastal Karnataka’s yellow and blackmailing journalism culture B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale actively supports Srirama Diwana. It is also interesting to note that Subashchandra Wagle of “Kannada Prabha” and Ganesh Prabhu of “The Hindu” are the only ones publishing press statements (including statements justifying naxalites killing police officials and innocent civilians) issued on daily basis by Srirama Diwana (with all different letterheads of course).

We know police officials of Coastal Karnataka read this blog – and we hope what we have published here is not new news for them about Rama Diwana. However, if they need further evidence we are willing to provide them.
