Udupi Press Club and fake corrupt journalists of Udupi stand exposed again.

On 24th September, a self-styled press photographer from Udupi without any ID made an illegal entry into Brahmavar Church School and took unauthorized photos inside. Authorities rightfully confiscated his camera, deleted the photos and returned the camera through police later.

Udupi fake journalists

So far the issue is identical to incident in Manipal Hospital (where two unauthorized people Umesh Marpally – a photographer known for taking photographs for blackmail and Sijith – equally notorious for harassing girls at Manipal End Point – claiming to be journalists entered emergency ward and took photos of naked patients without permission from doctors or patients. Medical security staff confiscated the camera and returned it after removing the film roll. Click here to read more) which we had covered extensively in this blog.

  • In both cases, people without any press identification made unauthorized entry and tried to take photographs when clearly instructed not to do so.
  • In both cases, camera was taken by concerned authorities and returned after removing photographs taken without permission in restricted area.

However, what is different though is the reaction of Udupi Press Club and its self-styled journalists to the incident. While in Brahmavar Church case, Udupi Press Club washed off its hand after giving a one line protest statement in Manipal incident response was completely different.

Humiliated at Brahmavar (for the right reason), there were no dharnas, no drama at police station, no fake police complaints, no black-badge protest, no letters to Chief Minister, Chief of police, State press club, begging all and sundry officials and politicians to make statements from these fake journalists. No press statement from letterhead organisation like Janapara Vedike., not a whimper from the likes of Nambiar of Kollur Temple scam fameland documents forgery expert Valalambe of ETV, or from rental activist journalist Srirama Diwana and his naxal sympathetic buddies Ganesh Prabhu of Hindu and Subhashchandra Wagle of Kannadaprabha. 

No banner headings in blackmailing evening newspapers of Mangalore Udupi, Karavali Ale or Vijaya Kirana. No cooked up video on Namma TV, Udupi Channel, Udaya TV.  No “breaking news” one sided report in internet portals like daijiworld.com or mangalorean.com. Nothing, nada.

Proves only one thing – Media in Udupi was used by anti-social criminal elements, people with hidden agenda, political opponents to make a statement in Manipal incident. It is no secret that after change of power in state and district, corrupt journalists of Udupi used to accepting “covers” and bottles are facing a dry season.

Just in case you have forgotten, here are some photos from Manipal incident of fake corrupt shameless journalists of Udupi protesting like street thugs in Manipal and Udupi.

Corrupt journalists led by Nambiar with blackbadges

 In this photo you can see journalists of Udupi led by Dinesh Kini, Nambiar making a political statement by wearing black badge. Where are the black badges now after Brahmavar incident? Or have all Udupi cloth-shops run out of black cloth suddenly? Or is blackbadge to be used only when journalists of Udupi want to blackmail for money or to make a political statement?

 Udupi journalists or street thugs?

In this photo you can see journalists blackmailing police to accept false complaint. In just one photo you can see creme de la creme of corrupt journalists – one accused of swindling temple of crores, two of them eyewitness (and conspirators?) to rowdy Hitendra Prasad’s murder. But hey, all of them are “JOURNALISTS”! Salute!

This conclusively proves that Udupi Press Club and corrupt journalists of Udupi make a scene only when it suits them and when the price is right. In Manipal incident the reaction was clearly politically motivated. They wanted to tarnish professional reputation of medical staff and the hospital. And moreover thought they can force some money out! When that did not work they went all out publishing false onesided reports.

In Manipal they blackmailed and forced police to accept false complaint against doctors while in Brahmavar like puppy dogs they begged police to get the camera phone back from Church authorities!

Udupi Press Club - silent when price is right?

However we won’t be surprised if Udupi Press Club after reading this will come up with some protest march just to show that they are impartial (and shameless) You read it here first!

Brahmavar Church incident yet again underlines spread of unethical journalism by corrupt anti-social elements in Udupi. But also raises a question – can anyone claim to be a journalist and take unauthorized photos in private areas the name of freedom of press? First it was inside hospital emergency room and now inside a religious place like church. Where next?

    Hey nice blog! My uncle is in Karnataka state press association. I am forwarding this link to him. I wonder how much funding state gives to these thugs posing as journalists.

  2. B.V.Pai Says:

    What else you can expect from these people who were silent when their “fellow journalist” Hitendra Prasad was brutally murdered in Manipal? They are all the same.

    Thanks for continuing to expose corrupt unethical journalists. Good to see a post. I was wondering what happenned to the blog as there were no posts.

  4. James Nandalike Says:

    Church authorities did the right thing. These so called journalists were taking the photos without authorized permission of respectful church members. I request all people to be alert on these fake journalists who will take photos and make use of them for anti-social and to disturb communal harmony of peaceful udupi district.

  5. JP Says:

    We need to wait and see whether udupi press club will protest with black badges agianst Minister Oscar Fernandes. But I’m sure they will not and there is no reason. But you never know, about these press folks who will go to any extent to disturb peaceful community of udupi

  6. Pastor U W Franklin Says:

    Chrisitian leaders, with their contacts should expose the high handed, criminal activities of Udupi Journalists. In the Brahmavar episode, it is notable that the Journalists were protesting along with Communal forces.
    It is time our community boycott these criminals in the guise of journalists.

  7. Ganesh Patil Says:

    Attention all Journalists of Udupi

    Patil Textiles, Parkala
    Gajanan Cloth Store, Tenkapet (opp Alevoor Kinis Tajmahal Hotel)
    Nutan Silks, Udupi

  8. Madan Says:

    My friends in Brahmavar indicate that high handed attitude of journalists in Brahmavar has now been escalted to central government level (Oscaranna, Margaret Alva, Sonia) and also to international christian organisations. This despite boast of journalists that Oscaranna is their godfather. We shall see what happens now.

    Will be fun to watch hypocrisy of Udupi journalists unveiled at national level.
