RAVI BELAGERE’S OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS OF B.V.SEETHARAM IN “HAI BENGALOOR”:Compares BVSee to Taliban, recommends a wig to hide BVSee’s half bald (naked) head / “ಹಾಯ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರ್”ನಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿವಿಸೀಗೆ “ಅಂಡೆ ಪಿರ್ಕಿ ತಾಲಿಬಾನ್” ಬಿರುದು!

Karavali Ale Editor B.V.Seetharam compared to Taliban in popular magazine “Hai Bengaloor”

Ravi Belagere once again proves why he is present day Karnataka’s favourite writer.

In a very objective analysis of Karavali Ale’s B.V.Seetharam’s arrest in this week’s “Hai Belgaloor”weekly, Ravi Belagere compares B.V.Seetharam’s hatred of Jains to intolerance of Taliban who destroyed Buddist statues in Bamiyan.

Since blog posts about B.V.Seetharam’s harassment of Jain Muni Tarun Sagar and Jain community are attracting large number of Jains around the world here is a brief note on Ravi Belagere to the benefit of non-Kannadiga readers of this blog –  Ravi Belagere [link to Wikipedia entry on Belagere] is the editor of popular Kannada weekly “Hai Bengaloor” and is famous for his hard hitting columns. He is also a writer, novelist, actor and has his own TV shows, FM broadcast etc.

Belagere compares B.V.Seetharam to Taliban and says if one goes by B.V.Seetharam’s logic, B.V.See’s own half bald (naked) head should be covered by a wig!

Ravi Belagere writes on B.V.Seetharam in “Hai Bengaloor” - compares BVSee to Taliban

Ravi Belagere asks “If one agrees with B.V.Seetharam’s point of view on nudity in Jainism, then one has to destroy Gomateswara (Bahubali) statues, put blouse on Belur Haledidu’s dancer statues (Shilaabalikas), provide a wig to B.V.Seetharam’s naked bald head”

[Above is the rough translation of article in Kannada to the benefit of non-Kannadiga readers of this blog. We are seeing big increase in number of readers of this blog – readers from all over the world since word has spread in the Jain community that their guru Muni Tarun Sagar was harassed in Mangalore by BVSeetharam and other leftist militant organisations]

In the article Ravi Belagere also rejects B.V.Seetharam’s objections on nudity in Jainism point by point – in his own unique style – and in the process exposes B.V.Seetharam’s pervert logic.

Belagere also exposes B.V.Seetharam’s claim that he is not an Editor (thus can’t be arrested for what is published in “Karavali Ale”) – something we have also covered in this blog earlier in this post [Also see – B.V.Seetharam trying to avoid jail sentence by claiming he is not the editor – misguides state, national, International organisations]

All in all we applaud Ravi Belagere for writing boldly on a fellow journalist in an open fashion and also pointing out B.V.Seetharam’s weakness and destroying BVSee’s perverted logic on Jains. Belagere also has not viewed B.V.Seetharam’s arrest as curb on “Freedom of Press” as being portrayed by fake journalist organisations like Udupi Press Club (ಇಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿ: “ಕ್ರಿಮಿನಲ್ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಬೆಂಬಲಿಸಿ ಪತ್ರಿಕೋದ್ಯಮದ ಚಟ್ಟ ಕಟ್ಟಿದ ಉಡುಪಿಯ ಢೋಂಗೀ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರು“)   and likes of Balakrishna Kakatkar.

B.V.SEETHARAM CONTINUES TO CLAIM HE IS NOT THE EDITOR,PRINTER OR PUBLISHER:Misguides Editors Guild of India and other National, International organisations

March 22, 2007

B.V.Seetharam tries to get into technilaties to avoid jail termB.V.Seetharam – head of blackmail media conglomerate, recently arrested after blackmailing Jain community in Mangalore – continues to mislead state, national, international media organisations.

In his latest letter to Editors Guild of India, B.V.Seetharam claims that he is neither Editor, Printer or Publisher of Karavali Ale Group. (as usual The Hindu was the only newspaper to publish his letter)

Of course, that immediately begs a question – if he is not the Editor, why is he even writing to Editors Guild of India? And why should Editors Guild of India even help B.V.Seetharam if he is not the Editor?

Let us keep that aside for a moment and focus on this new ploy by B.V.Seetharam to not take any responsibilities for his action. While this drama by B.V.Seetharam is not any surprise for regular readers of this blog and citizens of Mangalore, we are publishing this primarily to inform visitors of this blog.

From B.V.Seetharam’s letter:

He said he and his wife were arrested by the police though neither of them was the editor, printer or publisher of the newspapers concerned.

  • By claiming he is not the Editor, is B.V.Seetharam indirectly saying “it is OK to arrest the Editor”
  • So next question is, is he admitting that articles published in Karavali Ale indeed were “arrest worthy” of Editor?
  • If so, then we really need to pity some bakra who is now being readied to be sent to jail in lieu of B.V.Seetharam! This is how a typical underworld don works – admit mistake, accept judicial verdict – but then send some random person to jail – by providing money to that person for the “jail sit in”

One more gem from the letter:

Mr. Seetaram said two of his Kannada publications had published two articles relating to Jain monks on the theme “civility versus nudity.” They were intended to trigger a debate, he argued.

Ummmm….nice try. Publish an inflammatory article and then claim “it is to trigger a debate”. Nice explanation Mr.Seetharam. How about being brave and claiming “I asked Jain community for money. They did not oblige. So I started writing nasty things about Jain guru and community” – at least be honest Mr.Seetharam!

Karavali Ale reporters all over Coastal Karnataka are known for harassing businessmen, industries, educational institutes, politicians – especially women in politics, government officials, teachers etc and collect lakhs of rupees every week.

As we have repeatedly published in this blog, B.V.Seetharam has not hesitated to publish false stories pouring fuel into communal riots. So the sudden turnaround claiming “he just wanted a debate” is nothing but sheer cowardice on part of B.V.Seetharam to wriggle out of the mess he is currently in – what with two different courts in two different districts providing him only conditional bail.

B.V.Seetharam and his lawyers may device all kind of “technicalities” to avoid prison term – but one day law will ultimately catch up with B.V.Seetharam.

ಏನೇ ಇರಲಿ, ತಾನೇ ತೋಡಿದ ಗುಂಡಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿದ್ದು ಈಗ ತನ್ನ ಚರ್ಮ ಉಳಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಯಾವುದೋ ಟೆಕ್ನಿಕಾಲಿಟಿ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು (ತಾನು “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ನಲ್ಲನೆಂದು ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡು)  ಸ್ವತಃ ತನ್ನ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯ “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ನನ್ನೇ ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ದಬ್ಬಲು ಸಿದ್ದನಾಗಿರುವ ಬಿವಿಸೀಯ ಕರುಣಾಜನಕ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿಗೆ ಜನರು ಮರುಕ ಪಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

 Criminal journalists like Balakrishna Kakatkar, Environmental pimps like Premananda Kalmadi, KDF Communal Riot sponsors protest B.V.Seetharam’s arrest in Udupi

ಫೊಟೋ: ದಾಯ್ಜಿವರ್ಲ್ಡ್

After Udupi Press Club’s comedy act of protest against the arrest of criminal blackmailer journalist B.V.Seetharam, now it is the turn of the likes of professional blackmailers in the guise of journalists – Srirama Diwana, Dinakara Bengre, Rupesh Kalmady (yes, the same Rupesh Kalmady accused of murdering Bailakere Sheena / harassing school girls in Malpe is now  office bearer of Rama Diwana’s press association!) to organise yet another meeting to support sleazy journalist B.V.Seetharam who was arrested for blackmailing Jain community after his demand for lakhs of rupees was not met.

And what star studded cast they presented on stage! It is a pity that despite getting such stars as drunkard blackmailer wife beater Balakrishna Kakatkar, Vitala Hegde organisers could not even muster to get 50 people in the audience. Intelligent people of Udupi yet again showed their disinterest in the whole affair – after-all who in the right mind would support a sleazy journalist like B.V.Seetharam who has turned journalism into a blackmailing industry?

However that did not prevent the “journalists” (after-all they organised it?) from publishing big multi-column reports in their newspapers about this meeting as if it was a huge protest! One has to pity the editors sitting remotely who publish articles sent from their field reporters.

Even a portal like Daijiworld.com has joined this trend – giving extensive coverage to a pithy protest and publishing its reporters personal opinion as that of general public.  Read how Daijiworld’s reporter / sub-editor Gladson Ignatius D’Almeida tries to portray whole event as if there is some mass protest against the arrest of B.V.Seetharam. We have received some new material on Daijiworld and Gladson Ignatius D’Almeida – so watch this space as we dig and publish about the scam perpetuated on unsuspecting NRIs by Daijiworld.com

Visibly drunk Kakatkar addresses a rented crowd

Balakrishna Kakatkar of Udaya TV – a person against whom there are bunch of pending criminal cases and FIRs. A drunkard who was kicked out of the planes in New Delhi Airport. A chronic wife beater and abuser who ultimately forced his wife to commit suicide! And this person comes all the way to Udupi to give lecture about “freedom of press”! And we are supposed to hear from this drunkard criminal Balakrishna Kakatkar on ethics? Kakatkar who built an empire based blackmailing journalism using his Udaya TV program is a moral authority?

Then there was Kalkulli Vittala Hegde – a well known supporter of Naxal terrorism in Naxal ghats. Obviously invited by Srirama Diwana – a blackmail journalist who also considers himself a “for rent protester” for any cause – also a well known Naxal supporter who enabled Gowri Lankesh to visit Naxal hideouts in Naxal ghats – and office bearer in more than dozen organisations including Karnataka Forum for Dignity which was listed as one of the main organisations responsible for communal riots in Mangalore and Udupi and according to intelligence sources is funded by dreaded ISI of Pakistan.

Rest of the cast was the usual bunch of professional protesters – likes of Premananda Kalmadi who has earned lakhs of rupees in the name of “saving the environment” and gets grant from NGOs in Netherlands, UK etc. P.B.Dsa of Mangalore, Karnataka Forum for Dignity office bearers aka communal riot sponsors. It was certainly an interesting confluence of anti-social, criminals, fake environmentalists pervert thinkers on a single platform!

B.V.SEETHARAM RELEASED ON BAIL – PROMPTLY GOES UNDERGROUND LIKE SCAMSTERS/ROWDIES? MEANWHILE BVSEE’S WIFE AKA “HAFTA COLLECTOR” COMPLAINS TO HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION

March 14, 2007

 Blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam released on bail

After creating communal tension for years and finally arrested for writing derogatory inflammatory articles against Jain community in “Karavali Ale” and other newspapers, B.V.Seetharam was released on conditional bail. It can be recalled how BVSeetharam and his wife harassed the wealthy Jain community in Mangalore after BVSee’s demand for money from Jain community to not publish derogatory articles was turned down – after which BVSee launched a slander campaign against Jain community and well known Jain guru Tarun Sagar.

Promptly, a move that is usually practiced by two bit rowdies and gangsters B.V.Seetharam has gone underground immediately after the release. If the whole issue was indeed issue of “Freedom of Press” as being portrayed by B.V.See’s followers – one has to wonder – why has B.V.Seetharam gone underground after the release?

Is this a plan to launch some sort of “underground” journalism now wherein by hiding out of public and law enforcement authorities / judiciary B.V.Seetharam will indulge in blackmail sitting at Dubai or some big city and remotely control his sleazy blackmail media “Karavali Ale” empire? Like how Dawood controls Mumbai sitting somewhere in Dubai or Karachi?

****

B.V.Seetharam’s wife complains to National Human Rights Commission – what about human rights of Karavali Ale blackmail victims?

Meanwhile in a hilarious move, Rohini S – wife of B.V.Seetharam – has complained to National Human Rights Commission. In the complaint Rohini says she is just an innocent housewife.

But documentary evidence available with us shows a different Rohini.

While we have repeatedly exposed B.V.Seetharam earlier in this blog, we do have substantial documentary evidence (including recorded phone calls) where Rohini is involved in collecting money akin to “hafta” by calling business, professionals, educational institutions, vehicle dealers, petrol pump owners, restaurant owners for advertisements and blackmailing them if they don’t pay up.

National Human Rights Commission must take note of these fake allegations by B.V.Seetharam and Rohini of “Karavali Ale” group. Rohini has stood behind her husband B.V.Seetharam’s use of journalism as a tool for blackmail and is in fact known in Mangalore ad agencies and big business as “Hafta lady”

On a related note we are in the process of converting recorded phone calls from Rohini demanding money from business to digital media – and will be uploading them shortly. In this particular clip Rohini demands that business provide advertisement to be published in Karavali Ale. In another clip Rohini is indirectly threatening to publish articles against the dealer if they don’t give advertisement in Karavali Ale group of sleazy newspapers.

WHY ARREST OF B.V.SEETHARAM IS NOT AN ISSUE OF FREEDOM OF PRESS – BUT A CASE OF BLACKMAIL ATTEMPT ON WEALTHY JAIN COMMUNITY GONE WRONG

March 10, 2007

B.V.Seetharam arrested again by police for attacking Jain community and Muni Tarun Sagar in his newspaper Karavali Ale

B.V.Seetharam, Editor of “Karavali Ale” was arrested by Sagar police (Shimoga District) for hurting Jain community by continuously publishing derogative columns on Jains and Jain Muni Tarun Sagar and creating a hostile environment for Jains in the region. Earlier Mangalore police had arrested B.V.Seetharam on the same charges and he was released on a conditional bail only to be arrested by Sagar police again.

***
We have received many emails on “Karavali Ale” B.V.Seetharam’s arrest – particularly from members of Jain community from other parts of India and even US – wondering what exactly is going on in Mangalore and why their (tiny) community in Mangalore and well  respected Jain Muni Tarun Sagar is target of sleazy journalism by “Karavali Ale” and its Editor B.V.Seetharam.

This post attempts to address that question and also analyse attempts by section of media led by “The Hindu” to portray arrest of B.V.Seetharam as “curb on freedom of press”  

First, journalists of Mangalore or district have not even provided a one sentence condemnation of Karavali Ale Editor.  Only protests are by journalists hundreds of kilometers away in districts like Gulbarga etc who have no idea who Seetharam is and what are the charges against him! Silence of local media against the arrest explains everything – even fellow journalists no longer consider B.V.Seetharam as a “journalist” – rather he is treated on par with criminals and a blackmailer who is finally behind the bars for his years of sleazy journalism.

Second, let us see the background of who is actually supporting B.V.Seetharam – this motley group is led by the likes of P.B.D’sa – known mostly for his support of murderers and securing bail for them, well known communal riot sponsors like U.T.Khader of Ullal (who is accused of actively participating in riots and looting in 2006 Mangalore communal riots and against whom FIR was filed) assorted bunch of leftists – from DYFI to CPI(M), violent organisations accused of communal riots like Karnataka Forum for Dignity (central intelligence sources have repeatedly mentioned this organisation as one of the most dangerous ISI supported organisations in Coastal Karnataka), Komusouharda Vedike etc

It is said that a man is judged from the company he keeps. Looking at those supporting B.V.Seetharam – it is evident that we are looking at who-is-who of “riot industry” and “professional full-time protesters” in Mangalore and Coastal Karnataka. A small group but a vocal group.

On question “Why Jain community is target of B.V.Seetharam’s attack” – answer is simple. Being a tiny minority (with dwindling population) Jains were an easy target of Karavali Ale. Plus, they are wealthy – so they were a natural target of sleazy journalism by B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale. As we reported earlier, B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale demanded money from Jain community when it was announced that Jain Muni Tarun Sagar is visiting Mangalore. When that demand was turned down, Seetharam resorted to daily bashing of Jains and Muni Tarun Sagar in his newspaper as well as his column called “Suttha Muttha” which ultimately resulted in jailing of Seetharam in Mangalore (and now in town of Sagar near Shimoga)

In short – a sleazy blackmail journalism attempt by Karavali Ale B.V.Seetharam went horribly wrong for him and he has now been arrested by police of two different districts in Karnataka for his nasty writings against a non-violent Muni Tarun Sagar and a model minority like Jains.

****

WATCHDOG vs STREETDOG

Bangalore dogs tasted road side meat and became violent. BVSee became emboldened by riches generated by sleazy blackmail journalism

As one of the readers wrote “Media is supposed to be watchdog in a democratic setup. But in Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam’s case – he became a mad dog like dogs of Bangalore street dogs. While dogs became violent and started hunting children in Bangalore due to roadside meat stalls and leftovers, B.V.Seetharam became emboldened over the years when his blackmailing sleazy journalism yielded financial riches of unimagined magnitude causing him to lose sense of reality and focus only on sleazy blackmail using his newspaper”

To portray this simple fact as some sort of curb on freedom of press is not only an insult to genuine journalists / media but also an insult to Indian Constitution which provides every citizen freedom to practice religion of his or her choice.

In Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam’s case, his days of smear campaign against Jain community and Muni Tarun Sagar was an attempt at creating hostile environment for this tiny community and police of Mangalore should be commended for taking quick action on the complaint and preventing further communal problems.

Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam are experts in creating communal riots as seen during attack on church in Kodikal and communal riots in Mangalore last year.

Readers of this blog are aware how Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam constributed to last year’s communal riots in Mangalore (read here to read how B.V.Seetharam was accused of accepting 5 Lakh rupees to publish false inflammatory stories) During the riots, situation would be calm in the morning and early afternoon. The moment Karavali Ale newspapers hit the stands, mobs angered by false inflammatory reports in Ale would attack shops and people.

So columns of Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam are not something that can be brushed under the pretext of “freedom of press” – they cater to disturbed section of the society (unemployed, semi-literates etc) resulting in immediate reaction – i.e. they have the power to create serious communal problems as evident from above links. Social problems created by Karavali Ale and BVSee are real in Coastal Karnataka – and those shouting about “freedom of press” sitting in their air conditioned offices at Bangalore and Chennai offices better do a field trip to Mangalore to see for themselves the reach and impact of Karavali Ale and its editor’s sleazy hate filled journalism.

B.V.SEETHARAM:KARAVALI ALE EDITOR?DIRECTOR?PEON?BVSee trying to send innocent bakras to prison using lame technicalities

March 7, 2007

Who exactly B.V.Seetharam in Karavali Ale? Peon? Editor? Director?vyavastapaka.gif

 ಬಿವಿಸೀಯ “ತಾನೊಬ್ಬನ್ನೇ ಜಾಣ”ವೆಂಬ ವಕ್ರ ಬುದ್ಧಿಗೆ ಇಲ್ಲಿದೆ ತಾಜಾ ಉದಾಹರಣೆ.

ಇದುವರೆಗೆ ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆಯ “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ಎಂದೇ ಕರೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಈಗ “ತಾನು ವ್ಯವಸ್ಠಾಪಕ ಮಾತ್ರ” ಎಂದು ಸಡನ್ನಾಗಿ ಪ್ಲೇಟ್ ಬದಲಿಸಿರುವುದು ಪ್ರಜ್ಹಾವಂತರು ಗಮನಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.  ಪಿಬಿಡೇಸಾನಂತಹ ಕ್ರಿಮಿಗಳು, “ದಿ ಹಿಂದೂ”ನಂತಹ ಪ್ರತಿಷ್ಟಿತ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳು ಇದೇ ಲೈನನ್ನು ಬಡಬಡಬಡಿಸಿತ್ತಿರುವುದು ನಗೆಪಾಟೀಲಿನ ಸಂಗತಿಯಲ್ಲದೆ ಮತ್ತೇನು?

ಜನರ ಜ್ನಾಪಕ ಶಕ್ತಿ ಕಮ್ಮಿಯೆಂದು ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಬಳಗ ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಂಡಂತಿದೆ.ಆದರೆ ಈಗಿನ ಇಂಟರ್ನೆಟ್ ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ದಾಖಲೆಗಳು ಬಹಳ ಕಾಲ ಉಳಿಯುತ್ತವೆ. “ದಿ ಹಿಂದೂ” ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಸಂಚಿಕೆಗಳನ್ನು, “daijiworld.com” “mangalorean.com” ವೆಬ್ ಸೈಟ್ ನೋಡಿದರೆ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಅಂದರೆ ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆಯ “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ನೆಂದೇ ಇದೆ.

ತನ್ನ ಆಫೀಸಿನ ಮೇಲೆ ಬಾಡಿಗೆ ಗೂಂಡಾಗಳಿಂದ ಧಾಳಿ ಮಾಡಿಸಿ ಪುಡಿ ಮಾಡಿಸಿದಾಗ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ದಾಖಲೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ನೆಂದೇ ಸಹಿ ಹಾಕಿದ ಬಿವಿಸೀ, ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ಕೌನ್ಸಿಲ್ ದಾಖಲೆಗಳಿಗೆ “ಸಂಪಾದಕ”ನಾಗಿರುವ ಬಿವಿಸೀ, ಈಗ “ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥಾಪಕ”ನೆಂದು ಫೊಸು ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಯಾರೋ ಬಡಪಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ಕಳುಸಲು ಯತ್ನಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ನಿಜಕ್ಕೂ ಶೋಚನೀಯ.

ಇದು ತನ್ನ ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಯನ್ನು ಜಾರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಯಾರೋ ಪಾಪದ ಬಕ್ರನನ್ನು ಸಂಪಾದಕನೆಂದು ಹೆಸರಿಸಿ ಆ ಬಡಪಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ಕಳಿಸಿ ತಾನು ಹೊರಬಂದು ಯಥಾಪ್ರಕಾರ ಬ್ಲಾಕ್ ಮೇಲ್ ದಂಧೆಯನ್ನು ಮುಂದುವರೆಸಲು ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಮತ್ತು ಗ್ಯಾಂಗಿನ ಪ್ಲಾನ್.

ಈ ರಂಗೋಲಿ ಅಡಿ ತೂರುವ ಯತ್ನದಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿವಿಸೀ ಯಶಸ್ವಿಯಾದರೂ ಆಶ್ಚರ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ.

Our sources indicatethat B.V.Seetharam is now trying to wriggle out of the jail using a lame technicality.

This is same technique used by underworld in Mumbai and Bangalore for years – in short, commit a crime and then send some bakra to prison. Locally, we have seen drivers of bus / ore trucks use the same technique to avoid prison – send some dummy person to prison and avoid imprisonment.

Technique is simple: Claim that he is not the editor of “Karavali Ale” so police have no reasons to arrest him. This way B.V.Seetharam will label some layman bakra as “Editor” and won’t hesitate to send him to prison in lieu of him.  BVSee can then come out of jail and continue his blackmailing tactics and sleazy journalism – all in the name of “freedom of press”
