Karavali Ale B.V.Seetharam tries to misuse Rajdeep Sardesai’s name;gets a warning from Rajdeep Desai

Rajdeep Sardesai deserves kudos for stopping misuse of his name by blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

Rajdeep Sardesai deserves kudos for stopping misuse of his name by blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

Coastal Karnataka’s blackmail journalist B.V.Seetaram (already arrested multiple times for harming communal harmony and ignoring court warrant/summons) was in Delhi begging for Congress ticket.

B.V.Seetharam visited Editors Guild of India President Rajdeep Sardesai’s residence unannounced on a weekend asking for help with Congress ticket. Furious Rajdeep Sardesai is said to have kicked B.V.Seetharam out of his house with a warning that he will be banished from Editors Guild of India membership.

Inspite of this humiliating experience,  after returning to Mangalore B.V.Seetharam boasted in his Editorial Columns that he met Rajdeep Sardesai and that Sardesai is his close friend. It is well known in Karnataka that B.V.Seetharam tries to misuse name of institutions such as Press Council of India (where he is listed as defaulter for not paying fees), Editors Guild of India to bring credibility to his blackmail journalism industry and also get Government advertisements.

B.V.Seetharam perhaps thought his false boasts and namedropping won’t reach faraway Delhi. Unfortunately for him, in this era of Internet news travels fast. B.V.Seetharam is already notorious in Delhi for his blackmail journalism and when Sardesai came to know about B.V.See misusing his name he again called B.V.See on phone and said to have severely admonished him again.

Knowing B.V.Seetharam’s past history and state of mind, he probably considers this bashing from Rajdeep as a badge of honour!

Press Council of India Defaulter since 2005 – B.V.Seetharam now complains to PCI about this blog – claims “misuse of Internet” LOL

February 12, 2009

B.V.SEETHARAM – TOPS DEFAULTER LIST ON PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA WEBSITE. Is B.V.Seetharam misusing membership of PCI to further his blackmail activities?

B V Seetharam defaults of PCI for years but still complains to PCI

B V Seetharam is prominently displayed as "defaulter" on Press Council of India website since year 2005!

Perhaps even best of the comedy writers can’t script this or is this an indication how delusional a blackmail journalist becomes when he is exposed.

We are now in possession of an email sent by B.V.Seetharam to Press Council of India where he demands ban on this website. Comedy because for someone claiming to be champion of free speech and media,  B.V.Seetharam surely does not believe in practicising what he preaches.

B.V.Seetharam of Chitra Publications Mangalore – a notorious blackmail journalist fresh out of jail in a blackmail incident – publishes “Karavali Ale”,”Sanje Ale”, “Kannada Janantaranga”, “Canara Times”, disturbing communal harmony and peace in Coastal Karnataka, has been prominently displayed as “Defaulter” on Press Council of India website since year 2005 owing thousands of rupees to Press Council of India.

Even other journalists including Karnataka’s most popular journalist Ravi Belagere  dissociate themselves from B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

And in an unprecedented protest in Mangalore, thousands including women and children came out openly to protest blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam recently.

But without any shame B.V.Seetharam and Karavali use the fact that they are member of Press Council of India to boast how this rag is a “genuine” newspaper and get advertisements from government institutions to subsidize their blackmail journalism.

We had covered it in our earlier blog post long time ago on this blog (read “Karavali Ale tops Press Council of India Default List”) and one can even now visit Press Council of India website to verify it (http://presscouncil.nic.in/defaulters.htm)

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

Press Council of India defaulter B.V.Seetharam complains to PCI about the blog and sees “misuse of Internet” for exposing his lies out in open

Since when Blogs come under the purview of Press Council of India? What jurisdiction does PCI have on websites which can be hosted in any country in the world?

One has to pity B.V.Seetharam for not knowing even basics of journalism or blogging!

Irony of B.V.Seetharam demanding muzzling of blogs

Even if we discount this feudal journalist’s state of mind after enjoying his stay in variety of Karnataka jails (ordered by various Karnataka Courts), B.V.Seetharam who boasts about “Freedom of Press”, “Freedom of Media” is now complaining about a medium of free speech like this blog. Very ironic indeed.

For years this blog has exposed B.V.Seetharam and his blackmail journalism to whole world with documentation. We even carried interview of Bhojaraja Shetty, a blackmail victim of B.V.Seetharam where BVSeetharam demanded 1 Lakh Rupees to not publish a concocted story. That post remains one of the highest viewed post on this blog with hundreds of people visiting it daily to know more about B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism.

B.V.Seetharam’s double talk

How can someone like B.V.Seetharam who claims immunity from courts, police, his victims under “Freedom of Press” umbrella, now complain about a blog which is exposing his misdeeds?

As usual B.V.Seetharam stands exposed in front of the whole world.

*****

Are you a victim of B.V.Seetharam and his band of blackmailers claiming to be “reporters”, “journalists”? Are you sick and tired of inaction of PCI in managing blackmail journalists? Are you tired of complaining to Press Council of India? Share your stories or send them over to udupipressvictim@gmail.com for publication – your identity will be kept confidential if you so desire.

Help the country by exposing this blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and also campaign for reforming PCI which many claim is totally ineffective in dealing with blackmailers like B.V.Seetharam.

MANGALORE : Unprecedented protest against blackmail journalism of Karavali Ale / B.V.Seetharam

January 14, 2009

“ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆ”, ಬಿವಿಸೀ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಭಾರೀ ಪ್ರತಿಭಟನೆ

Frustrated public protest against blackmail journalism of B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale in Mangalore

Mangalore and Coastal Karantaka are not new to protests. But this protest was different – in an unprecedented protest, people were protesting against a “newspaper” Karavali Ale and its “Editor-in-Chief” B.V.Seetharam.

Perhaps for the first time in the history of Coastal Karnataka  and Mangalore, several hundred people including many women and children came out in street to protest blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and his newspaper “Karavali Ale”.

While few long distance patriots sitting out in places like Houston and some in media are trying hard to protect (like D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN who falsely attirbuted reason of arrest to RSS) their fellow media man B.V.Seetharam without knowing facts of the case, it is clear that public in Coastal Karnataka have had enough with B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

People protesting against Karavali Ale first conducted a silence march and then shouted slogans against blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam and “Karavali Ale”.

****

“KARAVALI ALE” and B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail victims include people of all religions

Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

JAN 13 2009:Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

One has to note that people cutting across religious lines have been victims of Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam – so this is a truly secular public outrage in a region sharply divided along communal lines.

***

Even a magazine like “FRONTLINE” acknowledges this in article about B.V.Seetharam in its latest issue.

Excerpts:

Karavali Ale was targeted by the public because it had been publishing articles against prominent Hindu religious leaders as well as Christians and Muslims for the past four to five years. He termed the attacks against the distribution network of the newspaper a ‘‘public revolt’’.

“The circulation of the newspaper fell by more than 50 per cent in December. If Seetaram’s allegations are correct, why haven’t any of the other local newspaper establishments stood by him?”

This is not the first time that the newspaper has ruffled feathers. In several of its reports, there is only a thin line between evidence-based journalistic critique and rhetoric that can be interpreted as being defamatory. Its style is a no-holds-barred kind, and it does not hesitate to make personal attacks.

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

As usual we can expect total blackout of this protest by Main Stream Media while a protest by few (less than a dozen) leftist buddies of Seetharam can get National Coverage (see CNN-IBN coverage and other coverage of a protest againdt BVSee’s arrest in Bangalore). As expected media faternity is very close knit when it comes to saving skin of one of their own.

Rights of common people somehow is less important than a blackmailer like B.V.Seetharam who blatantly ignored court summons like a two bit common criminal? and was arrested on a non-bailable warrant issued by a court?

Is suffering Bhojaraja Shetty and family is going through because of reckless blackmail journalism by B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale is somehow less important? B.V.Seetharam is now faking illness (like common criminals do) is enjoying five star luxury in hospitals – paid and taken care of by us tax payers. Something to think about….

B.V.Seetaram of Karavali Ale Arrested in Udupi on non-bailable warrant issued by court

B.V.Seetharam who runs a sprawling blackmail journalism empire in Coastal Karnataka is behind bars, again. This time on a non-bailable warrant issued by Hon’be Court on a defamation case.

Jail time is not new for B.V.Seetaram who has been earlier accused of fostering riots between Hindus, Muslims and Christians in Coastal Karnataka by publishing unsubstantiated rumours as news. He was arrested last year for inciting hate against Jains. Seetaram’s emphire built on blackmailing innocents with threat of publishing false news. Karavali Ale reporters are known all over Coastal Karnataka for their blackmailing tactics.

Some facts on the most recent case and relevant time line:

DEC 2007 – B.V.Seetaram calls Bhoja Shetty of Shirva, Udupi threatening to publish an article alleging rape by Bhoja Shetty. Bhoja Shetty refuses to give any money to B.V.Seetharam

Dec 17, 2007 – Karavali Ale publishes a story alleging Bhojaraj Shetty committed rape and is hiding in Shabarimale (Kerala)

Early 2008 – Bhojaraja Shetty goes to court alleging harassment and defamation by the above report. Court considers the case after evaluating the false report and issues summons to B.V.Seetaram. No response from B.V.Seetaram to repeated summons by the court.

Dec 12, 2008 – Court issues non bailable warrant against B.V.Seetaram. Seetaram ignores it again.

Jan 4, 2009 – B.V.Seetaram arrested in Udupi District per court order.

These are the facts and police are only implementing court order.

*****

B.V.SEETHARAM IS A REPEAT OFFENDER

Sleazy journalist B V Seetharam is a habitual offender - with such an impressive arrest history is it surprising police handcuffed him?

Sleazy journalist B V Seetharam is a habitual offender - with such an impressive arrest history is it surprising police handcuffed him?

B.V.Seetaram is a repeat offender who has made multiple trips to jails and faces dozens of court cases across Karnataka State due to blackmail journalism he practices. Just Google B.V.Seetaram Karavali Ale Blackmail and you can see his exploits. (Click here on his earlier arrest where even Karnataka State High Court rejected his bail application) Everyone know repeat offenders are handcuffed – so why special treatment to repeat offender like B.V.Seetaram? Why are some in media protesting this? Is Media above rule of law in Karnataka?

*****

B.V.SEETARAM planned escape from Udupi Court and Hospital premises?

One of the rumours floating around Udupi is B.V.Seetaram had planned for an elaborate drama by asking his underworld buddies to “kidnap” or “attack” him while in Udupi Court and Hospital premises. In above photos one can see some of the notorious rowdy sheeters behind Seetaram. Did Udupi Police get hint of his plan and handcuff him? This seems plausible since B.V.Seetaram is known for his drama – like torching his own office to get insurance money, planning attack on his own printing press and distributors to get sympathy in the name of “freedom of press”.

******

Contempt of court by those protesting B.V.Seetaram’s Arrest? Why no one is shedding any tears for B.V.Seetaram in Coastal Karnataka

Without knowing facts journalists protest arrest of B.V.Seetaram. Are they aware that court ordered the arrest and protesting against arrest is equivalent to protesting against court?

Without knowing facts journalists protest arrest of B.V.Seetaram. Are they aware that court ordered the arrest and protesting against arrest is equivalent to protesting against court? Also seen in the photo is Gowri Lankesh - a known Naxal Leftist Terrorist Supporter in Bangalore.

Since police are only implementing court order, it is not clear why some journalists are protesting against B.V.Seetaram’s arrest.

Note that no genuine media personalities in Coastal Karnataka are shedding any tears for B.V.Seetaram as everyone here is well aware of his blackmail tactics. Only those like Gowri Lankesh (a naxal supporter), K.B.Ganapathy of Star of Mysore are protesting without knowing above facts.

Isn’t this contempt of court? Is the law different for journalists? Or are journalists above the law? Hon’ble Courts should take suo moto notice of these protests and issue notices to protesting journalists.

**************

B.V.Seetaram claims he is not an Editor when it suits him – when BVSee himself is claiming he is not a journalist / Editor why are other journalists saying it is a Freedom of Press issue?

B.V.Seetharam does not hesistate to send his office peons to jail by naming them as Editor and Publisher and washing off his hands from Karavali Ale’s blackmail journalism. (Click here how he misguided Press Council, Editors Guild earlier)

This is to protect himself from law. While poor “Editor”s end up in jail B.V.Seetaram continues his business by making blackmailing calls to innocent victims to collect money.

So big question is when B.V.See himself claims he is not Editor or Journalist why are other so-called journalists protesting his arrest in places like Bangalore and Mysore?

B.C.Road – KARAVALI ALE bundles burnt – tired of Karavali Ale’s blackmail journalism, people take law into their own hands!

September 1, 2007

Tired of Karavali Ale’s blackamail, people burn newspaper copies in B.C.Road 

According to reports, newspaper bundles of “Karavali Ale” – a well known rumour mongering, blackmailing eveninger in Coastal Karnataka – were burnt by people who are sick and tired of its Editor/Owner B.V.Seetharam and his gang of unethical, corrupt, blackmail journalists.

ಬಿ.ಸಿ.ರೋಡ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆಗೆ ಅದರ ಸ್ಥಾನ – ಚರಂಡಿ – ತೋರಿಸಿದ ಉದ್ರಿಕ್ತ ಜನರು!

People throw Karavali Ale into garbage

Karavali Ale which has ignited communal riots and whose Editor-in-Chief, B.V.Seetharam was arrested few months back for inciting hatred against minority community is also known for publicity stunts like damaging his own printing press to gain publicity and sympathy (and of course cheat insurance companies and banks!)

Don’t be surprised the usual shameless suspects like Press Clubs, Komu Souharda Vedike, Janapara Vedike take a protest march against this.

MANGALORE:Arundathi Roy shares stage with communal riot sponsor B.V.Seetharam of “Karavali Ale”

May 23, 2007

Arundathi Roy shares stage with Editor arrested for creating communal problems in Coastal Karnataka

In a recent “seminar” organised in Mangalore by a well known communal organisation “Komu Souharda Vedike”, writer Arundathi Roy shared the stage with B.V.Seetharam – who was arrested for causing communal tension in Coastal Karnataka and has a history of pouring fuel into communal riots.

Churumuri has more on her talk which touched very predictable topics like Gujarat etc. Not much surprise there.

However what is surprising is Ms.Roy shared the stage with a well known communal riot instigator like B.V.Seetharam was arrested not once but twice for causing communal tension in Mangalore.

It is really interesting to see double standards practised by someone like Arundathi Roy who has made a career out of bashing so called “communal forces” – and now sharing the stage with a communal riot instigator herself!

“THE STATESMAN” of Kolkata quotes UdupiPressVictim Blog on B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism

May 8, 2007

“The Statesman” of Kolkata covers Udupi Press Victim blog on B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism

Reader Prashanth Jain writes “I read about your blog in The Statesman Kolkata Edition. However their online version does not carry that article anymore, but Google’s cache contains the article”

Thanks Prashanth for forwarding the link.

Highlights from the article whose heading was “Journalist in the dock” – author unknown but is listed as “The author is The Statesman’s Bangalore-based Special Representative

While some people are supportive of the couple, others have accused them of seeking to blackmail the wealthy Jain community and other businessmen and firms for advertisements. For example, udupipressvictim.wordpress.com claimed that the eveninger, Karavali Ale, its chief editor and wife had demanded money from the wealthy Jain community in Mangalore for ensuring that he did not write against their munis.

Another blogger said: “What we have here is a simple case of sleazy blackmail journalism by Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam and the portraying of this as some kind of freedom of the Press issue is pure nonsense.

Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam have a history of writing against minority communities (remember the Kodikal church attack or attacks on Muslims during the Mangalore communal riots after Karavali Ale wrongly published the death of one teacher Bhat ~ when he was in fact alive?) And now when caught on the wrong foot (or rather, with the pen in the mouth), the whole incident is being portrayed as a freedom of Press issue.”

Kudos to the writer for giving credit to the blog (with complete address of the blog).

As usual send your feedback / tips to udupipressvictim@gmail.com
