In a welcome landmark move from the media, national television news channel Aaj Tak followed by Telugu television channel aired public apology to Paramahamsa Nithyananda for having aired defamatory items featuring the morphed video.
In a significant ruling that is likely to set a precedent in cases involving privacy of an individual, the self regulatory body of entertainment channels, Broadcast Content Complaints Council (BCCC), has asked popular television channel ‘Star Vijay’ to apologise to actress Ranjitha Menon for showing a “morphed” video featuring her in a compromising position with Swami Nithyananda.
A strong legal notice was issued severally by Nithyananda Gurukul and the parents of the students for a highly defamatory program telecast by the television news channel Times Now. The program cast aspersions and false and baseless allegations on the operations of the gurukul and its spiritual founder Paramahamsa Nithyananda.
On 13 March 2013, Sri Nithyananda Swami filed a defamation suit against Suvarna 24x7 at the JMFC, Ramanagara. The channel along with Ms.Aarthi Rao, the false rape victim, has been waging a relentless vengeful slander and abuse campaign the channel has been doing on him.
