Rumours are NOW surfacing that he had a nasty habit of blackmail journalism In short he wrote something nasty BUT TRUE about someone or some entity and then buried it after the payoff by not following up on the stories
According to ex-employees, however, increasingly the kind of journalism Tehelka was doing was not hurting the rich men who funded them. Kirpal(an ex employee of Tehelka ) had originally quit Tehelka after a dispute in which he claimed a story on Goa mining companies was held by the management while crucial permits were approved by the Goa government for the inaugural ThiNK festival in 2011. Tejpal publicly denied the accusation.
“Eventually compromises started happening because you need a lot of money, said Sevanti Ninan, editor of media website thehoot.org and a Mint columnist. “Whenever there was a sponsor involved for Think Fest, things would get murky for Tehelka and stories would be killed.” Source Livemint
On , JANUARY 01, 2011 Tehelka came out with a story on Hindutva Terrorism titled THE UNTURNED STONE Among other things it bought out for the first time the existence of three videos and 37 audiotapes.These had been made by self-styled seer Swami Dayanand Pandey alias Shankar Acharya alias Shukhakar Dwivedi,an RSS member Among the more interesting pieces of news that came out was the fact that some members of the Sangh parivar were trying to overthrow the Sovereign Government of India and a Captain of the Indian Army had gone to Israel and met some Israeli government officials in this respect
The exact words spoken by one of the main accused Col Purohit were LT COL PUROHIT: Swamiji, we haven’t spoken about certain things, but two operations have been done by us. ONE OF OUR OWN CAPTAINS HAS VISITED ISRAEL FOR TRAINING AND MEETING AND THERE WAS A VERY POSITIVE RESPONSE… WE DEMANDED FOUR THINGS FROM ISRAEL ________ CONTINUOUS AND UNINTERRUPTED SUPPLY OF ARMS AND TRAINING, OUR OFFICE WITH A SAFFRON FLAG IN TEL AVIV, POLITICAL ASYLUM AND SUPPORT FOR OUR CAUSE OF A HINDU NATION IN THE UN._________ ISRAEL HAS ASKED US TO SHOW SOMETHING ON THE GROUND AND HAVE PROMISED AT LEAST A SUPPLY OF ARMS AND POLITICAL ASYLUM……….… I have a state-wise population of Muslims in each state but I have only three AK-47s. We couldn’t buy much earlier because we didn’t have funds. See ISRAEL TRAINING AND ARMING INDIAN TERRORISTS PLOTTING COUP
On MARCH 2011 Tejpal the editor of Tehelka went to Israel as a guest of the Government of Israel to participate in a festival called Words on Water India and Israel in Conversation…………….Tejpal the “fearless” journalist never bothered to follow up the crucial link of what was the name and unit of the Captain who visited Israel and who he met in Israel ……….In fact no one in the Indian media or the Indian investigative agencies has bothered to follow up on mysterious captain and his equally mysterious journey to Israel
Of course merely attending such a Festival must have been small consolation for Tejpal After March 2011 Tejpal started his famous (now infamous) THiNK (thats how it’s spelled ) It advertised itself as India’s most eclectic, thought-provoking and egalitarian platform for ideas from across the globe. It was PRESENTED as a Tehelka magazine event but it actually was a Private company entirely owned by the Tejpal family and his associate Shoma Anand which owned the rights to and profits from THiNK
What happened to the Mysterious Captain who went to Israel to seek help to overthrow the Government of India?
On 7th and 8th November 2013 Tejpal allegedly raped an employee TWICE in a lift whilst both were attending a THiNK Festival in Goa ALL IN LESS THEN 5 MINUTES As per Indian law the name of the employee Tejpal allegedly raped has never been disclosed
Tehelka did not follow up or disclose the name of the Captain who visited Israel or the two Israelis who allegedly came to India “sat here met and talked” to Dayanand Pandey Malegaon blast accused
COULD THERE BE A LINK BETWEEN THESE EVENTS AND THE ISRAEL SANGH TERROR LINKS STORY ?
