when Rajdeep assaulted me – victim’s blog

Please see below the details from victim himself.   If anyone knows Mahendar please ask him to get in touch with me.   In US (maybe in India as well), the state will hire an attorney for criminal actions.  There is no financial burden whatsoever.  Mahendar needs to come forward and report to NYT Police both on Rajdeep and his media agency.   In addition, civil lawsuits can be filed and we will help find pro-bono lawyers.
This is not about vengeance against anyone, this is about disgusting propaganda that has been practiced in India in the name of journalism.    If Rajdeep committed a wrong act in the spur of the moment, that may be dismissed as being human but turning around and showing yourself as a victim (by showing only part of video) is extremely reprehensible on part of a journalist.
While I urge everyone to sign the petition, most importantly to pursue legal angle.   When we ignore to pursue such acts, we are allowing them to be acceptable.  Remember, the world is a dangerous place not because there are bad people, but because there are good people who chose not to act (Einstein).
Our team has fought three cases of Sonia Gandhi with multi-million dollar lawsuits in US and got them dismissed and we can provide him guidance in this matter.    But Mahendar need to reach out to us.
It is time to send a message to section of english media Indian journalists who think they can get away with pseudo journalism.

Satya

When Rajdeep assaulted me

I write this for two reasons: to add context to what is evident from the Zee News video clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54xGasucqAc ; to avoid a Rashomon like state and rebut Rajdeep Sardesai’s attempt to paint himself the victim. He a big fish and has friends in the media, so he may succeed, but my job is to stand up.
Bored standing in the long line to get into MSG, I took a quick stroll and saw much media coverage, including the likes of Chaubey, Sawant and Sardesai. I noticed Rajdeep taunt a group of young Indians: He asked them ‘Did Modi teach you to do this?…” i.e. shouting Rajdeep Murdabad.
Watch this video to see how Rajdeep was essentially trying to continue his 12 year hate-work in trying to tarnish the PM. http://indiatoday.intoday.in/video/rajdeep-sardesai-modi-crowd-frenzied-modi-fans-new-york/1/393219.html.  Unable to get the ‘negative’ answers he’s looking for, Rajdeep says ‘So what you guys are saying is that the “Media” was unfair to Modi’ (this part is not on videos I have seen). I immediately picked up his spin and shot back: Not the media, it is NewsTraders like you who are unfair. And I called him “NewsTrader No.1”. This seems to have made him lose his mind: He removed his jacket, and walked over to me (this is the part in the zee news video) and started verbally abusing me (“arsehole” and other threat-cum-abuse). I was surprised at hearing the abuse and his threatening body language given his ever-cool studio self. I retorted with the same epithet. This led to his turning around and attacking me – grabs my collar and shoves me (guess its his privilege in his un-Modified India). I was left with no choice but to push him back.
I would urge people to note 4 things:
1. Rajdeep indulges in unprovoked tarnishing and demeaning of the Indian PM on foreign soil and Indians living there https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F1XP9I49Fw
2. Rajdeep starts the verbal abuse / intimidation
3. Rajdeep starts the physical assault
4. Rajdeep turns around and spins victimhood – ‘frenzied Modi fans abuse him’.
Is it even remotely acceptable for a senior Indian journalist to engage in unprovoked insulting of our elected PM on foreign soil while he’s on an important diplomatic tour, and wilfully trivialize a unique event (by continuing his political battle with the PM) that allowed the NRI community and the Indian Govt to build a stronger bond?
I believe you just cannot carry your personal battle with your PM onto foreign soil and cause harm to the country.
While I reflect upon what next steps to take, I urge everyone to write to the India Today group condemning such dastardly behavior by their ‘senior’ employee. I request the media (i have no faith in NewsTraders) to take this message to their viewership.
I reflected much on this since then — what explains Rajdeep’s egregious, shameful and harmful behavior? A apt word in American local parlance sums it up best: He’s a Hater.

  8. If he assaulted you first, as the videos I have seen appear to show, then you have a case for assault and battery. You need to consult a lawyer. From what I know, assault does not have to involve physical contact — that is battery.

    The wiki says, “An assault is carried out by a threat of bodily harm coupled with an apparent, present ability to cause the harm. It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in either criminal and/or civil liability. Generally, the common law definition is the same in criminal and tort law. There is, however, an additional criminal law category of assault consisting of an attempted but unsuccessful battery. The term is often confused with battery, which involves physical contact.”

    Best wishes.

  9. Sir, with the clear evidence available on camera, please go ahead and resgister a complaint with the cops for assault and battery. Make him understand that his ‘holier than thou’ attitude does not entitle him to verbally and physically assault another person. All self respecting and proud Indians are in solidarity with you.

    2) NRIs will stand shoulder to shoulder with their brothers & sisters at home to right size the modern “Mir Jaffers” & “Jai Chands”

  18. “…son of the Indian Test cricketer Dilip Sardesai,..”. Sadly in a country as classist as India, this kind of sentence tells you all you need to know about a person’s character. Indian Americans may have been advantaged relative to the average Indian, but we had to leave to escape the feudalistic system that these rich Indians created to monopolize opportunity. Now we’ve surpassed the success of Indian good-for-nothing gentry and we’re coming back to take back what these elitist, Rahul Gandhis of India have taken from the common people who work hard and earn what they have. Modi is a perfect example of that. Indian Americans stood behind this common man from day one, and he will make strides in ending neo-fuedalism in India. If Sardesai gets drunk and runs over a family of homeless Indians, he would get away with it. We should have shown him that day what its like to be on the receiving end of this.

  22. Don’t just let him go scotfree, being a senior journalist he should have behaved himself,known his limits, it goes to prove that he was not there to report PMs US trip but was there precisely to create a scene to bring bad name to our PM

  23. Kudos to you my friend, for standing up for the country and the people of India. Scums like Rajdeep Sardesai have been the reason this country got left behind in the committee of nations. Now when there is one leader who dreams to change all that, these guys have tried their best to push that back. Your standing up to him only shows that things are changing. There is hope, for sure!

  24. I was there, he was calling for all this. His behavior was completely childish, every small thing mattered. It was as if his first job was to get into all this , and his so called journalism job was secondary ..!!!

  30. Journalism comes with responsibility, loyalty and obligation to serve the truth and truth alone. NewsTraders must be sacked and it’s high time to raise voice against those who indulge in unethical practices and misuse this profession just to satisfy their personal needs and opinions! Rajdeep must be sacked and thanks Mahender for bringing it to everyone’s notice!

    Anyway Mahender, you’re a national hero. I don’t know if you slapped him, but if you did, thanks. I hope this starts a trend.

  33. I don’t know what Modi did. Let’s assume Modi did something in 2002. But this guy is running with a personal vendetta against him. So who’s a bigger hater? Modi or Rajdeep? Rajdeep you’re a rotten mind. You’re going Senile.

  34. See boss your version is getting defeated by the big-fish friends of Rajdeep. Unless you give complaint you are not vindicated. Atleast approach a lawyer.

  35. Please, please, please do not let go of this culprit. Sue him, file a police complaint, get him arrested, let him rot in jail for a few years. Such uncivilized behaviour is unacceptable, Rajdeep has to spend the next few years in jail. I cannot believe he graduated from Oxford University. He behaved like an illiterate, well actually he behaved worse than illiterates. Get him thrown in jail. I want to see him in court in shackles.

  37. We are at Fault
    We clamour around these news journalist as if they are hero’s of modern time, fighting for India, instead they are chamchas of the 1st order, looking forward to remunerations in form of awards by their political friends. And we have placed them next to Bollywood hero’s and heroine’s.
    POLITICIANS breed them for their own selfish motos. Almost all journalists have aligned themselves with some political party I.e Rajdeep with Congress
    Rajat Sharma with BJP
    The list goes on …
    Instead we all should follow and admire the unknown CAMERAMEN who risk their lives to bring the truth via their perfectly timed shots.
    World over CAMERAMEN are respected except in India.
    Its high time we stop hero worshiping these jounalists and get to know the cameramen instead by names and start following them instead of these Chamcha Journalist’s.

    Rajdeep Sardesai has been for a long time acting like a subversive agent on behalf of the Breaking India forces. He has a demented mind that twists the truth to suit some very nefarious objectives.

    The Rajdeep Sardesai video no one will post on youtube or Social Media!
    Rajdeep was already trending on twitter after what happened earlier in the day before the Modi’s speech at the Madison Square Garden. You guys saw that the video, didn’t you. (This was shot before PM arrived at Madison Square Garden) But this is the episode that no one will tell you about, and in fact, I DARE EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO RECORDED THIS BUT WON’T POST IT FOR REASONS NOT TO BE NAMED.
    Senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai. Image courtesy: IBNliveSenior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai. Image courtesy: IBNlive
    The Story Part II ( Right after the event at Madison Square Garden) I was at Times Square when I heard or in fact read about it as the screen out there flashed a tweet about Rajdeep’s episode earlier in the day.
    Once done interviewing and usual stuff, took a walk down to Madison Square Garden. The Venue where Rajdeep was heckled in the morning. By the time I reached, the speech was still on, so took a pit-stop right across the street at my hotel to charge the batteries of my cell phone and my digicam.
    I return, interviewed a couple of people on their way out. But while I interviewed the last family, I hear some noise, quite different from ‘Har Har Modi’ or the ‘Modi Modi’ chant across the 7th Avenue. I turn around only to find Rajdeep Sardesai and a senior cameraperson in the middle of a mob trying to calm down a group of approximately 50 people around him. My first Reaction: Are these guys for real?
    Second reaction: To see if any other TV crew was there, none! I barge in, just to check if Rajdeep was alright. Yes, he was. Smiling, calm, and trying to reason out a crowd which wasn’t prepared to listen to anything he said. Then the pushing and shoving begins. A barrage of abuses follow. Why? Probably because of Rajdeep’s tweet about an influential person staying in the same hotel as Narendra Modi’s.
    The mob called him by names and hurled the choicest of words towards him. When I tried to shield the fellow journalist, I realised, that I became a target as well. This went on for good 10-15 minutes. The NYPD was right there, but won’t blame them for not knowing what was going on in the middle of that crowd of 50 odd people. The cameraman had to ensure his equipment was safe, so was trying his best he could, to fend off a few people who tried to come closer to Rajdeep. This went on for good 10 minutes.
    Despite my repeated requests to stay away from Rajdeep, the mob continued to shout pro-Modi slogans right in front of his face to instigate him. A particular person wearing glasses, and once again in an orange attire, almost shoved his phone into the cameraman’s lens to which Rajdeep protested.
    Luckily, fellow scribes Mohit Roy Sharma and Bhupendra Chaubey arrived at the scene. Three of us literally made a human chain, to get Rajdeep out of that place. I’m sure all of this is on tape as the cameraman might have stopped recording, but the PCR back in India would have everything that transpired in front of that camera lens.
    I say this with conviction that a lot of people had their cameras rolling as well. The abuses, the pushing and shoving, and the instigation, all on tape.
    Yes, you have every right to be a supporter, but let’s not mix a fan with a fanatic. Learn to respect other people. Learn to respect to earn respect. Just a few minutes ag o, the Prime Minster delivered a lovely speech about peace and how India is a great democracy. But you guys defy all logic.
    I hope this post is shared and reaches all the people who saw the second episode right in front of their eyes and captured it on their cameras.
    Look inside you, and just think what you did and ponder upon what you could have done.
    Peace
    Mr mahendra u r misleading people with ur baseless version

  57. Mahendar, please file a complaint and update the blog. These are the kind of incidents where we feel helpless in India(unless you know some influential person), but that is not the case in US. Please follow up with all the evidence. I am no fan of any person, but I just don’t want to see someone getting away with chalta hai attitude. So please, file a complaint and update us all.

  58. This man Rajdeep Sardesai has a pathological hatred for our PM (whom I would rather prefer to describe as LEADER) Mr Narendra Modi, BJP and anyone who talks Nationalism. His hatred is so intense that many a times his Psychopathic behaviour, his frustration and irritation immediately reflects on his face and body as soon as anybody starts praising Mr Modi or BJP.
    I am Proud of you my brother and love you so much.
    Kudos to you. You taught a good lesson to this man (whom I won’t call a journalist, he is rather a blabbering TV anchor who tries to satisfy his egos by abusing any one who welcomes Mr Modi)
    He is a blot on his profession and is unable to conceal his emotions.
    Anytime you visit India do give me an honour to host a dinner for you.

    If Senior journalist want to see a Crowd Frenzy, they should visit Tamil Nadu after the court concluded that a politician was guilty of corruption.

    If Senior journalist wants to question integrity of a Representative of People of India, they should have questioned the previous un-elected Representatives of Republic of India.

    It seems the senior journalists don’t consider themselves as sane voice and focusing on issues marring the Nation, but it seems happy to play a role of brokers for those aspiring to rule our Nation.

    How does foreign soil or desi soil make a difference. A question asked by a journo anywhere in the world would hold good BECAUSE THAT IS HIS JOB!!
    It is his job to ask questions whether you like it not. Not every journalist has to have a personal battle to report a news.
    Everyone has an opinion, which probably would not match yours. Live with it! Thats the beauty of democracy. The world does not revolve around you.

    If you do not like the question he asked, just say so. Its just plain stupid to heckle/ intimidate and chant anti-journalist slogan.

    Its just shameful that the fight turned physical.
    But tell me, if you went about doing your job(whatever that may be) and 100 people start heckling around you and start chanting slogans against you, would you go and hug them?

  87. A SENIOR JOURNALIST FROM INDIA WHO SHAMED MEDIA AND THE COUNTRY THROUGH HIS BEHAVIOUR

    It is unfortunate that on such a solemn occasion at NY, just ahead of the Prime Minister’s much-awaited speech to thousands of the Indian Diaspora, a Senior journalist from India openly indulged in highhandedness and exhibited the height of his arrogance. He has shamed media and the country through his behaviour. A good news in this connection is that Media in India has finally woken up to the reality of filth within and has started responding to it. Here is a link to Zee News giving a detailed coverage on the incident and questioning Rajdeep Sardesai: http://tinyurl.com/qa94uxb ‘This is the right opportunity and we must maintain the pressure till Rajdeep is brought to book. Modi-followers don’t want to sit quite letting irresponsible and unethical media people like Rajdeep get away with their mischief. As most have indicated in their comments, Rajdeep has fallen in terms of journalistic standards’. Read and sign Petition at http://tinyurl.com/krm96rb (‘Remove Rajdeep Sardesai from Headlines Today channel’) by Nagaraja Gundappa Bengaluru. As this petition reveals: 1. Rajdeep Sardesai called a person who had gathered to watch Narendra Modi’s event in Newyork an asshole and then misbehaved by physically pushing him and then got pushed back and then showed only the video footage of him being pushed back to portray as if he has been victimised. This is dirty trick politics that does not befit a journalist. 2. He has shown a classist attitude and insulted the NRIs by declaring that they have money but no class. 3. He abuses people for supporting Mr. Narendra Modi in New York calling them frenzied crowd just because he was heckled. How Rajdeep Sardesai throws the first punch at NaMo supporters and then claims victim-hood?

  88. I have signed the petition to oust RS. Have you?

    Just as we have felt the need to oust corrupt politicians, let us come together again to oust these kind of journalists as they can influence common man’s view by the use of technology.
