When Rajdeep assaulted me – victim’s blog

Email from Satya Doshapati

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.

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.

  2. Thanks for writing your side of the story. Rajdeep must have been acting on someone’s instructions for a price. Truth should prevail. Let all know it through a court case.

  7. Why did you not kick in the balls? Your reaction was very mild. You had so many people with you, you should have at least given him few solid ones.

  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.

  13. Mahendar, I am proud of what u did. U stood up to a bully. He came with a vendetta to paint supporters there as rabid mobs and liken them with rioters. sadly his plan failed and his uppity got exposed.

  14. Proud of you! You proved 2 things:
    1) NRIs don’t become any less Indians after leaving India
    2) NRIs will stand shoulder to shoulder with their brothers & sisters at home to right size the modern “Mir Jaffers” & “Jai Chands”

    Jai Hind!

  16. Kudos to your restraint! Though, I wished you had kicked this SOB in his balls. After all this, the ROGUE goes about playing victim. The scum bag needs to come to his knees. I sincerely urge you to lodge a complaint and get this guy into the legal wrangle here. Please!

  17. Great job buddy! Thanks for sharing the details through this blog. NRIs all over the globe, Patriots all over the Nation are with you!

  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.

  20. I’m glad you pushed that stupid S.O.B.. He is behaved in a disgusting manner. He had no right to place his hands on you. He should be ashamed of himself. He is a Hindu hating peace of garbage!

  21. Mahender, kudos for your blog. That is not enough. Lets file a case against RS and his channel and get it banned from entering US solil. That will make RS untouchable by any other media. Call me 732-824-4040 – and i will find resources for the case and destroying RS and any channel he works for

  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

    Reply

  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 ..!!!

    I pity him..!!

    Kudos to you and people around there, who kept real cool after all the provocation/instigation!!!

  25. Please press charges. Hopefully he will either rot in jail or will never be able to get into the country again- that will be natural justice.

  26. He should a get a taste of American Prison. Go for it. File the case.

    Reply

  27. Yes, you should file a case for assault and abuse and maligning you.

  28. He is an anti-national working against India from quite sometime.He needs to be sent to Pakistan.

    Reply

  29. I think he was intentionally provoking NRIs so that the PMs visit gets negative coverage. But the more they try to defame NaMo the more success he is making.
    Good you stood up. Nothing wrong in pushing back a bully.

  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!

  31. Rajdeep has always indulged in such low class activities.. He should be tought a lesson in US… Please sue him in a US court

  32. This guy sold his soul to devil to get one of India’s highest honours, the Padma Vibhushan. He didn’t report on the Cash for votes scam. Rajdeep, some day you will get your comeuppance. Now all this drama to sell his book.

    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.

    Reply

  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.

    Reply

  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.

    Reply

  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.

  36. You should have smacked his face mate. He is trying to show his innocence via his media friends. We all stand tall with you. Sadly indian media is a puppet at foreign hands and journalist like him act at the call of foreign masters.

  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.
