Look who is talking : Tarun Tejpal steps down for 6 months as Editor of Tehelka
Mr. Anjum of News24 writes on Tarun Tejpal harassment story,
खुद ही मुजरिम और खुद ही मुंसिफ कैसे हो सकते हैं बॉस …..
बड़े गौर से सुन रहा था ये जमाना तुम्ही फंस गए दास्तां कहते- कहते!
मैने पहले भी कई बार लिखा है …फिर कह रहा हूं कि अगर मीडिया में भी नारायण साईं और आसाराम हैं तो उनका असली चेहरा भी सामने आना चाहिए ….हम दूसरों को आईना दिखाते हैं …दूसरों को नसीहत देते हैं …..संतों और शैतानों से लेकर नेताओं और अभिनेताओं के चरित्र पर चिंतन करते हैं तो फिर अपने भीतर भी झांकना चाहिए … लड़कियों को भी हिम्मत करके आगे आना चाहिए …अगर सुप्रीम कोर्ट के जज के आचरण के खिलाफ एक इंटर्न सामने नहीं आई होती तो पता नहीं चलता कि जज भी ऐसा कर सकते हैं …मीडिया में बहुत दुर्योधन होंगे …
Bravo Mr. Anjum! its easier said than done!
I must say your memory is very short lived, let me remind you of 27th June 2013, Media Khabar had organized a Media Conclave in memory of of S. P. Singh, practically all the stalwarts of Electronic Media barring the editor in Chief of ABP news, were present. I too had an opportunity to be a part of this conclave , where I asked Ajeet Anjum and Mr. Naqvi , and Mr. Rahul Dev that why did they chose to keep quiet when I was being victimized at India’s no.1 news Channel ABP new formerly known as Star News.
And Mr. Anjum had the audacity to say “ there is no answer” rest of them present there chose to keep quiet.
But Mr. Naqvi has decided to break his silence now, better late than never, this is what he has to say on Mr. Tejpal”s Story

तरुण तेजपाल पर लगे यौन शोषण के आरोपों पर क़ानूनी प्रक्रिया को दरकिनार कैसेकिया जा सकता है? क़ानूनी प्रक्रिया से मामले का निपटारा हो, यही सही रास्ता है

Tehelka case is eg of how not to deal w/ sexual assault. Hope those in charge will give the young girl the courage to file a police complaint. Anyone who advises a sexual assault victim not to file a police case is guilty. It is our silence that enables, emboldens offenders the most.
Why did you chose to keep quiet when I needed you most Ms Haider? No Media House , No National Commission of Women, No Minority Commission has the right or has a face to comment on Mr. Tarun Tejpal harassment story because they chose to keep quiet , when I, Sayema Sahar a suspended employee of Star News aka ABP news went from pillar to post to all these commissions, media houses pleading them to come with me in my fight for justice ..but they turned a deaf ear to my woeful tale of harassment.
Vulnerable, hapless, helpless and traumatized I went to the HR, I went to the editor In Chief of Star News/ ABP News, pleading to give me a patient hearing only to be further harassed by the system.
When I was denied any help of any sort within the organisation I went to NCW, least did I know at that time that it is a compromised commission which has no tooth of its own.
I was made to believe that my integrity and my modesty were in safe hands but I was mistaken, NCW chose to go my employers, way.
My fight with THIS BIG MEDIA HOUSE is still on, with no help from anywhere, its just my belief in the age old adage that “truth always triumphs” that keeps me going .
Witnesses were created, documentary evidences were deleted , and the men who harassed me were promoted at Star News/ ABP News.
I know not of the unfortunate girl in Mr. Tajpal’s case but I would certainly want to give her a word of caution , for not going to these toothless bodies, it would only add to her agony.
I started my fight for justice when my baby was 6 months old , she is 4 and a half today and my fight continues.
Why only for six months???
Why not until the case the case is solved
