Land Mafia don Jaggi Vasudev and the valiant fight of an journalist activist against Isha foundation
When you are an activist and when you fight for the livelihood of Tribal people and when you fight against a scamster in spiritual guru cloak like Jaggi Vasudev of Isha foundation who acts like a mafia don and illegally acquires the land of the poor, the odds are always against you and the battle is always going to be rough.
Siva Apt a good friend of mine is an anti-corruption activist, a environmentalist, and a fearsome journalist, for years together he fought against the illegal land grabbing of Isha foundation, he exposed the fake "Godman" Jaggi Vasudev and his Benamis who have amassed land that belong to the Tribal people, the Forest department and encroached the Elephant corridor. Siva's fight for justice was relentless and no matter how many threats came his way he never backed down and just recently he exposed the 44 acre land grab that Isha foundation and it's Benami's stole from the tribal people, for exposing this crime the price Siva pays now is to be rotting in jail on false charges.
Last Saturday Isha foundation used one of their employee who is a tribal woman to give a false complaint against Siva in Alandurai saying that he took Rs 4000 from her promising her a land patta and not delivering it, the police did what they do best and filed false charges against Siva under Section 294(b) (punishment for sings, recites or utters any obscene song, ballad or words in or near any public place), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) and Protection of Civil Rights (PCR) Act. It goes without saying that all the charges are completely baseless and vindictive and orchestrated by Isha foundation to finish off Siva for good.
The tribal people are now coming out in large numbers to support Siva but it is not enough because the media is not exposing the truth and are siding with Isha foundation by hiding the facts, we need to stand by a good soul like Siva who fights for the right of those people who are treated like slaves who are cheated and taken advantage of by Corporations, Spiritual foundations, Government and everyone in-between. I urge you to share this as much as possible tag as many people as possible and demand the release of Siva immediately.
