Hello
Dinamalar Editor/s:

Sub.: Filing a complaint about unethical and illegal publication of private information without any kind of permission.

Ref.: Dinamalar issue dated November 24, 2011.

The Dinamalar issue dated November 24, 2011 published a front page story on us, S. P. Udayakumar, M. Pushparayan, and M. P. Jesuraj, the leaders of the ‘People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy’ that has been struggling against the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project.

Your news item has included our personal and private information such as home addresses, home phone numbers, mobile numbers and email addresses without obtaining any kind of prior permission from any of us. Your story has also included libelous and erroneous information about us without giving any kind of evidence or material proof.

The story has been written, edited and published with the criminal intent of inciting public anger and outrage against us and provoking the public to attack us and our families. Ever since the story is published, our family members have been receiving obscene and threatening phone calls in our home numbers, and we all have been receiving similar calls on our mobile phones from your readers who tend to replicate your own foul language and unruly conduct.

Your story has caused enormous physical suffering, psychological pressure and mental agony to us and our family members and the story has endangered our and our family members’ safety and security.

Your criminal behavior has breached every journalistic ethos and norms practiced in India. We and our family members have filed criminal complaints with the Tamil Nadu police and our lawyers have initiated legal action against your newspaper in appropriate courts.

Yours truly,

S. P. Udayakumar
M. Pushparayan
M. P. Jesuraj

    Dear Sir,

    I am very gratitude to Dinamalar , due to I was worship to Lord Managalanathar and Managalampigai at ThiruUthiragosamanagai . A beautiful incomparable temple in the world which gives tremendous amount of pleasure while worshiping . Please expose this temple futures through your Anmeegamalar . I gathered the message through the weekly small script about thiruvasam and the name of the temple in the songs.

    Definitely the society will blossoming those who will visit there , I got uncontrolled emotions and vibrations during my visit . The Archagar’s and temple servants found very poor in nature and we want to overcome their positions by promoting the values of the temple by proper media to society . I am a small person and you and your media is a right source for the same .

    Please this is my humble request.
