Other tweets of BediJi in this matter can be find in her twitter account
Tarun Tejpal, Editor-in-Chief of Tehelka, has renounced his Editor-in-Chief post for six months after being accused of sexual assault by a woman journalist who works with the weekly magazine Tehelka. Now Tejpal becomes Super-Editor-in-Chief.
In politics Italian Origin Sonia GandhiJi topmost leader of the Congress presented the example of renounce of Prime Ministerial Post to become Super PM.

The speaker lineup in THiNK organized at Goa by Tehelka also featured leading figures such as Russian chess champion Garry Kasparov, former Newsweek editor Tina Brown, Kenyan paleontologist Louise Leakey, Indian environment activist Medha Patkar and perhaps most controversially, one of the founders of the Taliban, Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef from Afghanistan.
Tejpal’s renounce is the noble example of real secularism
The comment of NCW on this matter is also going to make history of impartiality and by its comment shows that NCW is great champion to defense the causes of women in India. NCW is unable to act sue moto in this sexual harassment in official duty hours.
The National Commission for Women (NCW) has said Mr Tejpal should face punishment if an FIR, or police complaint, is filed. “If the allegation is accepted, it is a cognizable offence,” said Nirmala Samant, a member of the rights panel.
In an e-mail to the magazine’s Managing Editor, Shoma Chaudhury, Mr Tejpal wrote: “I squarely take the blame for this… A bad lapse of judgment, an awful misreading of the situation, have led to an unfortunate incident that rails against all we believe in and fight for. I have already unconditionally apologised for my misconduct to the concerned journalist, but I feel impelled to atone further.”
There was a sex tape released ofAbhishek Singhvi where allegedly he was seen having sex with a female. Singhvi has also put a great example of renounce by resigning spokesperson post of Congress for some time and returning in his old post after completing vanvas.
NCW, Singhvi and other great champions of secularism have interest only in Gujarat snooping.
He added, “I feel atonement cannot be just words. I must do the penance that lacerates me. I am therefore offering to recuse myself from the editorship of Tehelka, and from the Tehelka office, for the next six months.”
Ms Chaudhury forwarded Mr Tejpal’s mail to Tehelka employees this evening and wrote: “There has been an untoward incident, and though he has extended an unconditional apology to the colleague involved, Tarun will be recusing himself as the editor of Tehelka for the next six months.”
Ms Chaudhury told NDTV, “This is an internal matter. The journalist concerned is satisfied with the action taken.”
“It is not right to say that she is satisfied. She continues to put forward her plea that Tehelka should set up a committee to look into sexual harassment,” the journalist’s confidante said. The young woman would “take each step as it comes,” she said.
A person close to the journalist rejected Tehelka’s claim that she is “satisfied with the action taken.” She alleged that the woman was subjected to “an act of grave sexual misconduct” and said she was “completely shattered and emotionally scarred.”
“The act happened continuously over a period of time…and despite the girl pleading that she is almost the age of his daughter…She pleaded ‘please don’t do this’…her ‘no’ was not accepted…it happened once and it happened the next day,” the journalist’s confidante told NDTV.
However, the incident raises a big questions as to whether such a case can be considered a closed chapter without a legal complaint. Following are some questions that remain unanswered:
– Is stepping aside for six months an answer in a sexual assault charge?
– If there’s no official complaint by the Tehelka staffer, can this be treated as a closed chapter?
– Was there a sexual offences committee set up at Tehelka as per law?
– Can an incident of molestation or rape just be treated as a private matter?
– Is non-filing of a complaint result of pressure or negotiation?
This, especially since the woman concerned is believed to have written an email to Chaudhury in which she narrates details of the assault. In the email, the woman has alleged that Tejpal physically assaulted her at least twice during the festival and that she informed three colleagues about the incidents when they happened. The female staffer said that she couldn’t inform Chaudhury at the time because it was impossible for her to get a minute alone with the managing editor given the demands of the festival on her senior colleague’s time.
In her email, the female staffer has asked that “Tehelka constitute an anti sexual harassment cell as per the Vishakha guidelines immediately, to investigate this matter. At the very least, I will need a written apology from Mr Tejpal…”
Top journalists described Tejpal’s letter and apology as grossly inadequate and demanded more accountability from the magazine. “It is meaningless for Tarun Tejpal to “recuse” himself as editor. Sexual harassment at Tehelka has to be dealt with according to law,” Tweeted senior editor Siddharth Varadarajan.
