UPDATE: A detailed and well-sourced explanation of how media censorship evolved in Nepal from 2012, for all non-propaganda news concerning Ram Bomjon, can be found in the introductory part of the article Media on Ram Bahadur Bomjon’s Controversies .
As I am explaining in the article https://halkoriatimes.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/why-is-the-nepali-media-afraid-to-publish-about-bomjon/ and https://halkoriatimes.wordpress.com/2015/06/24/does-bomjon-rule-the-nepali-media/, Ram Bahadur Bomjon does not like the truth about his dark and inhuman deeds to come out. The main reason why he constantly needs donations is to cover the financial expenses of convincing media houses, their journalists and managers, as well as government officials, to stop publishing anything about his past criminal deeds, which had been extensive, and also not to dare to publish anything about his recent violence and tortures of people. And the money, coming mainly from Western sources, as a direct witness of these “bribing-project meetings” had described, is really big. Only by this can we explain that 99% of the articles in mainstream and even smaller online media had been humbly deleted, and new ones are not written, apart from propagandist ones (like the latest 2017 World Peace Maitri Puja in Kathmandu, where all the big TV channels and newspapers had been competing to show loyalty towards the “Brutal Buddha”. Exceptions are few (Setopati), and they will probably not last long, as another way of silencing, apart of bribes, is always threatening.
Another reason why the Bomjon Lobby is successful in altering the truth in Nepal is that they are using the weak point of every Nepali: PATRIOTISM. They are telling every critic that they should not “blacken the Guru” in the eyes of the public, as that would destroy Nepal’s tourism development, they claim, stop (the alleged!) foreign investment out of Bomjon’s Western followers etc. They are convincing previously pragmatic Nepalis to stop looking at Bomjon’s dark stains, his “controversies”, and just looking at the bright future, when Bomjon will be presented to the World as the Second Buddha, as the Maitreya, Savior Messiah, what would make Nepal world-wide famous, even more than due to Lumbini, the birth-place of Gautama Buddha. And this is something what works with many Nepalis, especially those who are ready to sacrifice a few (by now more than 40!) human beings for the “good cause” of promoting Nepal in the world…

Media is regularly condemned by Bomjon’s followers, when it dares to show the crimes of their guru. Yet when the same media they had been condemned, humiliates itself to show Bomjon as a great holy man of the millennium, than the followers do not criticize it and let it publish the propaganda… By this “sugar and stick” method the Bomjon Lobby and its political contacts force all Nepalese media to obey what they prescribe them, when it comes to publishing about Bomjon.
Is it shameful? When already two people actually died due to Bomjon’s so called “internal punishments”, and when dozens of his victims with broken bones and raped are scared to come out, and the Nepalese media KNOWS them, has their witness account interviews, has their photos, names and videos – than it is shameful really!
What kind of “world-wide fame” as a “holy land” would Ram Bomjon ensure to Nepal, if the price of it is not just against the law of the country, but also against God and humanity?
A few months ago I had a discussion with a former follower of Bomjon, who claimed that it is not true that so many Nepalis and Indian articles and video (TV) links had been deleted from the Internet, which deal with the controversial past of Maitriya Guru. The below list of so called “emptied links”, or dead links, is speaking for itself.
The extensive number of Nepalese and Indian links had been deleted at a “political decision” in Autumn 2012, according to which it is forbidden to write any truth about Ram Bahadur Bomjon, which would shed a negative light on him. We had preserved them as a proof about the great amount of articles in Nepal dealing with Bomjon’s controversies, and to show the great size of Censorship which took over the Nepalese media concerning any Bomjon-related topics.
Seeing the huge amount of truthful critical articles written about Bomjon’s attacks, kidnappings, hostage holdings, tortures and rape-ordering, the fact that Nepalese media does not take the responsibility to follow the truth and is licking the feet of a lie, is alarming. The links list have no hyperlinks added and the “http” and “www” had been deleted from them, as the huge amount of dead reference links would harm this website’s ranking (it did already!). If any link happen to work, please inform me through the Contact Form. Thank you!
