Defamation case by Sonia Maino (Gandhi?)quashed

Namaste
Below is a message from Sri Narain Kataria against whom the INOC had filed a 100 Million USD case. Sri Narain is 78 years and has an indomitable spirit. You would remember that New York based Indian National Overseas Congress Inc. (INOC) has filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York for $100 million against three prominent Hindu activists Narain Kataria, Arish Sahani and Bharat Barai for allegedly defaming UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi by releasing a full page advertisement in The New York Times during her October 2007 visit to the US.

The Complaint filed by Indian National Overseas Congress at the instance of Indian National Congress headed by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, against Satya Dosapati, Naresh Sharma, Mahatma Gandhi Center and Hindu Temple, International Foundation, Inc., Sunanda Thali, Hindu International Concil Against Defamation, Inc., and John Does 1-100, was dismissed with prejudice by Judge Nicholas J. Stroumtsos, Jr., J.S.C. on Jan. 14th, 2009

Kindly go through the letter written by Sri Narain Kataria and also the article by V.Sundaram which gives a background to the case.

Message by Sri Narain Kataria

” Dear Colleagues:
It will give you pleasure to know that the Complaint filed by Indian National Overseas Congress at the instance of Indian National Congress headed by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, against Satya Dosapati, Naresh Sharma, Mahatma Gandhi Center and Hindu Temple, International Foundation, Inc., Sunanda Thali, Hindu International Concil Against Defamation, Inc., and John Does 1-100, was dismissed with prejudice by Judge Nicholas J. Stroumtsos, Jr., J.S.C. on Jan. 14th, 2009.

In this connection, I would like to inform you that earlier Indian National Overseas Congress had filed two cases against Narain Kataria (me), Arish Sahani, et al. in New York Court and against Satya Dosapati, Sunanda Thali, et al. in New Jersey Court in the amout of $100 million. Since the allegations were frivolous, flimsy, and had no locus standi, they were rejected. The New Jersey case was flatly dismissed and New York case was withdrawn by the Plaintiff.

The purpose behind filing these three cases against us was to muzzle our voice, make us financially bankrupt, isolate us, make an example of us and terrorize us into submission. But the unity and solidarity displayed by NRIs have shattered the malicious designs of those who do not believe in freedom of expression and liberty of thought.

This is the third consecutive ignominious defeat suffered by Indian Natiional Overseas Congress.

We have set an unprecedented example for all the NRIs to follow. The lesson is that if we all stand up together courageously with unshakeable determination, no one, howsoever powerful he or she may be, can match our resolve and resources.

Congratulation to all of you for this brilliant victory. The credit for this goes to all of you who stood behind us like a rock.

With highest regards,
Narain Kataria”
