IIPM, a rather shady and not very well known management institute is causing some serious trouble.
Rashmi Bansal, an excellent and well known blogger, and editor of a youth magazine called JAM had carried an article where JAM had investigated some of IIPM's tall claims. She also wrote a clarification post with details here. IIPM went on a rampage, spreading lies about an Aaj Tak "expose" on JAM (there was none), and a bunch of thugs have attacked Rashmi on her blog with vile abuse.
But it gets more bizarre. One of the best known Indian bloggers, Gaurav Sabnis, linked to Rashmi's article, and what does he get? IIPM threatens him with a lawsuit, AND makes direct threats against Gaurav.What's worse....they apply unethical pressure on his company, IBM. What does Gaurav do? He shows them the finger. That's right, he stands by what he's said, and resigns from his job.
I didn't know about IIPM before this, and didn't give a damn. But what IIPM has done is unacceptable, and all of us stand by Rashmi and Gaurav.
