Suicide following Australian hoax call to Kate Windsor’s hospital

The following is an extract from BBC News:

Duchess hoax: Australian radio station to review practices

The Australian radio station at the centre of the UK royal hospital hoax death says it is going to review its broadcasting practices.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead three days after putting through a call that gathered details of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge’s condition.

The hoax call was made by two DJ’s, who have been taken off air and are being counselled.

My thoughts

Yes, the prank call which set everything in motion was a catalyst for so many events, for so many people, and yes, I feel all prank calls and practical jokes (where no permission is given) can set up lessons for people to learn (to whatever degree), but the two radio hosts which initiated the hoax call are in no way karmically responsible for the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

What is really sad is the hate, anger and resulting upset that is being perpetuated through the media itself.  Let things rest.  Jacintha is now happy in the spiritual realms, and after initially feeling troubled by the whole situation, she has released and healed all feelings of hurt that caused her to take her own life.

It is tragic, to be sure, but when it comes to suicide, no one is to blame.

I feel sorry for Mel and Michael.  I wish this message could reach them now.  I understand the hoax call was prerecorded, reviewed and sanctioned by others within the media organisation, so it is certainly not just a case of two people alone being a part of this scenario.

I have made a prank call or two when I was in my youth.  I then looked back on this years later and felt distinctly uncomfortable about these past actions.  If I had one wish in regard to this, it would be to see the practice of hoax calls and practical jokes, where no permission had been given, and emotional upset was caused, seen for what they are – an intrusion and exploitation of the honesty of others.

Much love,
