Arnab Goswami talks about pro-India and Nationalism, which quite obviously irks Bharka Dutt

Yesterday during his primetime Newshour Debate on July 26, which happened to be Kargil Diwas, Goswami had called some of his rival channels sympathizers of terrorists and pro-Pakistan and had called for stringent punishment for them. Taking strong exception to the #ProPakistanDoves term used by him for journalists, Dutt questioned his silence over the alliance agreement between BJP and PDP that commits them to talks with Pakistan and Hurriyat and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s own Pakistan outreach.


Miffed over Times Now Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami demanding strict action against “pseudo-secular and pro-Pakistan” journalists, NDTV consulting editor Barkha Dutt has written a strongly . Dutt said she is ashamed to be from the same industry as Goswami who called for gagging of media.

barkha arnabBy the way, Times now is the only channel which is still unbiased and maintained his integrity. This is the reason it has 70% Viewership. He actually pointed at Pro Pakistan Doves, not sure why Bharka was miffed at his stand, any Nationalist would be more than happy with his remark and though words.

So he drones on and on about Pro Pakistan Doves without one word on the JK alliance agreement that commits the BJP and PDP to talks with Pakistan and Hurriyat and is silent on Modi’s own Pakistan outreach- neither of which I object to- but since Arnab Goswami measures patriotism by such views why is he so silent on the government? Chamchagiri?” wrote Barkha.

She also expressed disgust over sections of media’s silence on Goswami calling them ISI agents. “Imagine, a journalist actually exhorts the government to shut down sections of the media, misrepresents them as ISI agents and terror sympathisers, calls for them to be tried and acted against. And our fraternity remains locked into politically correct and timid silence,” wrote the NDTV journalist.


Here are some of the counter and hilarious twitter responses for her post.
