Pakistanis just like to quote NDTV and Rahul Gandhi: Arnab Goswami tells a Pakistani panelist on his show

After India's decision to strip Article 370 and bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two separate UTs, Pakistan had repeatedly used the statements of Congress leaders to further its argument.

Arnab Goswami has developed a penchant for taking potshots at the Lutyens cabal. Often, the Republic TV anchor makes snide remarks that lay the hypocrisy of the five-star journalists and ‘aman ki asha’ brigade bare. In a similar segment, during the course of the debate recently, Arnab took a potshot at NDTV, a channel whose promoters are being investigated for fraud and often toe the Pakistani line.

The debate on Republic TV Bharat was on the subject of Kashmir and how the youth of Kashmir joining the Indian Army by the thousands dampens the propaganda of Pakistan. The debate also touched upon various other subjects and aimed to bust the propaganda of Pakistan with regards to Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370.

During the course of the debate, a Pakistani panellist referred to the reportage by NDTV in order to help her spread the Pakistani agenda further and counter the position of India in Kashmir.

Peeved at the mention, Arnab Goswami in his inimitable style, told the Pakistani panellist that he was not aware of any Indian news channel by the name of NDTV, the emphasis being on the word ‘Indian’.

He further lost his cool and said that Pakistani panellists and Pakistan in general loves to quote NDTV and Rahul Gandhi to further their propaganda.

He asked the Pakistani panellist if Pakistan only likes NDTV and Rahul Gandhi considering their keep repeating their propaganda several times.

After the abrogation of Article 370 which resulted in the full and complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir without any riders of conditions, Pakistan has been repeatedly using the anti-India narrative peddled by the likes of NDTV and Rahul Gandhi to undermind the position of India.

For example, following the Pulwama terror attack, in an interview given to German media house Deutsche Welle (DW), NDTV’s Ravish Kumar had said that Indian TV channels are not reporting the conflict, but using the conflict to increase the prospect of the ruling party in the upcoming elections. And the Pakistani media had started to use this as a proof that India is pushing for a war with Pakistan. Ravish Kumar said that Indian media should concentrate on issues like unemployment, and not on Pakistan sponsored terrorism, because that may help BJP in the general elections. Indian media often act as activists, taking a side in various issues instead of plain reporting, but media should not take anti‑terror position as it may benefit BJP, he had stated.

After India’s decision to strip Article 370 and bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two separate UTs, Pakistan had repeatedly used the statements of Congress leaders to further its argument.

Pakistani analysts and strategists in their media debates had even named the Congress as a ‘sympathiser’ of Pakistan. Recently, Imran Khan had even copied Rahul Gandhi’s favourite lines against RSS and the BJP and had stated that the RSS and PM Modi are planning a Nazi-like imposition of Hindutva ideology in India.

It is notable here that barely 3 weeks ago, the Congress Working Committee had passed a resolution against the central government’s decision to strip article 370 and bifurcate the state. The CWC, chaired by Rahul Gandhi, had called the government’s decision unconstitutional and undemocratic. Recently, Pakistan had also used Rahul Gandhi’s statements in their representation to the UN to undermine India.
