Things have gotten way out of hand in the war against Pak terrorists. We have the usual suspects in the media whose hearts don’t stop bleeding for the rogue state. They want relations with Pak at all costs. It doesn’t matter how many of our Jawans or civilians get killed. Add to that the treacherous lot of Bollywood who are hell-bent on Islamising Bollywood in some form or the other. It has come to a stage that anyone speaking up against Pak-terror would now be a target for the terrorists. Arnab Goswami of Timesnow may be hyper at most times but his heart is in the right place when it comes to India. His strong takes against Pakistan and terrorist-supporting media would have to come with a price.
Timesnow enjoys a very large lead over other English channels like NDTV, CNN18 and IndiaToday. What is alarming is that the ones targeting Arnab and making him a terror-target are none other than his own peers in the media. The ugliest comments have been made about him from people like Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose and others like Shekhar Gupta. This is not stopping at merely articles and tweets in India but has now taken a dangerous turn where Barkha Dutt and Rajdeep have taken their bitterness right across the world and to even Pak TV channels. Watch these two videos:
Barkha ranting at Brown University
Barkha calls it “Hashtag hysteria” and Rajdeep implicitly refers to Timesnow as a War-room. Both behaving like disgruntled naxals. Such fuelling of hatred against an Indian channel and anchor in foreign media and outlets is shameful to say the least. Barkha doesn’t even need a hashtag to be hysterical at all times. The only way to describe her redundant journalism is “mindless hysteria”. And Rajdeep, who has been reduced to a quiz-joker, is simply unable to cope with his failures and his fall in the public eye. Both these discredited and fallen people are posing a threat to those in Indian media who hold opposing views.
It is now being reported that Arnab will get Y category security with 20 guards after receiving threats from Pak terrorists. It is shameful that Barkha and Rajdeep, in particular, have unwittingly fuelled hatred for a patriotic Indian. Whether they agree with Arnab or not, to portray him as a war-mongering villain on Pak TV or with foreign audiences is simply not done. These crass rants of discredited journalists like Rajdeep and Barkha are now posing serious threats to Indian society itself. Long back I had written “Terror Support Services” for the very fact that most of the Indian media actually nurtures and fuels terrorism by their bogus and unwarranted defence of Pakistan and endless rants about peace and dialogue no matter what. It doesn’t come as any shock or surprise to me that Arnab is now facing threats as I had estimated in September that the rants of Barkha, Rajdeep, Sagarika and others in the media will provoke and fuel dangers to Arnab:
The GOI now needs to observe those in the media spreading poison in India that fuels terror threats to public figures. I have little doubts that the so called peace-mongers in media and elsewhere (like Bollywood) have a lot in stake in Pakistan to be behaving like anti-nationals posing a threat to their own citizens. Should something happen to Arnab or should an attack on him happen we know who exactly are responsible.
