‘Arnab Goswami admitted in mental asylum’ video by Pakistani TV anchor goes viral


Republic TV’s Arnab Goswami is one TV anchor, who has run an endless campaign urging India to attack Pakistan in the wake of 14 February Pulwama terror attack that killed 45 CRPF soldiers. Goswami’s theatrics came under heavy criticism from many in India, while TV channels in Pakistan too targeted him by calling him a war-monger. While Pakistan’s decision to release the Indian Air Force officer Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman may have averted the prospects of war between India and Pakistan, Goswami has continued to feature on Pakistani TV channels, for all the wrong reasons.

The latest in the series of a viral video is of a Pakistani TV anchor mimicking Goswami’s histrionics. Faisal Qureshi of Pakistan’s Public TV recently did a spoof video by playing an old broadcast by Goswami on Times Now, where he was previously employed, while broadcasting a story on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. In the said broadcast, Goswami, in his inimitable style, had flaunted the ‘final proof’ of Ibrahim living in Karachi. To support his ‘final proof,’ Goswami had broadcast a purported phone conversation with the underworld don’s wife, Mahjabeen Shaikh. The short audio clip had the Times Now reporter ask the female voice if she was the wife of Dawood Ibrahim. In response, the woman in the audio clip had replied, “Yes, he’s sleeping.”

Using the old Times Now broadcast, Public TV’s Faisal Qureshi took out a mobile phone during the live broadcast and seemed to dial a number and spoke to a woman, who he claimed to be the wife of Republic TV’s founder. The woman, who was addressed by Qureshi as the ‘begum’ of Goswami, said that her ‘husband’ has had to be admitted to a mental asylum. When asked why he had to be sent to a mental asylum, the woman said, “Did you not see his awkward behaviour on his channel recently. He has lost his mental balance.”

Using the content of his phone conversation with the woman, Qureshi began to mimic Goswami and claim; “This is breaking news. Arnab Goswami has been admitted to a mental asylum. His wife has confirmed. We have now undeniable evidence that Arnab Goswami is mad.”

The video of Qureshi mimicking Goswami has now gone viral on social media.

Goswami had founded Republic TV with the help of BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar in 2017 after he was sacked from Times Now. Chandrasekhar is a member of the parliamentary committee on defence.
