‘Dangerous’ Arnab Goswami accused of inciting violence in Kashmir, called anti-Hindu by filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri


Filmmaker and known supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vivek Agnihotri, has lashed out at Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami accusing him of inciting violence in Jammu and Kashmir. Terming Goswami dangerous to both Indian journalism and every single Indian, Agnihotri launched a tirade against fellow supporter of PM Modi.

Vivek Agnihotri wrote, “I have a feeling all the extraordinary efforts of @narendramodi to establish peace & harmony in #Kashmir will be countered by irresponsible News Channel owners like Arnab Goswami inciting violence. It’s not just the worst in Indian journalism but dangerous for all of us.”

He didn’t stop here. Agnihotri warned flag-bearers of right-wing politics in India to realise that Goswami was anti-Hindu. He wrote, “If RW & Modi supporters like him because he bashes opponents, then pl remember Arnab was the first one to stand against Hindus in Sabrimala. He destroyed the life of a young Delhi boy by falsely accusing him. Rohtak Sisters? And that false attack on Sushma ji? What’s bad is bad.”

Goswami launched Republic TV with the help of BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar in 2017. Since then he’s always faced criticism for not questioning the policies of the central government. In his previous role as the editor-in-chief of Times Now TV channel, Goswami had launched a sustained attack against Sushma Swaraj for her alleged links with Lalit Modi, who’s now settled in London.

Vivek Agnihotri, for his part, has shifted his loyalties in favour of the BJP after Modi became India’s prime minister in 2014. Such a stunning attack against Goswami is surprising given that both belong to the same right-wing camp and the filmmaker had flaunted his meeting with the Republic TV founder last year, when he gifted him a copy of his book, Urban Naxal.
