Twitter erupts with memes and jokes after Arnab Goswami takes irony to new height with #TwitterQuitIndia

22

Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami has often faced criticism for his hypocrisy while facing allegations of pushing the BJP agenda from his TV channel. On Monday night, he took irony to new heights when he demanded Twitter to leave India by launching a hashtag for the same on Twitter! While demanding the microblogging site’s ouster from India, Goswami also flaunted how his #TwitetrQuitIndia was a top trend on Twitter as the Republic TV screen kept flashing the number of tweets the channel’s hashtag was generating on the social media platform.

Goswami was debating the Indian army’s denial of activist Shehla Rashid’s allegations of atrocities by men in uniform in Kashmir during the recent clampdown. The Republic TV founder demanded that Shehla Rashid be blocked from Twitter or the microblogging site quit India.

He said, “This country matters to Indias more than their blue ticks. Twitter is allowing Shehla Rashid to spread lies aimed at creating bloodshed, internal strife and conflict within our country. Twitter is answerable to me. Unverified lies, fake news spread by all these elements…Indians will live without Twitter or we will have our own social media platform. Like in China it has its own social media platforms. We don’t need an American social media platform.”

When Republic TV tweeted promoting its hashtag #TwitetrQuitIndia, users couldn’t stop reacting to the glaring irony of Republic TV’s editorial agenda.





 






Shehla Rashid has defended the tweets that she posted based on her conversations with local people. She wrote, “My reaction to the controversy: All of my tweets are based on conversations with people. My thread highlights the positive work of the administration too. Let the Army conduct a fair and impartial probe and I’m willing to share the details of the incidents mentioned with them.”

  1. All these microblogging sites are a big hypocrites they do not represent the common people’s views at all. They can’t deny their hidden agenda. I would not hesitate to leave these shit even for a moment. I have never gone and registered on these at all. So no regrets I will leave that just now.

  2. ARNAB YOU ARE SPREADING LIES & HATRED MIRE THAN TWITTER. INSTEAD OF ASKING TWITTER TO LEAVE WHY DON’T YOU CLOSE YOUR HYPOCRITE TV CHANNEL AND KEEP YOU A.. SHUT AND SIF AT HOME..

  3. Do people still react on nondities?? This guy is now begging for popularity!! And by spreading negative news he wants to grab the lime light!! India has already put him and his garbage TV in bin!! Don’t dig that stinking garbage anymore!!

    • I don’t know what world you live in, but Republic Network currently has one of the highest TRPs. Plus, if reporting a fake news agenda is what you call spreading agenda, man you gotta sort out your priorities.

  4. All traitors get a breeze of laughter in the matter. They can continue to be as stupid as ever. Just make a small comment about their traitor and shameless philosophy and they all cry like pigs.
    What Arnab said is absolutely true if some service seems to be Biased towards shameless bastards known as traitors or congressis, it needs to be condemned.

  5. Requires stern against the activist who talks to 10 or 100 or even 1000 persons and says that is what 7 million feel.. Arnab is doing his job and no agency should support any kind of anti national propaganda as this activist is doing.

  6. “Arnab faced criticism for his hypocrisy” what an idiotic line to start an article. Neutral media is fucked with that first line.

    This ISI operative Shehla should visit Tihar jail for 14 days custody.

    Arnab is the best and Brand Arnab himself is much bigger than this chutiyapa Janta reporter

  7. THIS MAN SAYS LIKE IT IS THE TRUTH . THIS ANTI NATIONALS QUESTIONING EVERYTHING HAPPENING GOOD IN THE COUNTRY ARE THE REAL TRAITORS . SHOW THE ACTUAL PROOF BEFORE CLAIMING THERE IS UNREST IN KASHMIR. .

  8. Every one has his/ her right to opinion. No one can ask or demand a ban for airing their personal views. While Arnab has his own personal view in the same way Rifat has her personal view. Both are well aware that they are living in a democracy .

  9. I am a non political person but I can see a clear conspiracy here by enemies within which are proxies of enemies outside.I wonder why other wise these people only write things which support Pakistani and their proxy’s narratives? When Kashmir was under the wrath of God the only savior who were there beside Kashmiris to save them were the Indian Armed Forces. Our Army does so many good things but these anty nationals don’t post that. They only post fake stories and pictures to further their muster’s political agenda. They alwas play victim’s card but just because Arnab shows other side of the coin they are after his life! Govt should check their income and expenses. Probably then only we will be able to know what motivate their malafide intentions against this country?These people are not true represention of Aam admi which love this country and chosen this govt. Our government is doing what is needed to be done to protect our interest and it haz full support of all patriotic Indians which has reflecteed in the ballot boxes. Just because Aam admi don’t voice their opinion on Twitter these handful of anty nationals having the party of their life time on Twitter. They want to create negative sentiment against India in the world stage. Every Indian need to rise to the occasion and protect our land from these parasites. Leave our India all of you traitors.

  10. Guys from Janta Ka Reporter, aren’t you doing the same thing like Shehla Rashid, just showing a few LW trolls and saying whole Twitter trolled Arnab… Before assuming that I’m going to tag you as “anti-national”, I have no interest, cause it’s just Hypocrisy that you’re showing.
    Thank you

  11. Arnab is doing the best as every India lover should do…nobody should support the anti national elements….a lot of agencies are working against India ….so we the people to avoid them carefully

  12. Pakistan has murdered varius Hindus,Sikhs,cristians,siyas,ahmedian since 70 years.In Kashmir there was Sufi Muslims and they are very good people.But in last seventy years various pakistanies have entered in last seventy years due to 370&35a.They are actually anti Hindu.They don’t changed their ideology.

  13. You guys wasting your time only and one nice day will be taken down with all the rest of the anti antinatonal gang. Indians have voted Modi there for he has all the Indians with him. Your era is gone take it with dignity. How silly is it, you yourself post on Twitter few comments and say Arunab was hacked by people. So silly and childish from you. But it makes fun to read your post at last it is entertaining.
