Arnab Goswami is back with a rather uncomfortable bang for many. There was so much hype for Goswami’s new venture-Republic TV and the wait was finally over when we saw him smiling to the nation on 6th May at 10:00 am. Keeping up his promise, he made sure to say “Nation wants to know” in his opening statement itself. What was not expected was that he would have a line of exposes, waiting to be revealed. His primary unsuspecting victims being, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Shahabuddin and of course, Mr. Shashi Tharoor.
Let us first have a look at how the pseudo liberals and leftists are reacting to his comeback. Praise for him can never be expected by the intellectually enlightened citizens of this nation. However, to my awe, the principle fact that the so called ‘tolerants’ are shamelessly intolerant with regards to Arnab seems abject hypocrisy on their part. I have myself seen how they are allergic to seeing even one post on social media praising Arnab. These same tolerants then turn out to be the self-proclaimed guardians of what they call
Is it viable anymore in this Republic, that we tolerate the liberals to such an extent that they blatantly walk over our ideology? Are they so sophisticated and their intellect so robust that only they can have an opinion on what is right for this country?
We must not forget, the tolerants of India are usually the most intolerant. Also, the liberals usually think that since Arnab is bad for this nation, they almost religiously favor everyone having the same idea for him. However, that is not. People like me, and we constitute the majority, feel that Arnab represents us and truly speaks for us. The basic problem with many is they don’t like Arnab taking sides. However, is remaining neutral and being a fence-sitter an option in India?
Moreover, people who say Arnab is inclined towards the BJP are the most delirious people this country has. To such people I would suggest, go to YouTube and simply type: ‘Arnab debate against BJP’ and find the treasure they’ve been looking for. Meanwhile, Subramaniam Swamy, of the BJP did all he could to stall the launch of Republic. The liberals won’t tell you all this, but we will.
Coming now to the Republic TV ’s exposes that targeted Lalu, Shahabuddin and Shashi Tharoor.
Speaking of Bihar, there is no negating the fact that Jungle Raj has, does and will exist in the state until it gets a government which does not support keeping bonhomie with gundas, criminals, etc. The future of the state is certainly bleak, if leaders like Lalu and his kind continue to remain in power.
What needs to be duly appreciated is that Republic TV, on its first day exposed the neta-gunda nexus of the state. But beware; the liberals have a problem yet again. They say every state faces the same, to them I say, wait and watch. Every big and corrupt person who indulges in such corrupt practices shall be exposed by Republic, irrespective of his/her political inclinations.
We must commend the bravery of the field reporters of Republic TV, who have exposed the Lalu reality without fear and bondage. They very well know that their life as a whole is in danger, but they have shown to India what ‘true journalism’ is. It proves that unlike the lutyen’s media, Republic does not compromise on journalistic ethics.
What also needs to be said is that it is quite probable that other media groups too had the information of the prevalent jungle raj in Bihar. But did they have the guts to expose the parties’ involved? The answer is NO. They very boldly came out and said “Oh everyone knows the condition of Bihar” and that there is nothing new about the expose by Republic TV. But if these editors could possibly have 10% of the courage Arnab and his teams have, they would be doing service to the nation. As of now, they are evidently doing a disservice to India. How the entire media turned a blind eye to the Republic TV expose clearly shows what can be expected of their compromised bunch of high profile editors. It is a wakeup call for them, if they don’t mend their ways, they are very likely to lose whatever little viewership they are left with.
Shashi Tharoor on the other hand must lost his good-night’s sleep ever since the #SunandaMurderTapes were out.
The tapes are a complete contradiction to the testimony given by Shashi Tharoor and his man-Friday, Narayanan. The questions which arise after the tapes are revealed are completely sensible and I do not see why the questions asked by Arnab must be questioned by the liberals. These are very valid questions, some of which include: Did Shashi Tharoor come back to the Leela hotel, which is proved by the tapes but contradicted by his testimony which says he was present in the AICC session throughout the day of the murder?
If Sunanda died of an Alprax overdose, what explains the 50 marks of violence on her body which include bite and injection marks? If in the tapes Naraynan says that Tharoor sent her to take clothes for Sunanda, then why does he in the testimony say that it was Sunanda herself who had sent him? In the tapes, Naraynan says that Sunanda didn’t wake up for 12 hours and was sleeping without motion, how is it then possible that she sent him to take clothes? And since she was motionless, how is it that she suddenly went to room 345? It is not possible that Naraynan has lied on the tapes, since it was a description of the occurring events which he was describing. Hence, it is surely in the testimony that both Shashi Tharoor and Naraynan have lied. A separate case needs to be filed for misleading the investigators and lying under oath. The examination of the tapes is a welcome step by Delhi Police.
Dr. Sudhir Gupta, head of forensic studies, AIIMS came out and revealed on Republic TV that he was pressurized by the then Union Minister of Health, Ghulam Nabi Azaad to tamper with the reports and state that the death was due to natural reasons. This shows that the murder of Sunanda Pushkar has much more to it, than meets the eye.
The reaction of Tharoor to the tapes is simply laughable. His tweet as a whole is a farce according to me. Since he doesn’t know what to do immediately after his dirty plot is out in public domain, he very easily frames a statement which consists of words barely 5% of Indians can understand. If he was planning a cover-up, then it surely ended in vain, thanks to his aristocratic tweet. Tharoor then tries the last dirty trick he can, and decides to unleash Congress goons on Republic TV reporters. The man, who I did respect, suddenly showed his neta behavior. After all, he is a politician.
Tharoor also then, like all liberals and intellectuals began with his speech of how Arnab and his team know no journalistic ethics. That’s what everyone does when faced with tough questions.
As closing comments, let me first congratulate the entire Republic TV team for the bravery, fearlessness and authenticity which they have exposed the politicians till now and let me also say to the liberals, Arnab Goswami is a man who can single-handedly shake up the entire political setup of this country.
We must not always be so politically correct that we ignore the facts put out to us. We must remember Arnab represents the true journalist. He does not behave like an aristocratic editor of BBC and CNN. He shouts, because that is what is best to do to be heard in this nation.
And for Shashi Tharoor, I would say this: “You are an unprincipled murderer masquerading as an enlightened politician of a corrupt and bigoted party.”
