In the video Kher says, “I want to thank you for exposing ‘pseudo intellectuals’ and ‘pseudo liberals’ for whom it is important to shed tears for a terrorist killed than shedding tears for a fauji of Indian Army killed.

After Barkah Dutt post slamming Arnab Goswami went viral, Times Now Editor-in-Chief has found support from Anupam Kher. Kher has posted a video message from Adelaide, Australia on Twitter praising Goswami. In the video Kher says, “I want to thank you for exposing ‘pseudo intellectuals’ and ‘pseudo liberals’ for whom it is important to shed tears for a terrorist killed than shedding tears for a fauji of Indian Army killed. I want to thank you for raising this issue”. On Wednesday, in a Facebook post, Barkha Dutt slammed Arnab Goswami for the ‘Kargil Diwas’ debate on Tuesday. She wrote that she is ashamed to be from the same industry as him. This is the message that Kher gives in the video:

“This is an open message for Arnab Goswami, I have been watching your snippets on Times Now here in AdeLaide, Australia and I want to say thank you to you.I want to thank you on behalf of million of Indians for whom India comes first. I want to thank you for exposing ‘pseudo intellectuals’ and ‘pseudo liberals’ for whom it is important to shed tears for a terrorist killed than shedding tears for a fauji of Indian Army killed. I want to thank you for raising this issue and I want to thank you for raising this on a national platform. Don’t get bogged down by these people. I am sure you are a strong man and you will not bet bogged down by such people but they have a tendency of immediately attacking you, the moment you talk about nation. It is fashionable to attack a person who talks about deshbhakti, who talks about tiranga, who talks about jana gana man but remember one thing, millions of Indians are with you. they have to be with you because for all of us India is NO.1 and then rest of the world. Thank you so much once again. Jai ho, Jai Hind and Bharat Mata ki Jai!” 

“Imagine, a journalist actually exhorts the government to shut down sections of the media, misrepresents them as ISI agents and terror sympathisers, calls for them to be tried and acted against. And our fraternity remains locked into politically correct and timid silence,” wrote the NDTV journalist.

    I wrote this response to Barkha's article in NDTV. It was not published. I dont think she even understand what McCarthyism means, maybe just thinks its cool to say so....uhhhh"Barkha, the problem is not a question of freedom of expression. But it is the spin that you give to stories and people see it through. Lets take your program today "Rajnath Singh Heads To Islamabad:Modi Government Turns 'Dove' On stan?. What you did in this discussion is an example of spins you give to stories and often distorting reality: In the session you used the issue of burhan wani, kashmir dispute, peace talks with stan and your spat with another anchor, all into a khicdi and used them to question the peace talks that you keep touting otherwise. But when BJP does something like this, it ends up confusing you because you expect them to do it otherwise. So what you did is that you imposed your own confusion (mostly very personal and petty) as that of BJPs and it supporters with disgust. It is time you understand the complexity of indians and stop dividing them into binaries (56 inch or doves, really?). Viewers are seeing it now due to greater accessibility and calling it what is. Deal with it and fight it out and not act as a cry baby".

        Have been watching Times Now for quite some time specially the 9pm debates.Yesterday 07th Nov we had a debate with Rahul hi who they say will lead a United Front 2019. Do we require to discuss 2019 at this moment , when the national capital is facing pollution problems, or terrorist strikes in Kashmir.... we need immediate attention to some of these problems, from most of the debates Arnab seems to me a Modi-BJP supporter and and bringing to debate the 2019 elections only shows how scared the BJP may be of a United Front...... Arnab why are you not asking the CM of Kashmir to resign...why are you quiet, if it was the Congress govt, you would have blown your trumpet loud....Grow up sir..... dont support any party as they will not be in power forever and then you will not know what to do.

                Main problem in India and with Indians is that we never be united when it is required. At present entire World is suffering threat by terrorist in the name of religion. stan is taking full advantage in the Name of Kashmir.It is true that after America it is India who has suffered a lot and so many times we are attacked by stan affiliated terrorists. but it is really shameful that always we have taken the issue through a different route mainly by politicians because they think that they are safe but they are not. Still we have time to be united and fight against the illicit radical groups.

                  Who are you to thank Arnab Goswami on behalf of millions of people. Arnab Goswami is the most hated anchor and great "chamcha" of the present Govt. He is very fond of his vocal cord. I started feeling disgusted by his partisan stand while anchoring and have stopped watching Times Now altogether. Now you have joined the bandwagon of "chamchagiri" which you have been desperately doing to get rewarded. But alas you failed. I go with Barkha Dutt entirely in this discussion. Democracy is safe only under free and fair media - which is considered the fourth pillar of democracy. Under persons like Arnab Goswami democracy is not safe.

                      After her coverage of kargil war for NDTV, Barkhadutt has attained the prominence of what she is today. I would request her to revisit her coverage of that period and decide for herself how far her present stand is justified?

                        It is clear you did not watch the programme on TV. See if you can access the video on the Internet , and do all of us a favour by watching it and listening to it.

                              Its plain and simple. Barkha ripped you apart in a television debate where you stoop really low to make personal attack on a fellow panelist. You took this opportunity to take a revenge. Increasingly you are turning more like the (villain) characters you have been playing on the movies. I am sure you are aspiring for a coveted govt. post. Shame on you.

                                  Arnab is right-wing; NDTV is left-wing period. Arnab is favored by this govt; Barkha by the previous, period. But Arnab calling on the govt to lock up his fellow journalists is an act of shame. He is a shame on the fraternity.

                                          Barkha Dutt is different. She's anti-India. After her role in corporate lobbying exposed by Radia tapes, she has no business being in this profession.

                                            She hurt Indian interests even during the Kargil war. At least on three occasions she got a whiff of our Army's plans and telecast them. intelligence agencies picked it up and alerted the intruders. Precious Indian lives were lost as a result. This woman did it gain during Mumbai attacks. The terrorists had access to TV in Taj and that's how we lost Sandeep Unnikrishnan.
