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.
