Islamophobia Row : Leading UAE media lambasts RSS Propagandists Arnab, ZeeNews, TimesNow, AajTak, ABPNews

[splco_heading size=”15″ align=”left” margin=”30″]RSS Propagandist Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami has been running from pillar to post seeking protection from imminent arrests in multiple criminal cases. [/splco_heading]
 
But, it seems the threat of arrests aren’t the only worry plaguing India’s most controversial TV anchor’s mind.
 
Goswami recently moved the Supreme Court seeking protection after an FIR was filed against him by the Mumbai Police.
 
The complainant accused Goswami of running a programme to demonise the Muslim community during his coverage on the assembly of migrant workers outside the Bandra railway station in Mumbai.
 
Goswami allegedly focussed on a mosque in the vicinity even though the place of worship for Muslims had zero relevance to the developing story.
 
Earlier, the Mumbai Police had grilled the controversial anchor for more than 12 hours for communalising the lynchings of two Hindu monks in Maharashtra’s Palghar.
Goswami has also faced considerable condemnation in the UAE, where the country’s prominent newspaper Gulf News demanded a ban on his Republic TV along with Zee News, Times Now, Aaj Tak and ABP News.
 
[splco_quote]Writing in its editorial, the widely circulated newspaper had written, “Hate propagated on live TV has a powerful impact especially when it comes from popular anchors. Authorities in the Gulf must take action against these channels, the preachers of hate, including Republic TV, Zee News, India TV, Aaj Tak, ABP and Times Now. [/splco_quote]

They must not be allowed to vitiate the social atmosphere of Gulf countries where tens of millions of diverse ethnicities and religious background work and live peacefully.”
 
The criticism by Gulf News followed a series of tweets posted by prominent Arab nationals against the alarming rise in Islamophobia in India.

In India, several entertainment celebrities including Kavita Kaushik, Mulk director Anubhav Sinha and Saif Ali Khan’s co-star Kubbra Sait had slammed Goswami for his shenanigans.
