We’ve all known Arnab Goswami for his flamboyant way of presenting news and hosting his often controversial talk show, The Newshour, a live debate on various issues and trending topics, and he’s back in the news with yet another headline.
In a recent show, several esteemed personalities were invited as panelists to discuss and debate on the topic of ‘Triple Talaq’, when in the middle of the debate, one of the panelists, retired ACP Shamsher Khan Pathan, made an insensitive and insulting joke about how men are already tolerating women at home. In fact, he further elaborated in a rather infuriating way that if women want, they can go for triple talaq and see what happens next. This casual attitude definitely angered Arnab and he asked Mr. Pathan to leave the show immediately. Despite of Mr. Pathan’s background, Arnab did not bow down, neither did he change his stand and eventually an angry Mr. Pathan, threw the mike and had to leave the show.
This act was of sheer bravery and it should be appreciated by all as how one man could not tolerate the insult of women by another. And that too on the national television. Arnab did not think of the repercussions that the same could have on his channel or the talk show but bravely took a stand for what was correct and ethical.
No matter how much we hate him, detest his prime-time debate show or his constant ranting, one thing that most of us know by now is that Arnab Goswami is a no nonsense person. He might sound like a bully but he is definitely not the one to take bullshit from anyone irrespective of their status or position and he proved this point in a very brave manner.
