Although Arnab Goswami is a world-class debater, he remains in the talk(s) on public twitter for his wordly fights with famous personalities. So, let’s take a look at the top five controversies concerning Arnab Goswami that take over the internet with fire:
Attack on Congress
In April 2020, TV editor Arnab broadcasted Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi as the main attackers. To begin with, during the mentioned time, he was attacked by goons while driving on the road. At 9: 00 pm on the next date, he made some controversial comments against the Congress party.
He mentioned, “Men on a motorcycle overtook my car and tried to identify who was driving. They then blocked the path of my car with their two-wheeler. The pillion rider hit the right side driver window several times. After realizing that the car windows were up, the pillion rider removed a liquid bottle from his pocket and threw liquid on the driver’s side of the car where I was sitting.”
He attacked Sonia Gandhi by saying that the combination of Hindus and orange color has become a sinful act in India. He also questioned his viewers about the silence of the public if a Maulavi has been murdered. Would Sonia Gandhi stay quiet as she is now? He ended his statement by saying that he is getting saints killed!
Not only this, but this issue caught fire when Nitin Raut, one of the Congress leaders, reported Mr. Goswami for provoking Hindus-Muslims riots in India via his spiced comments on his Channel.
After the Kerala Floods commentary
When it comes to landing on controversies, it seems like Arnab Goswami runs faster than light. After the Kerala floods, Arnab caused News Broadcasting Standards Authority, NBSA, to apologize to the viewers for his indecorous comments. During a debate on Kerala floods in January 2020, he commented, “I am going to show these crude, lewd hyenas/show the dirty faces of lewd, cheap, vulgar, sexist, pervert anti-Indian goons.” To begin with, Goswami has mainly attacked Pratishtha Singh in response to her statement, “You are lying. nobody is bothering you.”
Not only this, but public twitter also created a fuss about AG for his 30-seconds debate clip. In this clip, he was calling Singh(s) as the most shameless Indians.

Arnab Goswami’s Channel broadcasting fake news
Once again, Arnab made R.Public to the limelight by broadcasting a glimpse of fake news concerning the ransacking of property in Jammu and Kashmir. On June 24, 2020, Channel updated a headline saying “J&K: Ajay Pandit’s property ransacked in Anantnag.” not only this but the headline also mentioned that the mobs had damaged the house of Pandita in Anantnag, which is only 80 km(s) away from Jammu & Kashmir.
Without a doubt, according to the public, the Republic Bharat channel is giving a Muslims-pandits face to the fight. Later, when revealed on public twitter that the news is fake, the tweeters tagged police to file an FIR against R.Republic. Do you think it’s fair enough?
Why did Goswami quit Times Now?
When Arnab Goswami kicked his promising ongoing career in Times Now, the media was quite curious to know its reason. However, AG did not reveal anything. But, here’s a fun fact – Mr. Arnab is not allowed to enter the Times Now studio. To begin with, Arnab has given a lot of time and attention to the Times Now Studio, where he had attempted to broadcast unlimited news. However, on his last day now, the security authorities have stopped Mr. Goswami from entering the studio due to the defamation action.
In one of the interviews, Arnab mentioned, “I have declared my independence from the fake media, compromised media.” He believes in free speech in the media, but according to him, Times Now had more politics internally than externally.
Newslaundry attacked Republic TV
More often, Republic TV encounters several global attacks from other news channels and journalists. One such journalist named Kapil, an employee of Newslaundry connected a Pakistani reporter named Aarzu Kazmi. According to Arnab’s debates, Kazmi has been seen many times as a guest on discussions.
Mr. Kapil asked Kazmi the following questions:
“Hi, I am Kapil from India. I am a reporter in Newslaundry. I am doing a story where Indian Anchors like Arnab Goswami call you guys to Indian shows and spread hatred or bash you like anything without any purpose.” He then proceeded to ask, “So I want to know, do they pay you for that? And why do you even come when you know he will bash you off without any purpose? I mean, what makes you come on these shows? Can you please answer these questions for me?”
