Arnab Goswami Gets Slammed Online After He Called Sachin Tendulkar Anti National On Live TV

For Arnab Goswami, the concept of nationalism is pretty simple. The other party must agree with his opinion in order for him or her to be a “nationalist.”

Sadly, Mr. Goswami’s ideas of nationalism are convoluted to the extent where he believes that expressing a personal opinion on a matter of national significance can be deemed anti national just because someone failed to agree with his notion of what a nationalist or desh bhakt should be like.

Arnab Goswami had invited Sachin Tendulkar on his show, and insulted the God of Cricket by calling him an anti national. And this is just because Sachin stated that he felt India should not withdraw from the match against Pakistan in World Cup 2019.

In the aftermath of the Pulwama tragedy, Sachin, being the epitome of class that he is, had tweeted saying that India had always defeated Pakistan at the World Cup and that he would hate to give up two points to Pakistan. He also added that country comes first for him, and that he would stand by whatever decision the Indian government took.

However, this was clearly against Arnab Goswami’s principles, who sees the world in black and white. According to him, after the Pulwama incident, Indians need to take a clear stand in order to show how patriotic they really are.

Based on what he says, the only way one can even remotely call himself or herself a nationalist is by boycotting Pakistan altogether. Clearly, the logic behind Sachin’s tweet escaped him.

He used the hashtag #ShameOnAntiNationals to humiliate Sachin Tendulkar on national television. He said that he does not believe in gods and that Sachin was wrong.

He said on the show, “Sachin Tendulkar, if he has any sense, he should realise that he should be the first person to say that don’t play with Pakistan.”

He also said that he does not really care about the points that India would be losing out on, but that he wanted revenge for the martyrs who had given up their lives.

However, this comment has enraged Indians, including the other people who were present during the debate. Mr. Sudheendra Kulkarni was forced to walk out:

This is how people reacted to the incident:

So, tell us. What is nationalism to you?
