"Oh, you useless people, Beggars. Oh Beggars, oh beggars. We will douse you with 1.25 kg, 0.75 kg, with 2 inches. Pok, PoK, we are coming to the PoK. We are coming to Gilgit-Baltistan, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We are coming to come... be ready. People in your country are shivering with fear that the Indian army may come. We will barge inside your home in Balochistan, in Karachi, in Rawalpindi, and kill you. From Lahore, from Karachi to Gilgit-Baltistan when we will have control"

The anchor of the program is notorious for mindless talks against Pakistan, getting out of control as he will attack Pakistan by coming out of the TV Screen. His talks are based upon lies and fabricated facts. that is why he is the blue-eyed boy for Modi and Hindu extremists. On 04 November 2020, he was arrested for forcing his studio architect Anvay Naik in Mumbai. Studio architect before attempting suicide has left a written letter blaming Goswami for his suicide that Goswami and his channel are denying to pay my 455 million. he further wrote that he has indebted due to the studio and people are asking for repayment, he has no way left except to attempt suicide. The widow of the studio architect posted his letter on social media and started a campaign. When police arrested Goswami, RSS and other Hindu extremists started protesting against Police. Modi's Ministers also joined the protests, Modi interfered and the Indian court has to release him in haste with full protocol making a joke of the Indian Judicial system. Goswami is one of his Talkshows at Republic Bharat declared all Pakistanis as terrorists. Addressing his guest especially General Sina he said, "You are dealing with a terrorist entity. Their scientists, doctors, leaders, politicians all are terrorists. Even their sports people, every child is a terrorist over there".

During his conversation, he addressed Pakistani as "Paki" which considered abuse by Pakistanis living in the West. Said program was telecasted thrice in 24 hours on 06 September 2019. British Telecom Authority OFCOM took notice of the telecast without any complaint and issued notice to Worldview Media Network who issued a license to Republic TV. They were of the view that Goswami has used hateful speech against Pakistanis in his programs which may enthreat the lives of the Pakistanis. Moreover, such programs may instigate riots among Pakistani and Indians living in the UK.
After action began against Republic TV in the UK, India tried to control the situation through her Foreign Ministry. Republic TV telecasted apology 280 times for telecasting hatred program against Pakistan and Pakistanis without any demand. This was rejected by the British Telecom Authority saying that apology has nothing to do with law and rules & regulations.

In contrast to this Pakistani media remained indifferent to the whole episode and focused on power games between Pakistani politicians. Except for BOL TV, not a single media outlet condemned Goswami for his anti-Pakistan propaganda. No one felt any need to give coverage to the fine on the Indian channel, no one felt any need to give coverage to the actions taken against the Indian TV Channel from 06 September 2019 up till now. If this is the leniency of Pakistani media to India then why the same leniency is not shown while telecasting statements of few pro-Indian politicians against the Pakistan Army???
