Here’s Why Our ‘Favorite Channel’ Republic Bharat Was Fined £20,000 By UK Communications Regulator

The Republic Bharat's show, Poochta Hai Bharat has fined £20,000 By UK Communications Regulator for indulging in 'HATE SPEECH' Isbar Poochna Mehenga Padh Gaya!

The Office of Communications, commonly known as Ofcom has levied a fine of £20,000 on Worldview Media Network Limited which broadcasts Arnab Goswami’s Republic Bharat channel in the UK.

In other words, the Republic Bharat’s show, Poochta Hai Bharat, was found spreading ‘Hate speech’ in its episode aired on September 6, 2019.

OfCom stated in its order that the program ‘contained un-contextualized hate speech and that this content was potentially highly offensive’.

The episode was all about Pakistan and Arnab’s anti-muslim agendas. So it was quite obvious that statements by guests and Arnab himself were clearly stating Pakistan and its citizens as terrorists or terrorist nations. Ofcom also directed Republic Bharat to air their findings on the channel.

And like always, after the news went viral, people took to social media to comment on Ofcom’s decision:

Arnab Goswami is yet to give an official statement on the ‘Hate Speech’ penalty.
