Republic TV editor Arnab Goswami, who has been embroiled in controversy for the past few days, is once again in trouble. Republic TV’s Hindi channel, Republic Bharat, has been fined £ 20,000 by the British Broadcasting Regulatory Authority (Regulatory Ofcom, which monitors the media in the UK). The TV channel has been accused of violating the Hate Speech Rules in the TV debate.
On Tuesday, the Office of Communications, or Offcom World Media Network Limited, issued an order stating that the “Puchhta Hey Bharat” program on September 7, 2019 was seen giving insulting remarks.
The British Broadcasting Regulatory Authority said in a statement that the “Puchhta Hey Bharat” program contained statements that included “hate speech” against Pakistanis. It contained insulting remarks against the Pakistani people. The order states that insulting remarks were made against Pakistanis on the basis of nationality. The statement added that the statement could hurt anyone’s feelings and that it was a crime in the offing. The regulator’s channel has issued new guidelines. According to the new guidelines, no new programs have been ordered.
