If this had happened in a kingdom run by means of the bjp and if as opposed to Hindus those who’d been lynched, allow me to be very direct approximately it, in the event that they have been from any minority network, then might Naseeruddin shah, Aparna sen and Anurag Kashyap and all those plenties and the award wapsi gang, might they have long past berserk these days?”” – Arnab Goswami, a founding member of republic television
