Social media users in India and Pakistan react to the controversial Whatsapp chat leaks of Indian firebrand anchor Arnab Goswami suggesting he was in full know about New Delhi’s plan to strike Balakot in February 2019.
The internet users in Pakistan are reacting to the revelations. Several people believe that Goswami knowing about the attack on Pakistan implies that the Indian government had allegedly set ground to assault Pakistan. Also, that PM Narendra Modi had planned Pulwama attack to falsely attack Pakistan. Others say it was a ploy set by PM Modi to get re-elected.
So #ArnabGoswami knew about Pulwama and Balakot in advance. Such an information could come only from R&AW.

🔹China intrusion & lies
All above incidents are enough to charge & prosecute the traitor Prime Minister & criminal Home Minister.— Bhavika ✋ (@BhavikaKapoor5) January 16, 2021
Observers and commentators in Pakistan believe that Whatsapp reveals how PM Modi has bluffed the Indian nation and also reflects the insensitivity of the Indian government and anchorperson for using a national tragedy for gaining ratings and publicity.
Not only in Pakistan, but there has been a strong backlash in India too. The Indian users have also voiced ire on Prime Minister Narendra Modi risking national security while discussing confidential issues with Arnab Goswami for the sake of increasing his channel’s TRP.
Indian firebrand anchor, Arnab Goswami, who knew about the Indian government’s plans to strike Balakot in Pakistan, reveals the shocking Whatsapp chat leaks.
‘Bigger than a normal strike’-this is what Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV had said to Chief Executive Officer of the Broadcast Audience Research Council, Partho Dasgupta, in an alleged Whatsapp chat dated February 23rd, 2019, three days before, strike on Balakot on February 26th.
#ArnabGoswami, by all accounts, had prior information about the Balakot airstrikes, 3 days before it happened. The BJP govt has apparently been communicating crucial National Security decisions to Arnab so that he can prepare in advance to boost his channel's TRPs. Despicable!— Shama Mohamed (@drshamamohd) January 16, 2021
