[Fake]: Was Arnab Goswami attacked while covering Gujarat Riots?
Arnab Goswami, the editor of Republic, in a speech recently revealed that while covering the Gujarat riots in 2002, he was attacked by a mob near the state chief minister’s residence along with his team members. However his erstwhile colleague, Rajdeep Sardesai exposed him on Twitter through a series of tweets.
In fact, Rajdeep Sardesai and his TV crew had been attacked in Gandhinagar, an incident which was also described in his book ‘2014: The Election That Changed India’.
Later the video where Arnab made the claims was removed from Youtube. However, it has been posted by many other users and is available on Youtube. Many other journalists who had covered the Gujarat riots like Nalin Mehta and Sanjeev Singh also tweeted about the lie of Arnab Goswami.
