Islamabad. After not getting a favorable response from United Nations over Kahsmir issue, Pakistan is now trying to seek UN’s intervention into another issue that has been bothering them for past few years i.e. Arnab Issue.
In its bid to internationalize the issue, Pakistan has sent a letter to UN secretary Ban Ki Moon, blaming ace news anchor Arnab Goswami for current escalations in vocal violence on his show Newshour which have only intensified of late.
“During the period of Oct 1-10, 2014, 48 verbal violations were reported inside Times Now studios, which resulted in ruptured ear drums and vocal cord paralysis of at least 18 Pakistani nationals,” letter signed by Sartaz Aziz, Nawaz Sahrif’s security adviser, read.
The Pakistan envoy maintains that utmost restraint was observed by Pakistanis on the show despite repeated provocations by Arnab, but reminded India that even it was equipped with people like Zaid Hamid and is thus fully capable of responding to provocations.
Not reading much into the snub already received over ‘Kashmir issue’ by UN, Pakistan is further confident that UN will not ignore this much graver issue than Kashmir.
“Kashmir issue we may still be able to solve through a dialogue but Arnab’s dialogues are becoming increasingly difficult to combat,” Sartaz Aziz told Faking News.
“I am sure UN too would have got first ear hand experience of it while Mr Arnab was in Manhattan for few days and was conducting his show from there,” he added, “Hence we are sure they would look into it and not ignore this plea of ours.”
According to sources, Pakistan also received unsolicited support of some Indians named Sanjay Jha, Tehseen Poonawala, N Srinivasan and few MLAs from UP, Karnataka and Goa.
Meanwhile Pakistani envoy is ready to approach Nirmal Baba to get a solution to both Kashmir and Arnab issue in case it gets snubbed by UN again.
