Prime Time Comedy Show: Netizens Ridicule Indian, Pakistani Panelists 'Brandishing Weapons' on TV

New Delhi (Sputnik): While heated verbal attacks are routine in any news channel debate these days, an Indian station became the target of mockery after pundits started threatening each other with weapons during a live show.

Indian news channel Republic TV, notorious for its high-decibel debates,  saw pundits from India and Pakistan threaten each other by brandishing a toy missile and arrow during a discussion.

The panelists from India and Pakistan were on the news channel to discuss the Indian Army’s recent operation to foil a suicide car bombing in Kashmir. The panelists were Maninderjeet Singh Bitta, chairman of the All-India Anti-Terrorist Front, and Engineer Iftikhar Chaudhry, Deputy Secretary Information for Pakistan’s ruling party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

The video snippets from the debate have become a viral sensation on Twitter with netizens calling it a “circus”, and a “cartoon channel”. 

Others called out the TV channel for stooping to a ‘low level of journalism' in a quest for TRP (target rating points) while pointing out the coincidence of both pundits bringing fake weapons to the studio.

The channel was also trolled for another one of its debates in which its anchor Arnab Goswami blamed Pakistan and Imran Khan for a locust attack in India.
