New Delhi: An ex-Indian Navy lieutenant Gokul Chandran, who is also a political analyst has left the users of the Indian side of social media in splits after he exchanged a slightly heated conversation with news anchor Navika Kumar during a panel discussion.
At a Times Now debate on Monday evening, news anchor Navika Kumar who usually gets the best of her guests on the panel, and overpowers them to react to her ways, wouldn’t have expected the tables to take a turn this once.
Here’s what happened
Chandran, while speaking about Shudras, told Navika, “Aryans aren’t just a caste, and were instead invaders historically”.
His statement raged off Kumar as she responded him by asking, “Oh, so we are invaders? With your permission, can we live in this country, sir? Since you are the boss and the owner of this country, can we live in this country?”
“No, you cannot,” replied Chandran with a straight face.
“So, you are saying I must go”, a surprised Navika asked him, to which he responded with a “yes”.
As she further asked him, “Where do I go?” with an angry tone, Chandran sarcastically replied, “wherever you want”.
What wrong did I say? 😁 pic.twitter.com/afV40dGVsQ

Navika Kumar wanted to prove she was an Arya. Gokul Chandran said, according to Ambedkar, the so-called Aryas who Invaded India were Shudras.
