Bengaluru (Karnataka) – The Management of the Good Shepherd Auditorium where anti—Hindu comedian artist Munawar Faruqui was going to perform, announced that Munawar’s programme was being cancelled. Munawar Faruqui is a stand-up comedian. Police from the Ashoknagar Police Station gave a letter to the organisers of this programme stating that, based on his past programmes, this programme might pose a threat to the law and order, as Munawar hurts the sentiments of Hindus. Crime has been registered against him in Madhya Pradesh (MP) and presently he has been released on bail.
In an ideal world, Munawar Faruqui should be free to crack tasteless jokes on Sita or those killed in Godhra. But in India, where Satanic Verses is banned, Kamlesh Tiwari beheaded for mocking Mohammed, right to offend won’t be one-way. There’ll be a cost. pic.twitter.com/ZDAR4M5bEP

(The intention underlying display of this Twitter is not to hurt religious sentiments of Hindus, but make them comprehend the denigration – Editor.)
Earlier also officers had called back their permission to his programme honouring Hindu sentiments in Gujarat and Mumbai. Munawar Faruqui’s ‘Dongari to nowhere’ programme was organised in Good Shepherd Auditorium.
