Comedy artist Munawar Faruqui accused of poking fun at Hindu gods. The show was organized in Indore.
Stand up comedian, Munawar Faruqui and four other people have been arrested for creating fun and remarking negatively over Hindu deities in his show.
Faruqui along with Edwin Anthony, Prakhar Vyas, Priyam Vyas, and Nalin Yadav was beaten up by Hindutva folks. Meanwhile, Eklavya Singh Gaur, son of local BJP MLA Malini Laxman Singh Gaur, filed an FIR against them on Saturday.
The incident happened near 56 Dukan area in Indore and the accused were taken to Tukoganj police station where, their bail pleas have been rejected.
The members are booked under sections 295-A (outraging religious feelings), 269 (unlawful or negligent act likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life), specifically.
However, the citizens are in outrage and pointing out the lacunae in the viewpoint and administration.
A Twitter user writes “Where is bjp it cell who support “Charlie Hebdo” for their shameless comment on Prophet Muhammad, are niw questioning and abusing #MunawarFaruqui”.
He mentioned such people as “hypocrite bhakts”.
It appears every single person who watches comedy is in anger because of the religious cum hilarious issue.
Supporting the comedian, a tweet read “A comedian is forced to justify his joke about the majority by pointing out that he makes jokes on minorities too. Every major religion has trivialised itself by contradicting in practice what scriptures say in theory – if you can’t see that, the joke’s on you. #MunawarFaruqui”.
Meanwhile, no action has been taken against those who hit them. Some individual feels he was beaten as he was Muslim.
A user tweeted “Muslim Comedian #MunawarFaruqui was beaten To pulp by Hinduvta mob during a Show in India, He has been beaten for being a Muslim, He has been arrested & jailed in Tukoganj Police station in Indore, No action against those who attacked him.”
Moreover, a section is claiming no religious jokes were enacted by him.
Kaushik Raj cited “This guy was in the audience. He says #MunawarFaruqui didn’t perform any religious jokes and audience including him, was beaten too.”
Another tweet said “If speaking the reality can be so outrageous then live with your lies. He made a mistake and apologized for it for how long will you harass him?”.
