Hindu Janajagriti Samiti files police complaint against comedian Vir Das; deets inside
Hindu Janajagriti Samiti not long ago registered a police complaint against the comedian for his alleged derogatory remarks and demanded cancellation of his stand-up comedy show scheduled to be held in Bengaluru on November 10 as his shows "hurt religious sentiments of Hindus and show India in a bad light to the world”
In a complaint, the Samiti leaders said that they had information that Vir Das, an Indian American comedian, is holding a show at Chowdiah Memorial Hall in Malleshwaram, Bengaluru.
They stated that earlier he had made derogatory remarks against women, our Prime Minister, and India at John F Kennedy Center in Washington DC, America, and defamed the country.
"The comedian had said that in India, we worship women during the day and rape them at night during the performance," they claimed while adding that a case was also registered by the Mumbai Police in this regard. It is a serious offence under the Indian Penal Code, they said. They said that it was not right to allow such a controversial person to hold a program in a communally sensitive area like Bangalore.
"When Karnataka is already facing many law and order problems due to communal incidents, such events could vitiate the law and order and should not be allowed. We demand that this program should be cancelled immediately," Samiti's state spokesperson Mohan Gowda said in a complaint.
