Following the cancellation of stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui's shows, senior Congress leader and former union minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday slammed the "Hindutva brigade" saying India is a" tolerant nation where all faiths live together in harmony and peace".
"All in a day's work for the 'tolerant' Hindutva brigade. Comedian Munawar Faruqui's show is cancelled, a Church is vandalised in Matiala, Delhi. We can boast that we are a tolerant nation where all faiths live together in harmony and peace!" tweeted Chidambaram.
Comedian Munawar Faruqui on Sunday had issued a statement on social media hinting at quitting stand-up comedy after Bengaluru Police asked organisers to cancel his show in the city.
The show was cancelled citing that the programme by the "controversial figure" could lead to a possible law and order problem in light of threats from several organisations on social media.
