Vir Das’ program, which mocks Hindu deities, will not be allowed in Mumbai, the right-wing organization has said.
“If freedom of expression is to be misused, then do you have the courage to make a ‘comedy’ about places of worship for Muslims or Christians? No one would dare to do so today for fear of being directed… But these traitors know that Hindus are tolerant, so they will only protest, the organization said in its press release.
Last week, Das’ program in Bangalore was canceled due to protests from Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. Today, a similar program is underway in Mumbai. This “comic spectacle” was strongly opposed by Hindutva organizations and nationalist citizens, said Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
Vir Das mocked Hindu religion, deities and culture, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti said in his statement.
After Munawar Farooqui, it is now Hindu organizations that have started to protest against comedian Vir Das.
