In a letter written in Hindi, Surendra Kumar Gupta said, “This individual mocks Hindu gods and goddesses in his show. As a result of this, communal tensions were triggered in Bhagya Nagar. We urge you to immediately cancel this show, or else, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal activists will oppose the show and hold protests against the same.”
Notably, the upcoming Delhi show, which is a part of Munawar Faruqui’s ‘Dongri to nowhere’ tour is scheduled to be held on August 28 at the Kedarnath Stadium in Delhi’s Civic Centre. The ticket for the show is available on Paytm Insider.
The controversial stand-up comedian has recently seen many of his live shows of ‘Dongri to nowhere’ being cancelled over his past indecent remarks against Hindu gods and goddesses and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. On August 21 (Sunday), his show scheduled to be held in Mumbai’s YB Chavan Auditorium was cancelled after event organisers did not get the required permissions.
