‘He Is A Muslim Too But We Love Him’: People Roast Munawar Faruqui By Praising Zakir Khan

Comedian Munawar Faruqui is facing the brunt of people who are bashing him for his content. People feel that he insults Hindu gods and they aren’t okay with it. Yesterday, he took to Instagram and suggested that he may no more perform on stage after Bengaluru Police wrote to the organizers of his show in the city, asking them to cancel the show.

In an Instagram post, Faruqui said, “Nafrat jeet gayi, artist haar gaya (hate has won, the artist has lost). I’m done, goodbye. Injustice.”   

“(From) Putting me in jail for the joke I never did, to canceling my shows which have nothing problematic in it. This is unfair. This show has gained so much love from people in India irrespective of their religion. This is unfair,” wrote Munawar.

“Inki nafrat ka bahana ban gaya hoon. Hasa kar kitno ka sahara ban gaya hoon. Tootne pe inki Khwahish hogi puri Sahi kehte hai, mai Sitara ban gaya hoon (I have become an excuse for their hatred. By making people laugh, I have become a support for so many. Only when I break will their wish be fulfilled. What they say is right, I have become a star)” Munawar added. 

It has caused a stir on social media. People are bashing him brutally and now, they have dragged Zakir Khan who’s also a comedian, into the matter. Social media users are praising Zakir for not insulting the Hindu gods and still managing to make people laugh.

One of the Twitter users wrote, “Zakir Khan is a comedian and loved by all. If you call ridiculing Hindu Gods comedy then you’re a hater. Imagine someone mocking MUHAMMAD SAHAB. Will you support him?”
