Hindu outfit warns to Vir Das after Bengaluru show deferred


Bengaluru: Days after stand-up comedian Vir Das’ show was deferred in Bengaluru following stir by right wing outfits, the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) said on Saturday that it will continue to protest against him till he apologises for his “anti-India” comments made a year before while performing in the US.

On Thursday, his show in Bengaluru was deferred in the last minute, with Das writing on Instagram that the decision was taken owing to “unavoidable circumstances”. He later uploaded a video on Twitter wherein he addressed issues pertaining to the content of his shows. “I’m an artist. I shouldn’t be on the news. Many assumptions are made about my content. I trust my art and my audience to speak for me. #TrustTheAudience,” he tweeted.

Shinde, however, claimed his outfit is not behind Das’ show getting deferred and that it had only filed a formal complaint against the comedian at a police station in Bengaluru.
