Chandigarh: Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu has been asked to leave ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ following his comments on the Pulwama terror attack.
Sidhu will be replaced by Archana Puran Singh on the popular television comedy talk show.
Although Sidhu had condemned the death of CRPF soldiers in the terror attack at Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, he reportedly said “an entire nation can be blamed for the deeds committed by a handful”.
His comments were met with harsh criticism and since then social media has been flooded with posts demanding his exit from The Kapil Sharma Show.
Meanwhile, Sidhu claimed that his comments had been “distorted”. “I was only saying that we need to find a permanent solution to the problem of terrorism. Why should soldiers be made to suffer each time? Such attacks have been happening for the last 70 years,” he said.
