Vir Das’ Bengaluru show, set to open today, has been canceled, he announced on Instagram. A right-wing group claimed that Mr Das’s show “hurts Hindu sentiments and presents India in a bad light”.
“We are pushing the Bengaluru show due to unavoidable circumstances. New details and dates will be announced soon,” Mr Das apologized.
A police complaint has been filed with the Vyalikaval police station by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. He was scheduled to perform at the Chowdiah Memorial Hall in Malleshwaram today after facing a backlash last year over his viral “Two Indias” monologue.
At the John F Kennedy Center in Washington DC, America, he denigrated India, women, and our Prime Minister. In the performance, he said, “We worship women during the day and rape them at night in India,” said Hindu Janajagruti Samiti state spokesperson Sri Mohan Gowda.
According to the right-wing group, such a controversial person should not be allowed to hold a program in a communally sensitive area like Bengaluru.
“When Karnataka faces many law and order problems due to communal incidents, such events which could undermine law and order should not be allowed. We demand that the program be canceled immediately,” he said.
In the Two Indias monologue, Vir Das described two contrasting faces of the country and refers to many controversial topics – from the Delhi gang-rape to the farmer protests to pollution – in broad strokes.
He underlined that it is his job to put out satire and he will continue to write “love letters to my country” as long as he is able to. He’s been nominated for an international Emmy for his Netflix show “Vir Das: For India”.
