Yes, another one for the Jail Jao morcha!
Sometime back I had written a piece on how it is okay to show your dislike for a video you didn't like, but not alright if you want to get a person arrested for the same, unless it's inflammatory...or if the person on whom the video was targeted wants action on it!
Tanmay Bhat is getting a lot of flak for his Snapchat video where he is spoofing Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar. Whether the video was cool or not, is entirely up to your discretion but we are clear about what we didn't like - his insulting of Lata Mangeshkar's age and the 'death' joke! But was it enough to get him arrested and banned! Hmmm...we don't really think so!
But MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) thinks otherwise and they are trying to put him behind bars. And supporting them in their 'struggle' is the Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
During an interview with NDTV, he clearly gave his opinion on Tanmay, 'Tanmay Bhat is a repeat offender, he deserves no freedom. He has insulted the mother of music.'
Later, when speaking to the leading daily, Dainik Bhaskar, he said, 'Banning this character in Maharashtra is not enough. Lataji and Sachin Tendulkar don’t belong to Maharashtra only, they are a part of every Indian’s life. This fellow has insulted every Indian. He should be arrested immediately without any further delay and dealt with severely. Doing this two institutions who have devoted their lives to doing our country proud…shame!'
Why do we have a feeling that Tanmay Bhat just got a little more support from anti-Censor Board campaign?
