    Worse than being beaten up he was even arrested for Ďoutraging religious feelingsí.

    It wasn't because of the 'outraging religious feelings', it was because of this:

    Indians need to let go of past which is scarred by recent memories of British rule and embrace Islam wholeheartedly in my opinion. That way there will be no conflict of emotions when defending religious feeling regardless of whether the year is 2000 BC or 2021 AD.

    Slight emotions would be a protest tweet or holding a placard assuming the country was religious in the first place. Here we are talking about a "secular" nation where religious minorites are brutally assaulted and arrested by the authorities for merely partaking freedom of expression. Please explain?

    Haha, from justifying to people here why Islam should be allowed to be insulted under secular democracies to now saying oh well if one religion is insulted so can the other. Do you want that makes you? A hypocrite. Guess that's the hallmark of Indian trolls here, hiding behind western usernames too. Patehtic.

    Liam...or is it Patrick? If you want Islamic values why not just become Muslim? Best of all you can still keep your hindu name Liam unless you want to change it yourself to reflect your core belief of Islam.

    Simple explanation - first, you were singing a different tune when people in France, another 'secular' country, exercised freedom of expression. Don't worry, being hypocrite is not a crime, yet.

    second, your understanding of Indian 'secularism' as defined by our constitution is faulty. I suggest you rely more on credible papers, than your bigoted whatsapp group messages.

    I already replied above, and I suggest you fix your understanding of Secularism. It is one of the most complex English word. I hope you will stop your 'secular' bogey.

    Few slaps is still a 'slight' emotion in comparison to be-heading. as your brothers have been doing for past few thousand years (only). You don't need to be an expert of 'theory of relativity' to comprehend this.

    Also, imagine a Hindu comic in India making fun of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), will you still defend Hindu comic's right of free speech because India is a 'secular' state? Answer this question please, I will be mostly interested.

    Yes I see you have responded to my post twice, it seems emotion has certainly been stirred whether we can call it secular or religious. I am not sure across both posts what it is you want me to answer? Explanation of secularism or what constitutes violent assault?

    I think English may not be your first language. So let me type slowly, so you can understand my question -
    Will you defend the right of free speech of a Hindu comic in India if he were to make fun of Prophet Mohammad(PBUH)? India is a 'secular' country, so I think you will not have any problem. Right?

    Itís comedy, if you donít like it then donít watch it.

    The last thing India wants is a Blasphemy law, a law thatís misused against Pakistani minorities.

    If you need to mock sacred figures and religious deities to get some laughs in your comedy show then its probably time to rethink your career.

    Religious figures should not be spoken about in an offensive manner.

    On the nail.

    There is absolutely no need to insult religious figures. Good comedy is possible even without bringing religion in.

    Sigh, why can't people learn to ignore? If you don't like that comedian or find his shows offensive, don't attend the show, don't watch the video, why give unnecessary coverage? Idiotic priorities for a country/society plagued with serious problems adversely affecting daily life.

    Shame on MP police and people who are finding ways to justify the arrest. Clampdown on cartoonists, comedians, peaceful protesters, what a democracy!!!

    Not really. I donít think all Muslim countries have a blasphemy law embedded in them. It just feels that it is an unwritten rule like love your kids or respect your parents or be nice to others kind of thing where you need to respect others religious sentiments. May be this is me living in secular democracies all
    My life talking and May be I donít understand how states founded on religious incompatibility deal with it. I donít think God or men who are enlightened beings or prophets are that insensitive that they care for what people think of them anyways.

    Now coming to this comedian, I see black comedians make fun of other races but they do point out social issues as well, goes for every good
    Comic, I donít mean equivalence for the sake of it.

    Also I wonder how it would have turned out for this comedian had he insulted islamic practices being a Muslim. Last time an Indian author wrote a book, that had some cryptic message criticizing his religion, he became an international refugee, banned in his own country which is supposedly secular.

    Anyways either this is going to go all over your head or you are going to nod in affirmative but then go back to the same argument again, so it is futile, but hey give me credit for trying as we probably have been here before.

    Why are Athiest 'Hindus' upset over this?

    Though I agree there should be a line for comedians. Muppets needs to understand that offending someone's personal beliefs is not comedy, it's desperation.

    Try making a laugh out of 9/11, Holocaust, or even disabled people. Lets see how hard you'll laugh.

    Cpt. is a hardcore blasphemy enthusiast who said Samuel Paty deserved what he got. You shouldn't be surprised by his views, tis not much different from that of Anjem Choudary.

    Who here has heard of Michael McIntyre?

    He is the most succesful comedian on the planet.

    His comedy standups do not include profanity, it's clean, family friendly, and his topics never include religion, politics, etc. Just everyday experiences turned into laughter.

    He is succesful because he's proven you don't need to mock religion/politics for the giggles.

    Religion is fine and has its own benefit if used in the right quality and quantity.

    However the immediate concern is these supposed standup comics who speak a irritating version of Hinglish and cater to a certain section that I call South Mumbai crowd( may include posh areas of other big cities of India where you will find quiet a few such posers accepting of these bozos).

    These guys are not very funny and try to ape the west.

    The sensibilities donít translate in India. We donít have a white guilt equivalent or whatever. In the last few centuries every Indian regardless of Hindu or Muslim or any other religion/caste, has been a victim of some form of discrimination in some time in our history, so you canít blame Indians for not being ready and a little Sensitive to this kind of humor involving culture and religion.

    Bigger problem is some Indian youth in general who are having confused sensibilities.

    At least look at Pakistanis, most of them even the British expats speak like they are addressing the Mughal court in 1600 in pretty much every scenario

    They seem to have a more retro sensibility when it comes to humor like calling some one a kalla or a mota or using phrases like Hinduon ki zehniyat and bagal me churi waala hindu baniyaan or breaking tvs when Hindu customs are shown.

    They seem to be accepting of their humor sensibilities a lot more though.

    Shame on MP police and people who are finding ways to justify the arrest. Clampdown on cartoonists, comedians, peaceful protesters, what a democracy!!!

    His comedy standups do not include profanity, it's clean, family friendly, and his topics never include religion, politics, etc. Just everyday experiences turned into laughter.

    He is succesful because he's proven you don't need to mock religion/politics for the giggles.
    Heís not even the most successful comedian in UK.

    Frankie Boyle is what you call a comedian. He mocks everything and everyone. And Iím sure most people would go to his show over Mcintyres

    I have seen comedians make fun of 9/11 but not from a political, religious aspect or even make fun of the dead. It drew groans from the crowd but thatís about it.

    Holocaust will have a different impact though, I think Megan Fox called someone a Jew or
    Something and her career was done and many such instances in Hollywood where careers were destroyed for Anti Semitic statements that donít look very serious in some cases. Itís still not acceptable though.

    On the other hand we have made satirical movies like OMG and PK block buster hits even though they were pushing the envelope and were biased towards one religion.

    We have been in lockdown for a year now but I am sure most of us with an access to internet and some moderate level of intelligence to comprehend and follow the news have seen careers being destroyed on perceived racist,anti Semitic,misogynistic statements that they might have said a long time ago (doesnít make it right though).

    Yeah they might not have been arrested and spent a night in jail but got away lightly with their careers being destroyed. In the ďwestĒ I may add.

    To those who say that ignore it when someone mocks your religion or holy figures, how will you react if someone abuses your parents/sisters/daughters right on your face? If you will present a smile and walk away, then must admire your principles (which may be from zen like state of mind, or broken family relationships). Only that you won't and will give excuse that your family members are real and someones holy figures are not real for you.

    Here is the problem, in the US or other counties common folk are common folk. They move on after initial outrage. Do we even know or followed what is happening with Disha or SSR case which was the staple of every news channel a few months back?

    However there is a powerful power center, that takes decisions behind the scenes. As we know Hollywood is controlled by powerful Jewish folk and they will never tolerate anything anti Semitic or even remotely trying to understand Hitlerís policies and administration from a neutral perspective. Yes he was an evil man but has anyone ever had a take or tried to understand on his rise to power or if he make even 1 meaningful decision in his reign? You will never get that.

    In India there is no such lobby, I mean yes there is a power center of a few who control the industry but none of them come across as someone with any strong emotional attachment or ideology. They are probably idiots who are kept around by the powerful lobby above them. However we do have a mob justice attitude. So when someone gets out of hand, we take it to the cops or the second best option in our own hands because we know that nothing else will be done.

    I never liked making fun of other people's beliefs/faiths. Be it Hindus, Muslims, Christian, Sikhs, it is just not nice to hurt anyone's faith or what they hold sacred.

    From some of the news channels (not sure how factual they are) these comedians (there were 5 of them, 2 Hindus among them) were making sexual jokes on Hindu goddesses. I don't know if they were funny or the context for those jokes, but knowing the culture of India, why do you have to make such jokes? Indian law clearly says you shouldn't mock any religion or religious figure (not necessarily Hinduism but ALL religions) so the comedians knew what they were getting into. Sense of humour and Freedom of expression doesn't mean you go around abusing religion (especially when there is a constitutional law about it).

    However that radical Hindu organisation had no business in thrashing the comedians, and all those goons should also be put in jail for taking law into their own hands.

    All those who are saying take it easy on the religion in India should understand the complexity of the situation a little better; just this week 3 temples in South India have been vandalised, with the deities beheaded/defaced/destroyed. Religion is a sensitive topic in India and any public figure needs to tread this carefully.

    My life talking and May be I don’t understand how states founded on religious incompatibility deal with it. I don’t think God or men who are enlightened beings or prophets are that insensitive that they care for what people think of them anyways.

    Now coming to this comedian, I see black comedians make fun of other races but they do point out social issues as well, goes for every good
    Comic, I don’t mean equivalence for the sake of it.

    Also I wonder how it would have turned out for this comedian had he insulted islamic practices being a Muslim. Last time an Indian author wrote a book, that had some cryptic message criticizing his religion, he became an international refugee, banned in his own country which is supposedly secular.

    Anyways either this is going to go all over your head or you are going to nod in affirmative but then go back to the same argument again, so it is futile, but hey give me credit for trying as we probably have been here before.
    I am not really sure what is the argument you are presenting here. Do you want me to become a hindu or a black person? I think both would be quite difficult to be fair, although not impossible by any means.

So heís a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and heís not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because heís so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And itís endearing to watch him.Ē

    Her career was over.

    Take a chill pill
    In my head it makes perfect sense
    It was funny because Hindutavas lynch people, probably it's a great indian past time just like baseball is for Americans
    They take all of the families to hunt and lynch Muslims for a nice day out with thier families
    So it makes perfect sense when Hindutavas are having a bad day they go lynching
    Technics did a great job there (although not saying thomas lynches people of course but it's funny non the less)

    There is a TV program called Khabarnak/Khabaryar in Pakistan where a dozen of comedians and the host impersonate and laugh at politicians, opposition parties, police, army, mullahs, foreign celebs etc etc. That includes IK or Zardari or Shareefs etc.

    I highly doubt anyone of them will be arrested or beaten in the street by thugs. As a matter of fact they are hilarious and got a solid fan base.

    I was not one of them, and always denounced anything that mocked religion. Just because some of these indians are hypocrites, doesn't make it right for anyone to mock my religion, which includes people like me who do not mock any other religion, nor support such acts.

    Although this guy is a muslim, so I can tolerate him, as he is from different civilization and understandable when a muslim mocks my deities. It is those hindus who laugh and clap at such insults I have zero tolerance for.

    Mocking anyones religion never ends well. As a Muslim I believe that mocking anyones profound beliefs is wrong. This guy should have been more sensible and we would have avoided the trouble. Maybe the same Hindutuva groups can realise that it cuts both ways and no doubt they will thrash the guys that abuse Islam in India, or is hypocrisy the order of the day.
