Known for his quirky statements, Digvijay Singh has again decided to pin his nose in unnecessary controversy. His formal invitation to tainted anti-Hindu people like Kunal Kamra and Munawar Faruqui has not gone down well with BJP heavyweight Narottam Mishra.
Are Digvijay Singh, Kumal Kamra, and Faruqui hobnobbing?
Digvijay Singh, who currently does not hold any power in the Madhya Pradesh administration, took the responsibility of providing security to Kamra and Farooqi in Bhopal. His main caveat regarding their safety is that they have to make fun of Digvijay Singh himself. He also asked for their preferred date and time; and gave them freehand, effectively absolving them of any possible anarchic consequences.
मैं कुणाल तुम्हारे और मुन्नवर के लिए भोपाल में शो आयोजित करता हूँ। सारी ज़िम्मेदारी मेरी होगी।
शर्त एक होगी, कॉमेडी का सब्जेक्ट केवल दिग्विजय सिंह होगा।
इसमें तो संघियों को एतराज़ नहीं होना चाहिए!! आओ डरो मत!!
अपनी सुविधानुसार तारीख़ व समय दो।
तुम्हारी सभी शर्तें मंज़ूर हैं। https://t.co/PRrvY0zupm

Kamra was quick to pounce on the issue and tried to crack a joke by insinuating that his life will be in danger if he accepts his invitation.
Sir thank you for the kind invitation. Checking if we have life insurance and getting back to you ASAP 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 https://t.co/2Ka0USmzpj

Narottam Mishra won’t allow anyone to insult Hindus in MP:
Meanwhile, Narottam Mishra, home minister of Madhya Pradesh quashed any chances of Hindus being insulted in the state.
In his interaction with the media, Shri Mishra did not hold back in attacking the Congress leader for his idiosyncrasy. In a reference to a famous comical statement of Rahul Gandhi, he asked Digvijay to organise a comedy show for them who talk about converting Potato into Gold.
#MadhyaPradesh में अगर किसी ने हिंदू देवी-देवताओं को अपमानित करने वाला शो किया तो उसका स्थान सिर्फ जेल ही होगा।@digvijaya_28 जी को अगर कॉमेडी शो करवाना ही है तो @RahulGandhi जी को क्यों नहीं बुला लेते हैं?@kunalkamra88 pic.twitter.com/4IUyAQ6vnz

Clearly stating his intent to send offenders in Jail, Narottam Mishra said, “If he (Digvijay Singh) wants to invite anyone, he should invite those who have a habit of back-stabbing, he should invite those who called Punjipati (Capitalist) as Poojapati. If anyone insults our Devi-Devtas in his/her show, then they will land in Jail. No one will be allowed to play with someone’s feelings at any cost”
Narottam Mishra’s no-nonsense attitude towards liberals:
Touted as the next chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Narottam Mishra has a no-nonsense attitude towards liberals. Recently, he had issued a strict warning to Sabyasachi for insulting Mangalsutra, the pious ornament worn by Hindu women for their husbands. Similarly, he has asked for a formal apology from Vir Das for his extremely insulting stand-up against India. Additionally, Vir Das stands banned from performing in Madhya Pradesh until he apologises.
Faruqui and Kamra perform lopsided shows:
Munawar Faruqui and Kunal Kamra are two ‘comedians’ currently facing Hindus’ backlash for their anti-Hindu stand-up. To compensate for the lack of originality in their content, they resort to insulting India, the Indian Army, Prime Minister Modi, and Hindus’ Bhagawan‘s. And this is the very reason why the awakened citizens of the country are opposing them.
No one is against comedy. But if comedy takes the shape of propaganda and makes fun of one’s religion or customs, then that becomes a concern for a multi-cultural society. Narottam Mishra’s strict attitude is a warning against biased and lopsided people driving their agendas in the name of comedy.
