    A six-minute video from stand-up comedian Vir Das, listing some contrasts found in India. Such as:
    "I come from an India where children in masks hold hands with each other and yet, I come from an India where leaders hug each other without mask"

    "I come from an India where we take pride in being vegetarian, and yet run over the farmers who grow our vegetables"

    Kangana Ranaut says such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism.. strict action must be taken against such criminals. Some BJP folks have filed complaints at their local police stations.

    I watched all of the six minutes of the video. Found nothing objectionable in it

    OMG, To me, every word he has spoken is downright objectionable to say the least! I dont see any pride in a fellow citizen going to another country and raising !comedy: as he sees it at the cost of a whole nation's pride. There may be many faults and a lot of issues in India that he talks about , but generalising the whole thing as belonging to all Indians and their behaviour is just not to be tolerated. I would like to see him being made to apologise for his action, or even better stripped of his citizenship - he need not belong to India.

    I felt same. I thought it’s more of the ironies he was telling which are real and yes truth hurts. I don’t really know what Kangana really thinks and her remarks are just callous like the recent India independence year and I can just go on. I have stopped giving any importance to her talks and skip them totally.

    What he said is true.
    But why wash India's dirty laundry in another country just for laughs.
    That's a shame.
    He cannot generalize all Indians for few persons mistakes.

    What he said is true but honestly I don't find comedy to laugh. I'm just thinking of presenting ourselves so cheap in front of others is comedy?

    If you wash your dirty laundry in India you get killed, the freedom of press is under threat under Modi government

    The killing of Gauri Lankesh

    when a leader of the country actively suppress the freedom of the press then this is how comedy will look like

    Under Modi, India’s Press Is Not So Free Anymore (Published 2020)
