Munawar Faruqui’s tweet on Justin Bieber

One of the most loved comedians of India, Munawar Faruqui got into troubled waters for a tweet on Justin Bieber’s partial face paralysis. A day after Hollywood pop icon Justin Bieber revealed his health condition, Munawar Faruqui had taken to his Twitter and shared, “Dear Justin Bieber, I can totally understand, Even here in India right side not working properly.” Following this, Munawar was subjected to a lot of hate comments and trolling from netizens, and celebrities alike.

Sai Pallavi’s comment on Kashmiri Pandits

The latest controversy this week was Tollywood actress Sai Pallavi’s comment which compared the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits to the prevalent cow vigilantism in India.

In a recent interview with Great Andhra, she had said, “The Kashmir Files showed how Kashmiri Pandits were killed at the time. If you are taking the issue as a religious conflict, there was an instance recently where a Muslim was attacked when he was driving a vehicle carrying cows, and people chanted Jai Shri Ram. So where is the difference between what happened then and what is happening now?”

Since then, a police complaint against the actress has been lodged in addition to the brutal trolling.
