“I’m done! Goodbye! Injustice”, Comedian Munawar Faruqui wrote in an Instagram post after the cancellation of Bengaluru show

Comedian Munawar Faruqui show was scheduled on 28th November at Good Shepherd auditorium which is now cancelled by the Bengaluru Police. They urged that several organisations are opposing this stand-up comedy show and Mr. Faruqui is a “controversial figure” whose show will lead to “law and order problems.”

So the Comedian today, in his Instagram post indicated that he may not do any more shows as more than 12 of his shows have been cancelled in the last two months due to threats from right-wing groups. Faruqui spent a month detained due to charges of “insulting Hindu Gods and godesses” in one of his comedy shows.

In his today’s post, he captioned, “Nafrat jeeta hai, artist haar gaya. [Hate has triumphed, the artist has lost]. I’m done! Goodbye! Injustice.”

More than 600 tickets of his show were already sold for the Bengaluru event but the show got cancelled dure to “threats of Vandalism”.

The Comedian wrote in his Instagram post, “Month back my team called late Puneeth Rajkumar sir organisation for charity which we will be going to generate from this show in Bangalore. We agreed to not sell the show on the name of charity as suggested by the noble organisation.”

Faruqui expressed his sorrow and disappointment with the repeated cancellations and wrote, “Putting me in jail for the joke I never did to cancelling my shows, which has nothing problematic in it. This is unfair. This show has gained so much love from people in India irrespective of their religion. This is unfair. We do have censor certificate of the show and it’s clearly nothing problematic in the show.”

At the end of his post, he wrote, “…I think this is the end. My name is Munawar Faruqui and that’s been my time. You guys were wonderful audience. Goodbye, I’m done.”

His fans could easily detect how broken the Comedian is and many requested him to keep hope and not to stop doing shows. Many supported him by commenting, “We are with you” and others told him that this isn’t the end and there is a long journey ahead for him. Even music composer Mayur Jumani encouraged him in the comments section and said, “Nope. You’re not quitting. We won’t let you.”
