Reports suggest that Navjot Singh Sidhu was asked to leave The Kapil Sharma Show following his comments on the Pulwama terror attack. Sidhu will now be replaced by Archana Puran Singh on the show.
Sidhu in a media interaction said, “Nations cannot be held responsible for the dastardly acts of terrorists. The terrorists do not have deen, mazhab (sect and religion). There are good, the bad and the ugly. Every institution has them. Every nation has them. The ugly need to be punished. But individuals cannot be blamed for the dastardly act.”
Social media criticised Sidhu’s comments and trends flooded demanding his exit from The Kapil Sharma Show. Critics are not happy with his exit from the Kapil Sharma show still, they demand his ouster from the Punjab cabinet as well.
(The Pigeon Express Opinion – Many right wing trolls hijacked the boycott of Sidhu on social media. Even though the Prime Minister and opposition parties made it clear that no politics over Pulwama, right wing trolls continue to use the platform against Congress and open minded people like Navjot Singh Sidhu during the time of grief.)
