FIR Filed Against Comedy Group AIB For 'Insulting' PM Modi in Meme

FIR Filed Against Comedy Group AIB For 'Insulting' PM Modi in Meme

The post used a Snapchat dog filter for Modi's image and posted it along with a photograph of a Modi-lookalike looking into his phone.

All India Bakchod (AIB) has landed in another controversy.

A spokeswoman for the Mumbai police said today (July 14) that the force had registered a first information report against All India Bakchod (AIB) over a tweet poking fun at India's leader. It was filed at the Bandra-Kurla Complex, Cyber Police station. The picture was captioned #wanderlust, a satirical attempt on the Indian Prime Minister's foreign travels.




The photo went viral on social media sites in no time. "Don't care what you think". Mumbai police, who were recently criticised for laughing off a woman's complaint of a man masturbating in a local train, responded promptly by claiming that they will forward the complaint to cyber police.

AIB has been a part of multiple controversies in the past including the time when they used another Snapchat filter on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.

Tanmay Bhat, one of the most prominent faces of the AIB, then posted the screenshot of one of PM Modi's old tweets saying that 'We surely need more humour in public life'. Bhat clarified that while he will withdraw such tweets to save himself from legal trouble, he will continue to make similar jokes. Even past year, Tanmay Bhat had posted a meme video of singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar which was posted on Snapchat, titled "Sachin vs Lata Civil War".
