Modi ji can I walk or is there a ban even on that: Kunal Kamra
Kunal Kamra and Arnab Goswami controversy is on trend. The comedian was suspended from flying by IndiGo and Air India on Tuesday after he allegedly heckled Goswami.
Mumbai: Kunal Kamra and Arnab Goswami controversy is on trend. Kamra shared a video on twitter which divided social media into two teams. Some of netizens are supporting Kamra's trolling style and some are impressed with Arnab's calm behaviour in the flight.
After Kunal Kamra shared his video from Indigo flight from Lucknow to Mumbai, Indigo, Air India and Spice Jet Airlines banned him flying with them until futher notice. All of them airlines shared their official statements on social media.
Reacting to three airlines banning him from flying for allegedly heckling famous television journalist Arnab Goswami aboard a flight, stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra on Wednesday said he was never "unruly or disruptive".
He posted on his social media account that flying suspension was not "shocking" for him. The comedian was suspended from flying by IndiGo and Air India on Tuesday after he allegedly heckled Goswami aboard a Mumbai-Lucknow plane and posted a video clip on his Twitter handle.
SpiceJet became the third airline which suspended Kamra from flying until further notice on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, IndiGo had suspended Kamra from flying for a period of six months and Air India until further notice.
Shortly after when SpiceJet suspended him from flying with the airline, the comedian posted a sarcastic tweet: "Modiji can I walk yaan uspe bhi baan hai (Modi ji can I walk or is there a ban even on that)" and added crying emojis in the tweet.
"It's not shocking at all to me that for exercising my right to speech, which falls under Article 19 of our constitution, 3 airlines have given me a temporary ban from flying. Fact of the matter is that at no point was I disruptive and at no point did I not follow the orders of the cabin crew or the captain," he tweeted.
"At no point did I endanger the safety of any passenger on board, the only damage I caused was to the inflated ego to the 'journalist' Arnab Goswami," he stated.
Kamra said he had not travelled with SpiceJet or Air India in this event and there is no "pattern of him being unruly".
"This was the first time something like this has happened, so why have they jumped the gun and banned me? I've travelled SpiceJet and Air India in the past. There have been no complaints against me ever, only selfies and love has been shared by the crew," he tweeted.
The comedian further said that as per his "limited knowledge" no formal complaint was made by the crew, Goswami or anyone else on board the (Mumbai-Lucknow) flight.
"Whenever there was an intervention by any member of the crew I complied. If expressing myself to an important public figure, who himself points a camera day in and day out, catching people off guard is a crime, then Both of us are criminals," he wrote.
