Famous comic group All India Bakchod (AIB) just called in some trouble their way. Mumbai Cyber Police has filed a FIR against them for insulting Prime Minister Modi. Mumbai police said that the FIR has been filed by the cyber cell after ‘due consultation’.
What happened was AIB posted a picture of a PM Modi replica who they probably spotted at a railway station. They posted two pictures, one was simple while the other one was with a snapchat dog filter with a caption #Wanderlust.
After minutes of posting the picture/meme people started trolling them. The backlash didn’t stop and after a few hours AIB had to delete the picture. Even after all this people wouldn’t stop. A person even requested Mumbai police to take strong action against them.
Y r u all so scared to delete posts. Why can't u stick up to it? If u cant, why make it in the first place?
