Pulwama Attack: Banning Navjot Singh Sidhu is not a solution, backs government
New Delhi : Indian comedian Kapil Sharma said he supports government's decision on Pulwama attack, but not convinced with a decision to ban Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Speaking at an event, Kapil Sharma said there was a need to find a solution to the issue of terrorism so that attacks like Pulwama don’t happen but such kind of propaganda (to remove Sidhu) is not right.
DNA quoted him as saying: “Abhi Navjot Singh Sidhu ke kuch aur commitment hain isliye humare saath Archana Puran Singh shoot kar rahe hain. Maujuda waqt mein Sidhu humaare sath nahi hain. (Because of some prior commitments of Sidhu, currently Archana is shooting with us.)
“Halaaki ye bahut choti cheezein hain, ya phir propoganda hota hai jinmein iss tareeke ke baatein aati hain. Mere manna yeh hai ki kisi ko ban karna na, Navjot Singh Sidhu ko show se bahaar karna in baaton ka solution nahi hai. Ek Sthai samadhaan humein milkar dekhna hoga. (All this is propaganda. I believe banning people, sending Sidhu out of the show is not the right solution. We need to look for a permanent solution.)”
He also shared his views on banning artists from Pakistan. He said: “Hum insab cheezon mein sarkar ke saath hain lekin phir bhi ek sthai samaadhan ki zarurat hai. Pulwama mein jin logo ne kayrana tareeke se humaare jawaano ko shahid kiya unko dhundh dhundh kar marna chahiye jismein pura desh sarkar ke saath khada hai. (We are with the government on this but we need a permanent solution. We need to find and kill each one of those who attacked our soldiers in a cowardly manner in Pulwama. The entire nation stands with the government.)”
Though Kapil Sharma's remarks have attracted a fresh wave of criticism amid demands to boycott his show completely.
