Mumbai: Comedian Munawar Faruqui on Wednesday took to his social media to confirm that all his upcoming shows in Mumbai have been cancelled. This comes after the threats by various groups of the Hindu right-wing who demanded the Mumbai police to ban his impending events here, accusing him of hurting their religious sentiments.
According to Bookmyshow, Faruqui’s show titled ‘Dongri to nowhere’ was scheduled to take place from October 29-31 in Mumbai. Taking to Instagram, Faruqui wrote, “Upcoming Mumbai shows 29, 30, 31st Oct 2021 are cancelled. The safety of the audience is what matters most to me. I don’t want my audience to go through what I am experiencing.”
