FIR lodges against Shirish Kunder for anti-Adityanath comment


FIR was lodged against filmmaker Shirish Kunder for making derogatory comment  against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

In a series of tweet, the filmmaker slammed the Yogi. In the tweets, Shirish Kunder had written, "Hoping a goon will stop rioting once hes allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once hes allowed to rape (sic)".

In a following tweet, he said: "Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director. And Mallya - RBI Governor (sic)."

Soon after that FIR was lodged against him for allegedly making unpleasant comments against the UP Chief Minister. The FIR was registered in Lucknow by the secretary of Thakurdwara Trust of Ayodhya, Amit Kumar Tiwari.

Shirish Kunder later made public apologised for his remark on Twitter.

#I unconditionally apologise. I never meant to hurt anyones feelings or sentiment.
