aib, aib modi meme, aib narendra modi, all india bakchod fir, narendra modi aib meme, all india bakchod modi meme, india news AIB was criticised by many on social media for their Narendra Modi meme.

Mumbai Police Cyber Cell has registered an FIR against comedy group AIB after they tweeted a post on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The post used a Snapchat dog filter for Modi’s image and posted it along with a photograph of a Modi-lookalike looking into his phone. Posted with the hashtag ‘wanderlust’, apparently the post was trying to take a dig at the Prime Minister for his foreign visits.

However, soon people took offence at the post and urged Mumbai police to take action against the group, which has often posted provocative material in the past. By Thursday evening, the post was taken down. AIB co-founder Tanmay Bhatt later tweeted: “PS: Will continue making jokes. And deleting if necessary. And making jokes again. And Apologizing if necessary. Don’t care what you think.”

Bhatt also expressed displeasure over the outrage expressed by political leaders. “Congress leaders and BJP trolls both getting mad over a goddamn silly snapchat filter meme smh…. I get BJP trolls, they’ve got no better work. You guys are a part of the party. You actually hold some responsibility. Waking up in the morning and trying to shame some comedians for deleting a meme. Ispe utar gaye ho,” he wrote in a series of tweets.

AIB has been a part of multiple controversies in the past including the time when they used another Snapchat filter on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.

        these BJP people did not spare any one. They were making fun from Pt, Jawahar Lal Nehru to Dr.Manmohan Singh. Cheap fun of the BJP were also giving pain. Sir, respect gets respect whatever you are holding post. for tat. I suggest the BJP people to have tolerance if it is a healthy joke. Our PM was calling Rahul Gandhi as Shehzada or Pappu. Vulgar language was used against late Mrs Indira Gandhi. Please look first in your own heart and then blame others These jokes are also out of frustration as our PM has failed on every front.

                  Are you demanding respect for the post of PM or respect for Mr Modi? I guess it is not meme on the PM that has angered you instead it is making fun of Modiji that has got your goat. You bhaktrolls have been doing a pretty nasty job of denigrating our previous PMs like Pandit Nehru or Dr Manmohan Singh. You have not even spared Mahatma Gandhi.

                  the group has been a social nuisance for a long time. should spend rest of their life behind bars in harrowing conditions.
