'No laughing matter'

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh

Support continues to pour in for Kiku Sharda, who has been arrested for mimicking Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

Rishi Kapoor shared a picture, above, and wrote: See this picture! I would like to play this rockstar in a film. Let me see who puts me behind bars? Go Kiku Sharda!

Anurag Kashyap: Gurmeet Ram Rahim insults the sensibilities of anyone who is sixth class pass with his MSG films.. Why is he not arrested??? Really the man who has to call himself Insaan to prove he is maybe a human, is of such weak disposition that he gets a comic arrested. This arrest of Kiku Sharda , the way it happened, and for reasons that it did is the really the rock bottom of democracy.

Twinkle Khanna: A country where everything is sacred except laughter #KikuSharda

Nimrat Kaur: So a professional comedian can be jailed for recognising an unintentional one. No laughing matter.

Shekhar Ravjiani: Arrest the ones who are still walking free despite committing serious crimes. Not those who entertain without prejudice.

Mini Mathur: The agenda is to systemically silence all opinion & free speech. So no one can question anything anymore. Can't everyone see it? Poor @kikusharda was doing his job. One that he is great at. Funny no one arrests him when he takes the piss out of actors. Oh wait.

Huma Qureshi: Living in the times where one can get arrested for laughing lampooning and imitation... will I get arrested for tweeting next? #outrage

Boman Irani: First things first, If the man has sincerely apologised could someone please put him out of his misery!!!

Sonakshi Sinha: Someone imitates god - nothing. Kiku imitates someone - gets arrested. This is wrong on SO many levels its not even funny.

Sonali Bendre: When do we learn to laugh at ourselves? @kikusharda disturbing.

Sonu Sood: So true.. Wakeup India. It's 2016.. @kikusharda bro we R with u.

Paresh Rawal: In Bengal a cartoonist was n in Haryana a comedian is arrested ! Free Kiku . It's an opportunity for Baba to spread love n happiness.
