Standup comedian apologises for insulting Hanuman Chalisa, says he is a Hindu too and will never repeat such acts

In a video clip that had gone viral on social media, so-called stand-up comedian Alokesh Sinha was seen comparing the Hanuman Chalisa to anti-bacterial soap.

On Monday, a stand-up comedian named Alokesh Sinha apologised for hurting Hindu sentiments and using derogatory words against the Hindu faith in one of his alleged stand-up-comedy shows. Sinha had mocked the ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ in a derogatory manner in one of his shows in February resulting in a complaint being registered against him.

A video of Alokesh Sinha’s performance had gone viral on social media recently, where he was seen peddling his inherent hatred against Hinduism and Lord Hanuman. In the video, the alleged stand-up-comedian was seen insulting the Hanuman Chalisa by comparing it to anti-bacterial soap.

As the anti-Hindu ‘comedy’ of Alokesh Sinha went viral on the internet, several social media users flagged the Hinduphobic content and slammed the ‘comedian’ for using derogatory words against Hinduism under the garb of comedy. Apparently, the video was recorded a few months ago.

Many people from the Hindu community were hurt regarding the increasing Hinduphobic content on media platforms. Soon, a complaint with the Cyber Cell of Mumbai was filed against him by Ramesh Solanki, a former Shivsena leader.

In his complaint, Ramesh Solanki had informed the police that the ‘Stand-up comedian’ Alokesh Sinha has hurt religious sentiments of Hindus. A complaint was also registered against the venue partner – Habitat Mumbai for providing space to people who spread anti-Hindu propaganda.

Following the backlash, ‘Stand-up comedian’ Alokesh Sinha, seems to have realised his blunder. He decided to apologise for his cheap theatrics. In a video message shared by Ramesh Solanki, Sinha was seen apologising and expressing regret over his derogatory statements against the faith of Hindus and the Hanuman Chalisa.

Alokesh Sinha not only apologised for his anti-Hindu act but also informed that the video has been taken down by him. Sinha has also informed that he is a Hindu and he believes in Lord Hanuman too. Sinha added that he will never repeat such acts in future.
