FIR filed against All India Bakchod for Modi meme on Twitter

Published

Mumbai, July 15: The Mumbai cyber police on Friday registered a FIR against All India Bakchod co-founder Tanmay Bhat for allegedly “insulting” the prime minister through a tweet.

The complaint was filed under section 500 (defamation) of IPC and 67 IT act (Punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) taken at a cyber police station at Bandra-Kurla Complex.

It all started with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s look-alike being seen at a railway station. The photo soon went viral on social media sites in no time.

AIB was among the many Twitteratis who jumped onto the bandwagon to spread some humour. They posted the doppelganger’s photo alongside an actual photo of Modi’s face with the Snapchat dog filter.

However, not all Twitter users were impressed with the defamation and the AIB was accused from Modi supporters.

Within hours, the group deleted the post fearing more backlash.

Soon enough, some Twitter users started trolling the AIB – this time for being “scared” of the BJP and deleting the tweet.
