New Delhi: A viral video of comedian Vir Das, “I come from two Indias” is being furiously debated on social media and has provoked a police complaint against the comedian by a BJP leader, Aditya Jha.

Jha, a spokesperson of the BJP in Delhi, has reportedly filed a complaint with the Delhi Police accusing Vir Das of using “derogatory” statements against India at an international platform with an intention to malign the country’s image.

He in a tweet message also wrote that “insulting our nation in another country” is not tolerable and he will fight for the arrest of Vir Das.

However, the comedian on Tuesday issued a statement clarifying that his comments in the monologue “I come from two Indias” weren’t intended to insult the country.

Das on Monday uploaded a six-minute-long video on YouTube, titled “I come from two Indias”, that was part of his recent performance at the John F Kennedy Centre in Washington DC.

In the video talks about the duality of the country and mentions some of the most topical issues India is facing, from its battle against COVID-19, incidents of rapes, crackdown against comedians to the farmers’ protests.

After the video went viral, some Twitter users posted video clips and pictures from his monologue, specifically the part where he says, “I come from an India where we worship women during the day and gang-rape them during the night.”

The 42-year-old actor-comedian, however, posted a note on Twitter stating that his intention was to serve a reminder that the country, despite its issues, was “great”.
