PM Modi meme: FIR registered against AIB by Mumbai Police

All India Bakchod (AIB) has landed in another controversy. The YouTube group which has already cracked hundreds of jokes on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, have once again come under scanner for their latest meme. Their tweet showed a doctored image which showed ‘Modi’ waiting at railway station and using dog filter on Snapchat, along #Wanderlust.

The cyber cell of Mumbai police on Friday registered an FIR against All India Bakchod after the comedy group posted a meme showing Prime Minister Narendra Modi using the dog filter on Snapchat, ANI reported. AIB has been charged with defamation and also under the IT Act with an offence for which the punishment is up to three years in jail, besides a Rs. 5 lakh fine.

The tweet posted by AIB was meant for taking a dig at prime minister’s frequent foreign visits. After the tweet, AIB faced severe backlashes on social media, after which AIB deleted the tweet. The founders of AIB Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi, even indulged in arguments over post.

The social media also asked Mumbai Police to take action against AIB. Mumbai Police responded promptly by claiming that they will forward the complaint to cyber police.

This is not the first time AIB has landed in controversy. Earlier, AIB was entangled in legal case in 2014 for the infamous AIB roast. Even last year, Tanmay Bhat had posted a meme video of singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar which was posted on Snapchat, titled “Sachin vs Lata Civil War”.
