In One Tweet, Sonakshi Sinha Nailed Why Arresting Someone For Imitating A Godman Is Problematic

On January 13, actor Kiku Sharda was sent to 14 days of judicial custody under section 295A of the Indian Penal Code, for mimicking self-styled religious guru Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and hurting religious sentiments.

He was later let out on bail after he publicly apologised for the sketch, which was performed on the popular show Comedy Nights With Kapil recently.

A lot of people stood up for Sharda, none more so than Sonakshi Sinha, who absolutely nailed the problem with his arrest in this one tweet.

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