The Bengaluru police has once again denied permission to stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui‘s show Dongri to Nowhere, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday (August 20).
The event was cancelled as the organisers had not taken permission to organise it in the city, police said.

A fringe outfit Jai Shri Ram Sena had lodged a complaint against the comedian and the organisers with Bengaluru Police Commissioner C H Pratap Reddy.
In its complaint, the outfit alleged that Faruqui has hurt Hindu sentiments in his shows by making insulting remarks against Lord Ram and goddess Sita.
The comedian was denied permission to perform here in November 2021 on the same ground.
