After the Pulwama terror attack last week, Navjot Singh Sidhu upset Indians with an insensitive tweet, which has led to calls for him to being sacked from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
Reacting to the news, Sharma was cited in DNA India saying, “Abhi Navjot Singh Sidhu ke kuch aur commitment hain isliye humare saath Archana Puran Singh shoot kar rahe hain. Maujuda waqt mein Sidhu humaare sath nahi hain. (Because of some prior commitments of Navjot Singh Sidhu, currently Archana Puran Singh is shooting with us.).”
“Halaaki ye bahut choti cheezein hain, ya phir propoganda hota hai jinmein iss tareeke ke baatein aati hain. Mere manna yeh hai ki kisi ko ban karna na, Navjot Singh Sidhu ko show she bahaar karna in baaton ka solution nahi hai. Ek Sthai samadhaan humein milkar dekhna hoga.”
(All this is mere propaganda. I believe banning people, sending Navjot Singh Sidhu out of the show is not the right solution. We need to look for a permanent solution.)
Speaking about the ban on Pakistani artistes, Kapil said, “Hum insab cheezon mein sarkar ke saath hain lekin phir bhi ek sthai samaadhan ki zarurat hai. Pulwama mein jin logo ne kayrana tareeke se humaare jawaano ko shahid kiya unko dhundh dhundh kar marna chahiye jismein pura desh sarkar ke saath khada hai.”
(We are with the government on this but we need a permanent solution. We need to find and kill each one of those who cowardly attacked our soldiers in Pulwama. The entire nation stands with the government.)
