In April 2020, Munawar landed into a controversy after his YouTube video went viral, where he was seen making fun of Hindu deities Ram and Sita, and the 2002 Godhra massacre. A complaint was filed against him with the Mumbai police by Hindutva activist and former Shiv Sena member, Ramesh Solanki.
He faced a serious backlash on Twitter as thousands of netizens flooded Twitter with the hashtag that read “#ArrestMunawarFaruqui.” He later apologised for unintentionally hurting the religious sentiments of people.
After a couple of days, a video went viral of an altercation between Gaur and Munawar, where Gaur was seen accusing Munawar of hurting religious sentiments of Hindus by making jokes on Hindu Gods while Munawar was calmy trying to explain that no such thing was happening. Later, Kamlesh Sharma, the Inspector of Tukaganj Police station told The Indian Express that there was no video evidence to back the allegations of him insulting Hindu deities or Union Minister Amit Shah. Many prominent comedians, including Varun Grover, Vir Das, and Rohan Joshi came up in Munawar’s support and criticised his arrest.
Even though no incriminating evidence was found against Munawar, his bail plea was rejected for the third time by the Madhya Pradesh High Court on the grounds that since the investigation is still underway, there is a possibility that more evidence might be brought to light.
