It all started with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s look-alike being spotted at a railway station and AIB co-founder Tanmay Bhat putting up a meme on Twitter

The Mumbai cyber police on Friday filed a first information report against All India Bakchod co-founder Tanmay Bhat for allegedly “insulting” the prime minister through a tweet.

The FIR was registered under section 500 (defamation) of IPC and 67 IT act (Punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) taken at cyber police station at Bandra-Kurla Complex.

Sanjay Saxena, joint commissioner of police, confirmed the development.

It all started with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s look-alike being spotted at a railway station.

The photo went viral on social media sites in no time.

Publicity theek hai yaar, lage haath thode nationalist sentiments aur hurt kar lo cuz Modi goes hand in hand. Magar joke to dhang ka ho!

AIB was among the many Twitteratis who jumped onto the bandwagon to spread some humour. They posted the doppleganger’s photo alongside an actual photo of Modi’s face with the Snapchat dog filter.


However, not all Twitter users were impressed, and the AIB came under fire from Modi supporters.

Within hours, the group deleted the post fearing more backlash.

Soon enough, some Twitter users started trolling the AIB – this time for being “scared” of the BJP and deleting the tweet.


Are you thankful for the life you’re given?
Do you want to give something back to the society?
Do you often find yourself complaining about things?
Do you take music and films as devices of distraction from the misery of life?
Is your taste in music and films influenced by the many identities you’ve assumed in your life?
Congratulations. You’re the poster-child for the changing Indian. Because let’s face it, you’re not who you were 10 years ago. None of us are. India as a nation isn’t what it was 10 years ago.
To discuss whether this change is good or not is to introduce another paradigm for the division of the masses. There’s really little to no point. Because by the end of this article, you’re either going to like me or dislike me.
But why should THAT be the discourse of the taxpayers? Whether you like another taxpayer or not shouldn’t really make national news.
What should make national news are fundamental issues we’re dealing with as a country. But let’s keep that for later.
For now, there are more important things to deal with.
As I sit down to write this article, innocent taxpayers like me are boarding local trains to reach Lower Parel.
These hardworking taxpayers have gathered to hold the culprits of their democracy accountable. To seek answers that they were promised they would be given.
Our taxpayers have been fooled, for decades, into believing that their lives would get better, that their children would go to good schools, that they wouldn’t have to sublet jewelry to afford education, that healthcare would be affordable, that unemployment would be eliminated.
But none of those promises were fulfilled. And there’s only one institution to be blamed for that:

All India Bakchod.

Some people may refer to this institution by another name but for now, let’s call them All India Bakchod because AIB is a reflection of the upper echelon most of us can only dream of touching.
The All India Bakchod promised us a future we could all be happy in.
So when hard-working taxpayers of this country took out their phones this morning, all they could see was a meme. No news about our supposed future. No news about the wars we’re carefully striding towards, no news about the oppression we’re enduring, no news about peacocks fucking each others’ eyes out.
All we saw was a meme. That makes us angry, fills us up with rage. And we’re marching to Lower Parel to protest against the meme.
What was supposed to be the answer to all our problems turned out to be a meme. How could you make fun of us like that?
We’re angry and we’re protesting. It’s the only discourse we know. It’s the only outrage we know. Memes.
AIB is a reflection of our hopes and aspirations, our frustration and anger, our boxers and briefs. So, when AIB makes a meme, we take offense because we were promised jobs, not jokes.
You made us smile the first time we met you. Actually, you made us cringe the first time we met you but we got around to liking you. We chose you. You chose Snapchat.
We’re angry because we’re getting lynched faster than your meme is getting shared. We’re angry because news, our source of information, is becoming a Republic Day Parade and you’re busy taking selfies.
We’re angry because we’re threatening one another on Twitter while you’re tweeting pleasantries from one of your trips.
We’re angry because we’re anti-national and you’re not.
In its entirety, our anger is the result of AIB’s inefficiency, its inability to handle criticism, its inability to engage effectively with the taxpayers of this country.
Just because people trust you doesn’t mean you can make fun of people by manipulating them into taking offense. That’s offensive.
We don’t have jobs, we don’t have structural healthcare, we don’t have a safe environment for women to exist, but most of all, we don’t have a sense of humor. And only All India Bakchod is responsible for it.

You used to be an advocate for humor

and now look what you’ve done.


So if you see a group of us protesting against the other All India Bakchod in front of their office in Lower Parel, know that we have been manipulated by the original All India Bakchod.
