Munawar Faruqui axed from Gurgaon comedy festival amid threats
Stand-up comic Munawar Faruqui has been removed from the line-up of performers at the Gurgaon Comedy Festival over "public safety concerns." The organizers of the three-day event said they had received "repeated calls" and online messages against Faruqui's inclusion in the line-up. The event will take place at Airia Mall, Gurugram, from December 17 to 19. Earlier, Faruqui's show in Bengaluru was also canceled.
