Since yesterday, a lot of people are searching “Why Navjot Singh Sidhu was removed from The Kapil Sharma?” It’s totally understood, as the former Indian star cricketer is making all the noise on the internet and news channels.
Why Navjot Singh Sidhu is back in news?
Yesterday, Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the post of president of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. He was appointed on the post just a couple of months ago. Reportedly, Sidhu was insecure due to Charanjit Singh Channi’s appointment as the new Chief Minister of the state. Also, there have been reports that he felt the loss of control over important decisions of the Indian National Congress in the state.
Ever since he resigned from the party chief, memes have flooded Twitter. Netizens are trolling him and asking Sidhu to go back to The Kapil Sharma Show as he was part of the show as a permanent guest for several years.
As memes related to Sidhu and Kapil‘s show have flooded social media, many are digging into the past by Googling “Why Navjot Singh Sidhu was removed from The Kapil Sharma Show?” in the first place.
Here’s the real reason…
It was back in 2019 when Navjot Singh Sidhu shared his unpopular opinion regarding Pulwama Attack. He said that the entire Pakistan couldn’t be targeted due to few people.
“Nations cannot be held responsible for the dastardly acts of terrorists. The terrorists do not have deen, mazhab(sect and religion). There are good, the bad and the ugly. Every institution has them. Every nation has them. The ugly need to be punished…,” reads Sidhu’s exact quote.
As expected, Sidhu’s comment wasn’t well-received by many. Trends like ##BoycottKapilSharmaShow and #BoycottSonyTV on Twitter drastically impacted the show and channel’s reputation. After a lot of criticism, Sidhu was asked by the channel to step down as a permanent guest.
Archana Puran Singh replaced him!
After Sidhu left the show, Archana Puran Singh replaced him as a judge and has been part of the show since then.
