The choice to drop the show comes while expanding discontent in the state over Chief Minister Pramod Sawant’s reluctance to get control over traditional gatherings that is being viewed as a sharp takeoff from his archetype Manohar Parrikar, who had even restricted Sri Rama Sene pioneer Pramod Muthalik from entering Goa, a boycott that is in power right up ’til the present time.

The Hindu Janjagriti Samiti had, in a portrayal to the state, affirmed that Faruqui ought not to be permitted to proceed with his show as he “has poked foul fun at Hindu divine beings”. 

“He has designated them. He was in a correctional facility for 37 days in Madhya Pradesh for offending the Hindu religion,” Samiti representative Jayesh Thali said. 

“There are decisions in Goa, and such occasions could make sharpness in the state. If Pramod Muthalik can be prohibited in Goa, for what reason is Munawar permitted in Goa,” he inquired. 

Faruqui has seen a few shows drop the nation over under-supported tension from so-called vigilantes who have promised not to permit him to perform anyplace in the country.
