Youth are crazy about India Bakchod (AIB), it is a the group which has amassed over 100 million views on their video and has 2 million subscribers on You tube as the comedy group which has often pushed the boundaries of comedy in India, found themselves at the end of massive trolling when they posted (and subsequently deleted) a meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Times of India report that-The cyber police at Bandra-Kurla complex are investigating the issue. On deleting the picture, others accused the group of being cowards and of only going after the Congress and dubbed the comedy group as ‘coward’ and ‘hypocrite’.
Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi the founders slammed the critics and they also suggested that they had to take the meme down. FIR has been lodged against Tanmay Bhat for his ‘inappropriate’ tweet on PM Modi, reported ANI.
Mumbai police, who were recently criticised for laughing off a woman’s complaint of a man masturbating in a local train, responded promptly by claiming that they will forward the complaint to cyber police.
In the video, Tanmay superimposed the images of singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and showed them having a conversation if Virat Kohli were better than Sachin.
This comedy outfit, that loves to ruffle a few feathers each time with their video posts, had earlier landed in a controversy after Tanmay Bhat posted a video on Facebook with the title “Sachin vs Lata Civil War”.
