Increasingly India is matching china in censorship and the removal of ex cricketer, Punjab minister Navjot Singh Siddhu from the Kapil Sharma show is a clear indication that in India, questioning the official policy can cause great financial losses
Siddhu was paid very well for the Kapil Sharma show.Siddhu was paid Rs 8-10 lakh per episode of the Kapil Sharma show according to online sources like Quora in 2016 and there are 8 episodes monthly. So he was making approximately Rs 10 crore per year from the Kapil Sharma show though he was mainly laughing and clapping his hands.
However Sony decided to drop Sidhu after he made the comment after the attack due to a social media campaign to boycottSiddhu on twitter.
This technique of forcing a boycott on anyone who opposes is the trademark of the gujju identity theft gang led by parmar, parekh, nikhil, they are experts in ensuring that those who they do not like are boycotted by others, suffer great losses financially. Ntro employees nikhil, parmar, parekh, have been ruthless in ensuring that the domain investor, engineer is boycotted, because she is not agreeing to identity theft, and has exposed the banking, online fraud of the ntro employees
India officially claims to be a democracy, where citizens have the freedom of speech, however on television, especially the national channels, the anchors are often extremely jingoistic in 2019
The patriotism of anyone who is exposing corruption, nepotism and abuse of power is also questioned, they find it extremely difficult to get any kind of paid work in India.
The removal of the Punjab minister Navjot Singh Siddhu, is the most high profile incident, where a celebrity was dropped for questioning the official line
Like Siddhu, the domain investor owning this website and others has also lost a lot of advertising because she is complaining about the corruption, nepotism and fraud in the indian internet sector
In February 2019 more than 70 ads were removed from the websites of the domain investor, causing a drastic drop in the revenues
