The internet has come together to show their love for Kamra on the other hand the fate of Kamra's right to fly on the country's domestic airlines currently hangs in the balance.
Kunal Kamra who's an Indian Comedian Kunal was facing opposition from airlines and certain ministers for his 'heckling' of a television news anchor while traveling from Mumbai to Lucknow IndiGo flight.
However, on the side of this opposition, the 31-year-old stand-up has also been receiving a sea of support from his fans.
To follow the Union Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Poori's intervention on Twitter, four Indian airlines decided to indefinitely suspend Kamra's flying rights.
A user of social media platform Twitter has posted a compilation of photos of hand-printed sign boards which is stuck on automobiles that read "Reserved for Kamra".
One can in photos that one signs has been stuck to a bike while another has been stuck to a taxi.
This is not the first innovative way to express solidarity with the popular comedian that Twitter has found. In fact, soon after the airline bans were announced, several parody accounts came out on Twitter to declare faux bans on his such as 'walk ban', auto ban', bus ban' etc.
While all this going on Twitter between supporter and opposition, one pilot of the Indigo flight 6E5317 Mumbai-Lucknow has strongly objected to the decision to ban Kamra, stating as per PTI reports:
"He did not find not find the incident "reportable" in any way. Mr. Kamra's behaviour, while unsavoury, was not qualifying of a level 1 unruly passenger. Indeed, we pilots can all attest to incidents similar and/or worse in nature that were not deemed unruly". He added that he found it very "disheartening" that the airline has acted solely on the basis of social media posts."
One should need to aware that the request for inquiry against a passenger for unruly behaviour has to come from the pilot of the flight, according to India's no-fly rules.
If you don't know that Indigo has put a 6-month ban on Kamra after he 'heckled' Republic TV anchor Arnab Goswami on a Mumbai-Lucknow flight following instructions by the Aviation Minister.
Soon after Indigo other airlines also followed the same such as Air India, Spice Jet and Go Air.
