Why YouTuber Bhuvan Bam is Being Called 'Brave' For His Stand on JNU Violence

The comedian's tweet immediately went viral with people admiring his honesty and bravery to speak up at a time when Bollywood celebrities have remained quiet.

The violence in Jawaharlal Nehru University on late Sunday has left the entire nation shaken with social media rallying together to condemn the brutality unleashed on students and teachers.

People from different walks of life have taken to Twitter to express their dissent over the campus violence carried on by a bunch of masked men and women.

Meanwhile, Indian comedian-YouTuber Bhuvan Bam tweeted that he has been receiving 'threats' for voicing strong criticisms over the contemporary state of violence.

Bam is known for his satirical videos, which highlight the various social evils, strongly rooted in our country.

"Tweet karta hoon toh log poochte hain ‘Kaunsi party se paise mile hain?’

Paise? Bhaiyya mera politics se kuch lena dena nahi hai. 25 saal ka hoon. Apne kaam se desh ka naam roshan karna chaahta hoon. Har naagrik ki tarah desh mein aman aur shaanti chaahta hoon. (If I tweet people ask, 'Which party has funded you'. Money? I have nothing to do with politics. As a 25-year-old, I want to take my country's name higher with my work. Like every citizen, I too want peace in the country)."

The comedian told his followers that they must understand that humanity is over politics. "Physically injuring someone is inhumane and this country won't take it," he wrote. 

The comedian also wrote that he has faced threats for his tweets. He reported the number, he said, but had to keep quiet. "For one tweet I had received a threat from someone, who said, 'Will cut you open'. Till date I receive cuss words but I heart my country. I am just an honest human," he wrote in Hindi.

The comedian's tweet immediately went viral with people admiring his honesty and bravery to speak up at a time when Bollywood celebrities have remained quiet. "You're not alone brother", "Salute to your bravery"-- Bham's post was flooded with praises.
