The FIR by Mumbai Police against All India Bakchod (AIB) over a Snapchat filter featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi has evoked a sharp response on Twitter with many supporting the Indian comedy collective’s co-founder Tanmay Bhat and his team.

It all started when PM Modi’s look-alike was spotted at a railway station and his photo went viral on social media sites in no time.

AIB was among the many on Twitter who jumped onto the bandwagon to spread some humour. They posted the doppelganger’s photo alongside that of Modi’s face with the Snapchat dog filter, leaving his supporters irked.

Several users, including stand-up comedians, voiced their reservations about the group’s humour but argued that the FIR was ‘unwarranted and stupid’.

One user Anuradha pointed out that Mumbai Police overlooked a harassment complaint by a woman a few days ago but was prompt in taking action against someone for posting a meme.

Here’s how others on Twitter reacted to the FIR:
