Comedian Jaspal Bhatti’s satirical rally on corruption on Thursday earned the ire of VHP which accused him of hurting religious sentiments on account of showing a deity as ‘corruption devta’, prompting him to issue an apology.

[Punjab unit chief Vijay Singh] Bhardwaj said that they were opposed to corruption, but by naming a diety as ‘corruption devta’ Bhatti had hurt the sentiments of Hindus.

One wonders how Bhardwaj would react if he started reading blogs or tweets.

Bhardwaj is derived from Bharadwaj. It looks like his lineage truncated vowels so everyone (and not just Pnjabis) would pronounce it how they want it pronounced.
