Recently Popular Stand-up Comedian Kunal Kamra confronted Republic TV Journalist Arnab Goswami on a Indigo Flight on his Nationalist arrogance and the way he conducts debates and asks questions to the people involved.
Kamra also says that during the confrontation Goswami called him mentally unstable, and is seen ignoring Kamra throughout the video.
This went big on the internet with people supporting either side affronting on the other.
Kunal Kamra Tweeted –
Met Arnab Goswami on a flight & gave him a monologue about his ‘journalism’— Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) January 28, 2020
All he did was call me mentally unstable & after sometime I had no choice but to return to my seat.
The entire flight I’ll keep pretending to use the loo just to tell him he’s piece of SHIT
I did this for my hero…— Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) January 28, 2020

After his tweet, Hardeep Singh Puri , Civil Aviation Minister of India and Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs called his behavior “offensive” and urged other airlines to impose restrictions on Kamra.
Offensive behaviour designed to provoke & create disturbance inside an aircraft is absolutely unacceptable & endangers safety of air travellers.— Hardeep Singh Puri (@HardeepSPuri) January 28, 2020
We are left with no option but to advise other airlines to impose similar restrictions on the person concerned. https://t.co/UHKKZfdTVS
Acting on his advice, AirIndia, SpiceJet and GoAir also bans Kunal Kamra.

The ban imposed on #kunalkamra by 4 airlines is the act of a coward leveraging his influence with the Govt to silence a critic.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) January 29, 2020
