Objection Sustained

Katju Crackers

  • On Indians:
    “90% Indians are idiots.”
  • On Pakistan:
    “First of all, let me tell you one thing—Pakistan is no country. It is a fake country, it is an artificially created country by the British who followed the policy of divide and rule by starting this bogus two-nation theory that Hindus and Muslims have two separate nations.”
  • On Tendulkar:
    “He is only a good cricketer. He is not socially relevant.”
  • On Journalists:
    “Our media professionals are of low intellectual calibre, with poor knowledge of economics, history, politics, literature and philosophy.”
  • On pornstar Sunny Leone’s appearance on a reality show:
    “We should not treat her as a social outcast. There is no saint without a past and no sinner without a future.”
