Navjot Singh Sidhu received a severe backlash for his comment on Pulwama terror attack. The former cricketer-turned-politician's comment on Pulwama attack--Terrorism has no religion, no nation-- created a huge outrage on Twitter. Earlier, Twitterati was asking fans to boycott The Kapil Sharma Show and Sony TV to kick Sidhu out of the show.

However, now the irate netizens want fans to unsubscribe Sony TV and delete its app from their phones, as the channel hasn't confirmed Navjot Singh Sidhu's ouster from the show. Today Sony TV released the promo featuring Archana Puran Singh, who is rumoured to be replacing Sidhu on the show. Archana had shot for a couple of episodes as Sidhu was busy with something else. However, this didn't help as Sony had earlier tweeted about welcoming Archana from next Sunday onwards and quickly replaced the tweet with a new one, which made the Twitterati doubt the channel about Sidhu's ouster from The Kapil Sharma Show.

Have a look.

Navjot Singh Sidhu condemned the Pulwama attack and said, "For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished."

Twitterati has been asking Sidhu to apologise for his comment and after #BoycottTheKapilSharmaShow, they are now trending ##UnsubscribeSonyTV to build pressure on Sony to sack Sidhu from The Kapil Sharma Show. Archana's episode will be aired next Sunday but the channel has aired the promo a week in advance. Looks like Sony TV wants to stay away from any controversy and doesn't want to take any risk at this moment. However, their silence is not going down well with people.

Here are some of the tweets.
