Kiku Sharda

I fail to understand how mimickry by Kiku Sharda violated secion 295A of IPC which reads:

" 295A. Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage reli­gious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or reli­gious beliefs.—Whoever, with deliberate and malicious intention of outraging the religious feelings of any class of citizens of India, by words, either spoken or written, or by signs or by visible representations or otherwise, insults or attempts to insult the religion or the religious beliefs of that class, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both ".

 It seems that a sense of humour has departed from our country, and freedom of speech and expression can be violated, and sacrificed to intolerance
