    INDORE: Call it infiltration of the rib-tickling kind. The performances of two stand-up comedians in Mhow Cantonment Board were cancelled by alarmed Army officers after they learnt that they were from Pakistan. Irfan Malik and Ali Hasan, known as Pakistan's Laurel and Hardy, were denied permission to put up their show at the last minute, when the officers realized the kerfuffle it might create.
    Malik and Hasan were scheduled to perform before a large civilian and Army crowd at Mhow (sometimes described as an acronym of 'Military Headquarters of War' because of the huge Army base there) on Monday. The event was linked to the inauguration of an open-air theatre with state industries minister Kailash Vijayvargiya as chief guest.

    The 'Mhow somersault' will now probably end up as another gag in the repertoire of Pakistani comedians Irfan Malik and Ali Hasan.

    They performed for Indian soldiers near Chandigarh but once the Army got to know of their "Pakistani origin" from military internal intelligence, their show at the Mhow Cantonment Board was a no-no.

    It is another matter that the Pakistani duo are a hit on Indian television shows. "No one thought this could raise eyebrows since the two had entertained Indian soldiers at a place near Chandigarh just a couple of days before their Mhow programme," claimed a civilian functionary of the show's organizing team.

    Kailash Pande, vice president of the Cantonment Board, said they had completed all the procedures to get Irfan and Hasan for the show. "Once we learnt the Pakistani artists were coming to India, we got in touch and they happily agreed to perform. They also got clearance from the ministry of external affairs. But at the eleventh hour, we were told they should not be allowed into the Army base," Pande said.

    What followed was a rush to save face. The organizers finally managed to rope in a couple of Indian comedians to stand in for the Pakistani duo.
