After Arnab Goswami, now the trouble has grown for pro-BJP actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel after a court in Bandra in Mumbai ordered the police to file an FIR against both the sisters for promoting hatred and communal tension using their social media pages.
According to Mumbai Mirror, casting director and fitness trainer Munnawarali Sayyed had filed a complaint demanding that the Ranauts be booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, 153A (enmity between different groups), 295A (Deliberate and malicious act to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting their religion) and 124A Sedition.
The complainant, as reported by Indian Express, said that Kangana and her sister have been ‘continuously defaming Bollywood film industry and is portraying people working in Bollywood films as a hub of nepotism, favouritism, drug addicts, communally-biased people, murderers, etc” through her tweets and TV interviews.’
While directing the Mumbai Police to file an FIR, Magistrate Jaydeo Ghule reportedly pointed several tweets posted by the Ranauts on Sushant Singh Rajput, the Palghar lynching and calling Mumbai Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
Not too long ago, a court in Karnataka had directed the police to book Kangana for calling farmers terrorists. The FIR against Kangana was filed under the ‘Sections 44 (Injury), 108 (Abettor), 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153(A) (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) under the Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC).’
