Kejriwal taking a dig at Modi comes after actor Ramya was booked for sedition for praising Pakistani hospitality.
While praising the hospitality she received during her recent visit to Pakistan, Ramya had also disagreed with the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on his ‘hell’ comment.
A petition was filed against 33-years old actor-politician Divya Spandana, known by the stage name Ramya at the office of the Judicial Magistrate of First Class Court at Somavarapete in Karnataka’s Madikeri, demanding that she should be booked under the sedition law for her comments on Pakistanis.
Referring to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s recent remark “going to Pakistan is like going to hell,” the Congress leader had said, “Pakistan is not hell. People are just like us. They treated us very well. Parrikar’s comments (that going to Pakistan or hell is the same thing) are not true.”
This caused a huge social media backlash with many expressing their utter shock over the hypocrisy of the right-wing brigade, who had described Modi’s sudden stopover in Lahore little under a year ago as his masterstroke in diplomacy.
