BMC has ordered an FIR against actor Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel after allegations of a complainant that the actors tried to create division between communities with social media posts. As per allegation, actors tried to create hatred and communal tension through their tweets.
Casting director and fitness trainer, Munnawarali Sayyed filed the complaint.
“On prima facie perusal of complaint and submissions… I found the cognizable offence has been committed by the accused. Total allegations are based upon comment on electronic media — Twitter and interviews. The accused used social media like Twitter. The thorough investigation is necessary by the expert… search and seizure is necessary in this case,” metropolitan magistrate Jaydeo Khule said in his order.
Sayyed appealed to book sisters as per Sections 153A, 295A, 124 read with 34 of the IPC. He said that the real motives behind tweets should be investigated.
Kangana is already engaged in a fight with BMC after her Mumbai office was razed upon for its illegal construction.
Kangana started to be in limelight after Sushant’s death on June 14. She raised questions regarding nepotism in Bollywood. She also attacked Shiv Sena gov. for targetting her over PoK tweet.
While the battle with Mumbai’s civic authorities is going on in the court, the Bollywood actor has been tweeting on several issues.
On Saturday, Kangana tweeted about the Paris incident where a history teacher who had shown caricatures of the Prophet was found decapitated.
“A teacher is beheaded for a caricature, we can only imagine what those invaders must have done to our people during invasion, in today’s digital age with education and exposure they act like demons what they must have done to Bharat when they were Nomads?” Kangana tweeted.
A Karnataka court had also ordered an FIR against Kangana over her tweet in which she had slammed the protests against the Centre’s farm laws.
