Kangana Ranaut Summoned by Delhi Assembly Panel For Her Statement Mentioning ‘Khalistani Terrorists’

New Delhi: After facing an FIR in Mumbai for her allegedly derogatory remarks against the Sikh community, actor Kangana Ranaut has now been summoned by the Delhi assembly’s panel on peace and harmony. The actor has been asked to appear before the committee headed by Aam Aadmi Party leader Raghav Chadha on December 6, reported NDTV.

Kangana had taken to her Instagram stories a day after the government announced that it will be repealing the three contentious farm laws. The actor, who is often criticised for allegedly hurting the sentiments of communities and has faced multiple FIRs for her controversial statements in the past, was sent a summon on Thursday. The notice that the committee sent to Kangana in Mumbai reads, “The committee has received numerous complaints eliciting inter alia, outrageously offensive and derogatory Instagram stories/posts allegedly published by yourself on 20.11.2021 over your official Instagram account… (sic).”

The summons further mentions that Kangana’s “blanketly labelling (Sikhs) as Khalistani terrorists… has the potential to engender disharmony as well as cause wounding humiliation to the entire Sikh community.”

On Monday, a fresh police complaint was filed against Kangana for allegedly hurting the sentiments of the Sikh community by referring to them as ‘Khalistani terrorists’ in her post on social media a few days back. The complaint was filed at Mumbai’s Khar police station by one Amarjit Singh Sandhu who accused Kangana of trying to spread hatred with her statements and show disrespect to a community. Kangana has been booked under Section 295A of the IPC that is about ‘deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs.’

The Padma Awardee had taken to her Instagram stories to write:

Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today. But let’s not forget one woman. The only woman prime minister ne inn ko apni jooti ke niche crush kia tha (The only woman prime minister crushed them under her shoe). No matter how much suffering she caused to this nation, she crushed them like mosquitoes at the cost of her own life. Lekin desh ke tukde nahi hone diye (but didn’t let the country disintegrate). Even after decades of her death, aaj bhi uske naam se kaampte hai yeh inko vaisa he guru chahiye (even today, they shiver at her name, they need a teacher like her)…
