FIR Against Sai Pallavi Over Controversial Remarks on Kashmiri Pandit Exodus

FIR Against Sai Pallavi Over Controversial Remarks: Sai Pallavi’s recent statement on the lynching of alleged cow smuggler has created a heated social media stir. Sai, in a YouTube interview while promoting her new film Virata Parvam opposite Rana Duggabati equated the Kashmiri Pandit Exodus in the early 90s portrayed in the film The Kashmir Files to the lynching of suspected cow smugglers. Sai, who claims to have a neutral ideology opined, “The film The Kashmir Files depicts the assassination of Kashmiri Pandits. A man was recently slain for carrying a cow because he was suspected of being a Muslim. The perpetrators shouted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ after killing the victim. Where is the line drawn between what occurred in Kashmir and what occurred recently?”

Bajrang Dal Warns Sai Pallavi

Sai’s statement provoked a unit of the Bajrang Dal to file a police complaint in Hyderabad against her. The Bajrang Dal Bhagyanagar displayed their complaint letter on Twitter and said that a case had been filed against the Virata Parvam actor at the Sultanbazar police station. Bajrang Dal Have demanded that Sai should apologise to the entire country, particularly to Kashmiri Pandits, for her “venomous” statements. Bajrang Dal also threatened that if Sai did not do so, “the situation will deteriorate further”.

Some of Sai Pallavi’s admirers have defended her views on social media, while others have expressed their unhappiness.
