The Bandra Magistrate Court has ordered an FIR against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut. Kangana has been accused of inciting religious sentiments, dividing artists into Hindus and Muslims, and promoting social malice. Petitioner Munwwarali has demanded a probe against Kangana, citing tweets made in the past few times.
The petitioner had filed a petition alleging the spread of social malice between Hindu and Muslim artists in Kangana’s tweet and statements on the news. Kangana’s sister Rangoli has also been accused in this case. The complainant has also mentioned Kangana’s remarks comparing the situation in Mumbai to PoK.
The petitioner says that as a casting director he worked with all the Hindu and Muslim film directors of the film industry, but never felt any discrimination. But through social media (Twitter, Instagram), Kangana is constantly trying to divide Bollywood industry artists based on Hindus and Muslims. She has also told the Bollywood film industry to be involved in drugs, murderers, and nepotism. These tweets are creating disharmony within Bollywood and in the general public.
According to the complainant, Kangana also instigated the killing of Hindu sadhus in Palghar and calling Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as Babur Sena. They also tried to spoil the communal atmosphere by accusing the Jamaites of spreading the Coronavirus in the country.
Munnaravali also quoted Kangana’s tweet, in which she said, “They did not make a single film on Maratha pride. I have risked my life and career in this Islam-controlled industry. I have Shivaji and Lakshmibai But the film has been made. ” According to him, such messages are helping to increase hatred between Hindu and Muslim artists. The petitioner has also mentioned Kangana’s statement against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
