A criminal complaint has now been filed before the Metropolitan Magistrate in Andheri, Mumbai against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut for her controversial tweets.
The Criminal Complaint Filed Against Kangana Ranaut for Controversial Tweets states,
“It is pertinent to note that every Indian citizen has got the right to freedom of speech and not the freedom of ‘hate’ speech.”
The complainant of Criminal Complaint Filed Against Kangana Ranaut for Controversial Tweets, Advocate Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh, has asked the Court to take cognizance and issue process against Ranaut for allegedly committing offences under Sections 121, 121A (attempting to wage war against the Government), 124 (sedition), 153A, 153B, 195A, 298 and 505 (related to spreading enmity and hatred amongst different religious groups) of the Indian Penal Code.
Deshmukh has alleged in his complaint that Ranaut had been putting up comments against the Government of Maharashtra and executive machineries like the Ministers and Mumbai Police on her Twitter handle.
He added in Criminal Complaint Filed Against Kangana Ranaut for Controversial Tweets, Ranaut has time and again put up statements on her Twitter handle with “malafide intentions and ulterior motives of creating an atmosphere of hatred in the country amongst different religious groups.”
“Ranaut is committing criminal contempt of court by terming the judiciary as “Pappu Sena”.”
He had previously filed another complaint in July against Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel for “maliciously spreading and promoting enmity amongst different groups on the ground of religion.”
An order to this respect will be passed on October 29.
