Contentions in the Complaint
The Compliant against Kangana Ranaut reads,
“….this posting on twitter account of the accused posted by her may lead to collision between the people of different group believe in different ideology. It seems that the government authorities have turned a blind eye to the same and does not have any established measures or rules and guidelines to control and regulate the same. On the bare perusal of all these content it is more than evident that the government is least bothered and as usual waiting for some dangerous consequences to happen before taking some appropriate actions.”
If such content is allowed to be posted on these platforms, “then incalculable and irreparable damage will be caused to the Farmers of the Country“, the complaint against Kangana Ranaut stated.
“All those who are responsible for allowing this content to be posted on the social media and those who are promoting such material to malice and defame the country’s backbone, with intention to spread the violence and destabilize the country are liable to be prosecuted and punished under these Sections 44,108,153,153A and 504 of the Indian Penal Code.”
The Court has been urged to take cognizance of the offence committed by Kangana under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code or direct the jurisdictional police station to register an FIR in this respect.
