Kangana Ranaut summoned by Delhi assembly over her derogatory remarks against Sikhs

Actress Kangana Ranaut has been summoned by the Delhi assembly panel over her remarks against Sikhs.

Kangana has been asked to appear before the committee headed by Aam Aadmi Party leader Raghav Chadha on December 6.

“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…” the committee said in a notice signed by its deputy secretary to Kangana Ranaut.

As per the summon document, “Kangana Ranaut’s blanketly labelling (Sikhs) as Khalistani terrorists has the potential to engender disharmony as well as cause wounding humiliation to the entire Sikh community.”

The actress also faces an FIR in Mumbai filed by Sikhs for her derogatory language against them on social media.

Police have a complaint from a Mumbai businessman, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee leaders and the Shiromani Akali Dal.

The parties have alleged that Kangana intentionally and deliberately portrayed the farmers’ protests as a Khalistani movement and even called them Khalistani terrorists.

Kangana is known for controversial comments on political and social issues. The actress has been a big critic of the farmers’ protests.

Prime Minister Modi-led BJP government is now preparing to repeal the three contentious farm laws in the upcoming winter session.

The government has begun its efforts to bring in a consensus over various issues. Also, PM Modi is expected to attend an all-party meeting.
