October 17 : A Bandra metropolitan court has ordered an FIR to be registered against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel over alleged “hatred” and “communal” tweets. Based on a complaint filed by a casting director and fitness trainer Munnawarali Sayyed, metropolitan magistrate Jaydeo Khule issued the order.

The complainant stated in his petition that Kangana was “creating divisions between communities and spreading communal hatred”. Passing the order, magistrate Jaydeo Khule said, “On prima facie perusal of complaint and submissions… I found the cognizable offence has been committed by the accused. Total allegations are based upon comment on electronic media — Twitter and interviews. The accused used social media like Twitter. The thorough investigation is necessary by the expert… search and seizure is necessary in this case.” The magistrate asked the concerned police station to investigate the complaint.

Munnawarali Sayyed sought that the Ranaut siblings be booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code as according to his plea offences under sections 153A, 295A, 124 read with 34 of the Indian Penal Code have been committed by Kangana and Rangoli through their interviews and social media accounts. These sections pertain to promoting hatred between different communities, deliberate and malicious acts to outrage religious feelings, and sedition with common intent.

Sayyed alleged that for the last few months he has observed on social media that the actress “is continuously defaming Bollywood film industry and is portraying people working in Bollywood films as a hub of nepotism, favouritism, drug addicts, communally-biased people, murderers, etc through her tweets and TV interviews.” This, he said, “is creating a bad image of Bollywood in the minds of people and even creating a communal divide between people of two communities and in the mind of common man”.
