Kangana Ranaut get summons from Delhi Assembly for Sikh remarks
Guwahati: The Delhi Assembly’s Peace and Harmony Committee has summoned Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut over her remarks on Sikhs.
The committee has asked her to appear before it on December 6 at 12 noon. The chairman of the committee is Delhi MLA Raghav Chadha.
The panel claimed it had received numerous complaints about allegedly derogatory remarks made by Ranaut on her Instagram account on Saturday, a media report stated.
The actor had said that “Khalistani terrorists were arm twisting the government”. Her comments came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the three farm laws will be repealed during the Winter Session of the Parliament scheduled to begin on November 29.
Allegedly referring to the farmers, Kangana also lauded former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi saying she took decisive action against ‘Khalistanis’. While also claiming that Indira Gandhi caused “suffering” to the nation, Kangana said she crushed ‘Khalistanis’ like mosquitoes at the cost of her life.
Taking to her Instagram story, the actor without naming Indira Gandhi said that she crushed those working to disintegrate the country.
“Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today… But let’s not forget one woman… The only woman prime minister ne inn ko apni jooti ke neeche crush kiya tha (the only woman PM who crushed them under her shoes),” Kangana posted.
The summons issued by the Delhi Assembly panel to Ranaut stated that the actor was “blanketly labelling [Sikhs] as a Khalistani terrorist… has the potential to engender disharmony as well as cause wounding humiliation to the entire Sikh community”.
