New Delhi/IBNS: A Delhi Assembly committee has summoned Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut for calling the farmers' protest a Khalistani movement, media reports said.

The actress has been asked to appear before the Delhi Assembly's Committee on Peace and Harmony, which is headed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha, on Dec 6.

In an Instagram post, Ranaut had courted a controversy saying, "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 niche crush kia tha (The only woman prime minister crushed them under her shoe).

"No matter how much suffering she caused to this nation... she crushed them like mosquitoes at the cost of her own life... Lekin desh ke tukde nahi hone diye (but didn't let the country disintegrate) even after decades of her death aaj bhi uske naam se kaampte hai yeh inko vaisa he guru chahiye (even today, they shiver at her name, they need a guru like her)."

A First Information Report (FIR) has already been filed against Ranaut in Mumbai.
