Plea in SC demands censoring of social media posts of actress Kangana Ranaut over her 'anti-Sikh' remarks

New Delhi/UNI: A lawyer has filed a petition before the Supreme Court, seeking transfer of all FIRs registered against Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut to Khar police station in Mumbai over her remarks against the Sikh community and censoring of all her social media posts in future, so as to maintain law and order in the country.

Due to the alleged remarks made by Kangana on farmers' protests and many other issues, various complaints have been registered against her across the country, seeking action against her.

The plea, filed by Advocate Charanjeet Singh Chanderpal, also sought a direction that a charge sheet be filed in a period of six months along with expeditious trial within a period of two years in these cases against her.

The Advocate claimed that Ranaut's remarks and posts on social media "are not only outrageous and blasphemous, but also intend to cause riots".

"The remarks are not only outrageous and blasphemous, but also intend to cause riots, hurt religious sentiments, they are defamatory as well as portray Sikhs in a totally anti-national manner. It also justifies the innocent killing of Sikhs. The remarks are totally against the unity of our country and the actress deserves a serious punishment in law. They cannot be brushed aside or excused," the petition demanded.

The plea also sought direction from the Apex Court to the Union Home Ministry, the Ministry of Information Technology, along with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to take certain prohibitions and preventive measures on social media posts of Kangana Ranaut.

"None of her posts on social media should be allowed without amendment, deletion, modification or censoring in order to maintain law and order in the country," added the plea.

"Such kind of irresponsible statements can spread hatred amongst the Indians, resulting in disunity of the country," the petition stated.

"The farmers, who had objected to the three Farm Laws and the farmer policy, were from different faiths and states of India and not only from Punjab or only from the Sikh Community."
