On Thursday, A petition was filed in the Bombay High Court, seeking suspension of actor Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account, as per a report by Bar and Bench.
The plea, filed by advocate Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh, alleges that Ranaut has time and again, with malafide intention, tried to create tension between two religious groups.
Deshmukh has also sought contempt action against the actor for allegedly calling the judiciary Pappu Sena.
As per the report the plea reads, “Every Indian citizen has a right to freedom of speech and not freedom of hate speech and there are restrictions imposed to the freedom of speech. Yet several people like Ranaut have been spreading hate, breaking the brotherhood, integrity of the country through their time and again provoking hate speeches disrupting the peace in the country.”
The petition also states that by referring to the judiciary as Pappu Sena, Kangana Ranaut has committed criminal contempt of court.
The petition also calls out Twitter Inc for not taking action despite Deshmukh’s repeated complaints against Ranaut’s tweets.
