Says the film actress misusing her Right to Speech & Expression
New Delhi, Dec. 1 (Delhi Crown): A plea has been moved before the Supreme Court seeking to censor the social media posts of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut “in order to maintain law and order situation in the country”.
In his plea, Sardar Charanjeet Singh Chanderpal sought a direction from gthe Apex Court to Union Home Ministry, IT Ministry, TRAI and state police authorities of different states to take “preventive action on social media against Kangana Ranaut”.
Referring to Ranaut statement (put up on Instagram) as regards the Farmer’s Laws vis-a-vis its irrelevant reference as a Khalistani Arm twisting tactic, the plea seeks transfer of all FIRs pan-India registered against her to Khar police station (Mumbai) with a further prayer for filing of chargesheet in 6 months and trial to be completed in two years.
Significantly, the plea also alleged that Ranaut is making abuse use of her Right to Speech and Expression through her posts on social media platforms, particularly Twitter and Instagram.
The plea quoted Kangana Ranaut’s statement on her Instagram account, saying “Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today, but let’s not forget one woman, the only woman Prime Minister ne inko apni jooti ke neeche crush kiya, no matter how much suffering she caused to the nation, she crushed them like mosquitoes at the cost of her own life, lekin Desh ke tukde nahi hone diye. Even after decades of her death, aaj bhi uske naam se kaapte hain yeh, inko vaise hi Guru Chahiye.”
The plea said that there was absolutely no necessity or need or even the slightest room for making such an outrageous, provocative and irresponsible statement on social media.
