Ludhiana, November 25

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) legal wing has sought an FIR against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut over her alleged remarks, terming farmers agitating against three controversial farm laws as “Khalistani terrorists”.

A delegation led by former SAD minister Maheshinder Singh Grewal, national president of the SAD legal wing Parupkar Singh Ghumman and SAD district president Harbhajan Singh Dang submitted a written application addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Ludhiana, for taking prompt action against the actress.

In its application, Ghumman alleged that the actress having lakhs of followers on social media posted her remarks on Instagram, a social networking site, which were sufficient to spread hatred in different sections of society, particularly the Sikh community living across the world. The Sikh community has been hurt and defamed due to her remarks.

It has been alleged that the actress mentioned in a post that former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi through Operation Blue Star in 1984 crushed Sikhs like mosquitoes and saved the country from terrorism. It has been further alleged that though the Sikh community was hurt, she saved the country by sacrificing her life.

Ghumman alleged that all this was done intentionally with a malafide intention to hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community by terming them to be associated with the Khalistani movement. These remarks were made in connection with an upcoming film ‘Emergency’, based on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Lawyers Inder Pal Singh Nobby, Mandeep Sahni, Akashdeep Sandhu, Puneet Gupta, Amandeep Singh, Amardeep Singh and Varun Gupta were among others who were part of the delegation.
