New Delhi: The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has given a legal notice to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, looking for an “unconditional apology” for her “derogatory” tweets against farmers and activists associated with the farmers’ protests opposing the Centre’s three agricultural Laws, the committee’s leader stated on Friday.
On Friday, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, President of DSGMC took to Twitter and said: “We have sent a legal notice to Kangana Ranaut for her derogatory tweet calling the aged mother of a farmer as a woman available for 100 Rs.”
He added that her tweets portray farmers’ protests as anti-national. We demand an unconditional apology from her for her insensitive remarks on the farmers’ protests.
The notice appears in the wake of a tweet from the actress claiming that the ‘Shaheen Bagh dadi’ also joined the farmers’ protest over the new farm laws at several border points of the national capital.
She retweeted the post with images of two elderly women, including Bilkis Bano, and said that the “same Dadi” who was featured in Time Magazine was “available in 100 rupees”.
She said in her tweet: “Hahaha she is the same dadi who featured in Time magazine for being the most powerful Indian… And she is available for 100rupees.”
She added that Pakistani jurno’s have hijacked international PR for India in an embarrassing way. We need our own people to speak for us internationally.
A writ petition was registered on Thursday in the Bombay High Court looking for direction to Twitter to suspend actress Kangana Ranaut‘s account, reported Live Law.
Ranaut was furthermore entangled in a bitter battle of words with Punjabi entertainer artist Diljit Dosanjh over the issue on Thursday.
A huge number of farmers are camping at Delhi borders for more than seven days demanding the withdrawal of the Centre’s three new agricultural Laws.
The government on Thursday held the fourth round of discussions with farmer leaders to settle the issue. Nonetheless, the discussions on Thursday stayed inconclusive yet again. The following round is set for Saturday.
