Supreme Court refuses to entertain PIL seeking censorship of Kangana Ranaut’s social media posts

Supreme Court denied to entertain PIL seeking censorship of actress Kangana Ranaut’s social media posts.

As per reports, Supreme Court has denied a PIL seeking censorship on the social media posts of the actress Kangana Ranaut. However, the plea was filed over her controversial remarks against the Sikh community. And now, the SC ordered the Mumbai Police to further probe the statement.

Meanwhile, the PIL in question was filed by advocate Charanjeet Singh Chanderpal at the Khar police station. The application filed includes a request for a charge sheet to be filed within six months along with an expeditious trial of two years.

As per ETimes, the plea filed reads, “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.”

Besides, Kangana Ranaut is also facing a defamation case by the famous lyricist Javed Akhtar in November, 2020. The lawsuit claimed that Kangana’s statements “appear to be a clear campaign to malign and tarnish the reputation of the complainant in the eyes of the general public”.

On the professional front, Kangana Ranaut was last featured in the biographical movie based on the life of actor-turned-politician Jayalalithaa. She will next feature in the film titled Dhaakad.
