News Desk: A criminal case has been lodged at the Tumkur JMFC Court in Karnataka against actor Kangana Ranaut’s tweet on farmers who are opposing the three controversial farm bills, in which she called the protesters “terrorists”. For the tweet Kangana Ranaut posted on September 20, a case has been lodged under Section 44, 108, 153, 153A and 504 of IPC.
Reacting to a tweet by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the farm bills and doubts surrounding the MSP regime, Kangana Ranaut had said, “Prime Minister, if anyone’s sleeping, they can be woken up, if someone doesn’t understand, they can be explained, but what can be done when someone is acting to be asleep or doesn’t want to understand? These are the same terrorists. Not one citizenship was lost due CAA, but they ended up spilling so much blood.”
Kangana Ranaut ended up comparing the protesting farmers and Opposition leaders to terrorists and equating them with the anti-CAA protests that rocked the country since end of 2019.
