Khalistani Terrorists Comment: Kangana Ranaut Not Yet Ready To Face Delhi Assembly Panel
New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut had been summoned to appear before a Delhi Assembly panel on peace and harmony on December 6 over her controversial and derogatory remarks made against the Sikh community on social media.
But the Bollywood actress excused herself today, seeking more time and citing professional and personal commitments as the reason.
“Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer, in a letter, has informed that the actor cannot appear before the panel due to personal and professional commitments. She has sought more time. Today’s meeting stands cancelled. The committee will inform its decision to her in a letter,” head of the committee Raghav Chadha told NDTV.
The panel had been formed after the February 2020 riots in north-east Delhi, with a mandate to keep an eye on possible incidents that could disrupt peace in the city.
Kangana was summoned by the panel for ‘blanketly labelling Sikhs as Khalistani terrorists’, as it can lead to disharmony and cause wounding humiliation to the entire Sikh community.
“The committee has received numerous complaints eliciting inter alia, outrageously offensive and derogatory Instagram stories/posts allegedly published by yourself on 20.11.2021 over your official Instagram account,” the committee said in its notice to Kangana.
The controversial actress also faces an FIR in Mumbai, which was filed by Sikhs for using derogatory language against them on social media.
