Mumbai court rejects complaint against Kangana Ranaut, her sister Rangoli Chandel in Tablighi Jamaat tweet case | Hindi Movie News – Bollywood


A Mumbai court gave relief to actress Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel and dismissed a complaint lodged against them by lawyer Kaashif Ali Khan Deshmukh. The court officially closed the proceedings against the brothers and sisters. Lawyer Kaashif has filed a complaint alleging that on April 15, 2020, Rangoli Chandel posted a defamatory and offensive remark against the Tablighi Jamaat on a microblogging website. Hours later, her Twitter account was suspended. Her post allegedly “incited violence against a particular religious group”. The suspension came after numerous cases of netizens reporting her account for ‘hate spitting’. Kaashif also said that Rangoli’s sister and actress Kangana also supported her sister’s statement. It should be noted that Kangana’s own Twitter account was “permanently suspended earlier this year due to repeated breaches of Twitter rules”. Advocate Kaashif claimed that both Rangoli and Kanagana ‘promoted enmity between different religious groups and thereby caused disharmony between its members’. He claimed that “both defendants were furious, insulting and inciting the feelings of the Muslim community”. The court even requested an investigation report under section 202 of the Criminal Procedure Code at the Amboli police station. However, once the reports were received, Magistrate Bhagawat T Zirape said that for the prosecution against the accused under sections 153-A, 153-B, 295-A and Section 505 of the Indian Penal Code, sanction of the central government, state government, or district magistrate is a must. And without the sanction, the process of issuance cannot be passed against the accused. Magistrate Zirape further said that ‘the complaint suffers from a lack of law, sanction of the competent government. The order of issuance process is not sustainable in the absence of a ‘sanction’. He then concluded and we quote: ‘Therefore, I do not find sufficient grounds to proceed against the proposed defendants (Kangana and Rangoli) due to lack of sanction.’
