The summon has been issued for her remarks against Sikhs on social media. Ranaut has been ordered to appear before the committee on December 6.

In a statement issued by the committee, they have received multiple complaints on the “outrageously offensive” and “derogatory” social media posts by Ranaut. For the same reason, her account on Twitter was suspended.

Considering this, the committee has summoned the actor and she is to appear at 12 PM on December 6, 2021.
About Kangana Ranaut Sikh Remarks:
An FIR was filed against the Queen actor in Mumbai as well, for her comments against members of the Sikh community and linking them with terrorists. The person who filed this complained accused Ranaut of “intentionally and deliberately” hurting the sentiments of the community and associating farmers protest to the “Khalistani” movement.
The FIR was lodged on November 23, Tuesday, by a 47-year-old Mumbai-based businessman Amarjeet Singh Sandhu along with Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
In a post on social media, Ranaut had written, “Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today… The only woman prime minister ne inn ko apni jooti ke neeche crush kiya tha (the only women prime minister who crushed them under her shoes). No matter how much suffering she caused to this nation…she crushed them like mosquitoes at the cost of her own life… Lekin desh k tukde nahi hone diye (but she didn’t let the division of nation happen).”
Ranaut has been charged with section 259A for deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion and religious belief, of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
