The Bombay High Court on Thursday notified a petitioner to justify why he is seeking a ban on actor Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account. Earlier this month, a petition was filed in the court seeking a permanent suspension or deactivation of the Bollywood actor’s Twitter account for “spreading continuous hatred, disharmony in the country and attempting to divide the country” and “promoting crime” with her “extremist tweets”.

The criminal writ petition in question has been filed by Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh against Ranaut under Section 482 of the CRPC (Saving of inherent powers of High Court), HT reported. Meanwhile, arguing that the petition did not raise any grievance baout personal injury to the petitioner, Additional public prosecutor JP Yagnik called for its dismissal.

Additionally, the Maharashtra government told the Bombay High Court on Thursday that the petition was “vague”, and the plea was not maintainable.

This petition comes after several controversial tweets by the actress and her sister Rangoli Chandel, which allegedly incited hatred against communities, were called out on social media. These tweets also included the one which subsequently led to the suspension of Chandel’s account by Twitter India for targeting a specific community. The petition also includes Ranaut’s tweet in which she compared Mumbai to “Pak- occupied- Kashmir”. “She (Ranaut) has multiple FIRs pending against her. In the past she has misused the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput for her own gains and she is doing so now with farmers’ protest too,” Deshmukh said.

A National Award-winning actor, Ranaut has been receiving flak on social media this entire month, owing to her Twitter war with actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh. The Good Newwz actor called her out on social media for misidentifying an elderly Sikh woman participating in the farmers’ protest.  Read all about it here.

A legal notice was sent to her by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) for a “derogatory tweet” against farmers and activists involved in the protest.
