and

Now
an
FIR
has
been

allegedly

communal
violence
in
West
Bengal.

According
to
reports,
the
complaint
has
been
filed
by
activist
Riju
Dutta.
Dutta
in
the
FIR
shared
Kangana’s
post
from
Instagram
alleging
that
the
actress
has
maligned
the
image
of
West
Bengal’s
Chief
Minister
Mamata
Banerjee
and
urged
that
police
take
the
necessary
action
against
Kangana.

The
complaint
read,
“Ms.
Ranaut
has
posted
several
posts
from
her
verified
official
Instagram
handle
bearing
URL:
http://instagram.com/kanganaranaut?igshid=2yruw6zd7j
in
the
‘Story’
section.
She
has
also
distorted
and
maligned
the
image
of
the
Hon’ble
Chief
Minister
of
West
Bengal

Smt.
Mamata
Banerjee.
Hence
she
is
to
be
charged
against
hate
propaganda
to
incite
violence
in
West
Bengal.”

For
the
unversed,
after
Kangana’s
Twitter
account
was
suspended,
she
shared
similar
posts
on
Instagram.
While
reacting
to
the
post-poll
violence
in
Bengal,
Kangana
reportedly
took
a
direct
dig
at
the
Chief
Minister
of
Bengal,
Mamata
Banerjee
in
her
statements.

Notably,
a
Twitter
spokesperson
also
opened
up
about
Kangana’s
account
suspension
and
said
it
was
“constantly
provoking
anger
and
violence,
which
was
diminishing
the
value
of
global
public
conversation
on
the
platform.”

This
is
not
the
first
time
an
FIR
has
been
filed
against
Kangana
for
her
posts
and
statements
on
social
media
platforms.
Earlier,
complaints
were
filed
against
her
with
Mumbai
police
for
allegedly
enticing
hate
against
a
community.
