New Delhi: A legal notice has been sent by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, seeking an unconditional apology for her “derogatory” tweets against farmers and activists involved in the protest against the Centre’s farm laws.
“We have sent a legal notice to @KanganaTeam for her derogatory tweet calling the aged mother of a farmer as a woman available for Rs 100. Her tweets portray farmers protest as anti-national. We demand an unconditional apology from her for her insensitive remarks on farmers protest,” Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president of DSGMC, said in a tweet.
Earlier this week, Kangana misidentified a woman farmer from Punjab as Bilkis Bano, who made international headlines during the anti-CAA protests in Shaheen Bagh.
She shared a tweet alleging that the ”Shaheen Bagh dadi” too joined the farmers’ protest over the new farm laws at various border points of the national capital.
She retweeted the post with pictures of two elderly women, including Bilkis Bano, and wrote that the “same Dadi” who featured in Time Magazine was “available in 100 rupees”.
