Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the head of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the president of the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, slammed Kangana Ranaut on Saturday, accusing her of making "hateful" remarks and filing a complaint against her.
Either a mental institution or a prison should be her fate. In a tweet, Mr Sirsa said, "We demand that the government take strict action against her for her nasty content on Instagram."
Kangana Ranaut posted Instagram stories after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that the Centre will abolish three disputed farm rules, dubbing India a "Jihadist Nation" and asking for tyranny in the country, according to the complaint filed by the Congress' youth wing.
Kangana Ranaut, who just received the Padma Shri Award, praised former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi for destroying 'Khalistanis' like insects, prompting the Akali Dal leader's remarks.
The actress did not name Indira Gandhi in her Instagram story, but she said she destroyed those who sought to divide the country.
"Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today... But let's not forget one woman... The only woman prime minister ne inn ko apni jooti ke neeche crush kiya tha (the only woman PM who crushed them under her shoes)” Kangan Ranaut wrote on her social media accounts.
Ranaut has spoken in disrespectful and offensive terms towards the Sikh community, claiming that they were crushed under her (Indira Gandhi's) feet. This move on her side is extremely demeaning, insulting, and disdainful, according to the official, and has damaged the feelings of the Sikh community around the world.
