Reacting to the FIR against Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel, Kangana’s lawyer as per a Hindustan Times report Rizwan Siddiqui said, “My client’s tweets are not used for spreading communal hatred. It spread due to several other reasons… There is a burden of proof on the complainant to show how the post spread communal hatred or who was affected by it. It cannot apply only by looking at the statement.”
“For further comments, I need to see the full complaint along with the other documents referred to and relied upon by the complainant,” Rizwan Siddiqui added.
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut has been an active feud with BMC and Shiv Sena party member Sanjay Raut. Post her verbal battle on Twitter with Raut; we saw the BMC demolish an unauthorised part in her Mumbai office. Kangana has been vocal about the happenings that followed the same.
