Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter account was suspended on Thursday following a controversial tweet. In her tweet, Rangoli wrote that doctors and medical workers are being attacked and killed while testing people for the novel coronavirus. She then directed the tweet towards a religious group, and asked for ‘secular media’ and ‘mullahs’ to be ‘made to stand in a line and shot dead’.
Her now-taken-down tweet read, “A Jamati died of Corona when police and doctors went to check their families they were attacked and killed, secular media, make these mullahs + secular media stand in a line and shoot them dead…f****k the history they may call us nazis who cares, life is more imp than fake image (sic)”
The tweet was flagged by various celebrities on Twitter, who called for action against Rangoli Chandel.
Filmmaker Reema Kagti and actress Kubbra Sait also took to Twitter to criticise Rangoli for her post and tagged Mumbai Police to take action against her.
Reema Kagti wrote, “@MumbaiPolice. Could you please look into this and take action? Isn’t this spreading fake news AND inciting hatred & violence against certain people?”
Sharing the same tweet, Kubbra Sait wrote, “I’ve blocked Rangoli and reported her to Twitter. But @MumbaiPolice @CMOMaharashtra @OfficeofUT This kind of hate mongering is irresponsible. Please look into it, and take necessary actions.”
After the account was suspended, jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali thanked Twitter for the same.
Rangoli is currently at her residence in Manali along with her family due to the nationwide lockdown.
