AAP leader files complaint with Mumbai Police against Kangana Ranaut seeking sedition FIR

Menon claimed that Ranaut derided India’s independence struggle and freedom fighters by stating on air that India got its true Independence only in 2014 and the independence of 1947 was alms.

National Executive Member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Preeti Menon has approached the Mumbai Police seeking registration of FIR against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut claiming Ranaut made seditious remarks on an interview given to Times Now news channel.

In her one page complaint, Menon claimed that Ranaut derided India’s independence struggle and freedom fighters by stating on air that India got its true Independence only in 2014 (when Modi government came to power) and the independence of 1947 was alms.

Ranaut was invited as a guest speaker on the Times Now Summit 2021 where she was speaking on Indian Independence struggle.

Through this statement “she (Ranaut) has dis entitled the freedom struggle and the sacrifices of martyrs”, the complaint said.

Menon thus sought registration of FIR against Ranaut for committing offences under Sections 504 (Intentional insult to provoke breach), 505 (statements leading to public mischief) and 124A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code.
