Recently a petition was filled in the Bombay High Court against actress Kangana Ranaut demanding to suspend her Twitter account.
The petition was filled by Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh who stated that the actress’s tweets did damage to him. However, the Court had stated that the actress has the right to express her thoughts.
According to a report that, while the court asked Ali how the tweet personally insured him he reportedly said, “I am a Maharashtrian, Mumbaikar and she calls the Court Pappu Sena. This hurts me, and that is a personal injury.”
Later, Justice SS Shinde told the petitioner, “Any individual can have this account. She also has the fundamental right to have an account to express her thoughts. So, you have to show how your fundamental rights are breached. Unless the case comes under the reasonable restrictions, can we accede to your request? If you have to judge what will you do?”
The report further stated that the petitioner argued that there is a difference between free speech and hate speech, and Kangana‘s tweets hurt many feelings.
Later, the court asked him to come up with a new argument. The next hearing, in this case, will take place on January 7, 2021.
