On Tuesday morning, Kangana Ranaut announced on Instagram that she had filed a FIR in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, in response to recent death threats she had received. At the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the actor left a lengthy letter in Hindi alongside a photo of herself. Her mother Asha Ranaut and sister Rangoli Chandel can also be seen in the photo.
The ‘Panga’ actress wrote “Remembering the martyrs of the terrorist attack in Mumbai, I wrote that never forgive or forget the traitors. In such types of incidents, the internal traitors of the country have a hand. The traitors never leave a single opportunity to tarnish Mother India for the greed of money and sometimes in the greed of position and power. Jaichand and the traitors inside the country continue to help the anti-national forces by conspiring, only then such incidents happen.”
She continues, “I am getting constant threats from disruptive forces on this very post of mine. A brother of Bathinda has openly threatened to kill me. I am not afraid of such threats. I speak against the terrorist forces and those who conspire against the country and and will continue to speak. Be it Naxalites killing innocent jawans, tukde tukde gangs or terrorists sitting abroad dreaming of making Khalistan by cutting the holy land of Gurus in Punjab in the eighties.”
Kangana further stated that our country’s greatest strength is democracy. She even mentioned Babasaheb Ambedkar in her post saying, “The fundamental right to protect the integrity, unity and the fundamental rights of citizens and expression of ideas has been given to us by the Constitution of Babasaheb Ambedkar. I have never said anything derogatory or hateful about any caste, religion, or group.”
“I would also like to remind Congress President Smt. Sonia ji that you are also a woman, your mother-in-law Indira Gandhi ji fought strongly against this terrorism till the last moment. Kindly instruct your Chief Minister of Punjab to take immediate action on threats from such terrorist, disruptive and anti-national forces.”, she added.
She also wrote, “There are going to be elections in Punjab, for this some people are using my words without context, if anything happens to me in future, only those who do politics of hate and rhetoric will be solely responsible for it. It is a humble request to them not to spread hatred towards anyone for their political ambitions to win elections.”
