After sister Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter account suspened, famous bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut came heavily against Twitter.

In her message on Instagram video, the pro-Modi actress asked the government to shut down the popular social media platform Twitter in India.

A couple of days back, Twitter had suspened Kangana Raut’s sister Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter account for her bigoted remarks on Tablighi Jamaat and Moradabad incident. Four days back in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad, stones were pelted at an ambulance carrying a team of medical personnel and police, which had gone to escort family members of a person who died of Covid19 to a quarantine facility. Chandel's one of the controversial tweets was an emotional response to this incident. After many users complained for her allegedly hate-inducing tweet, Twitter suspended her account. Kangana in her speech emphasized that the freedom of speech is important in a democracy.

For the past many months Bollywood, world’s biggest film production industry of India, has been broken into two- Pro-Modi and Anti-Modi over Kashmir, Citizenship Act etc.

In her video, the 33-year-old actress Kangana says that she and her sister have been falsely accused by director Farah Khan Ali and screen writer Reema Kagti of calling for a genocide against Muslims. The actor’s defence is that her sister asked only for those who were attacking doctors and police officials to be shot dead. Kangana goes on to clarify that neither she nor her sister believe that every Muslim is attacking doctors and police officials.

The actor also asks the government to take action against Twitter, the social media platform, by demolishing it in India. Kangana alleges that Twitter allows for the Indian Prime Minister, Home Minister and organisations like the RSS to be called terrorists but does not allow terrorists to be called terrorists.

Finally, in the video Kangana also comes to Babita Phogat’s defence and asks for security to be provided to the wrestler who has allegedly been receiving death threats for her tweets accusing the Tablighi Jamaat for spreading Coronavirus in India.
