Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut took a dig at Twitter for blocking her sister’s verified Twitter account and called for the government to shut down Twitter in the country, and that India should find a way to start its own social media platform.
Kangana’s sister Rangoli’s post was reported by several people who considered it a hate tweet. In her sister’s defense, the actor shared a video message on Instagram, where she says if anyone can find a tweet where Rangoli says anything offensive, “then we both will publicly apologize”.
The actress said that her sister called for only those who attacked doctors and cops to be shot dead and that neither of them is saying that every Muslim is attacking the healthcare community or police officials.
Kangana Ranaut adds that Twitter allows people to call the Indian Prime Minister, Home Minister, and the RSS as ‘terrorists’, but does not allow actual terrorists to be termed so. She urged the government to ‘shut down’ Twitter in India, and start ‘our own’ social media platform to air our views.
Kangana also came to wrestler Babita Kumari Phogat’s support and requested for security to be provided to her. World Wrestling Championships bronze medalist received death threats for her posts on Twitter accusing the Tablighi Jamaat of spreading the novel coronavirus in India.
