The order was passed by Magistrate Jaydeo Ghule based on a complaint filed by fitness instructor and casting director Munnawarali Sayyed.
Kangana Ranaut and Rangoli Chandel may face trouble soon as reportedly the Bandra Magistrate Metropolitan Court has directed the Mumbai Police to register a complaint against the sisters for allegedly creating a divide among communities through their social media posts.
Moving the Bandra court on Thursday, Sayyed prayed for appropriate directions under Section 156 (3) of the CrPC to the Bandra police to register a first information report against the two sisters under the IPC.
He added, "Total allegations are based upon comment on electronic media - Twitter and interviews".
"Prima facie on perusal of the complaint and submissions, I found a cognisable offence has been committed by the accused", the magistrate said.
Citing her tweets about the Palghar lynching where she referred to the BMC as "Babur Sena", Sayyed said "Kangana is creating divisions between Hindu artistes and Muslim artistes.is maliciously bringing religion in nearly all her tweets". The actress has been extremely active on Twitter since she made her debut on social media. The complaint mentions her recent tweets where she compared the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) to Babur Sena, claiming that she is the first person to make movies on Jhansi Ki Rani (Manikarnika) and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and comparing Mumbai to POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir).
The complainant also stated, "Police investigation is necessary to ascertain the real motive behind such hate tweets, and who are the people backing such hatred to create communal tension and sentiments".
During the hearing, the complainant had submitted that the "Queen" actress continuously defamed Bollywood film industry for the last couple of months as a hub of nepotism, favouritism, through her tweets from her official Twitter and TV interviews. "Right of speech and expression should not be construed as promoting communal disharmony".
