MUMBAI: Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut has finally addressed the situation of her sister Rangoli Chandel's account being suspended on Twitter and spoken in her defence. She has said that she and her sister, both will be ready to make apologies if any further tweets by Rangoli are aimed towards a certain community. The actress has also appealed to the Government of India to "demolish" the social networking site of Twitter and make other kinds of indigenous platforms.
A tweet made by Rangoli regarding the recent violent incident that happened in Moradabad was reported by Reema Kangti, the filmmaker and designer Farah Khan Ali. While reporting the tweet, both of them also tagged the Mumbai Police's official Twitter handle in their own separate tweets. They asked them to arrest Chandel. Kangana has mentioned that the two women made a 'false claim' against her sister.
Farah Ali has now responded to Kangana and mentioned that the tweet made by ger sister was apparently of the communal nature and also dangerous, "My dear Kangana, Let me begin by saying I’m a huge fan and you’re an amazing Actress."
She continued, "I have nothing personal against Rangoli or you and have even met Rangoli in the past where she came across sweet. She has been an acid victim and now a social activist so should be more responsible with her tweets. She should inspire all who have lost hope to have hope. She should lead by example. Spewing hatred towards a community and calling for them to be killed for the acts of few is unacceptable. I do hope she sees her error and realises that she has the social and moral responsibility of so much more than just being your sister. God bless you both. May peace be upon you and our country at large."
As far as Rangoli is concerned, she said that she will not try to get her account revived, she instead said, "I am not reviving my account, I was my sister’s spokesperson now watch out for her direct interviews, she is a huge star she has many ways of reaching out, a biased platform can be easily avoided."
