Bathinda, January 8
Mohinder Kaur has filed a case against Kangana Ranaut in a district court in Bathinda.
This comes after the 73-year-old woman made headlines when Kangana shared a picture of her, claiming that she was the same ‘dadi’ who was a part of the Shaheen Bagh protest.
The case has been filed in the court of duty magistrate, Chief Judicial Magistrate, Bathinda. The hearing is fixed for January 11, 2021.
In the complaint filed by advocate Raghubir Singh, Mohinder Kaur stated, that because of the misleading post on the microblogging website, by the accused Kangana, she is suffering from grave mental tension, agony, harassment, humiliation, loss of reputation and defamation in the eyes of her family, members, relative, co-villagers, and public in-large.
She, further, claimed that due to “scandalous” allegation, she has fallen in the eyes of the other farmers—who are sitting in the agitation—as they have started to inquire about the matter.
It also stated that Kangana has not issued an apology on social media to her, and the other farmers. Kangana shared the “false tweet”, without any reasonable or probable cause. This was only to please the political higher-ups of the ruling BJP party.
She claimed, that she and her entire family are farmers. They are dependent on agriculture for their livelihood. This is why they are supporting the farmers from day one against the farm laws.
She had gone to Delhi to support farmers.
In conversation with The Tribune, Mohinder Kaur’s husband, Labh Singh said: “We have filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut in court in Bathinda, and the hearing is fixed on January 11”.
Earlier, a Chandigarh-based advocate, Hakam Singh, had sent a legal notice to the actor for mistaking an elderly woman participating in the rally to be the one famous for Shaheen Bagh protests, and claiming she was ‘available for Rs 100’ to protest.
Sharing a photo of the woman in the farmer’s protest, Kangana had tweeted: “Ha Ha she is the same Dadi who had featured in Time Magazine for being the most powerful woman. And she is available for 100 rupees.”
