FIR against Indian actress for her remarks on controversial ‘Kashmir Files’

Hyderabad (India), June 17 (KMS): A Bajrang Dal activist has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against a south Indian actress Sai Pallavi at the Sultan Bazaar police station in the Indian city of Hyderabad, accusing her of making derogatory comments against Hindus and Kashmiri Pandits on a YouTube channel.

Indian media reported that the Bajrang Dal activist Akhil stated in his complaint that actress Pallavi, during a recent interview, had commented negatively on gau rakshaks (cow vigilantes).

“We are verifying the video and will be taking legal opinion,” said Sultan Bazaar inspector P Padma.

The complainant also stated that “the actress’ comments had hurt the sentiments of animal lovers whom she compared with Kashmiri “extremists”.

Pallavi while condemning violence in the name of religion had compared the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits with cow vigilantism in an interview to YouTube channel Great Andhra.

“The Kashmir Files showed how Kashmiri Pandits were killed at the time. If you are taking the issue as a religious conflict, there was an instance recently where a Muslim was attacked when he was driving a vehicle carrying cows, and people chanted Jai Shri Ram. So where is the difference from what happened then and what is happening now?,” the actor had commented.
