Indira crushed them like mosquitoes : Sikh outfit files case against Kangana Ranaut for insulting remarks

Akali Dal leader Mahinder Singh Sirsa has filed a police complaint against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut for a controversial Instagram post that glorified former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as someone who made 'Khalistanis' shiver in terror as she had "crushed them like mosquitoes". In her post, Ranaut had obliquely painted the farmer's protest as one spearheaded by Khalistanis which the Sikh community objected to.

"Filed a Police Complaint agnst KanganaRanaut for her disrespectful, contemptuous & insulting post on Instagram for calling whole Sikh Community as Khalistani terrorists & by saying that PM Indira Gandhi had crushed them as mosquitoes," Sirsa tweeted, along with a copy of the complaint.H

"Her personal hatred against Sikhs have been evident in her earlier posts. Now when the Farm Laws are repealed, she is bringing back 1984 reference to provoke Sikhs by saying that they are terrorists and were crushed earlier as mosquitoes under the jooti of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and deserves the same treatment as met out to them at the time of Smt Indira Gandhi," the complaint from the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Committee reads. Sirsa is president of the association.

Ranaut's latest Instagram post is one of several in which she has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for walking back on his promise to implement the farm laws. The revoking of the laws follows months of protests by farming communities across India.

"Khalistani terrorists may be arm twisting the government today. But let's not forget one woman. The only woman prime minister crushed them under her shoe. Nomatter how much suffering she caused to this nation she crushed them like mosquitoes at the cost of her own life...even today, they shiver at her name, they need a guru like her," Ranauts post reads.

It is speculated that Ranaut's move may also be to drum up publicity for an upcoming movie based on the events of the 1976 Emergency period which was under the reign of Indira Gandhi.
