Telangana HC refuses to set aside police notice against Sai Pallavitext_fields
Hyderabad: Actor Sai Pallavi's plea seeking to squash a notice issued by Hyderabad police over her remarks on the film Kashmiri Files has been dismissed by the Telangana High Court.
The actor's remark on the film courted controversy after her comparison of Kashmir terrorists to cow vigilantes during an interview was taken in a wrong sense.
Pallavi's plea said that in the absence of a specific reason on how her remark was offended the petitioner and what the complaint was about, the police notice against her should be considered to be based on a malicious compliant and should be set aside.
Sultanbazar police in Hyderabad acted upon a complaint from a Bajrang Dal activist who alleged that by comparing Kashmiri terrorists with the cow protectors, the actor offended the sentiments of people.
During the interview, Sai Pallavi had talked about The Kashmir Files and had said that Kashmiri Pandit exodus and the recent incidents of lynching of suspected cow smugglers are both wrong, and that violence of any kind should be condemned.
Recently, there was an incident of a person being killed for carrying a cow because he was suspected to be a Muslim. After killing the person, the attackers raised 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans. Where is the difference between what happened in Kashmir and what happened recently?"
