Kangana Ranaut, an acclaimed actress and a Hindu right-winger, faced a suspension on micro-blogging site Twitter after she made a reference and also promoted a two-decade-old Gujarat massacre.
Ranaut, who was responding to alleged attacks on BJP workers carried out in West Bengal, crossed the line on the social media site by calling for retributional killings.
“We need super gundai to kill gundai … she is like unleashed monster, to tame her Modiji please show your viraat roop from early 2000’s … #PresidentRuleInBengal,” Ranaut tweeted, following which she was suspended by Twitter.
The tweet was a reference to the massacre in 2002 when hundreds of Muslims were killed by mobs in Gujarat, where Modi was the Chief Minister.
Ranaut has frequently courted controversies in recent years as she became a vocal supporter of Hindu right-wing causes. “Ranaut’s account was permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules,” said the Twitter spokesperson
