A Bajrang Dal activist on Thursday filed a First Information Report (FIR) against a south Indian actress Sai Pallavi at the Sultan Bazaar police station, accusing her of making derogatory comments against Hindus and Kashmiri Pandits on a YouTube channel, reported Deccan Chronicle.

Bajrang Dal activist Akhil stated in his complaint that actress Pallavi, during a recent interview, had commented negatively on gau rakshaks. “We are verifying the video and will be taking legal opinion,” said Sultan Bazaar inspector P. Padma.

Police sources revealed, as per the report, 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.

In a statement, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson N.V. Subhash said ‘The Kashmir Files’ was about “genocide against the Kashmir Pandits”, and that “the actress had no knowledge of Indian history and culture except acting as instructed by directors in the film industry”.

Condemning Pallavi’s comments, Subhash said cow slaughter was banned in India and it appeared that she had no knowledge of this matter.
