In a recent development, Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu has been booked by the Indore Police for allegedly hurting religious sentiments. A complaint was filed against the actress by a member of a right-wing group, who claimed that Taapsee’s social media posts were derogatory and offensive to a particular religious community.
The complaint stated that Taapsee’s comments on a particular issue were insensitive and derogatory, and could incite hatred and violence against a particular religious community. The police have registered a case against the actress under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deals with deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings.
According to reports, Taapsee had shared a picture on her Instagram account, which allegedly had a derogatory caption. The actress had also made some comments on the same issue, which the complainant found objectionable.
The Indore Police have started an investigation into the matter and have asked Taapsee to cooperate with them. The actress, however, is yet to respond to the allegations.
