Kangana Ranaut’s sister, Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter account was suspended by the social media platform on Thursday, 16 April, for violation of rules. According to reports, her account was suspended after she posted controversial, hate-inciting tweets regarding the Moradabad stone-pelting incident.

Filmmaker Reema Kagti had asked the Mumbai Police to take action against one of Rangoli’s tweets on the grounds that that it spread fake news and incited hatred. She tweeted, “@MumbaiPolice. Could you please look into this and take action? Isn’t this spreading fake news AND inciting hatred & violence against certain people?@OfficeofUT @AUThackeray.”

Soon after, actor Kubbra Sait shared Reema’s tweet and said that she had blocked and reported Rangoli’s account to Twitter. “I’ve blocked Rangoli and reported her to twitter.
But @MumbaiPolice @CMOMaharashtra @OfficeofUT This kind of hate-mongering is irresponsible. Please look into it, and take necessary actions,” Kubbra tweeted.

After the suspension of the account, jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali thanked Twitter for the same and said that she too had reported the account. “Thank you @Twitter @TwitterIndia @jack for suspending this account. I reported this because she targeted a specific community and called for them to be shot along with liberal media and compared herself to the Nazis,” wrote Farah.
