On 29 October, a Mumbai court had ordered an inquiry against Kangana Ranaut Rangoli for allegedly posting derogatory tweets against Muslims.

In the complaint Deshmukh alleged that Rangoli Chandel had posted objectionable comments against members of Tablighi Jamaat on her social media account on 15 April. Following this, her account was suspended by Twitter.
Deshmukh had also alleged that Kangana Ranaut supported her sister. He claimed in his complaint that the actor had posted a short video on 18 April on social media platforms, calling Jamaatis terrorists. “Thus, both the accused posted hateful and derogatory statements against [the] Muslim community,” the complaint said.
