by Shatakshi Gupta

The Twitter account of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has been suspended permanently. The profile was not opened on Tuesday afternoon after searching her name on Twitter, while it was written that the Twitter account has been suspended. It was also written that those who violate the rules of Twitter, their account will be suspended.

The actress did some indecent tweets before her Twitter account was suspended. These tweets are being pointed out against the rules of the microblogging site. In a series of tweets, she wrote about the alleged violence in West Bengal after the election results.

 Kangana had raised the demand for imposing President’s rule in Bengal in her tweets. By the way, it is also being said that Kangana had used objectionable words for Mamata Banerjee. Apart from this, she had also verbally attacked Shiv Sena. In such a situation, it is understood that the micro-blogging platform took action on her account about these statements of Kangana.

 The account has been suspended for violating the hate behaviour policy and abusive behaviour policy.

What did Twitter say on this?

As per the micro-blogging site, she made several posts about the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress victory over the BJP in West Bengal and the post-election violence.  Seeking President’s rule in the state, the actress blamed Banerjee for the violence and addressed her with names that cannot be published.

Twitter said in a statement, “We have been clear that we will take strict enforcement action on the behaviour that is expected to cause harm offline.”

The spokesman said the referenced account has been permanently closed for repeated violations of Twitter rules, especially our hate behaviour policy and abusive policy. He said we apply Twitter rules to all judiciously and impartially.

According to Twitter’s policy, individuals should not target and torture or provoke others to persecute, threaten or attempt to silence or silence the voice of others.

What Kangana has said after suspension?

On the other hand, Kangana has said on the action, “ Twitter has only proved my point that they are American and by birth, a white person deserves to be enslaved to a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do. I have several other platforms that I can use to raise my voice, including my own art as a cinema.  But my heart goes out to those in this country who have been tortured, enslaved and censored for thousands of years, and yet, there is no end to sorrow.”
