Legal Notice to Swara Bhaskar for Defamatory Remarks Against BJP.
Addressing the press at an event organised by the Indian Women’s Press Corps on Saturday, Swara stated that people can be punished for their deeds, and not for their thoughts.
“It is a human tendency to have low thoughts. When Gandhi was killed in this country, there were people who celebrated his death; those people are now sitting in power. Will you put all those people in jail? Obviously, the answer is no,” she noted.
On 8th September 2018 Advocate Abhishek Raskar sent a legal notice to the actress claiming the statement to be defamatory against BJP stating that, “Those who celebrated Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination are in power today”, on behalf of a BJP member and Advocate Pradip H. Gavde.
The aggrieved party has demanded a retraction of her defamatory remarks and a written apology within 15 days and upon failure to do so the counsel for the aggrieved will institute a civil as well as criminal proceedings against her.
