Actor-cum-politician Ramya was accused of ‘sedition’ over her comments praising Pakistan after a recent visit.
The 33 year old actor Ramya whose real name is Divya Spandana, and MP of Karnataka has been attacked on social media. A lawyer filed a ‘sedition’ case in Kodagu in South Karnataka.
Advocate K. Vittal Gowda filed a private complaint under Section 200 of Cr.Pc in the first JMFC court in Somwarpet on Monday, accusing Ramya of “insulting India” and “provoking the people of India” by “appreciating Pakistan, which is a traditional enemy of India.” The complainant urged the court to register a case against the actor under Sections 124A of the IPC, which deals with sedition, besides other charges. Judge Shyam Prakash posted the hearing of the case to August 27. She visited Islamabad as part of a SAARC delegation of young lawmakers said that ‘Pakistan is not hell. People there are just like us. They treated us very well’.
