Recently, Raveena Tandon Farah Khan and Bharti Singh were booked by the Punjab Police for hurting religious sentiments of the Christian community on a television show.
“We received a complaint against actor Raveena Tandon, comedian Bharti Singh, and director-producer, Farah Khan, claiming they hurt sentiments of the Christian community, during a television show. They have been booked,” Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Sohan Singh said.
Now the actress has clarified about her statement and denied all the allegations by clearly taking her stance on Twitter.
Raveena offered an apology on Twitter and wrote, “Please do watch this link. I haven’t said a word that can be interpreted as an insult to any religion. The three of us (Farah Khan, Bharti Singh and I) never intended to offend anyone, but in case we did, my most sincere apologies to those who were hurt.”.
The actor also attached the video clip from the episode of Farah Khan’s show - Back Benchers which streams on Flipkart Video.
The video features Farah acting as the teacher as she asks Raveena Tandon and Bharti Singh to spell the word ‘hallelujah’. Meanwhile, Farah and Bharti are yet to react to the same.
The reports in PTI suggests that the trio has been booked under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) which pertains to “malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings by insulting religion or religious beliefs”.
