Kannada Actor, Ramya faces sedition charges for praising Pakistan and saying “Pakistan not hell” after visiting the country for SAARC event.
Ramya referred to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s comment that “going to Pakistan is like going to hell” and said: “Pakistan is not hell. People, there are just like us. They treated us very well.”
Now she has been targeted by political activists as “anti-national” and a lawyer has filed a sedition case against her.
The case will be heard on Saturday.
She visited Islamabad for a meeting of young parliamentarians from SAARC or the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, a grouping of eight countries.
Sedition has been a hot debate lately in Karnataka, ever since a police case has been filed against amnesty international India for raising supportive slogans over Kashmir issue, where slogans of “Azadi” was raised.
