Actor-turned-politician Ramya has landed in a controversy after praising Pakistan, by saying that the latter is not a hell. No sooner did she say this, that her nationality was questioned. On Tuesday, a sedition case has reportedly been filed by a lawyer against the Congress leader in Kodagu, Karnataka. While this has become quite a topic for debate, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that if she is being booked for sedition because she praised Pakistan, then what about Prime Minister Narendra Modi who visited the country to wish Nawaz Sharif.

Kejriwal in Hindi tweeted that if a complaint has been filed against Ramya for simply praising Pakistan, then what about PM Modi who visited his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. He also questioned the instance when Pakistan’s ISI team was called to probe the Pathankot attack.

The 33-year old Kannada film star in response to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement that “going to Pakistan is same as going to hell” said that people like us live there, and it is not a hell. While she is trending on Twitter today, other social media platforms too are taking sides after a “sedition” case was filed against her.

In a conversation with NDTV, she also said, “I will not apologise as I have done nothing wrong. I am entitled to my views and that is what democracy is about.”
