After a Facebook post by Karnataka IPS officer D. Roopa Moudgil, supporting the government's decision to impose a ban on firecrackers during Diwali, led to a war of words with a Twitter handle, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has stepped in support of the handle. In her series of tweets in support of the Twitter handle 'True Indology' , Ranaut said that a police officer like her is shame in the name of the force.
"She should be suspended from the force," her tweet read. In a tweet on November 14, Roopa had shared her Facebook post stating that bursting firecrackers was not part of the Hindu tradition as there was no mention of it in the religious scriptures . This had led to a war of words between the officer and the Twitter user, followed by vicious trolling of the IPS officer by those opposing the ban. #IPSRoopa #KanganaRanaut #Karnataka
