A local court in Ludhiana has issued an arrest warrant against Rakhi for allegedly making remarks against Valmiki.
The Queen of controversy Rakhi Sawant is back again and this time with an 'epic' reason.
Denying the charges against her for allegedly making objectionable remarks against sage Valmiki, Rakhi said, unlike Salman Khan, she is an innocuous person, who believes in doing social work.
"I am not Salman Khan, I am Rakhi Sawant. You won't get anything by putting charges on me. I am a simple girl who does social work and work in movies," she added, donning a fluorescent ' Being Human' t-shirt.
For the unversed, a local court in Ludhiana has issued an arrest warrant against Rakhi for allegedly making seditious remarks against Valmiki, who wrote the mythological Hindu epic ' Ramayana'.
Talking about the same, the 38-year-old actress said that she used the example of Valmiki's change of soul to explain the change in her friend and singer Mika Singh, when he was accused in an assault case.
"I just gave an example from what I have read in my childhood. Just like Valmiki, who got changed from being a robber to a saint, Mika ji also has changed. It was just an example," she said.
Reportedly, a warrant was released against her on the basis of a charge filed against her for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of the Valmiki community with her remarks.
"When she was asked about the warrant, Rakhi defied it by stating, "I did not get any notice or summon in regard to the warrantee. I too came to know from the media this morning that the police is coming to catch me, because allegedly I said something wrong against sage Valmiki. I honor him and Valmiki community a great deal. I don't know why I am being targeted," she stated.
Adding, "When I received the news, I initially considered it was an April Fool trick. I don't know why I am being targeted. May be because I belong to the film industry, I am an easy target."
In the end, she concluded her account by saying, "Through ANI, I desire to apologize to all the Valmiki community brothers and sisters, if I have hurt their sentiment. But this wasn't my intention."
