In her tweet, Ranaut called Banerjee a “triggered monster” and urged Modi to “tame her”.

Confirmed on Tuesday that Ranaut’s account had been suspended and Twitter explained its policy.
“We have been clear that we will take strong enforcement action against behaviors that have the potential to lead to offline harm.
“The account in question has been permanently suspended due to repeated violations of Twitter rules, specifically our policy of hateful behavior and policies of abuse.”
Ranaut, a winner of several national film awards, fought against Twitter’s action in a statement.
“Twitter has only proved my point. They are Americans, and at birth a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, ”she said.
“They will tell you what to think, speak or do, fortunately I have many platforms that I can use to raise my voice, including my own art in the form of cinema, but my heart goes out to the people of this nation , who have been tortured, enslaved and censored for thousands of years, and yet there is no end to the suffering. ”
