A Ludhiana court today once again issued non-bailable warrant against actor Rakhi Sawant for making derogatory remarks against sage Valmiki, the author of the epic Ramayana.
This is the second time an arrest warrant has been issued against the 38-year-old actor for hurting the religious sentiments of the Valmiki community.
In April, the same court in Punjab had issued the warrant after the actress failed to appear before it on March 9.
The actor, during a show, had drawn a comparison between Valmiki and singer Mika Singh regarding their behavioural transformation from evil to good. This invited a backlash from the Valmiki

"I think people are forcefully dragging me under bad light to ruin my career. I did not say anything wrong to hurt anyone's sentiment. Even then, I made an apology video and uploaded it online," Rakhi had told news agency  in April.
"I am as fearless as the Rani of Jhansi and I will fight against all those people who are dragging me in controversy," she had said.
The actor had, however, also apologised for hurting the religious sentiments of the Valmiki community. "I just gave an example of Valmiki ji that I have been reading in books since childhood... I didn't want to hurt anybody's sentiments," she said.
