In his complaint filed with the Lakshadweep capital Kavaratti police on Wednesday, Khader said Sultana had made serious allegations against the central government during a debate on a Malayalam TV channel. Ayesha made a false allegation against the central government saying, ‘Covid-19 is being used as a biological weapon by the central government in Lakshadweep’.
The BJP leader has also alleged in his complaint that this statement of Ayesha is completely anti-national, thereby tarnishing the image of the central government. Therefore, strict action should be taken against Ayesha so that this does not happen again. The BJP leader held protests in the islands demanding action against the filmmaker. Significantly, Ayesha, a model, director and actress based in Lakshadweep, has worked with many Malayalam filmmakers. Sultana hails from Chetiyath Island in Lakshadweep.
