Uorfi supported the gay community and told Sadhguru’s followers to unfollow the actress immediately.
Through her Instagram story, Uorfi shared a small snippet of Sadhguru’s speech in which he made an alleged “no need for an LGBTQ campaign.” Uorfi was visibly irritated by his opinion and endorsed it: “Anyone who follows this cult leader please unfollow me. According to him, LGBTQ is actually a campaign. Rightly so, because the mentioned people involved in the campaign can talk freely and loudly about their sexuality.”
“The percentage of the LGBTQ community is not small, but guess what. Your brain is. Such propaganda should not be encouraged. The LGBTQ community needs our support. For centuries, people have been forced to hide their sexuality. Pretend you’re someone else. We need campaigns. Parades to tell everyone it’s okay to be yourself. It doesn’t matter who you love. You have been accepted,” she added in another story.

Uorfi Javed’s chatter with BJP leader Chitra Kishor Wagh takes a new turn when the actress files a complaint with the police.
The duo’s controversy erupted when Chitra and the female BJP state cell chief had earlier called for Uorfi’s arrest for “indulging in public nudity on the streets of Mumbai”. Javed on Friday (Jan 13) moved the Maharashtra Women’s Commission against Wagh. Uorfi said these comments incited attacks against her and met Women’s Committee chairperson Rupali Chakankar at her office.
The actress’s lawyer, Nitin Satpute, told India Today: “Our complaint against Wagh is for threatening Urfi Javed. Any member of the ruling party who threatens a person means that the government is supporting her threat. These comments could harm Javed We will also approach the Mumbai Police to get a restraining order against Wagh for not making any further comments about Javed.”
