With International stars and personalities giving it a larger voice, the protest being conducted by the Farmers against the central government has got a whole new dimension. After pop superstar Rihanne, Climate change activist Greta Thunberg created a storm in social media. US Vice president Kamal Harris’s niece Meena Harris and former adult star Mia Khalifa also showed support posting tweets reacting to the agitation.
In a series of tweets uploaded, Meena Harris expressed her anger over the “internet shut downs and paramilitary violence against farmer protests”, and shared an image of a woman farmer with a placard that said “stop killing farmers”.
“It’s no coincidence that the world’s oldest democracy was attacked not even a month ago, and as we speak, the most populous democracy is under assault. This is related. We ALL should be outraged by India’s internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters.” read one of the tweets of Meena Harris.

Popular adult star and international icon Mia Khalifa condemned the Indian government for violating the human rights by tweeting “What in the human rights violations is going on?! They cut the internet around New Delhi?! #FarmersProtest”
It all started when popular pop superstar Rihanne shared an article regarding the protest with a caption saying “why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest”
Followed by her, Greta Thuberg uploaded a tweet supporting the protest being conducted by the Farmers of India. “We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India.” Greta’s tweet read.
While many Internet using Indians are welcoming the support farmers receiving from across the world, some people wants no outsiders to opine on the agitations that are taking place in country India. Actress Kangana Ranaut openly termed farmers as “terrorists” and called Rihanna as “fool” through one of her several tweets against the pop singer.
Now, to our shock, Sachin Tendulkar who is termed as the “God” of world cricket, came up with a tweet denoting that no foreigners should intervene in the politics of India. He said that external forces can be spectators but not participants. The cricketer also believed that Indians know India and should decide for India and influenced his millions of followers to be united as a nation.
“India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. External forces can be spectators but not participants. Indians know India and should decide for India. Let’s remain united as a nation. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda” sachin’s tweet read.

Indians know India. Then please tell us what you think about the farmers' protests. Or will you tweet on that also only when you get a tweet-draft from above?— Tejas Harad (@h_tejas) February 3, 2021
