farmers. Many people, including the Indian External Affairs Ministry, have criticized the famous singer Rihanna for having supported the Indian farmers, saying it is the internal affair of India.” Sandeep started his post.
“But by that logic, no one outside Germany should have criticized the persecution of the Jews in Germany during the Nazi era.” he continued and went on to write “By that logic no one outside Pakistan should criticism the persecution of Ahmadis, Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians in Pakistan.”
H further wrote “By that logic no one outside India should criticize the lynching and other atrocities on Muslims in India, or the massacre of Sikhs in 1984.” and said “By that logic nobody outside America should criticize racialism in several parts of America and bad treatment of blacks.”
“By that logic no one outside China should criticize the persecution of the Uighur Muslim minority in China. By that logic no one outside South Africa should have condemned apartheid and denial of the right to vote to blacks in South Africa when apartheid was prevailing. By that logic no one outside Burma should have criticized the persecution of Rohingyas in Burma. After all, these were all internal affairs of those countries” his post read.
The cricketer concluded his post by writing “By this logic no one should care about each other because every situation is someone’s internal affair.” as his caption. Check out his post below :
