Farmers Protest Hema Malini:

The Bollywood actor’s tweet comes after popular pop star Rihanna shared a tweet in support of ongoing India’s farmers’ protest. On 2nd February, the American singer tweeted: “Why aren’t we talking about this?!” 

Though the singer was applauded by many for her gesture globally, she also faced flak from a few. Among them is Kangana Ranaut, who didn’t hold back from expressing her thoughts on the same platform. In her reply to Rihanna’s tweet, the Bollywood actor addressed her as a “fool” and said, ” Sit down you fool, we are not selling”. Also, she called the protestors “terrorists who are trying to divide India”. 

Over a couple of days, several other foreign celebrities extended support to the people protesting against the Farm bill. Besides the pop icon, Lebanese-American former adult star Mia Khalifa, US Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece Meena Harris, Swedish environment activist Greta Thunberg, American Comedian Hasan Minaj also took to Twitter to show their support for the  protest.

“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,” her tweet read. 

The farmers have been protesting against the three new farm laws since October last year. Even after several rounds of talks between the central government and the farmers’ union, the matter is still unresolved. 

On Republic Day this year, the matter grew worse. Farmer’s conducted tractor rallies and revolted in the capital city. A farmer lost his life.
