The deluge of deluded international has-been stars, child-prodigy turned nuisance, and pornstars issuing sermons to the Indian government in the last 24 hours regarding the fake farmers’ protests, is the last throw of dice for the left-liberal cabal to bend the government according to its will. However, instead of cowering down, the Union government came up with a reply and held the mirror to these celebrities and asked them to gather some knowledge on the issue, rather than read one heavily biased article, million miles away from the ground reality and throw shade.
Indian government’s Ministry of External Affairs on Wednesday issued a statement where it called the concerned individuals to first research and understand the issue at hand before commenting on the same.
“Before rushing to comment on such matters, we would urge that the facts be ascertained, and a proper understanding of the issues at hand be undertaken. The temptation of sensationalist social media hashtags and comments, especially when resorted to by celebrities and others, is neither accurate nor responsible,” read the statement by MEA.

The official spokesperson of MEA, Anurag Srivastava said in the statement that the Parliament of India had passed the Agriculture Laws after a full debate and discussion. These reforms will give expanded market access, provide greater flexibility to farmers and pave the way for economically and ecologically sustainable farming.
NDA’s top brass leader and Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports, Kiren Rijuju also took to Twitter to call out the Jaichands of the country who were rejoicing the validation of the ‘foreigners’.
“For 1000 of years India was defeated, occupied, looted & ruled by the invaders not because India was weak but there was always a Jaichand. We need to ask who’s behind this international propaganda to defame India,” tweeted Rijiju.

It was curious to note that all these ‘part-time activists’ shared the same CNN link and round about the same time, suggesting that it was a well-coordinated attempt to malign the reputation of Indian government and PM Modi.
It was around 9 pm IST when Rihanna, the super popstar whose last album was released five years ago – showing just how flourishing a career she has been having of late, took to tweeting in support of the fake farmers. Sharing a CNN report, Rihanna remarked, “Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest?”

The internet ban which is being dubbed as the death of democracy and one of the core talking points by these paid influencers was only enacted in certain parts of New Delhi after the Khalistani elements masquerading as farmers had run amock in the streets of Delhi.
The likes of Greta, Rihanna, and Khalifa conveniently ignored that these same violent elements had turned the city upside down on Republic Day. None of them talked about the hundreds of police officers who exercised tremendous restraint in the face of vitriolic aggression and silently received the bruising.
MEA in its statement pointed out the violence that erupted on Republic Day and said that hundreds of men and women serving in the police had been physically attacked and in some cases stabbed and seriously wounded. “We would like to emphasise that these protests must be seen in the context of India’s democratic ethos and polity,” read the statement.
The left has lost its marbles and is now weaving the tried, tested formula of parachuting international celebs to bring attention to any issue. However, what they seem to have forgotten is the fact that Indian society has evolved and these child-like antics don’t work anymore. The hashtags might bring clout for some time but other than that, it will only remain the white noise amidst the commotion of the echo chamber that is Twitter and Facebook.
