A week ago, Sonakshi took to her Instagram stories to share a post made by an account named storysellercomics that explained that Rihanna and environmentalist Greta Thunberg's tweets on farmers protest. It highlighted human right violations. "The voices raised are about the violation of human rights, suppressions of free internet and expression, state propaganda, hate speech and abuse of power," the post read, the one shared by Sonakshi Sinha.
“Nazarein milake,khud se pooch-kyun? A tribute to the hands that feed us….A beautiful poem written by Varadbhatnagar. Shot and conceptualized by Gursanjam.S.Puri and narrated by Sonakshi Sinha for the FARMERS.
Sonakshi Sinha's Instagram stories came a little after several Bollywood celebrities including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Suniel Shetty, Karan Johar, cricketers Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar among others tweeted in support.
Journalists are being harassed. Internet has been banned. Protesters are being vilified through state and media propaganda. Hate speech (desh ke gaddaro ko, goli maro sardaro ko resurfaced) is flourishing. THAT is the issue that's taken global center stage.
