The climate kid Greta Thunberg caused unrest in India and has found herself under criminal investigation.
In India protestors have burned photos of the climate activist during a protest declaring that India will “not tolerate interference in internal affairs.”
Thunberg posted propaganda against the Indian government that supported small farmers that are in a legislative battle with the Indian government.
What landed Thunberg in hot waters was when she tweeted a document that included sample tweets people could share to draw attention to the farmer’s protests. She quickly deleted the the post and “updated” her comments without the document.
However, Delhi police are investigating the group behind the document for “conspiracy,” after a politician said it contained “evidence of International plans for attacks against India.”
From the Daily Mail:
Kapil Mishra, a member of Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), alleged that the document initially shared by Thunberg was evidence of international plans for ‘attacks’ against India.
Delhi police has launched a First Information Report (FIR) in connection with the toolkit.
“We haven’t named anybody in the FIR, it’s only against the creators of the toolkit which is a matter of investigation & Delhi Police will be investigating that case,’ Praveer Ranjan, special commissioner of police for Delhi said in response to earlier reports that the FIR had been launched against Thunberg herself.
“Preliminary enquiry has revealed that the toolkit in question appears to have been created by a pro-Khalistani Organization ‘Poetic Justice Foundation’, Ranjan said. The Poetic Justice Foundation is a far-left activist group in Canada.
The pop-star Rhianna has also been denounced by protesters however, she has did not go as far as Thunberg did and is not under criminal investigation.
More from the Daily Mail:
Rihanna’s tweet, which sent her name to the top of social media trends in India, sparked huge support around the world but also drew sharp criticism from some within India.
Thunberg and US Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece Meena Harris both tweeted in solidarity with the striking farmers within hours of Rihanna.
‘We ALL should be outraged by India’s internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters,’ wrote Harris, whose mother was born in India.
The India government released a statement that the Indian parliament did pass “reformist legislation relating to the agricultural sector” following a full debate and discussion and urged people to acquaint themselves with the fact of the issue “before rushing to comment on such matter.”
“The temptation of sensationalist social media hashtags and comments, especially when resorted to by celebrities and others, is neither accurate nor responsible,’ it added.
Many inside the country feel that outside influencers are trying to divide India.
