Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Hussain Chaudhry and Special Assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan Zulfi Bukhari have praised Barbadian singer Rihanna Fenty after she tweeted about the farmers’ protest in India.
Rihanna spoke in favour of Indian farmers. She shared an article on violence against farmers on her Twitter account and questioned why it’s not spoken about enough.
As soon as Rihanna’s tweet came to light, the BJP(Bharatiya Janata Party) supporters got instigated to raise their voice.
Soon after her tweet Rihanna became a top trend on social media in India. Her post had garnered over 75k retweets and 139k likes in about 2 hours.
Narendra Modi-supporting Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, while replying to Rihanna, termed the peasant protesters as terrorists and said that these peasants want to divide India so that China can occupy India.
On the other hand, Fawad Chaudhry and Zulfi Bukhari lauded Rihanna and paid her huge respect for supporting farmers protest.
Zulfi Bukhari wrote, “Well said & well done. That’s because they’ve blocked all credible media in India. Not just with the farmers but also with the oppressed Kashmiris.”
The federal minister said, “You have earned the respect of every Farmer of the world and particularly of #Punjabis all around the world you have shown your heart is on the right place…. loads if respect”
