NEW YORK, USA—Today, the entire pro-Modi lobby in India including Godi media and Bollywood celebrities came on toes after International pop-star Rihanna shared a news story about the seizure of internet services by the Indian government at farmers’ protest site in Delhi. Rihanna also shared the hashtag #FarmersProtest while posing a question that why they aren’t talking about this.

Robyn Rihanna Fenty, a Barbadian singer, actor, and businesswoman has a huge fan following amounting to 101.1 million on Twitter. Within few hours, the effect of her tweet on farmers’ agitation in India started becoming visible when other noted International figures like Greta Thunberg also started tweeting in support of farmers’ agitation.

In this way, Rihanna’s tweet helped the farmers of India in projecting their plight internationally.
Pro-Modi Lobby on Toes
As soon as Rihanna’s tweet started circulating over social media in Indian circles, the pro-Modi lobby including Godi media and celebrities like Kangana Ranaut came on toes to hit out at Rihanna.
No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA…
Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies. https://t.co/OIAD5Pa61a

Re-tweeting Rihanna’s tweet, Kangana called her fool and dubbed protesting farmers as terrorists trying to divide India.
Interestingly, other Bollywood celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan also emerged out this time to oppose Rihanna’s tweet while dubbing her tweet as a false propaganda against India.
Farmers constitute an extremely important part of our country. And the efforts being undertaken to resolve their issues are evident. Let’s support an amicable resolution, rather than paying attention to anyone creating differences. 🙏🏻#IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda https://t.co/LgAn6tIwWp

Going one step ahead, the Godi media started cooking non-sense stories relating Rihanna with Khalistan ideology.
To prove Rihanna pro-Khalistani, the Godi media shared the tweet of Canada’s NDP leader Jagmeet Singh in which he has thanked Rihanna for uplifting the voices of the oppressed.
