It’s no coincidence that the world’s oldest democracy was attacked not even a month ago, and as we speak, the most populous democracy is under assault. This is related. We ALL should be outraged by India’s internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters. https://t.co/yIvCWYQDD1 pic.twitter.com/DxWWhkemxW— Meena Harris (@meenaharris) February 2, 2021

Many British Columbians come from farming families in India & it's been stressful for them to witness reaction to farmers' peaceful protests. I understand their anguish & hope everyone is safe. I strongly believe in the democratic process & hope a peaceful solution is found soon.— John Horgan (@jjhorgan) February 1, 2021
It is important that the world stand in solidarity with Indian farmers!— Jamie Margolin (@Jamie_Margolin) February 2, 2021
Farmers are on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Without farmers, there is no food.

not some of these bollywood actors or industry folk, residing in the same country, claiming to be the same citizens of the same nation, often presenting themselves to be the very same people protesting.
However Bollywood remained quiet on the issue:
