How celebrities reacted to Farmers protests: How a handful of them speaking is not enough

The farmers' protests continue and it is but a grave concern for the country, for it not only affects them but should also be an alarm for the citizens.

Should we be asking how celebrities reacted to farmers protests, or how many of them reacted, instead? Bollywood, has always been far ahead in taking up social issues to their social media, and speak up. However, at this very moment, they may not be doing so, and there are no two ways about whether or not one should do it.

We live in a democracy, and so we have the freedom to speak up, but with that, also a moral responsibility. It takes on Sonu Sood, one Diljit Dosanjh, to simply put an issue on the map, and the people do the rest. While many have spoken up about the protest, and that means they simply stood up for a cause, don’t need to be given a medal for it. (Don’t mean to sound harsh, but cmon?) 

Here’s a run-through of how celebrities reacted to farmers protests and who did:

Celebrities like Sunny Deol, also politicized the issue, only to defend his party. He wrote, ”I request the whole world that it is a matter between our farmers and the government. Do not come between them, because both will find a way after discussions. I know that many people want to take advantage of the situation and are creating problems. They are not thinking of farmers. They may have their own agenda.

Diljit was among the first few to speak up, and he also got into a Twitter war with Kangana Ranaut. Among others, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, and others also reacted to the protests. While that does not have anything to do with how celebrities reacted to farmers protests, there’s more to do with how they should’ve spoken enough, and also earlier. The protests are a result of the three farm bills enacted by the centre earlier this year.
