Delhi Police has booked the 18-year-old activist Greta Thunberg with Section 153A and Section 120B. That alleges an overseas “conspiracy” and an attempt to “promote enmity between groups”.
The action against Thunberg comes a day after the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said that resorting to sensationalist social media hashtags and comments, especially by celebrities and known public figures, is neither accurate nor responsible.
Soon after the news of FIR registered against her, Greta Thunberg doubled down on her views with a new tweet: “I still #StandWithFarmers and support their peaceful protest. No amount of hate, threats or violations of human rights will ever change that. #FarmersProtest.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Greta Thunberg had tweeted “We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India,” on Tuesday, replying to a CNN news report: “India cuts internet around New Delhi as protesting farmers clash with police.” She also shared “a toolkit for those who want to help”.
