The majority of people belonging to different fields on Wednesday came together and presented a united front against Hollywood pop-star Rihanna's tweet. From cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar to India's captain Virat Kohli everyone came together and cautioned the people on social media to stand against the external forces. 

Sachin Tendulkar on his Twitter wrote, "India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. External forces can be spectators but not participants. Indians know India and should decide for India. Let's remain united as a nation."

While Virat Kohli wrote, "Let us all stay united in this hour of disagreements. Farmers are an integral part of our country and I'm sure an amicable solution will be found between all parties to bring about peace and move forward together. "

Not only cricketers, but Bollywood celebrities also joined  #IndiaTogether and #IndiaAgainstPropaganda trends on social media. However, a famous cricketer does not share the same view with all the celebrities and cricketers. Sandeep Sharma who hails from Punjab plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sharma took Twitter and shared a long note on the Ministry of External Affairs statement. 

Sandeep took to Twitter and wrote, "By this logic no one should care about each other because every situation is someone’s internal affair."

In the long note shared by Sandeep Sharma, he wrote, "Many people, including the Indian External Affairs Ministry, have criticized the famous singer Rihanna for having supported the Indian farmers, saying it is the internal affair of India."

"But by that logic, no one outside Germany should have criticized the persecution of the Jews in Germany during the Nazi era. By that logic, no one outside Pakistan should criticism the persecution of Ahmadis, Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians in Pakistan. By that logic no one outside India should criticize the lynching and other atrocities on Muslims in India, or the massacre of Sikhs in 1984.”

“By that logic nobody outside America should criticize racialism in several parts of America and bad treatment of blacks. By that logic no one outside China should criticize the persecution of the Uighur Muslim minority in China. By that logic no one outside South Africa should have condemned apartheid and denial of the right to vote to blacks in South Africa when apartheid was prevailing. By that logic no one outside Burma should have criticized the persecution of Rohingyas in Burma."

“After all, these were internal affairs of those countries,” he concluded.
