Many cricketers have taken to social media in support of a recent statement made by the Ministry of External Affairs of India. The statement was primarily targeted at the tweets made by foreign celebrities on the farmers’ protest in the country.
It never takes too long for Bollywood actress Kangana Raunaut to surround herself in a sea of controversy. She took a harsh dig at Rohit Sharma regarding his tweet on the matter.
In her tweet, the Tanu Weds Manu actress referred to Indian cricketers as “dhobi ka kutta”.
“Why all these cricketers sounding like dhobi ka kutta na ghar ka na ghat ka? Why would farmers be against laws which are revolutionary for their well-being. These are terrorists who are causing ruckus. Say that na…itna daarr lagta hai?” she wrote on Twitter.
This tweet was later removed by the social media website. In a statement, it said, “We have taken action on Tweets that were in violation of the Twitter rules in line with our range of enforcement options.”
Rohit had expressed his views on the matter, pointing towards the fact that a solution needed to be found.
“India has always been stronger when we all stand together and finding a solution is the need of the hour. Our farmers play an important role in our nation’s well being and I am sure everyone will play their roles to find a solution TOGETHER,” he had tweeted.

Earlier, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs had said it didn’t want foreign celebrities to enter a domain that they didn’t understand. It claimed that these individuals were trying to impose their agenda through this support.
“The urge to sensationalize hashtags and comments on social media, especially by celebrities and others, is neither correct nor responsible,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
