Lebanese-American media personality Mia Khalifa has left no stone unturned when it comes to extending her support to the Indian farmers as they continue to protest in Delhi. Despite immense backlash and death threats, Mia is standing strong for the farmers and is even urging people to join her and support them.
While international stars and celebrities including Rihanna and John Cusack have been rallying for the farmers, Bollywood celebrities have chosen to either remain silent on the matter or act as a government mouthpiece. Mia recently questioned Priyanka Chopra’s silence on the matter, saying that it reminded her of “Shakira during the Beirut devastation.”
Taking to Twitter, Khalifa wrote: “Is Mrs Jonas going to chime in at any point? I’m just curious. This is very much giving me Shakira during the Beirut devastation vibes. Silence.”
Khalifa even shared a plate full of food on her Twitter timeline to highlight the importance of farmers, asserting that there will be no food without farmers.
It is pertinent to add here that Chopra, in December 2020, had tweeted that farmers are “India’s food soldiers”.
“Their fears need to be allayed. Their hopes need to be met,” the actor had said.
