Why should we stop supporting the so-called farmers’ protest
Rather, it is unfortunate that by offering financial support, individuals like Dhaliwal and Amrik Singh literally encouraged protesters and rioters disguised as farmers, holding the nation to ransom in the name of protests against the central government’s agricultural laws. These people not only endorsed the violence in the name of supporting the “farmers” protests, but also stoked anti-national sentiments and fostered chaos by supporting false propaganda against India.
Since the agitation against agricultural laws began, these “protests” had taken a violent turn on several occasions. The following are just a few of the countless cases of violence perpetrated by these so-called farmers.
Lynching of Lakhbir Singh at the Kundli border
Although farmer leaders quickly distanced themselves from the incident, the recent brutal lynching of a Dalit man at the Singhu-Kundli border is a prime example of the infamous agenda of these “farmers” who have been camping for several months. now against the three agricultural laws.
The corpse of a severely mutilated man, whose hands were severed and his legs severed, has been hung over a police barricade, apparently by Nihang Sikhs for allegedly committing blasphemy. The victim has been identified as Lakhbir Singh, 35.

Prior to this grotesque incident, a 42-year-old village of Mukesh of Kasar in Bahadurgarh was burned alive in a farmers’ tent on the Tikri border by fellow farmers protesters on June 16, 2021. The villagers then alleged that the murder of Mukesh was a plot to portray him as a “martyr” against agricultural laws.
Lakhimpur violence case
On October 3, a mob of “farmers” attacked a BJP convoy with stones and sticks in Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh. Amid the ensuing commotion, a vehicle was seen driving over the protesters. As a result, the angry mob of protesters set two vehicles on fire, dragged the people inside the vehicle and beat them to death.
A total of eight people lost their lives in the violence. The incident has turned into a major political drama over the past two weeks.
Tikri border rape case
A 25-year-old woman who came from West Bengal to participate in the April 12 âfarmersâ protest was sexually assaulted at the protest site on the Tikri border. The victim who was later infected with the Covid-19 virus died in a private hospital in Bahadurgarh on April 30. Professional protester Yogendra Yadav, who was one of the pioneers of the ‘farmers’ protest, admitted on May 10 how he was aware of the sexual harassment suffered by the woman as well as its possible abduction by the culprits, but closed his eyes. Eventually, three âactivistâ farmers were arrested and confessed to the crime.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha who was demonstrating at the border also supported the demonstration.
The violence of the Republic Day
And, with regard to the violent attacks perpetrated by protesting “farmers”, the insurgency and unbridled violence that took place on the 26th.e January must be remembered.
On January 26, thousands of suspected farmers protesting recently enacted farm laws burst into Delhi for their tractor rally. They not only damaged public property and hoisted two flags with Sikh symbols on the Red Fort, but also injured several dozen police officers.
There were footage of one of the protesters throwing Tricolor while trying to hoist the alien flag. Protesters attempted in several places to shoot the police down with tractors. Police officers were attacked with lathis, stones, swords and other sharp weapons by protesters. RTI responses reveal that around 299 police officers were injured, which is lower than the actual number as some data has not been released due to the ongoing investigation.
Although, as usual, the bodies of the farmers âdistanced themselvesâ from the rioting crowd, they were seen implicitly inciting the âprotestersâ to prepare for violence.
Farmers’ protest ‘toolbox’ reveals global campaign to destabilize India
In fact, after the widespread violence on Republic Day, climate ecologist Greta Thunberg inadvertently exposed the grim global campaign against India after sharing a “toolkit” for those who wish to support the “protests of the farmers’ underway in the country.
At first glance, the document made it clear that this was not an organic wave of support but well-planned propaganda against the Indian government.
The document shared by Greta Thunberg listed a series of actions that people around the world could take to support the âfarmer protestsâ and also listed the actions that had been taken. The document also made it clear that global attempts to incite unrest in India began before the Republic Day riots.
In the âtoolboxâ several names were mentioned as reliable sources – some were media, others journalists and propagandists. The names of Indian media and journalists included The Wire, The Scroll, The NewsLaundry, AltNews, Faye D Souza and several other propagandists who supported the January 26 rioters and also disseminated false information regarding agricultural laws passed by the Modi government.
OpIndia had extensively explained how, according to documents leaked by Greta Thunberg, Rihanna and Greta’s tweets were by no means spontaneous and were planned by anti-Indian propagandists well in advance. We also reported on the violent track record of Greta Thunberg and the organizations she is associated with, which have supported the violent protests in India.
