The Delhi Police have filed a first information report against Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg for her tweets on the farmers’ protest in India, NDTV reported on Thursday.
The FIR against Thunberg mentions charges under Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race) and Section 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, according to India Today.
In her first tweet, posted on Wednesday, Thunberg wrote: “We stand in solidarity with the farmers protest in India”. In another tweet on Thursday, she wrote: “Here’s an updated toolkit by people on the ground in India if you want to help. (They removed their previous document as it was outdated.)”
As news broke of the FIR against her, Thunberg on Thursday reiterated that she supported the farmers’ protests. “No amount of hate, threats or violations of human rights will ever change that,” she added.
