In a viral TikTok clip posted in December, Ms Singh urged her massive global fan base to “Stop!” and get informed about the “largest human protest in history” in India.
“I’ve been talking a lot about farmers’ protest happening in India. Long story short, farmers are protesting new agriculture bills that affect their livelihood and they have been peacefully protesting but have not met with not so peaceful responses,” Ms Singh had said, extending her support to the ongoing farmers’ agitation in India.
