Sachin Tendulkar and Gautam Gambhir voiced their opinions on the ongoing farmers’ protest on Wednesday, saying that “external forces can be spectators”.

Their comments came after the Ministry of External Affairs reacted sharply to tweets by pop star Rihanna and climate activist Greta Thunberg on the protests.

Rihanna, who has 100 million followers on Twitter, on Tuesday posted, “Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest,” linking a CNN report.

Tendulkar, the highest run-scorer in all formats of cricket, called for the country to remain united in times of distress. “India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. External forces can be spectators but not participants. Indians know India and should decide for India. Let’s remain united as a nation,” he wrote on Twitter.

His former dressing-room colleague and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir, said India will continue to thrive no matter what. “Outside forces have been trying to divide us, rule over us for centuries. But India remains & will thrive come what may! Use your billions, try your best! This is the New India,” he posted.
