Sachin Tendulkar – Tweet Controversy

Monday, February 8th, 2021

When the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar tweeted, “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. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda,” a great controversy had been created that he supports the government and not the suffering farmers. We are not here to discuss whether he is right or not! His tweet came after an 18-year-old social activist, Greta Thunberg supported the farmers’ protest in India. Just a tweet changed the legendary cricketer’s fame.

There was a time when people watched cricket for Sachin. After this tweet, many people started offending Sachin and put status like, “I was a Sachin fan,” “Sachin bats for government” and so on. Along with Sachin, Kangana Ranaut, Akshay Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Suniel Shetty were also framed. Whatever be the controversies surrounding him, Sachin didn’t revoke his statement so far and hadn’t deleted the tweet.
