Amid the standoff between India and China, Bollywood actor Sonu Sood-- also known as 'Migrant Messiah' - had the perfect response to Aakar Patel's suggestion of sending 'Chinese back home safely.'
As COVID-19 lockdown left thousands of migrant labourers stranded, Bollywood actor Sonu Sood came to their rescue and emerged as the man of the moment by arranging buses for them to reach their home states. Meanwhile, India and China have been locked in a dispute over the heavy military build-up by People's Liberation Army (PLA) where they have brought in more than 5,000 troops along the Eastern Ladakh sector. Former head of Amnesty International India, Aakar Patel had a hilarious suggestion about India and China's ongoing dispute. He took to Twitter and joked: "My idea - Send Sonu Sood to Ladakh to send Chinese back home safely." To which Sonu had a hilarious response. He wrote, "Chinese लोगों को डिटेल्ज़ भेजो"
Recently, the former Amnesty International official, Aakar Patel landed in soup over a controversial tweet. FIR was filed against the former journalist and human rights activist in Bengaluru over his controversial comments on social media. The FIR is lodged under charges pertaining to provocation with intent to cause riots.
According to the FIR filed on June 2, Patel had tweeted that protests like the ones in the US over George Floyd's death are needed in India by the marginalised communities.
The tweet by Aakar read: “We need protests like these. From Dalits and Muslims and Adivasis. And the poor. And women. World will notice. Protest is a craft.”
