Indian Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has taken strong stand and opposed foreign interference in India’s affairs, against the backdrop of an almighty row over pop sensation Rihanna commenting on the ongoing farmers’ protest on the outskirts of the national capital Delhi. It so happened that Rihanna on Tuesday had shared a news story on the current state of farmers’ protest and asked why is no one talking about the issue.

Taking to the micro-blogging site, the Master Blaster wrote that India’s sovereignty cannot be compromised. Referring to the international pop icon’s comment, Sachin added that the external forces can be spectators but not participants. Furthermore, the 2011 World Cup winner also added that Indians know India and should decide for India and then urged the people of the country to remain united as a nation.

Pragyan Ojha also hits back:
My country is proud of our farmers and knows how important they are, I trust it will be addressed soon. We don’t need an outsider poking her nose in our internal matters!
