Celebrities from all over the world are questioning the atrocities against black people regarding the brutal death of George Floyd. Many of them tweeting against racial abuse and discrimination. Celebrities from India where racial discrimination is not an issue are also responding on this incident but many people are commenting that they are following double standards as there a lot of other important issues in our country and nobody is raising a question on those topics.
Actor Abhay Deol recently posted a picture which says #migrantlivesmatter #minoritylivesmatter #poorlivesmatter and wrote, "Maybe it's time for these now? Now that "woke" indian celebrities and the middle class stand in solidarity with fighting systemic racism in America, perhaps they'd see how it manifests in their own backyard? America has exported violence to the world, they have made it a more dangerous place, it was but inevitable that it would come back karmically. I'm not saying they deserve it, I'm saying look at the picture in it's totality. I'm saying support them by calling out the systemic problems in your own country, because they turn out to be one and the same thing. I'm saying follow their lead but not their actions. Create your own actions, your own movement, relevant to your own country. That is what the black lives matter movement is all about! In the larger picture, there is no "us" and "them". There is not a country that's real. But a planet in peril.

Black Lives Matter (find out why not to use the hashtag and still support the movement).
Through another post, he questioned our celebrities if they would stop endorsing fairness cream products. This is a valid question and we need to see if anyone our stars react to this.
