Climate activist Greta Thunberg has found herself the subject of a criminal conspiracy probe in India after accidentally tweeting a document showing she was being told what to say about an ongoing violent farmers’ revolt.
Thunberg is accused of “criminal conspiracy and promoting enmity on grounds of religion.”
The revolt involves protests over controversial agricultural reforms and has led to clashes between farmers and police.
Thunberg raised eyebrows by tweeting a link to a Google document which showed, according to the New York Post, that “she was getting told what to write on Twitter.”
The “toolkit” included a list of “suggested posts,” advising her to tag celebrities such as pop singer Rihanna, and a proposal to highlight planned demonstrations at Indian embassies.
The “toolkit” was reportedly created by Canada’s Poetic Justice Foundation, a self-described grassroots group whose website states is “most actively involved in the #FarmersProtest.”
Police in India, however, are investigating the group after a politician claimed the document contained “evidence of international plans for attacks against India.”
