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.”
“Greta has been accused of creating disharmony and for being a part of a larger conspiracy,” Times Now relays.
“The agenda was exposed after she accidentally shared the propaganda tool kit which included campaign strategy for holding protests across the world over India’s farm laws,” they added.
Thunberg responded to the controversy with a subsequent tweet expressing support for the farmers.
“I still #StandWithFarmers and support their peaceful protest,” she wrote. “No amount of hate, threats or violations of human rights will ever change that.”
Aside from the criminal conspiracy trouble, this isn’t the first time Greta Thunberg has been accused of being fed information to disseminate to her followers.
Last year, a supporter discovered the accounts behind some of Thunberg’s posts on Facebook were those belonging to her father Svante Thunberg and Indian climate change activist Adarsh Prathap.
She denied the accusation saying, “All texts posted on my Facebook page has of course been written by me, just like everything else.”
In 2019, railway company Deutsche Bahn accused Greta of being less than truthful following a viral tweet showing her sitting on the floor of a train due to “overcrowding.”
“It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competently you were looked after by our team at your seat in first class,” the company wrote.
Thunberg was named Time Person of the Year in 2019 for her climate activism and later nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
She was a frequent foil for former President Trump who mocked her for having an “anger management problem.”
