As the global community witnesses the incitement of misinformation and violence against the right to dissent of Farmers during the largest protest in human history, the Farmer's Protest against the Farm Bill 2020 in India's Capital City, Delhi, we also see Bollywood actors directly and indirectly support the actions of state-perpetrated harms. One of which is Akshay Kumar, a Canadian citizen who also profits large sums of money from the Canadian South Asian community.

In the last two decades, Akshay Kumar has worked on films appropriating to profit off of the Sikh religion and its history such as Kesari and Singh is King, Punjabi culture, and, specific to Canada, Indo-Canadian youth culture through the production of the film, Breakaway. In result, we see Akshay Kumar rake in profits over time, as well as be given an honorary citizenship in 2011.

As the Indian state induces violence against farmers in 2021, Caravan Mag releases an article on January 31st, 2020, called Akshay Kumar's Role as the Hindutva Poster Boy, citing Kumar as a nationalist hero, and the poster boy of Hindutva fascists inciting violence against Farmers protesting around the borders of Delhi, India right now – a majority of whom are Sikh and include the elderly and children.

We call on Prime Minister Justin P Trudeau to revoke the Canadian citizenship of Akshay Kumar, who has done little to contribute to and support the members of Sikh and Punjabi communities, who are an integral part of the backbone of Canada's economic structure and society he profits off in his films. In the mean time, Kumar is donating heavy sums of those profits to a Hindutva fascist regime that is set to destroy its minority groups, including Muslims, Sikhs, Dalits and Tribals and a Prime Minister that is internationally recognized as a war criminal for inciting violence against Muslims in the 2002 Gujarat riots.
