When there was a revolt in Sudan everyone from Rihana to Zayn Malik posted about it so why not about Kashmir? I think it’s because India is a huge market and celebs have vested interests in India and posting about it may lead to them losing followers from India

India is a big market. Celebrities don't want to get banned from the big countries. Have you seen many rally against China?

Where’s the conscience of the celebs? Especially Zayn Malik given he’s a Pakistani and has roots in Kashmir?

Because the situation in Kashmir is more complex than than the one in Sudan. Literally everyone was on the side of the civilians in Sudan, so there would be no backlash if they spoke out about it. Whereas, with the situation in Kashmir, doesn’t matter what “side” they show support for, there will always be someone kind of back lash from the other “side”. If you know what I mean

Your mistake is thinking that celebrities actually care about social issues rather than using them for PR.

You don't get to that level of fame with a normal functioning conscience.

There's a nice article on this thread in "The Spectator" magazine (mild paywall)

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/0...cotting-india/

Quote: Where are the campaigns for divestment from Indian companies and sanctions on its government? Why, in short, isn’t India receiving the full Israel [Iran/Russia/Korea/Venezuela/Syria/HK etc] treatment?

Not just Slebs, but the Governments & Foreign Ministries of a lot of places seem to be not noticing complete cut-off to internet, telephone system down, illegal to protest, preparations & seeming repopulation with outsiders, partiality, naked, exposed - according to The Spectator & hardly anywhere else

Why is the word 'conscience' and the name 'Zayn Malik' in the same sentence?

So? Then how the hell Sudan got so much attention from the celebs? Only Indian celebs have talked about Kashmir and that too in a bad way lmao
