Amid the ongoing farmer's protests in India, The International United Nations Human Rights called for 'restraint' both by the farmers and the protestors.
"We call on the authorities and protesters to exercise maximum restraint in ongoing farmers' protests. The rights to peaceful assembly and expression should be protected both offline and online. It's crucial to find equitable solutions with due respect to human rights for all," the UN Human Rights's official Twitter handle said in a tweet.
Farmers mainly from the states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have been protesting for the three farm laws which they term it as three 'black laws'.
The chief demands by them are withdrawal of three farm laws which they argue would weaken the mandi system and favour corporate giants. Apart from this, they feel that there are no legal provisions related to Minimum support price procurement system.
The UN Human Rights remark comes days after international celebrities like Rihanna, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and several others came out in support of farmers' protest.
On Thursday, the United States also called for a "dialogue" with the farmers of India, urging the Indian government to recognise "peaceful protests" and allow "access" to the internet. On the issue of reports of internet shutdown in areas around the protest sites at the Delhi border, the US government emphasised that access to information was the "hallmark" of a thriving "democracy".
India has shown its rejection to the foreign intervention on its domestic matter and has said that any attack on India's sovereignty won't be accepted.
