What Are The Allegations Against Disha Ravi
-She (Disha Ravi) was the one who shared the Toolkit Doc with Greta Thunberg. The “toolkit” is a term activists use for a campaign information document.
-In the process of drafting the document, Ravi and other members of the group all collaborated with Poetic Justice Foundation to spread disaffection against India.

A graduate from Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru, Disha Ravi has been featured in publications across the world as a young activist voicing her strong opinions about the environmental crisis in India.
She is a popular name in important climate forums frequented by youth activists across the globe. Ravi has been writing columns and articles in leading news portals on climate action. She describes herself as co-founder of Fridays For Future, India.
“My motivation to join climate activism came from seeing my grandparents, who are farmers, struggle with the effects of the climate crisis. At the time, I wasn’t aware that what they were experiencing was the climate crisis because climate education is non-existent where I’m from. Only when I did my research, did I find out about it”, the 21-year-old climate activist had said in an interview to Auto Report Africa in 2020.
