YouTuber Karl Rock's recent plea to grab the attention of the Indian Government after being blacklisted, seems to have finally paid off.
Dear @jacindaardern, the Govt. of India has blocked me from entering India separating me from my wife & family in Delhi. They blacklisted me without telling me, giving reasons, or letting me reply. Please watch my struggle https://t.co/dq0Z98SCFw @NZinIndia @MukteshPardeshi pic.twitter.com/sLM2nk9lR3— Karl Rock (@iamkarlrock) July 9, 2021
