Your frustration and being upset with the whole situation is quite understandable. As per my point of view, not just farmers who were protesting were called Khalistanis or terrorist but anybody in India who protested against the current government was either called anti-nationals or terrorists. The sad part is the farmers who are feeding our nation are being branded by such terms by the current government + certain section of the media.
Even earlier protests which took place in the last few years many faced sedition charges and thrown in jails or irregular arrests were made of journalists who tried to show the truth.
For example, As protests against the CAA-NRC bill took place in many parts of India, the protesters were called anti-nationals even the Muslim community was highly targeted. Even university students were called the tukde-tukde gang.
Unfortunately, the right to speech including freedom of media has drastically decreased in our nation. So basically if anyone points out the Central Government's shortfall be it, farmers, students, activists, journalists, celebrities they are termed not anti-government but are directly branded as anti-nationals. So, anybody questioning the current regime or the laws passed by them is tagged as anti-national.
