Indians Speak On Racial Violence, Condemn Assault on Nigerian
They question whether Indians really practice ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ in light of a Nigerian national being thrashed.
A shocking visuals of a Nigerian national tied to a pole in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar being beaten up by locals for an alleged theft has turned up. The man has been handed over to the police in a wounded state, and is now reportedly jailed.
Presidoe Okuguni, coordinator, Association of African Students in India, strongly condemned the act of violence.
