Ask India to End Origin based Discrimination of Visa Applicants

Dear Supporter

 Imagine if you go apply for a visa at some embassy for tourism or Business and you are told that all citizens can apply on their passport for a visa, except citizens of your Origin ,Jewish/African/Asian or any else.They should apply on the passport of country of their ORIGIN. Would you not feel the overwhelming discrimination that embassy is advocating?

Discrimination is something that affects us even when we are not the target. Discrimination in any form should not be accepted especially when it attempts to divide a nation based on its citizen's origin.

India is a democratic country but it is openly discriminating against Citizens and Businesses of UK/US/Canada and many other EU Nations on basis of their Origin when they apply for a India visa.  India sets visa rules differently for our citizens based on their origin which affectively strips some of our citizens of their right to travel as a citizen, on their Passport just because of their origin. 

Please help by signing this petition and asking our Government to raise this issue strongly with Government of India and ask them to treat our citizens uniformly when it comes to Visa applications, not differentiating or discriminating among them just because of their Origin.


Thank you
