Please Help Stop The Violence Against Africans Residing In India
This petition had 40 supporters
We call on Prime Minister Modi and the Indian House of Parliament to put an end to the continuous violence inflicted upon Africans residing in India.
On 27 March 2017, hundreds of Indian’s in Noida went on a rampage attacking African students whom they accused of dealing in drugs. This wouldn’t be the first time that Africans have been assaulted in India. From Bangalore to Punjab to Noida to New Delhi, Africans have been racially abused on the streets, pelted with stones, stripped naked, beaten to coma and hacked to death. We have been dehumanised, refused accommodation and when we walk through the streets of India, the hair on the back our necks jump up as we feel the hostility coming from the intense gaze of our Indian brothers. Many of us have been stripped of our African names and rechristened “Habshis” as our first name and “Bander” as our surname. The violence inflicted on us has turned us to hermits because we now believe that a living African hermit in India is better off than a dead African in India.
We urge you to use your good office to put an end to this violence.
