Justice for Tailin Lyngdoh
This petition had 196 supporters
Tailin Lyngdoh, a governess to Nivedita Barthakur, Health Advisor for the Assam government, was asked to leave the Delhi Golf Club because of her attire (Jainsem) and class. We seek:
- Exemplary and stringent punishment against the General Committee of the Delhi Golf Club(DGC) for promoting racial and class based discrimination against a woman belonging to the Schedule Tribes Community and for violating statutory provision under the Indian Constitution and The Scheduled Castes and The Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989.
- Immediate removal of profession based, feudal and colonial, discriminatory policies from all elite clubs of India. Such policies reinforce class based discrimination in a country that has historically fought against such discrimination.
