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:

  1.   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.
  2. 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.
