PM Modi: Urgently Make a Statement Condemning Racial Attacks on Indians from North East

A young woman in Delhi was taunted and called ‘Corona’.
Not just her and me, there are multiple cases of people from North East India being shouted at, asked to vacate their houses and even thrown garbage at! Many other people like those who work in airlines have faced social boycott and discrimination in their residential complexes.
I am tired. While the entire country is fighting one battle: Coronavirus, I am fighting two: Coronavirus and RACISM.
At a time like this, when a global health crisis is affecting all of humanity, we should be taking care of each other. Instead, some people are still carrying hate in their hearts.
I faced severe harassment online. I was flooded with racial abuse on Twitter, and finally, I filed an FIR with #DelhiPolice against those persons who have been calling me "chinki", a racial slur which is punishable by law.
This is a new low for us as Indians. My friends, brothers, sisters, and I cannot fight this on our own anymore. Facing discrimination in your own country is exhausting. We appeal to the government to take urgent action and speak up for us.
Sign my petition asking the Prime Minister to issue strict orders against any such discrimination across the country.
It’s time for all of us to come together and show love and care towards one another in these difficult times. Let us show our solidarity through our words and actions. The Coronavirus is not discriminating between people, so why are we?
