Insults and attacks on North Eastern Indians
I read in the front page of ' The Statesman ' newspaper of today ( 15.9.2014 ) that two Manipuri youths who are students of Delhi University and live in a rented accomodation were called ' Chinkis ' and ' Nepalis ' by four persons in the Babulal Chowk area of Munirka in south west Delhi, and when they objected, were attacked by four locals with bricks, rods and scissors. One of the youths, Boilain was admitted to Safdarjung Hospital in a serious condition.
   I strongly protest against this. People from the North East are as much Indians as any of us, and should never be insulted by calling them ' Chinks ' or ' Nepalis ' or by use of any other racial or derogatory remark.. Those who do so are really enemies of our nation, as their action tends to divide us at a time when we must be united if we wish to see our country progress and prosper. Such persons should be given harsh punishment
