Racist hate crime against Black African students must end

132

New Delhi: Amnesty International India on March 29 asked the Uttar Pradesh authorities to bring to justice those responsible for recent racist attacks against black African students and ensure the students’ safety. “The recent attacks in Uttar Pradesh show how black people in India – particularly African students – continue to face racist discrimination and violence. Many of those injured were targeted merely because of the colour of their skin. These are hate crimes, and authorities need to ensure that those responsible are punished,” said Makepeace Sitlhou, Campaigner at Amnesty International India.
