The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India (CPI) issued the following statement to the media on March 07, 2017:
The Central Secretariat of the Communist Party of India expresses its serious concern over the growing attacks of racism on Indians in the United States. After the gruesome murder of Srinivas Kuchbotla, a Gujarati trader Harnish Patel who was living in the US with his family for 14 years was murdered and two days later another Indian Sikh Deep Rai a 39-year-old Sikh man was shot at with the same hate slogan of ‘Go back to your country’.
An Indian woman in metro was also threatened by a Black American with shouts of ‘Go back’. These are only a few incidents and there is a constant fear among Indians, with each of these incidents. There is a wide spread genuine feeling among the immigrant communities in the United States and their kith and kin outside US that President Donald Trump’s executive orders including one on denying visas to other nationals are resulting in increased attacks on the immigrants. The Government of India should take up the issue with the U.S. government.
The Hindutva groups in United States who supported Donald Trump are making big voice on a film on ‘Aghoras’ in USA trying to undermine the racist poison unleashed by their beloved leader Donald Trump. Racism should be fought unitedly by all the democratic minded people. It is high time that the US government take stern action on the perpetrators of racist hatred with determination.
