Africans attacked: Kanhaiya to lead 'March for Justice' at Jantar Mantar today
New Delhi, May 31 ( ANI): Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar urged the nation to come out in large numbers and join the African students for the 'March for Justice' at the Jantar Mantar in the national capital on Tuesday. Condemning the government's approach in the matter, Kanhaiya said that the government wanted to perpetually function in a denial mode, adding that the attack on the African students showed the racial discrimination that was taking root in this country. It is shameful that the government takes this issue so lightly when diplomats from 42 African nations boycotted the weeklong celebration of Africa Day, hosted by the Indian government as a sign of protest against renewed 'racism and Afro-phobia'," he added.
