Few days back the incident of a Tanzanian girl being stripped off at Bangalore had caused a nation wide uproar. It resulted in a minor diplomatic crisis with Tanzania. The incident was widely judged as a racist attacks, the state administration was criticized for not acting quickly. The State Government have since then have made 9 arrests and suspended 2 Police officers. Today the diplomatic team from Tanzania held a meeting with the Home Minister of Karnataka. Walking out the meeting, the Tanzanian High Commissioner to India John WH Kijazi have denied it was a racist attack.

It comes  as a welcome relief for many as the incident had snowballed into a diplomatic headache besides threatening the cosmopolitan image of Bengaluru. The Tanzanian High Commissioner had also reminded the need for the African community to adhere to laws of the land and live in harmony with the locals by respecting their tradition. Both the Tanzanian High Commission and Indian Foreign Ministry have re-affirmed the need to implement long term measures and also have re-affirmed their commitment to avoid such situations an escalation of the same.

“I am happy with the action taken against the policemen (who did not come to the rescue of the girl and her friend) and we were told nine persons have been arrested.” – Tanzanian High Commissioner Kijazi


 

Soch Badlegi – Desh Badlega – Let’s Make India Safe For All
The Logical Indian is content on the recent developments that officials have been held accountable and arrests made. We also thank the Tanzanian High Commissioner to have come and to have calmed things down. Keeping in mind of humanism, keeping in mind the image of India abroad and keeping in mind the Indian Diaspora who are minorities in different countries, we should strive to make India safe for all including tourists and foreigners.
