“It was around 11:50AM on 6th February 2020, when I went to the canteen for lunch along with a friend of mine. While waiting for my food, there was a group of three male students standing beside me. Without any provocation, two of them started throwing racial slurs at me and totally caught me off guard. They said “Look, the corona is here!” and “Corona Virus!”, to which I replied by asking them to say what they said to my face. While the other one said, “people like her are like this only”.”, a northeast student studying at KMC shared in her testimony.

“I have decided to share my testimony because I want people to be aware of racial prejudice like the one I’ve encountered”, she added.

Another student shares his experience of being attacked with racial slurs such as “Chinki” while he was working in a college lab.

The North East Students’ Cell of Kiori Mal College has taken this issue very seriously. The Cell conducted a meeting with the Proctorial Committee after which another sub-committee was formed to look into this matter. Two such meetings with the Committee has already taken place. Some faculty members are also being accused of being involved in the matter.

“We have retrived the CCTV footage from the administration. We’re trying to identify the culprits.” added the President of the Cell, Calvin Zou.

The college administration is looking into the matter seriously and the Principal has promised to students that appropriate action would be taken.
