Abuser hurls racist slurs at Indian in New Zealand, denigrates 'Punjabis'
Los Angeles : Racial slurs and rants against Indians abroad have seen a massive rise especially in countries like US and UK, but now the signs have shifted even to Australia.
In a new incident, an Indian residing in New Zealand, Narindervir Singh was abused, sworn at and told to go back to his own country.
He was also assaulted and subjected to a racist tirade before being told that he should go back to his own country during a road rage incident in Auckland.
The victim, Narindervir Singh also filmed the entire incident while sitting inside his vehicle when it happened on a weekday last week.
In a Facebook live video streaming, he can be heard saying, “I gave him a space... that lady gave me the finger. He was driving that car [pointing to a white Holden] and now he’s trying to threaten me, giving me bad names.”
When Narindervir informed the driver that he’s uploading the video live, the situation drastically escalated with the other driver abusing and swearing at him.
The abuser who is seen in video wearing a grey Everlast t-shirt, was tail-gating according Narindervir.
A media report published by Newshub also stated that the abuser also made derogatory remarks about Punjabi people.
Newshub also quoted Narindervir stating, “It really shocked me and after he [left], I was really shaken. I don’t know what to do, it really hurts my heart...The first thing in my mind was that he might hurt me with some weapon.”
The abuser once again hurled racist slurs in a parking area nearby.
The victim has now filed complaint with police.
