Watch the video of Naga Scholars' Association's panel discussion on 'Racial Discrimination in Times of COVID-19 in India' held on 29th May, 2020
Fights for racial discrimination have been going on since the time North East people started moving out of their regions to metro cities of India for the purpose of study and work. In the process, many people have been victims of racial discrimination and many people have lost their lives. What is even more painful is the manner in which North East people are made to face racial discrimination in the midst of covid-19, which is making them feel like strangers in their own land.
In view of these challenges, the Naga Scholars’ Association (NSA) is engaging some of the prominent personalities from the North East who have been dealing with the issue of racial discrimination at national and international arena. Therefore, it is expected that some directions would emerge from the panel discussion to address what the North East people have been facing for many decades.
