Sushma Swaraj Felt Sorry For Manipuri Girl Who Faced Racial Discrimination At IGI

Published on 11 July, 2016 at 2:40 pm By

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on July 10 personally apologised to Manipur’s girl Monika Khangembam, after she faced ‘humiliation’ at the hands of an immigration officer at Delhi’s IGI airport.

Monika, who took to Facebook to tell her tale, said that she felt humiliated at Delhi’s IGI after an immigration officer asked about her nationality.

Further, despite telling the officer that she was an Indian, he repeatedly kept asking her questions to ‘test’ her knowledge about India and commented that ‘she did not look like an Indian’.

Taking note of the situation, Swaraj took to Twitter and said that though the Immigration Department isn’t under her command, she would take up the matter with the concerned ministry.

 

She further went on to add that she will talk to Home Minister Rajnath Singh.



 

 

Hours after Swaraj tweeted that she will take up the matter with Rajnath Singh, Monika once again took to Facebook to address the issue.

While she thanked her supporters, she also took on people who had left hate comments on her initial post and once again pointed to the issue that many people from the northeast face in rest of the country.
