In a shocking incident of racial discrimination in the national capital, a Kashmiri woman has alleged that she was assaulted and abused by her landlady and one other man in Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar. The woman has also filed a police complaint against them.
Noor Bhat, belonging to Srinagar in Kashmir, narrated her ordeal on Twitter and claimed that her landlady entered the house with a man whom she has never seen before and started calling her a ‘terrorist’ because they’re from Kashmir. She further alleged that the incident took place in front of cops and accused the landlady of stealing her belongings from the house.”So my landlady enters my house along with a man, that I have never seen in my whole life and starts to call me and my friends ‘TERRORISTS’ just because we are from KASHMIR that too, in front of a police official. They trespassed, broke in and our money, furniture (sic)” the Kashmir woman, Noor, said on Twitter.
“The man literally pushed me and the landlady as well tried to attack me, all in front of Delhi Police,” she added.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission For Women (DCW) Chief Swati Maliwal has taken cognizance of the matter and assured all possible help to the Kashmir woman. “This is shocking & shameful. DCW team is in touch. We’ll ensure action! (sic)” she tweeted.
