BJP stages massive protest against Sam Pitroda’s ‘racist’ remarks on Indians

During the protest, BJP leaders and workers condemned Pitroda’s remarks as an insult to the country’s rich cultural diversity and called for his immediate dismissal from all positions within the Congress party.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) organized a massive protest in the national capital on Thursday, condemning the controversial remarks made by Congress leader Sam Pitroda about the physical appearances of Indians from different regions of the country.

Hundreds of BJP workers gathered at Jantar Mantar, raising slogans and holding placards to express their outrage over Pitroda’s statements, which they labelled as “racist” and “insulting” to Indians.

The protests were sparked by Pitroda’s recent comments during an interview, where he claimed that people in India’s East look like Chinese, those in the West resemble Arabs, Northerners appear like Whites and Southerners have an African appearance. These remarks sparked widespread condemnation from political leaders and the public, who accused Pitroda of promoting racial stereotypes and undermining India’s unity in diversity.

During the protest, BJP leaders and workers condemned Pitroda’s remarks as an insult to the country’s rich cultural diversity and called for his immediate dismissal from all positions within the Congress party. They demanded that the Congress leadership, including Rahul Gandhi, unequivocally condemn Pitroda’s statements and take disciplinary action against him.

The protesters argued that such divisive and discriminatory comments targeting Indians based on their physical appearance and regional backgrounds were unacceptable and went against the principles of equality and unity enshrined in the Indian Constitution.
