INDIAN STUDENTS IN UK WRITE TO MODI SEEKING JUSTICE
LONDON: Indian students and alumni based in the UK have delivered a letter for Prime Minister Modi at the Indian High Commission in London asking him to take “extraordinary measures” to ensure justice in rape cases reported from different states in India.
The National Indian Students and Alumni Union (NISAU) UK, together with 19 India-related societies at leading UK universities, submitted the letter dated April 14 ahead of Modi’s four-day visit to the UK on Tuesday. “Hon Prime Minister, extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures. You have not shied away from taking difficult decisions in the past, such as with demonetisation. Please take similar extraordinary steps to prove that India’s daughters matter. We demand that you set a true example and prove that the current Indian government does care about the wellbeing and dignity of its children, women, and citizens at large,” said the letter.
