BENGALURU: The World Organisation of Student and Youths (WOSY) organised a peace demonstration to show their solidarity with the Tanzanian girl who was abused in public recently by a mob reacting to the mowing down of an Indian woman by a reckless African driver.

Around 100 students from 25 to30 countries participated in the demonstration at the Town Hall in solidarity with Africans in the City who have been frightened by the mob action. A minute of silence and mourning with candles was observed as an offering of condolences for the death of Sababna Taj, who was run over.

Students felt the need for strong measures to assure safety and security for foreign students in Bengaluru. “I chose Bengaluru for its historic significance for peace, tranquillity, kind hospitality and for its purely cosmopolitan nature but, this incident has shocked me and I am reviewing my decision,” said Tensing Dolma a college student.

Sanjeev Ningombam, International Secretary of WOSY said, “We have demanded intervention and action from the concern head to address the safety and security of foreign students in India, grievance cells at police station and few other demands.”

WOSY appealed to the residents of the City to accommodate foreign students not only in the city but also in their hearts and keep up the brand of ‘Great Bengaluru’. WOSY requested all the foreign students to keep calm, have faith in the judicial process and respect the law of land.
