When the Ambassador was asked about the African protests in Delhi, he said, “Emotions are running high today. We should be careful with what we do.
We are mourning the death of one of us whose only crime was to come to India and seek knowledge to build Africa. We understand the anger among the African community but we will ask them to comply and be law-abiding Africans.”
Commenting on the sensitization plans of MEA the Ambassador said, “It is really important. India is part of a larger world. You don't want to do to others what you don't want to be done into you. Africans coming to your country are adding to your economy and culture.”

Shameful attack to Africans

It is shameful to know about the attack on Africans by some Indian lumpen. . India and Africa has relations since the years of independence and before. But the relationships are mostly on the governmental level which is dominated by the bureaucrats who deal with Africa for 2/3 years and get transferred and forgets about Africa. Most of Indian Ambassadors posted in Africa take it as punishment. Of course there are a few exceptions. As a President of African Studies Association of India(ASA) , i feel it is a right time for Government to create awareness among Indians about the rich heritage of African countries. People of India should know that Africa is now being tipped as the global economic growth engine of the coming decades and India needs African support in economic and political fields. Government should involve the organisation like ASA to promote goodwill towards African countries and people and to get proper perspectives in framing its Africa policy.. ASA is an umbrella organisation of Indian africanists . It promotes knowledge and understanding of African affairs in India and Indian affairs in Africa.. The organisation has done extensive work to promote African studies in India . Only depending upon the bureaucrats and government agencies like ICWA wont help . This is important time that the Government should act.
