We hear of cases of racial discrimination against those coming from the northeastern part of the countrytime and again. Last year in April, the death of Loitam Richard from Manipur called for a nation-wide protest against discrimination towards Indians from the northeast. Richard was a student of Architecture in Bangalore and was beaten to death by his hostel mates. Social media was used to raise awareness on the issue and gather people for a protest march. This was followed by the case of NidoTaniam, the son of a Congress Legislators from Aruncahal Pradesh. Nido, after being humiliated by a shopkeeper, was beaten to death with iron rods.
