There have been an increasing number of allegations in recent years regarding non-resident Indians experiencing racism abroad. A Hindu guy was verbally assaulted at a Taco Bell in Fremont, California, on August 21. A video about the incident was posted online and quickly became popular.
While waiting for his order, the victim, Krishnan Jayaraman, was verbally attacked by another customer. Krishnan captured the incident on an 8-minute video. The man in the video adds, “f*cking toes sticking out when you’re walking. This isn’t India, f*ck you. You screwed India. You’re screwing up America.”
Additionally, he tells Jayaraman repeatedly not to appear in public and that he is “disgusting” and “nasty.” Jayaraman recounted the man saying, “You’re a Hindu who bathes in cow urine,” in an interview with a news programme. At one point, the man spits at Jayaraman as well, but the latter chooses not to respond.
According to reports, the perpetrator used Punjabi and Hindi language in the video. Employees from Taco Bell have not stepped in to help, and the firm has not made any comments about the incident. The incident is being looked into by the Fremont Police Department. There are no news as of yet regarding possible charges against the attacker.
