The Arunachal Pradesh government has filed a lawsuit against a social media influencer in Punjab, alleging his racial remarks against the Congress MLA and “bad will towards the people of the state”.
Paras Singh was dubbed “Paras Official” on his YouTube channel. In a video released on Sunday, he referred to the National Assembly MLA Ninong Ering as “non-Indian.” The apparent claim that “the state is part of China” caused an uproar among people in Arunchalees and other parts of the country.
In another video posted earlier in the day, he apologized for his comments.
DGP RP Upadhyaya said: “The case against Paras racial hatred has been registered and Itanagar’s cybercrime department is investigating the matter.”
Chief Minister Pema Khandu took to Twitter to condemn racial discrimination and stated that “the videotape is designed to incite malice and hatred against the people of Arunachal Pradesh”.
Khandu also added that the person’s social media account is being thoroughly investigated to obtain detailed information about his activities and whereabouts.
CM added that social media should be used with caution, and any infringements will be taken in accordance with the law.
Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein emphasized that seeing the YouTube post “shocked and frustrated him”, which not only “has doubted the nationality of the MLA in Arunachal Pradesh, but also questioned the existence of the internal state of India”.
“Our nationality is questioned because of our appearance. This is a problem that most people in northeastern India often face inland. Our appearance, clothing, diet and lifestyle make us Indians.”
“We are proud to be a state of the Commonwealth of India. Even in the inland areas, most of us even greet “Jai Hind” and elementary school students, and even sing “Saare Jahaan se Achha, Hindustan Hamara” in border villages. .” He proudly said in the official Twitter handle.
The deputy CM asked YouTuber to express an unconditional apology for this.
“I strongly condemn the racism and arrogance of Mr. Pallas Singh (Bounty). Every Arunachalien and all thoughtful Indians must condemn this prejudice. He must tell Aru The people of Nachal State apologize unconditionally. @PemaKhanduBJP @KirenRijiju @ninong_erring,” Mein added.
Singh apparently made a comment in response to Ering’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi), in which he requested a ban on the re-issuance of PUBG Mobile (Indian Battlefield).
When contacted by the East Passighart Liberation Army, he said that he would soon file a lawsuit against Singh.
At the same time, the All-Arunachal Pradesh Student Union (AAPSU) issued a statement stating that the remarks have “extremely hurt” people in the state.
“Such incidents are not isolated incidents. They happen frequently throughout the country. It is frustrating that even in the more than 70 years since the country’s independence, people in the state and the Northeast still face humiliation. The rest of the country, no matter when Go there to work or study,” AAPSU Chairman Hawa Bagang and Secretary-General Tabom Dai said in a joint statement.
