The Telegraph Must Render Unconditional Apology sign now

Dear Madam/Sir

Your esteemed news paper has portrayed the people living in Darjeeling hills, as being foreigners and not Indians, in one of the article published on April, 2nd 2008 by Sumanta Sen under the title "Fight for A New Home". We are not just hurt but we are shocked too as the idea and the article is both baseless and slandering in nature. Mr. Sen seems to be both ill informed and disillusioned and he is also hurting the very fabric of national integration, by leveling us as being foreigners.

We feel that Mr. Sen acted irresponsibly, and by publishing the article The Telegraph in general and The Editor in particular have also shown their irreverence and ill will towards our community. Just because ethnically we are Nepali, no one has any right what so ever to call us foreigners in our own mother land, India.

We demand unconditional apologies from The Telegraph, The Editor and the author of the article Mr. Sen. We also demand that acts and activities like these are not repeated in the future.
