In a shocking incident, a South Asian origin family living in Houston found a flyer at their door that said that United States President Donald trump was a “god’s gift” and that we needed to “get rid of Indians, Muslims and Jews.”
The incident took place in Fort Bend district, a suburb in Houston a place which comprises of mainly families of South Asian origins. The letter read, “Our new President, Donald J Trump, is God’s gift to the white nation. We want to get our county back on the right track We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and Jews.”
According to a PTI report, the family who is extremely frightened after the incident took place, have not been able to gather the courage to register a complaint with the police. Also, the family is unsure whether the letter was directed especially towards their family or toward the community in general.
“It is literally spewing words of hatred for everybody who isn’t white Anglo Saxon. That’s basically what this letter says,” a family friend of the South Asian who did not wish to be named said.
Apparently, this is not the first the such an incident has taken place in the locality. In January 2016, the regional Anti-Defamation League office had received over 10 such resentful letters.
The incident comes against the backdrop of a US Court rejecting the United States President Donald Trump’s appeal to reinstate the travel ban imposed on 7 Muslim countries.
In what came a massive shock to the people across the country, a day after Donald Trump signed an executive order to build a wall across the US-Mexico border, he signed another order on January 28 to keep the “radical Islamists” out of the US. The order prevents people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen from entering the country for 30 days.
