Toronto, August 22

An Indian in Canada has been allegedly racially abused over a parking dispute by a white woman, who yelled “go back to your country” and called him a “Paki”, according to a media report.

Rahul Kumar, who moved from India to Canada seven years ago, was also called a “loser” with “shit-coloured skin”, CTV news reported. Kumar filmed the encounter outside his home on his cellphone last week.

In the video, a woman yells at Kumar over a parking dispute. “You can film all you want Paki. Yes Paki, that’s you with the shit-coloured skin,” the report said, citing the video. Unapologetic, she later said she was “not a racist”. “I have no problem with what happened,” she said. — PTI
