A shocking incident of alleged racial abuse has emerged where an Indian man recorded an unidentified woman saying "I hate India" when the man's pregnant wife asked for a seat.
According to a April Gloverâ€™s report in Dailymail, Utsav Patel, a filmmaker as per his Twitter bio, had gone to Luna Park with his wife and four-year-old daughter when the incident happened. His 15-week pregnant wife wanted to sit down while Utsav wanted to take his daughter for a ride.
The couple saw the woman sitting on a bench with her legs up and requested her to give a seat to Utsav's wife when she went on an aggressive tirade about how she hated India.
She can be heard saying "F**k India" several times and motioning with her hand telling the couple to "go, go, go!"
Two videos of the incident were tweeted by Utsav on April 22. Watch them here:
Utsav tells the woman that she cannot talk like that and enquires about the security. The woman responds by saying, "Whatâ€™s the security going to do. I can say what I like."
Utsav told Dailymail that the womanâ€™s tirade was witnessed by his wife and daughter both, and they were left â€śspeechless for few hoursâ€ť. â€śWe hope this doesnâ€™t happen to anyone else,â€ť he added.
He tagged NSW police on Twitter when he posted the videos, who responded telling Utsav to lodge a complaint by calling on a number.
Utsav's later tweets indicate that he was directed by the police to approach other police stations to file a complaint. It is not clear he did the same.
