The government today moved swiftly to calm tempers after African countries announced their boycott of "Africa Day" celebrations in Delhi expressing anger over the lynching of a Congo national and "attacks that have gone unresolved". On May 21, Masonda Ketada Olivier was beaten to death in South Delhi's Vasant Kunj, allegedly over an argument over hiring an auto-rickshaw. Two of the accused have been arrested and one is missing. After tweets by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, African diplomats may attend the celebrations tomorrow. But do these attacks expose deeper fault lines? Is this is our racist reality?
