Summary Translation: Red FM radio host Shameel Jasvir initiated a discussion over the recent protests in the US and Canada. The callers were saying that what happened due to police action was unfortunate and people from all communities should come forward to condemn such acts and show peaceful protests rather than violence. One caller said that proper investigations should be done before resorting to protests. He gave an example of an old prisoner who gunned down soldiers and was captured by the US. The same person was extradited to Canada and the Canadian government gave him millions of dollars. The caller said that such actions only encourage violence and terrorism. The caller said that the man who was caught by police was doing something wrong by tendering fake currency but when he was caught, he did not cooperate with police, which was wrong. Another caller was of the opinion that racism is not very easy to part with. He said although the politicians are saying and supporting the antiracism sentiments, the fact is that racism does exist in every community to some or larger extent. He gave an example of racism here in Canada and in the Peel region saying students of the Black community are given more detentions and they are held back from choosing better academic subjects. He said that miscreants from all communities take advantage of such violent incidents, like some community members tried to resort to breaking buildings after the protesters held their protests in Montreal. He said the mentality of police is very bad and is very much prevalent even at higher levels in government. If the victim had been a white person then the action of police would have been different. Another caller said that the police is to enforce the law and not to deliver justice. The host said that the Black community needs a powerful leadership. Racism is widely prevalent in each community.
