Speaking of 'Phoenix massacre’ demonises Indians, SAHRC hears

Representative from the Social Cohesion Group Ravigesen Pillay says the labelling of the deaths of 34 people in Phoenix during the July 2021 unrest as a massacre is wrong and perpetrates racial divisions.
In its final sitting, the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) heard from Pillay.
He told the commission “... the labelling of the entire Phoenix community and through the characterisation of the events in Phoenix as a ‘massacre’ has demonised the entire Indian community because of the actions of a few.”
