Mumbai, May 31 (IANS) Actress Gul Panag says the recent incidents against Africans in Delhi are a matter of shame for the country as a society.

The former beauty queen expressed her concern on Twitter.
“The recent incidents against Africans in Delhi are a matter of shame for us as a society, but also a test of our law and order machinery,” Gul tweeted on Tuesday.
“Let’s not forget what our founding fathers said in the Constitution. The Indian state will battle and reform society’s worst impulses,” added Gul, who was an Aam Aadmi Party candidate from Chandigarh during 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
