Football unites Africans, Indians in Greater NoidaApril 7, 2017
Students of various nationalities, including Indians and Nigerians, took to the fields of Sharda University to play a football match and showcase their unity, following recent racial attacks on Africans in Greater Noida.
The match, between Embassy 11 and Chancellor 11, was organised as a gesture of goodwill by the district administration of Gautam Budh Nagar and the administration of Sharda University, to defuse tension prevailing in Greater Noida. Players were enthusiastic on the field and played the game in a fair manner.
“India is a country known for its culture and diversity. It is our responsibility to apply balm to the wounds and make sure that people from African countries feel safe here. Such events will bring students closer and they will be able to understand each other’s problems,” NP Singh, the district magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar, said.
