The Inkatha Freedom Party condemns in the strongest possible terms the racist vitriol that was spewed forth recently on Facebook by a Mr Dawie Kriel.
“The level of hatred, religious intolerance and threats of violence towards Indians, and the Indian community at large in South Africa by Mr Dawie Kriel, must be condemned in the strongest possible terms,” said IFP Chief Whip in Parliament, Mr Narend Singh, MP.
‘The IFP is currently laying a complaint against Mr Kriel with the Human Rights Commission and will do everything in its power to ensure that Mr Kriel is brought before the equality court to answer to these abhorrent remarks,’
‘Hate speech has no place in South Africa and must not be tolerated at any level. This is a direct contravention of the Equality Act, must be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted,’ concluded Singh, MP.
