NEWS RELEASE

Hindus laud UEFA for sanctions on racism

Hindus have applauded UEFA (The Union of European Football Associations) for approving “stricter sanctions against racist conduct”.


Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, commending UEFA for introducing stricter sanctions for racist behavior, stressed that it was 2013 and prevalence of racism and discrimination in sports should not be acceptable.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, asked FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) also to introduce harsher sanctions against racism. He argued that both UEFA and FIFA had failed to deliver in the past on racism issue and an urgent intervention was needed in this direction.

Rajan Zed pointed out that reported racist chanting during a match between AC Milan and Roma on May 12 was a recent example. In January also, racist chants reportedly occurred in a friendly between Milan and Pro Patria.

Zed further urged His Holiness Pope Francis and other religious leaders of the world to come out openly against racism in sports as we were all equal in the eyes of God.

Having more women and non-white members on its Executive Committee would add to the credibility of UEFA on its stand against racism and discrimination, which currently had only one women member, Rajan Zed added.

The new UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, arrived at UEFA Executive Committee meeting in London which ended on May 23, include tougher sanctions to fight racist behavior at football matches. These include a partial stadium closure for the first offence and a full stadium closure for the second such offence coupled with a €50,000 fine for racist behavior by spectators; a minimum ten-match ban for such behavior by players/officials; minimum of three match ban for insulting match officials; and minimum of 15-match ban for assault on match officials.

A separate resolution to fight racism is being put forward to the Ordinary UEFA Congress being held on May 24.

Headquartered in Nyon (Switzerland), UEFA (The Union des Associations Europeennes de Football), founded in 1954, is the administrative body for association football in Europe and, partially, Asia, and has 53 associations under its wing. Michel Platini and Gianni Infantino are President and General Secretary respectively of UEFA, which states: "the colour of the skin is invisible under the jersey".

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
