Britain's report revealed, racist violence with Indians
Ethnic minorities in the UK's Belfast area, including Indians, face challenges of racism, segregation, and poverty, which affect their participation in political, social, and economic life. This information has come out from the new study. A study carried out by Belfast City Council in partnership with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and Public Health found inequalities in the areas of education, housing, work, and civic and political participation by more than 150 people from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities reported that.
 
Chinese and Indian communities have lived in Northern Ireland, the UK for decades, and now represent the largest second and third-generation migrant populations. According to the 2021 census, the largest ethnic group in Belfast was those who self-identified as white (92.9 percent), followed by Chinese (1.37 percent), Indians (1.26 percent), people of mixed ethnicity (1.2 percent), percent) and Black African (1.19 percent).
 
The study found that only three-quarters of minority ethnic and migrant participants felt safe in Belfast, compared to more than 90 percent of the city's residents overall. Two out of five parents reported that their children had experienced racism in schools and 38 percent of participants had experienced a racist hate crime in Belfast and 41 percent had experienced discrimination in other contexts.
 
Professionals generally reported poor promotion prospects at work, with only a third of participants being unemployed, due to discrimination in the labor market, but also due to language barriers and difficulties accessing work-related training. Many reported finding low-income jobs, yet remained in jobs below their qualifications even after speaking English fluently.
 
Recent migrants highlighted the difficulty in navigating basic services and accessing education and work opportunities to improve their prospects. Homeownership is considered desirable but difficult due to low income, unsafe occupations, cost of living, and availability of credit networks.
 
As for civic and political participation, most of these minorities have the right to vote, with less than half ever using it. Trust in political representatives is particularly low across all ethnic and national groups in this study. A fifth of participants had personally contacted a councilor, MLA, and/or MP.
 
The study comes after Britain's Indian-origin Prime Minister Rishi Sunak recently revealed that he had experienced racism in Britain but the country has made incredible progress in tackling the issue since then. According to the 2021 census released last week, the number of people of Indian origin in the UK has increased from 2.5 percent (14.12 lakh) to 3.1 percent, becoming the largest non-white ethnic group in Britain.
