On Monday, Julius Malema repeated the statement he made about Indians, which outlined all of them as racists.
Speaking outside the Newcastle Magistrate's Court on 25 June, the Economic Freedom Fighters' leader restated the controversial statement he made on Youth Day, adding those who were enraged by the comment were racists.
“Indeed‚ the majority of Indians are racist‚” he told the crowd outside the court room, continueing by saying, “We did not say all Indians are racist. If you are Indian and you are racist‚ you know we are talking to you - that’s why you get angry".
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Juju said during a Youth Day speech at Matlosana Stadium in Klerksdorp in the North West that Indians had it better during apartheid than black people.
He further went to on to accuse the majority of Indians of being racist. Malema went on to attack Indian journalists who came to Ismail Momoniat's defense after the EFF's Floyd Shivambu questioned Momoniat's presence as a "non-African" at a committee meeting in June.
He has since received a lot of backlash for his remarks and according to the Indian community, Juju's recent comments about Indians has sparked fear and panic among the communities.
