How The Indian Media Fans ‘Racism Against Indians Abroad’ Idea.

…with stories like this one published by TOI.  Reading the article one walks away with the idea that the UK is out to curb immigration by introducing mandatory English tests before ‘Indians could join their partner.’  The article continues to credit Theresa May with ‘taking a tough line’ and ‘warning’ about more measures to come.

Now read the same story from another source, Yahoo!  The English language test is for ALL migrants outside the European Union not just Indians.  In addition “The new requirement will apply to spouses, civil partnerships, unmarried couples, same sex partners and fiances, and will be compulsory for people applying from within Britain, as well as visa applicants from abroad.”

Here’s a simple question – would the TOI, or any other corporation in India doing business globally hire someone who could not communicate in English?
