A woman on a train in Ireland has been caught on camera making expletive-ridden racist comments towards fellow Asian passengers, telling one of them to “go back to India” for placing a bag on an empty seat, media reports said today. In the videos, originally posted on Twitter, the woman can be seen and heard making expletive-ridden comments towards fellow passengers.

Twitter user TheBexWay filmed the woman on a train from Limerick Colbert station to Limerick Junction on Sunday, Irish Independent reported. She messaged the Irish Rail account during the trip, saying the woman had been making abusive comments for 10 minutes, the report said. Go back to India. Don’t give me your guff, the woman was heard saying in the video.

The woman then targeted another passenger who appeared to stand up for the people she was abusing, saying: “look at the ugly head of that fella. “That’s the only reason he’s backing you up is because he’s ugly”. The passengers left their seats after 16 minutes of verbal abuse, the report said. “You don’t really get the full effect of what happened from the video. She was literally sitting beside them, screaming bloody murder in their faces. It went on for almost the whole train ride,” she said.

“I didn’t feel safe. If that turned into a fist fight, there would have been nobody there to help us.” Irish Rail has reported the incident, captured in a series of videos showing the Irish woman’s racist rant on a Limerick train, to the Gardaí, the state police force of the Republic of Ireland.

A spokesman for Irish Rail told the report that behaviour like this will not be tolerated on their service. “People should be able to travel on our services without abuse of any kind. The footage is very clear and very shocking and we welcome the fact that another member of the public was able to assist in identifying the person involved,” he said.

In March, a study issued by the European Network against Racism Ireland (ENAR Ireland) found that there was an alarming growth in the number of racism incidents being reported over the last six months, the report said.

      Well, with all the "European values" that is being bandied about by the Governments there, migration has increased and a lot of people from West Asia have gone to Europe, thanks to the instability plaguing the region. And terrorist attacks have also happened in Europe at the same time, sometimes involving such refugees. No wonder the latent race issue has been given a new fillip. Honestly, it is hard to condone such behaviour, but then again, one can understand the reasons. Those who decide to migrate to the Western countries have to bear in mind the factors relating to race and immigration before deciding to relocate.

          I came to Europe many years ago before all this Islamic terrorism has started to happen in west.Yes there was racism even then but nothing of the sort it is there now. A few bad people would give you a stare or so but mostly it was a friendly welcome atmosphere.No one cared that much.Since this Islamic terrorism started everything changed.Now ONLY A FEW EXPRESS IT BUT MOST NATIVE WHITE PEOPLE HATE EVERYONE FROM AFRICA OR ASIA.They are sick of Muslims and terrorism.They cant differentiate who is muslim who is not.They only consider white people as "SAFE" and non muslim and they want everyone but white people out.Fault is of Muslims, price is being paid by Hindus and other.

            They don't hate "Indians" they hate Muslims.They dont know the difference between a stani or Indian Muslim or Indian Hindu, In Britain and Europe everyone is "Asian" for them and most of them think all of them "Asians" are Muslims.Just like an average Indian calls every white skin person as "angrej" meaning English or British, while they could be anyone from 50 other countries and could have any religion.Hindus are paying price for the ill acts of Muslims.Hindu organisations are raising voices in Britain to be identified as Hindus and not as ASIANS FOR THIS REASON;THESE MUSLIMS ARE NOT JUST FOR PROBLEMS FOR THEMSELVES BUT FOR EVERYONE ELSE ALSO.

                @Kg: India is fast becoming a Hindu Extremist nation. We see hatred on Christians and Muslims by Hindu Extremist groups. We also see Hindu Terrorists bombing other religious places. For example, the Ajmer Shrine bombing by RSS men. I don't think Hindus will be able to point fingers on others anymore.

                  What a disgraceful women is that, we Indians never ever tell any one to go to any other country, We dont tell people from North Eastern States of India to go back to their country nor do we abuse them with racial slurs like calling them Y, CHAPTI etc, and especially the bangali speaking people in am we dont tell them to go to Bangladesh where they belong, Especially we North Indians never think that south india is not a part of this great country, and we north indians tolerate the South Indians even while they are black. nor do we Indians tell our fellow Indian citizens to go to stan or Nepal. We Indians are so polite then why do these Europeans, British, Australians & Americans hurl racial abuses.

                    It is very difficult to imagine a return to anything near the heady heights of the Celtic Tiger. Ireland’s economy is very heavily dependent on exports and the EU growth outlook remains very clouded. Increasingly, there are questions as to whether Ireland’s preferential corporate tax regime — key to attracting foreign investment over the years — can be sustained in the face of pressures from other countries. Still, even if real incomes in Ireland return to around their 2000 levels, this would still be an enormous improvement compared to the seventies when Ireland joined the EU as its then poorest member.

                      It's a pity that, a country which had p ered the wealth of India, the citizens of that Country is talking about Indians and Indian economy. I wish the Indians start standing up to face them and pay them back
