Racism in Swiss Universities

This is what happens when the racial discrimination is reported. The higher authorities suppress it. This has happened to a PhD student at the University of Zurich.

Sir,

I am curious to learn what rights does a foreign national have in this country when such injustices occur. With the University of Zurich officials safegaurding the identity of the professor and the immediate supervisor.

With such people holding responsible positions. Having a fascist and racist mindset, would they be able to safegaurd the values you speak of in your constitution. The judgement of such people is always biased. My career is being affected because of their racist ideology.

Is it that being non-white one is entitled by birth for such suffering? Is it that being white they have the right to do any thing? I hail the swiss justice system for nourishing such values ?


My only crime was being born as non-white and non-christian is it? When approached to the highest authorities. We are threatened and bullied. These are the words of the professor and immediate supervisor.

"keep quiet and live ".

My identity is keep anonymous, for lack of faith in the swiss justice system. However, it has been my responsibility to inform the higher authorities.

With best regards

A victim PhD Student
