Editorial: A Brief Reflection on Policing in South Asia after the George
Flyod’s Incident

George Flyod’s incident led to immense outpouring of shock, grief, and sympathy
for the victim across the world. In the US it resulted in uprisings of multiracial
masses that ended up in riots, vandalism, and violence. Elsewhere in the world it
appealed to mass rallies, protests and expression of anger. Leftist analysts called
the uprisings in the US a revolution, while the rights an insurrection. Some called
for a fresh series of police reforms, while others demanded defunding and
disbanding the police. Some highlighted the growing economic inequality, others
political racial discrimination, and yet others socio-cultural problems of the
multicultural American society.
