Esports Federation of India director and Asian Esports Federation (AESF) vice president Lokesh Suji, while condemning shared: “ESFI strongly condemns the derogatory remarks made by the said streamer. This behaviour is not the true reflection of our esports community. The majority of esports athletes behave responsibly and are aware of the lines that should not be crossed. We have “Zero Tolerance” towards any kind of behaviour as we saw in this case. Social media platforms must not be used to make illogical and irresponsible comments and one should refrain from commenting on anything which they are not aware of. There have been instances in the past also, but now the time has come where such influencers and streamers should be cautious of what they speak and write. Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and it will remain so. No one is beyond the sovereignty and integrity of the country. We fully support the action taken by the relevant authorities. We all are one across the length and breadth of the nation.”
