An Indian in Canada has been allegedly racially abused over a parking dispute by a white woman who yelled "go back to your country" and called him a "Paki", according to a media report.

Rahul Kumar, who moved from India to Canada seven years ago, was also called a "loser" with "shit-coloured skin", CTV news reported. Kumar filmed the encounter outside his home on his cellphone last week. In the video, a woman yells at Kumar over a parking dispute.

"You can film all you want Paki. Yes Paki, that's you with the shit-coloured skin," the report said, citing the video. The woman who made the comments called CTV Edmonton after the report aired and criticised the coverage, saying that she is "not a racist."

Asked whether the parking disagreement justifies the racist language used, she said, "It doesn't matter if it justifies it or not; it happened and that's where I took it."

She is unapologetic. "I have no problem with what happened," she was quoted as saying by the report.  -- PTI
