    The reason why i stated it perhaps is hate crime is becuase its been on cnn, indian news channels and even Pakistani news channels several months and now this .. the raceist acts being performed by some in Aus had been towards indians in general speically indian students thats where it all started from so put one and two togehter wat do u get ..:sniper: again i was not there i can't say it was but perhaps might seem like it was becuase of all the hatered towards indians going on in Aus. :coffee:

    :lol: You're right. We should take lessons from the British media. The home of tabloid journalism. The nation that gave the world "News of the world", "daily mail" and of course "the sun". Or do you mean the Pakistani media? Less said about it the better.

    The thread has nothing to do with the inadequacies of the police in India.

    Australia is a first world nation that invites foreign students to its soil. It is the Australian governments duty to protect them. Otherwise Australia will lose one of its biggest sources of income.

    If Australia can't guarantee safety of Indian students - 20 attacks a month apparently - why would Indians go study there?

    To use an example closer to home, do you have any idea what kind of pressure is put on the police by the media/embassy/government when a crime is committed against a foreigner in India? If India can't guarantee safety for tourists, why would they come here?

    This is not a case of Indian media's bullying. The Australian government (or any western government for that matter) goes on a bloody overdrive when something happens to its citizens in India - Graham Staines anyone?, why wouldn't we do the same?

    TOPGUN, totally appreciate your honest view matey as this is a common result. I only think like the way I do as I get to deal with this sort of matter daily.

    The fact that the media pick up on a single issue and highlight as though Indians are being victimised in a surge of violence towards them is just not true. The Police hands are ALWAYS tied and very reluctant to explain the whole facts for operatinal and investigatative reasons, but there is overall, a hell of more crime towards others then just the Indians.

    The problem mainly lies with Indians themselves, they need to be aware of the dangers and plan how to deal with them through Neighbourhood policing strategies, policing plans by local authorities and community meetings. This will make things easier for them to not become easy targets.

    Well, about the media part of it, I can argue this until the cows come home, but Burka Dutt will suffice for now ....but this issue would go off topic if continued......

    If the thread had nothing to do with the Indian Police then it also has nothing to do with the Indian Police safeguardiing foreigners by your government also, as I was comparing situations, but if you think my statement had nothing to do with this thread, then nor the hell does your comment.

    Now, for your last comment...there are about 95000 Indian students in Australia, 20 attacks a month, although you did not specify what these attacks are, public order offences, assaults, breach of the peace, etc etc etc what exactly and what records did you use to come to this figure.

    I can tell you from personal experience that we crime roughly 12000 crime a year in my local policing area. This would mean that there are about 200000 crimes a year in one district, and these crimes involved all recordable offences. You can now compare that by dividing it by 12 months making it 16667 crimes a month. Compare that to the whole of Australia and you can figure out the small percentage of crime being committed where the victims are Indian. (20 by your figures)

    Australia has a far more competent Police force then India and there Policing style is far more advanced whereby they at least record crime.:cheers:

    Bukha dutt is a fantastic journalist. If a tad over emotional. However, fair enough, i won't debate the media part of it.

    I wasnt talking about safeguarding or the lack off by the police of the respective nations. I was defending the reactions of the Indian government/media/public. When a crime is committed against a foreigner in India, the reaction of the Indian media itself is over the top. The recent rape of a foreigner in Goa was headlines news, despite god knows how many rapes committed in India everyday. The foreign government in question goes ballistic issuing advisories and what not. The foreign media is no different. So why are people expecting the Indian media to act differently when an Indian student gets attacked in a foreign nation?

    Mostly robbery and assault. 20 attacks a month may not be an exact figure. However, 20 attacks were reported in a spate of 6 weeks in Victoria alone. If 20 Australians would have been attacked in India in a months time, how would the Australian government/media/ people react?

    There is a difference between crimes committed against a foreign national and a citizen. Indian students have been attacked - students who are invited to attend Australian universities. Students who contribute to one of Australia's biggest markets. If attacks continue, why would Indians continue to study in Australia?

    Similar attacks against Indian students on a regular basis do not happen in the US/UK/Canada. But they do happen in Australia.

    No, I asked you where you got your figure from about 29 a month, and even then that is 20/95000 x100 = 0.02% of Indians, studying in India as victim. I do not think anyone would moan about that other then Indians themselves. Why would Indiands study in Australia?, well go somewhere else then, simple as.

    There are many many many victims in UK who are Indian and Chinese victims of crime here, especially Chinese, it isn't highlighted as we refuse to give extra treatment to such minority groups as fair practice and treatment is for all citizens.

    I don't see any reason why any country should go out of their way to give extra support to anyone, and not give that same treatment to their own citizens first, who deserve better always as nationals as it is their country.

    I think if this attitude continues, then far right group will eventually end up attacking Indians more often then now and will set a dangerous example by their continuing whining.

    To a non-indian we all look alike, and are treated the same. I know because I witness it.

    Pakistanis are light skinned? Obviously I have met different ones. To white people we are virtuallt identical. Outsiders literally cannot tell the diference.

    Once you people leave the sub-continent you will find that you have more in common than you think.

    Obviously you have your views.

    India urges Australia to punish killer of Indian student - People's Daily Online
    08:31, January 05, 2010

    Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna Monday called on the Australian government to punish the killers of Indian student Nitin Garg.

    The Australian government "is duty bound and morally bound to investigate and bring the culprit to book," Krishma said in a statement to the press at the southern city of Bangalore.

    "That is the least the Australian government can do and that is what we expect," Krishna said.


    Indian High Commissioner Sujatha Singh in Canberra has taken up the issue with the Australian government "in the strongest possible terms", he said.

    Garg, 21, an accounting graduate from Punjab, was stabbed to death in West Footscray Saturday while on his way to work, according to local media reports.

    The deadly accident took place in the wake of a wave of attacks upon Indian students in Australia last year.

    There isn't 20 attacks a month. Ffs look at the facts or don't speak.

    The government will no provide individual security for a minority of people. australia is a safe pleace, indians just need to smarten up and know where not to go.

    Like me and many other people have said, criminals will target immigrants because they are new to the country and are easy targets for robbery and theft.
