The Australian government has played down a travel advisory issued by India warning of the risk of violence against Indian students in Melbourne.

The warning followed the killing last week of an Indian graduate, Nitin Garg, who was stabbed to death in the city.

The Indian travel advisory warned of an increase in robberies and assaults.

But acting Australian foreign minister Simon Crean urged Indian leaders to avoid fuelling hysteria and said Melbourne was safe for visitors [that’s a load of BS and Mr Crean knows it.]

India’s travel advisory said acts of violence against Indians had often been accompanied by verbal abuse and fuelled by drugs and alcohol.

Basic safety

“The government advises Indian students studying in Australia, as well as those planning to study there, that they should take certain basic precautions in being alert to their own security while moving around,” the notice said.

The foreign ministry’s eight-point advisory also asked Indian citizens to report “complaints” to Indian diplomatic missions in Australia.

“The number of such incidents of assault as well as of robbery has been on the rise in recent months, which has affected not only Indian students but also members of the larger Indian community in Australia,” it added.

Mr Garg’s murder has received wide media coverage in India, with one newspaper describing his death as proof “that the issue of racist attacks on the Indian community needs to be addressed by the Australian authorities”.

‘Not racist’
[Just anti-‘brown’, anti-‘yellow’ and anti-‘black’]

Australian police have said 1,447 people of Indian descent were victims of a crime in Victoria in the 12 months to July 2008.

But Australian authorities insist there is no racism behind the attacks, only opportunistic criminals.

“What we have to do is to let the investigations take their course, but certainly on the basis of what we’re being told so far, by the Victorian authorities, there’s no basis for a racial motivation behind this,” Mr Crean told Australian radio.

Indian Foreign Minister SM Krishna urged the Australian authorities to “speedily book” the people responsible for the killing of Nitin Garg.

Mr Garg was stabbed to death on his way to a fast food restaurant in Melbourne on Saturday night.

Mr Krishna said the attack was “highly condemnable”.

He said the Australian government should realise such attacks were making public opinion in India “polarised”.

Australia’s Tourism Forecasting Committee (TFC) said Indian students were choosing to stay away because of a series of attacks in mid-2009.

The number of Indian students studying in Australia is projected to fall by about 20% in 2010, the TFC said.

Indian govt should demand the authorities in Australia and NZ to provide a premium-paid life insurance policy for a minimum $25 million for each and every Indian student studying in the two countries.

    More Indian students killed than Australia government admits: Report (Lead)
    July 1st, 2009 – 7:53 pm ICT by IANS Tell a Friend –

    Melbourne, July 1 (IANS) Australian coroners have suppressed the details of the death of over 50 international students, nearly half of them from India, in 2008 “amid evidence the death toll is higher” than the government has admitted, a media report said Wednesday.
    In February, during questioning in parliament, the government said 51 overseas students died in 2008, with 34 dying of “unknown” causes. Fourteen cases were cited as accidents and three as death from illness.

    But the death toll is higher than 51 – at least 54 – with most coming from India, Korea and China, The Age reported Wednesday. Nearly half were Indian, despite Indians holding one-fifth of the total student visas at that time.

    “Details of the deaths of more than 50 overseas students have been suppressed by Australian coroners amid evidence the death toll is higher than the federal government has admitted,” the newspaper said.

    State and territory coroners, under the National Coroners Information System, have refused an application by The Age for data on the deaths of overseas students in the year to November 2008.

    “The nationality and occupation of someone who has died is not required to be automatically recorded,” a spokeswoman for Victorian Coroner Jennifer Coate was quoted as saying Tuesday. Melbourne is the capital of the province of Victoria.

    Chris Nyland, Monash University business professor, said he was concerned that a drive to protect Australia’s lucrative $15.5 billion higher education export market was masking the suffering of foreign students.

    “All countries that compete for the education market should be reporting that information,” Nyland said.

    “And, it would be wonderful if we had good data saying that it was not the case they are harmed at any greater rate than domestic students,” he said.

    Nyland said there was a need for a federal advisory body on student safety, made up of independent members free from “vested interests in seeing this thing dampened down and going away quietly”. He called for mandatory statistical reporting ofinternational students deaths.

    National Union of Students president David Barrow said: “The time has come for a full-scale inquiry. Australian society and government need to see all the facts.”

    Opposition immigration spokeswoman Sharman Stone said she sought the data in February because foreign-student organisations suspected under-reporting of deaths. “To have 34 cited as unknown is an extraordinary statistic,” she said.

    “It will no doubt be raising further anxiety and alarm, particularly in the Indian student community and their parents and relatives and friends,” she added.

    Half-burnt body of Indian found in New South Wales

    Melbourne: Days after 21-year-old Nitin Garg was stabbed to death here, the Australian police on Tuesday said a partially-charred body of another Indian youth was found in New South Wales, even as Canberra asked New Delhi not to whip up “hysteria” over such incidents.

    The body of the 25-year-old victim was found on a roadside near Griffith on December 29.

    The police are in touch with his family in India to help in identification.

    The incident came amid diplomatic efforts by both countries to ease strains in ties over frequent attacks on Indians.

    Media reports said the youth could be a victim of a labour dispute. For, there had been a rise in Indian students working as contract labourers in western NSW and there were complaints that they were being exploited. — PTI
