‘Indian student attacked in Melbourne, motive unclear’

The most creative [sic] headline of the week title goes to IBN Live, Press Trust Of India.

A 28-year-old student, who remains anonymous, got off from a bus at Keilor Plains train station in NW Melbourne and was attacked by two men, who repeatedly bashed him on the head with a baseball bat.

“Callous and unprovoked” is how Constipated Kevin Squires of Footscray police described the attack:

“They just kept whacking him in the back of the head.”

The victim received 20 stitches to close the gash on his head.

It’s estimated that up to 200 Indian students in Australia have been hurt in racially motivated gang attacks in 2009. Most of these attacks go unreported out of fear.

Aussies Aren’t Smart

India’s 95,000 students represent about 20 per cent of all foreign students in Australia,  an education industry worth 15.5 billion dollars (US$13.4 billion), AFP reported.

Fijian-Indian student beaten to near death

Suva might have been safer than NZ!

I brought my children to New Zealand from Suva to get away from violence there. Victim’s Mother

Killing, beating, raping and abusing “coloured” people in Apartheid New Zealand is a common occurrence.

The following report is yet another proof, as if anyone didn’t believe it, of the extreme violence perpetrated against Asians and other “coloured” people in New Zealand.

NZ government [sic] must compensate the “coloured” victims of racial attacks for each and every incident of racial violence perpetrated against them.

Starting with the crime of ‘racial slurs’, the victim should receive $25,000 and a formal apology from the prime minister for each and every incident.

In the case of racial murders, the family of each victim should be compensated no less than $25million by NZ govt.

Victims’ compensation for all other racial crimes should be set on a “sliding scalewithin the two limits described above.

Victims of racial violence in New Zealand should be entitled to the same level of compensation, as are the Jewish residents.

Do it!

Christchurch schoolboys attack Fijian-Indian student

NZPA August 7, 2009, 9:05 am

A racist attack on a Fijian-Indian student at a Christchurch school was not isolated, the student’s mother says.

Mohammed Akif, 15, suffered a cracked cheekbone, chipped tooth, cut to the head and bruised ribs when he was set upon by other students on Tuesday, The Press reported.

He arrived in Christchurch only three weeks ago to join his mother, who had a two-year work permit.

Zeenat Akif said her son was walking along a corridor when a group of students who had been sent out of a classroom attacked him.

He was punched, kicked and pinned against a wall, and called racist names, she said.

It wasn’t the first time the group had bullied her son but he had not reported other incidents to teachers, she said.

She had spoken to other parents in the Indian community who said their children had been bullied too.

Linwood College principal Rob Burrough said a 15-year-old boy involved in the attack had been suspended, and another boy who had used racial taunts had also been suspended, and “his future at school is also under question now”.

Mr Burrough said the school would pay Mohammad’s medical fees and seek compensation from his attacker.

The attack was caught on security cameras, and was unprovoked.

The school was embarrassed, disappointed and angered by the attack, he said.

Mrs Akif said she brought her children to New Zealand from Suva to get away from violence there.  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10589251

If YOU are as outraged as we are, email Dr Manmohan Singh, the PM of India, and let him know how you feel.
