In the same period of time just as many white people were stabbed to death, shot, beaten, mugged. But when it happens to an Indian, its a race attack. Do you think that muggers and criminals let Indians pass provided they have great racial ethics? And just mug the white guys?India must generate a travel advisory for Indians who are planning to travel to Australia, showing anger is not enough.
BBC News - Indian student numbers to Australia plummetThe number of Indian students wanting to study in Australia has slumped by almost 50%, according to figures from the Australian government.
That's plain wrong. Your own statistics show that Indians are 2.5 times more likely to get assaulted than the general population.In the same period of time just as many white people were stabbed to death, shot, beaten, mugged.
The Hindu : News / International : Indian man set on fire in MelbourneIn another attack on Indians in Australia, a 29-year-old man from the country was set on fire by a group of four assailants here on Saturday, drawing strong condemnation from a student body which called such assaults unacceptable and asked authorities not to “dodge” the issue.
If that is true, (and who knows if it is without a source, I dont think we keep race based statistics) it would not be because they are Indian. Because they work late night jobs as students and walk home after work. The general population doesnt do that.That's plain wrong. Your own statistics show that Indians are 2.5 times more likely to get assaulted than the general population.
In parts of Australia, its not a safe country for *anyone*. Racism as a motive for a crime is very, very rare. Crime however, is not. And in particular areas, you are taking your life into your hands by going there.What I don't understand is why these *****s keep going to Australia inspite of the mounds of evidence that Australia is not a safe country for Indians. Is that Australian PR so valuable that you'd place your life on the line for it? Mind you, these are rich kids, who can afford to pay for an Australian education, not refugees who sell their life's savings to merely land there.
Most come here because they want permanent residence. If it was that bad, nobody would want to stay, they'd leave after they got here.If they want to get that hair stylist's diploma so bad, go to Canada or the US instead. Both are more advanced than Oz anyway.

Attacks not racist, just urban crime: Envoy - India - The Times of IndiaAttacks not racist, just urban crime: Envoy
TNN, 7 January 2010, 03:55am IST
NEW DELHI: A day after the government issued an advisory for Indian students, Australian high commissioner Peter Varghese said the attacks on
Indian students in the country seemed to be "opportunistic, urban" crimes which did not appear to be racist in nature. Australia has refused to acknowledge that the violence against Indians are racist attacks and Varghese on Wednesday said this was only because, as yet, there was no evidence for Canberra to describe them as hate crimes.
"A majority of these have been opportunistic, urban crimes. In some, there would appear to be racial motivation. It’s not that we are refusing to admit that there are racist attacks. But to reach a conclusion there has to be evidence for it. As of now, we don’t know who has done it and so we don’t know the motive," Varghese said.
Meanwhile, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his son Sukhbir Singh Badal, who is deputy chief minister, met Varghese and sought immediate steps to ensure safety of Punjabi students and immigrants in Australia.
Varghese admitted the attacks could see a dip in student admissions from India in this academic year. "I am expecting a decline in 2010. But there are a variety of reasons — the global economic recession, the higher exchange rate, the cost of living and I accept that the perception of safety of students can deter families from sending them," said Varghese.
"I am not in the numbers game. I regret that the incidents have gone up but the number of Indian students applying for programmes has also gone up from 30,000 to 100,000 in the last three years," he added.
Indians in the UK, the USA (even in the most "unsafe" parts), and everywhere else do the same, so do the other ethnic groups (such as the Chinese and Arabs) (which the local populations there "don't"?). They don't end up like the Indians in Australia.If that is true, (and who knows if it is without a source, I dont think we keep race based statistics) it would not be because they are Indian. Because they work late night jobs as students and walk home after work. The general population doesnt do that.
Because the news tells you so. No doubt. Do you have any facts and figures to back that up?]Indians in the UK, the USA (even in the most "unsafe" parts), and everywhere else do the same, so do the other ethnic groups (such as the Chinese and Arabs) (which the local populations there "don't"?).
Australia Attacks on Indians ?Opportunist? Crimes, Envoy Says - BusinessWeekThere are 120,569 Indians studying in Australia, representing 19.1 percent of all international students, the second-biggest nationality after those from China, according to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. The number jumped 27.5 percent as of November 2009 from a year earlier.
And how many Indians have ended up like this, out of the 120,000 or so? Surely there would be tens of thousands dead and mained if there was the tyranny of the racist mob as your press would have us believe.They don't end up like the Indians in Australia.
Police in Sydney, Australia had to be called to Harris Park suburb on Monday night to quell an angry crowd, provoked by two new alleged attacks on Indians.
An Indian man in his 20s was allegedly set upon by a group of men of Middle Eastern appearance, and another Indian was injured in a separate attack.
Why would the crowd attack the Lebanese muslims if white Australians were to blame? Were they confused? Left their glasses at home.Three Lebanese men were then allegedly assaulted by members of the angry Indian crowd and sustained minor injuries, in what is believed to be a retaliation attack.
There is a reason why the Simpsons has the stereotypical character Apu working in the Quik-e-mart, because many Indians work in all night stores and restaurants. Also, they will walk home at night, when Australians will not do so - Australians will drive home. I often see Indians walking home late at night when Im driving home and I want to tell them 'You're INSANE to be walking around here.'So Aussies don't do late-night jobs at all? Whatever that means.
Another 'racial attack' on Indian student in AustraliaRacial attacks on Indian students spread to South Australia with a 22-year-old being allegedly assaulted by a teenager in Adelaide after making "rude" comments about his turban, even as the state premier warned he will not tolerate any form of racism.
Police said the Indian student suffered a broken nose and sore jaw in the incident in Adelaide's busy market area of Rundle Mall on Thursday and that they have arrested a 17-year-old youth in this connection.
