We will protect Indian students: Smith
The Advertiser | May 31, 2009
FOREIGN Minister Stephen Smith says Australia is doing all it can to prevent more attacks on Indian students.
They include two stabbings in Melbourne last week that have left one man fighting for his life in hospital.
Indian authorities believe there’s a racial element at work.
Mr Smith told Network Ten the government is working with the Indian community in Australia and India as well as state authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice and to ensure a safe environment for all international students.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has discussed the problem with Indian Prime Mininster Manmohan Singh.
The discussions come as more than a thousand members of Victoria’s Indian population marched along Melbourne’s main street to protest against the rising number of violent attacks against its community.
The protesters chanted and cheered as they marched down Swanston Street in the city centre.
Commuters had their journeys interrupted as trams were delayed while as the group made its way towards Parliament House.
The Federation of Indian Students of Australia says an increasing number of Indian students are being attacked in what it says are hate crimes.

As per usual, the media and general public are going crazy accusing every second White Australian of being an evil Indian stabbing, Mexican hating racist. As much as I’d like it to be true, it’s not. The Mexican in question, Sol Trujillo, is the former head of Telstra (Australian Telecom). As such, he’s hated for his role as the chief of that company, not for being a Spic.
The Indians are different. They are hated simply for being Indians; yet oddly enough, it’s not White Australians that hate them, it’s imported Black Africans, Middle Easterners and just about every Muslim.
One might think that the Indian “students” are temporary visitors that we have to ensure the safety of at all costs. However, whether they are currently students or not, they are just another load of imported Australians who after their graduation from the halls of “higher learning” will remain in Australia as permanent residents.
So what’s the problem? The problem is that along with the Indians we are importing, we are importing their own racial and religious problems into Australia. Muslims: Africans and Arabs. Even if the Africans and Arabs are Christian or atheist, they still take the side of the most militant of their racial cultures – and that is the Muslim.
How do I know this? It’s been happening for several years now. Each time the media and government decry the behaviour of “Australian racists,” but just sometimes the truth slips through.
Last year in Adelaide, there were a string of racially motivated attacks against Indian university students. The Indian community themselves declared it to be attacks from the Lebanese community.
At roughly the same time in Melbourne, the attacks on Indian students were by Black Africans. See:
And so we know where to lay the blame for the violence – but will anything be done about it? No. To do what the Indian community wants and charge the perpetrators with a “hate crime” will never happen because the perpetrators are not White. However, if a White man such as myself gets into a scuffle with an Indian, you can bet your gonads that he will be charged with a “hate crime” – even if only to set an example for other White racists and to pander to the multicultural community.
How do we end these attacks? Ship them home. The Africans, the Indians, the Arabs and their Jewish pals, and the Asians. Then we can decide who can come into this country and study.
I for one know that as well as our streets being safer, the quality of the students will also greatly increase – mainly because they wont be using the university system as a back door to permanent residency in Australia.
Update – June 1, 2009: Worried parents call student back from Aus
GURGAON/NEW DELHI: Last September, 19-year-old Mukul Khanna had gone to Macquarie University, Sydney, all excited about finishing his BBA there and then probably settling in Australia. Less than a year later, he has returned to his Gurgaon home, called back by parents who hit the panic button after a friend of his was bashed up in Sydney two weeks back.
Sitting in his DLF Phase-V home, Dinesh Khanna, Mukul’s hotelier father tells TOI: “I know my son will now have to drop a year because he won’t get admission anywhere. But I am relieved that he is away from that madness.”
Mukul though says that fear among the Indian student population in Sydney, Melbourne and other cities is on the rise. “They target all Asian students including Pakistani and Sri Lankans. A lot of my Pakistani friends have left the place after being brutally attacked and robbed. Interestingly, the attackers are mostly not locals and are themselves people of foreign origin who resent the fact that Indian students go there in large numbers and take up jobs which may otherwise have gone to them.”
