Good idea Pankaj... stay where you are. It is obviously better than Australia and the racism that exists in your mind.

****BREAKING NEWS: Koala bites Indian man.... those racist Aussies are now training the local wildlife to attack Indian.

****BREAKING NEWS: White Aussie found dead.... police believe it is ANTI-RACIST element using packs of mad koalas.

Get over it!! You are creating a monster where non exists and trying to hype a situation... if you don't like the "racists" there are about 225 other countries on the planet!

Zambezi king,
Nobody mentioned the word 'racist' in this thread except you. Please don't divert the discussion towards 'Racism', it will end up futile.

I'm absolutely and totally amazed that any of you are surprised at this! Australia is a huge country - did any of you really believe that Australia was crime free?????????????? The world is a dangerous place, wherever you go you must take care

Pull the other one!!

Why then the post "Breaking news" so that all will be drawn to read it?
Why no details just that he was Indian and found dead?
Why direct me to the link you gave me?

I was specifically carrying on in the same sensationalist and over reactional tone that the post heading suggested and the unhelpful suggestions by Pankaj. Crime is crime, it is found everywhere, even in Aus...

OK. I think we have discussed enough of this. It should not become like the 'other thread'. I request the mod to close this too.

I've not returned to the 'other thread' but I think people should get be a bit more freedom in voicing their opinions - to go or not to go being the question.

Please don't close out discussions on this hot issue of the moment. Slight emotions and heated opinions are to be expected but it's not like there's any personal attack or abuse.

I agree and have been monitoring this post. The issue has been raised and as you say, no abuse or personal attacks have taken place! Sadly we cannot and should not close our eyes to these issues, but it isnt an exclusive "indian" problem! But maybe for now it needs to be aired and opinons need to be heard

When the Aus mods are about they may feel differently and decide to close it or it may have become a "warzone" by then.

Guys... lets try not to promote hatred in this community..

Racism is everywhere and unfortunately it is there in Aus as well as India..

The only solution is, Vic police needs to strengthen the security so that these kinda issues won't happen again and not only Indians, everyone living there will be safe.

I seriously believe the aus govt is going to do something positive since the edu business has already started to suffer. So lets hope something positive will be done.

Lets fight against crime, and not against each other..

sunilphillip was right......
we are here to help each other, let us fight against crime not against any particular race.
I hope everyone would have noticed in this forum.....an question from american is answered by pakistani..an question from pakistani is answered by indian etc etc.......so its clear that majority of the ppl are really good irrespective of their race...........but very very few ppl spoil the culture and image of the whole country........we should all unite together and fight against crime whoever does that, they should be punished very hard. The punishment should create fear for every criminals....only police cannot give security for each and everyone individually.....as we help each other in this forum , we need to help and support all the migrants in the OZ tooo.....

Read this. Wise students have chosen not to goto Australia

Indian student visa applications fall by half

:clap2:
I think the drop in student visa's is not related to the violence, but to the changes made in the visa process, making it more difficult to obtain.

A couple of interesting things in the article related to the recent attack:

Vasan Srinivasan, president of the Federation of Indian Associations of Victoria, plans to hold a media conference in India to say that last weekend's murder was not a racist attack.

''To characterise such a criminal act as 'racist' inflames unnecessarily community sentiments and fears and presents a totally misrepresented picture of life as it really is in Melbourne,'' he said yesterday.

''Sadly, on the very same evening a young Australian man too was the victim of a random stabbing.''
Following the advice of Foreign Ministry to 'take 'certain basic precautions in being alert to their own security while moving around'', is just common sense.

I think you just have to accept that racism exists everywhere. Acknowledge its existence but don't accept it.

THERE ARE MANY MANY PLACES WHERE RACISM IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM... AUSTRALIA IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

I work for company where everyone other then me is aussie. I see them as one of the most polite and well mannered persons. I went to new year celebration in darling harbour. The roads were jam packed and i see so many ladies all around. Everyone was enjoying the moment with no trace of voilence. Rather then being emotional lets analyze what we see.
I was in india when similar incidents took around 5 month back. Every news channel aired these news. The news channel's bread and butter is TRP rating. The more sensational news they present, the better is viewership hence more they earn by ads. Lets me put one logical question " In last 5 months were there no crimes in au? Was there no murder in Au? If there were few why did they not aired by news channel? simply because the person died was not indian and it doesnot make sensational news in india. Kindly dont take me wrong. Like everyone else i gets shattered to see such video on air where innocent perple are targetted but i m writing this so that we realize beyond emotions.
Crime is part and parsel of every country and au has better numbers then many other country.
Since Au is very expensive, many students have to work night shift. While going and returning from work at night, they become easy prey to criminals. I am not completely denying the fact of racial feeling. There is racial attitude but thats unfortunately true with most other countries as well.
hope this helps

The other people who died being knived is of no concern to them, hence it doesn't merit mentioning - let alone being broadcast on primetime news. That poster who suggested no Indian should go to Oz should have said, "Let no one go there. It's very unsafe." Now that's politically correct and non-racist.
