When the topic is about violence against Indian students in Australia, why do you automatically have to assume that its because they are Christian?This kind of warped thinking is the top of a slippery slope that leads to the kinds of attacks against minorities in India, that made my parents worried enough to leave.

Famous Australian cricketer Brett Lee was in New Delhi recently to assure Indian students that Australia is still a safe place for Indian students. In recent years Australia has become increasingly popular amongst Indian students.

Given the number of Indian students, why does the Indian media broadcaste every bad thing that happens to every single student? I am starting to think that lazy journalists are out for a quick grap of fame.I am studying in Melbouren and I have Indian friends who are living here to study. One of the girls got a call from her family in India and they were very concerned about what was going on and scared for her safety. At that time she did not even know what they were talking about. She had to look up the matter on Google to find out what it was all about.The Indian media has made this a bigger issue than it really is. Melbourne is a VERY multicultural city. Walking around in the city, most people are from many different countries all getting along just fine. I do not believe for one minute that these Indian students are targeted just because they are Indian. Melbourne clearly loves Indian culture, just look at how many Indian restaurants there are, or how many cinemas there are that playing Bollywood films. However, it is easier to get published if you portray that Indians are being attacked because they are Indians.When will we all wake up and realise that we are all being manipulated by the media?

Instead if they go around holding rallies chanting ‘bharat mata ki jai’ then things will only get worse.I wrote a piece on this topic a few months back. It can be accessed here

Also, the officials cancel their trip to India concerning about security whereas Australian prime minister can visit afghanistan. This clearly shows the willingness of the authority or lack of it to even condemn such attacks open heartedly. The words and actions only come as they sight the business interests of the country.On the other side it is shame on India that we do not have good universities where students can study even after paying lakhs of rupees. Country (leaders and media) is not considering the truth that we are very late in building good infrastructure to satisfy basic needs of young and ever growing population. Students are the losers in this case as they cannot see australia as good prospect (anyways strict visa rules made impossible to make australian study beneficial).Mr. Sibal, its time to act – and act fast. You have good business case to create better universities in india and I think there is a mass ready to pay for good education.
