Attacks on Indians are isolated incidents: Oz envoy
Australia’s foreign minister and Australia’s High Commissioner to India have different versions on violent attacks on Indians students in Australia. Is it a political ploy to tackle the issue in favor of Australia? Certainly, the foreign minister’s statement in the parliament carries more weight from the statement of High Commissioner in a function in Thiruvananthapuram.
The High Commissioner Mr. Peter N Varghese must be aware about the plight of Indian Students in Australia. The word panic is not just appropriate to describe the situation there. Many students have already left the country leaving their studies in the mid path bearing huge monetary loss. Hope, Mr. Varghese would not describe this with some selective reasons that put Australia’s head high.
There is system for everything in Australia. Even if some come to Australia in the guise of students in search for jobs, they can be caught and sent back. Surely, the native Australians should not kill them or create an atmosphere of horror for all Indian students. The reform in the immigration rule has nothing to do with the attacks on students, which Mr. Varghese has mixed up to clear the guilt from the shoulder of Australia. How the foreign minister accepted the fact that some of the attacks are of racial nature?
Australia needs Indian skilled labors to enhance their economy, and for that, it should clear its mind for protecting them. There is a tendency of the Australian government agencies to protect the attackers, rather being harsh on them. This must stop.
Varghese is of Indian origin and wants to pacify Indian people with no valid reasons. Why is he doing so is best known to him.
