Q.

American universities are currently combating the twin challenges of campus violence and competition. Day by day security of Indian students is getting worst there. "USA is better than India is no answer to this....... Are Indian parents sending their wards there to get their dead bodies? The killings could be a continued backlash of hatred against brown skin.......Cops have no better answer than the killings are not racially motivated!......It is time the Indian Government should take up the matter with the U.S Govt to probe on these murders. Please share your views

America has a long history of racially motivated hate crimes. Even after the abolition of slavery after the end of civil war in 1865 the blacks got civil rights only in the 1960s because of the movement led by Martin Luther King Jr. The percentage of murders amongst crimes in US is quite high. One of the reasons for this may be due to easy accessibility to weapons.
Indian students started enrolling in US universities about 20 years ago, got jobs there and started earning in dollars, hence this trend became a fashion. Only people from higher middle class and rich classes can afford education in US because even if you take education loan 20% of the total amount has to be borne by the parents which will not be less. There has been gradual downfall in morals and values amongst the younger generation especially from the higher classes. Presently US is still coming out of recession and unemployment percentage is quite high. American citizens especially youngsters feel these Indians w ...more

Please keep ur emotions aside and let's look @ stats. Statistically speaking, an Indian is about 1000000x as likely to get killed in India than he / she is in the entire world combined, including Australia and the United States. Indians kill and maim Indians on a MUCH larger scale than foreigner's do to us.

A North Indian student is likely to get thrashed in Mumbai than he is in LA.

Cops in the USA are also racially motivated.....

Hi SG,
Good evening,
Americans are known for their GREED. They have victimized the world over and over again and are responsible for most wars and millions of death out of sheer greed. Iraq, syria etc are latest into OIL exploitation.
Here in India, when OBAMA came begging of $ 10 b deal with India, one could see their head. The wife danced for it.
Well, now it is the turn of intelligent Indians, of which whole world is gasping of its' abundance in Indians. With Australia, it all started a tirade of hate, not because of brown or black skin... just because.. they cannot match the talent as well as competition of which Indians are well equipped of. It is a jealous pang lady ! watch out, when greed would give Indians much needed security which Americans keep on flogging to arm twist the Indians to extract extra buck. The same greed would keep on perforating every time they would want a raise in $s. Just let the so called Indians who want to migrate understand this. The Americans would ...more

I think these are isolated incidents. Only handful of reports are not enough to deter these parents who send their kids for a better future.
I think only 0.9% of Indian students are attacked in USA. More than that number of students die here at home, while driving or just simply on walking on road or crossing the road. That does not mean that parents stop their kids from driving or going outside.
