deaths of indians abroad: australia and the us

jan 23rd, 2010

i was wondering if you guys noticed any patterns to these.

1. australia, every one of the murdered indians has been a north indian hindu or sikh. no mohammedans.
2. australia. the police are finding it very hard to nab the killers. this suggests it is not an ordinary hit-and-run type of thing, but pre-planned by criminal gangs (my first hypothesis is that these are the lebanese gangs we have talked about before)
3. usa. in 2008-09, more than a dozen andhra students (all hindus) were murdered usually by blacks
4. usa. after samuel reddy died, the murders stopped. was that just a coincidence, or were these people's folks back in andhra being 'encouraged' by samuel to convert? he was a dangerous thug who believed in violence, after all

any theories on these welcome.

questions:
a. are there no indian mohammedans in australia? of course there are. there was the bangalore doctor, whose brother was a suicide jeep driver in the UK, and who fled to india on a one-way ticket, and over whom manmohan spent sleepless nights. how come these guys are never targeted by the australians? one answer is that lebanese mohammedans do not want to kill indian mohammedans
b. is it true that the majority of indian students working in restaurants etc in australia are north indian hindus/sikhs? are south indian students more affluent and therefore do not need to work for a living? (this is not a north-south better-worse question, i am just seeking some data)
c. anybody who has lived in australia, have the white natives been particularly nasty to you? i know from experiences in the us that the whites there are in general not particularly anti-indian
d. anybody know more about the andhra students killed in the us? were they from a particular area? were they from families that had had financial dealings with samuel reddy's goons? any common thread that links them?

"As per reports, there are more than 120,000 Indian students in Australia - predominantly from Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh. Nearly 100 attacks on Indians - mainly students - were reported from Australia during the last year."

As far as the United States is concerned, Andhra Pradesh has been sending the most students compared to other states. This has been the trend for the last 2-3 decades or so. As far as the Africans are concerned they are targetting Indians. I don't think they can distinguish one India from another.

and most of them not via grant but by paying full fees. US univ expanded way beyond their capacity for the last many decades and requires warm bodies to keep the finances.

This is the statistic for the year 1992-93

The largest number of students visiting foreign countries are from Andhra Pradesh (1998), Tamilnadu (1128), Maharashtra (965), Karnataka(763) and Delhi (621). Andhra Pradesh has maintained its substantially pre-eminent position. There have been significant increase of numbers going from Karnataka and Tamilnadu.

A survey of retailers in the leading Indian markets show that students from Andhra are predominant among those seeking part time employment. One of them said that he had always been urging students to take safety very seriously.
