The activists of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) held a protest demonstration against the Government of Australia for their failure to stop the racially motivated attacks on Indian students studying in the country. The protest demonstration was held in the afternoon of Wednesday, the 27th of January in front of the Australian Embassy.
Students shouted slogans and held boards which displayed slogans demanding action against the perpetrators of the attacks and better protection of Indian students there. They also requested the intervention of the United Nations for the protection of Indian students. The National General Secretary and the Delhi In-charge, Shanhnawaz Choudhary and the Delhi President of NSUI, Arun Yadav, were also present.
“Today, on behalf of all students of the country, the NSUI has staged a protest in front of the Australian Embassy (High Commission) against atrocities committed on Indian students in Australia. Indian students are being tortured in the same manner as the British harassed Indians a century ago. We appeal to our Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh to involve the UN in order to ensure the security of Indians in Australia. If these attacks will happen again, the NSUI will stage protest all across India,” said Shahnawaz Choudhary, General Secretary, NSUI.
The protesters tried to march towards the Australian High Commission, but were prevented from doing so by the police stationed there. Since staging demonstrations in the vicinity of the Australian High Commission is not allowed, the protestors were lathi charged and arrested.
