Indian Student Protests Racial Attacks in Australia
Outraged over the spate of racial attacks in Australia, hundreds of Indian students on Sunday took out a massive rally here demanding justice for the victims of recent assaults, including 25-year-old Shravan Kumar who is battling for life in a local hospital.
The 'peace rally' organised by bodies like Federation of Indian Students in Australia (FISA) and National Union of Students kicked off from outside the Royal Melbourne Hospital, where Kumar is in a critical condition in the intensive care unit after being stabbed by a screwdriver by a group of teens on Sunday last.
From the hospital, the marchers proceeded to the Victorian Parliament in Spring Street, where they shouted slogans like 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. "We want justice for the victims of racist violence," demanded the students, who also displayed placards carrying messages like 'Save our Students' and 'Stop Racist Violence'.
