Racial attack on a Sikh in US
A Sikh graduate student who worked as a pizza delivery boy was thrown into a swimming pool and was brutally assaulted in an incident in West Texas, United State. The police recorded the crime as a mere misdemeanor.
IN A shocking incident in West Texas, United State, a Sikh graduate student was thrown into a swimming pool and was brutally assaulted. The more shocking was that the police recorded the crime as a mere misdemeanor, which requires no jail time to be served.

The young man worked as a pizza delivery boy. On one such delivery, four men began eating without paying, hurling racial expletives all the while. They then threw him into a swimming pool kicking his head and body, beating him every time he tried to escape. After a 20 minute long struggle, the student escaped into his car with two men in pursuit. He has now been treated for his injuries but the perpetrators of the crime are still roaming freely.

The Sikh Coalition is taking action to ensure that they are brought to justice. But police still refuse to register the incident as a hate crime. But the student has moved after he continuously received death threats.

An important thing to note is that racial attacks on the Indian students and public in general don’t seem to end. As a result it poses a lot of threat to the people living there and all the future applicants in India who dream of making a life abroad.

Australia and the United States are two very significant countries as far as studies are concerned. A large proportion of Indian students pursue their higher studies in these countries. The government needs to make stringent laws to ensure the security of all the Indian citizens and assure that no more racial attacks are seen in the future or apart from earning foreign exchange they will definitely lose the trust of the Indians.
