Biden Working 'Very Hard' to Halt Attacks Against Indian Students in the US

 

The White House affirms President Joe Biden's committed efforts to thwart attacks on Indian and Indian American students across the United States. John Kirby, Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council, made this announcement in response to a series of recent assaults on students from India and the Indian American community.

Kirby strongly condemned violence based on factors such as race, gender, or religion, labeling it as unacceptable in the United States. He conveyed that President Biden and his administration are actively engaged in collaborative efforts with state and local authorities to prevent and disrupt such attacks. The goal is to send a clear message that individuals involved in these acts will be held accountable.

The string of tragic incidents includes the death of Vivek Saini in Lithonia, Georgia, who was attacked by a drug addict while working part-time in a department store. Another case involved Syed Mazahir Ali, an Indian student at Indiana Wesleyan University, who was assaulted in February. Additionally, Akul Dhawan of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Neel Acharya of Purdue University reportedly died due to heavy drinking and prolonged exposure to low temperatures in January. Shreyas Reddy Benigeri, an Indian-origin student at the Lindner School of Business in Cincinnati, was found dead in Ohio this month.

Expressing deep concern over these incidents, Indian American community leader Ajay Jain Bhutoria highlighted the urgent need for enhanced safety measures for students pursuing education in the US. He stressed the importance of prompt action by college authorities and local police in addressing these challenges.

The incidents have understandably sparked worry among parents and families in India, emphasizing the need for comprehensive safety measures for Indian students studying in the USA. Bhutoria urged the Indian American community to unite in calling for improved safety measures and support systems to ensure the well-being of students pursuing education in the US.
