Balance on the Indian Attack Stories

I may not agree with every conclusion, but some decent balance and some reasonably fair perspective. Warranted in the broader picture of the debate.

It’s simple: India doesn’t want to see its citizens harmed

In a few elegant words, Tharoor cut to the heart of the issue and it is worth quoting him in full: ”For an Indian mother to hear that her son has been assaulted in Australia, it little matters to her whether he was assaulted because of his race, or because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, or because he was the wrong colour or the wrong height, or was carrying an iPod. She doesn’t want her son to be assaulted.
