[Video] New Delhi: Foreign Minister SM Krishna today voiced his concern on the safety of the Indian community in the United States to the country's Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton after the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. Krishna added that he had suggested some points to Clinton to ease the comfort level of the Indian community. President Barack Obama said that Americans need to do more soul searching to find ways to reduce violence in the wake of the deadly weekend shooting spree at the Gurudwara in Wisconsin that killed five men and one woman.

Many more people were murdered in Chicago recently Mostly Obama’s “people”. Many more people were killed on the highways. The list goes on.

Indians have it great in America. They are hard working and peaceful people. The shooter was a moron and is now in hell. What he did has NOTHING to do with anyone else. Not a damn thing.

Sikhs are great folks. Very peaceful and self-reliant.

Krishna needs to shut the hell up. These were Americans. Period! It is none of his business and the reality is that gobs of people in India have been offed for various reasons in the last few days. That is Krishna’s problem and what India needs to be addressing. Not events internal to the United States.

> Krishna needs to shut the hell up....

Two points: I wonder if the US would be asking for the safety of Americans in India if US-origin people has been massacred by an Indian in India; secondly, Krishna is probably playing politics for domestic consumption.

Would have been true in the 80’s during Punjab militancy and Delhi Riots. Its been 3 decades since. Sikhs in the US have regularly been complaining about numerous instances of harassment and racial attacks in US since 9/11. And now this.

Numerous huh? As in how many? Then get back on track and talk about murders not harassment and “racial attacks” because that’s the context here. Then show me that no Sikhs have been murdered in India “since the ‘80s” to back that up.

“These were Americans. Period!”

Highly doubt they are ALL Americans. Many of them could he permanent residents, guest workers, foreign students, dual citizens or NRI (person of Indian origin). And in all of those cases it becomes Krishna's job to expression concern. And the safety of all of those people IS Indian's business.

When you kill Indians you do the “splainin” to India.

“As in how many?”

Is that such an important question? How many is too many for you? Sikh community leaders themselves have been complaining about racial attacks ever since 9/11.

And get some perspective kiddo. There are 20 million Sikhs in India. While there are only 250 thousand Sikhs in all of US. Random murders is one thing while targeted hate crime against a very tiny little community is a whole different thing.

And they aren’t all good people either. Here’s a story about a half dozen Sikhs here illegally, charged with selling bath salts and money laundering.

I’m sure most Sikhs are valuable additions to their communities, but these birds are exceptions.

If the number of “targeted hate crimes” isn’t important then your point that they happen isn’t important. Go waste someone else’s time with your nonsense. Only a fool would think that India is a safer place to be than India.

Sir, what about the safety of Christians in your country?

No answer? Not surprised.

And the safety of Hindus, for that matter.

Muslims killed 80 million Hindus to conquer India

http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/TQBFHTDDGV8CBQ6F9

Muslims continue to massacre Hindus and others in India.

What a lame excuse ,for Killing Sikhs. Christian massacare is not some thing you should be worried about. They are converts and Indian by birth while clashes happens between right hindu groups when the comes to know that Missionaries luring poor and innocent people by disregarding Hindus Gods.
Get your fact right.

The Wisconsin killings are a tragedy for America because the inexcusable outrage was committed by an American. But violence perpetrated by Sikhs upon other Sikhs has not been, unfortunately, unusual. That violence unfortunately dwarfs this incident. Save a bit of your entirely justifiable outrage for what goes on in India. And while here, do take my advice as a fellow American citizen, and stay out of those "Patel Motels."

Sikh upon Sikh or Hindu upon Sikh or Sikh upon Hindu violence does not make a racially motivated hate crime more accaptable and it very lame to raise that as a defense. Try something else.

As for the “Patel Motels”.... its mostly the White trash Americans who live in those motels not Indians. And I don't see those white trash people being able to afford anything better anytime soon. So those motels will be staying in business for the foreseeable future.

And given the increase in the number of homeless people out on the streets and number of trailer parks in the US.......the “Patel Motel” might actually look like Ritz Carlton.

Btw the Ritz-Carlton here in Boston is now owned by Indians... Tata Group ;)

Kindly do not refer to our fellow American citizens as its mostly the White trash Americans who live in those motels...

(A) We need their votes. and
(B) It could possibly be construed as racist.

As far as the Wisconsin massacre being a racially motivated hate crime ... why yes it was. Hopefully, this sort of incident shall become rather rarer in our new country than elsewhere.

And kinda rich of you to draw out the race card right after taking pot shots at “befouling” “dirty” Patels on your first commentary on a thread about Sikh killings.

Thank your beloved news media for not making the distinction clear, since they don’t want to upset the Muslims.

Thinking people know the difference. Low life racists do not. It sucks, but there you have it.
