As one Indian blogger wrote what if Australians got bashed in India? Well we know it happens all the time and worse. But what would we do he has asked. Bloody nothing.
How many here have heard of Graham Staines? Not many I bet. Well lets go.
Australia-born missionary, children, burnt alive in Orissa. January 23, 1999
A missionary and his two sons aged eight and ten were burnt alive when miscreants set their vehicle afire at Manoharpur village in Keonjhar district early on Saturday morning.
Official sources said Graham Stewart Stains, an Australia-born missionary who was secretary-cum-treasurer of the Evangelical Missionary Society of Mayurbhanj, and his sons Philip and Timothy were sleeping in a station wagon when a mob shouting slogans doused it with petrol and set it afire.
"My husband and sons tried to get out of the burning vehicle, but were stopped by the attackers," said Stains' wife, Glades, in Baripada.
Have you ever heard of this story people? I bet you haven't.
Stains, who came into India in 1965 to do missionary work, was also associated with the Leprosy Home Mission in Baripada and had been working among lepers in Mayurbhanj district for the last 32 years.
Sounds like a bad person now doesn't he.
What happened? What did Australia do?
In a statement, Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer said Staines devoted his life in serving others and it was ''unconscionable that he and his two sons should have been killed in this horrific way''. January 25, 1999
Did we march in the streets and call India a Racist Backward nation? Nope.
Is that because India is a tolerant society? Nope.
'Anti-Christian attacks started in Nov 1997'
Back to Mr Staines

Wadhwa panel summons Dara Singh May 18, 1999
After the barbaric incident, Dara Singh went underground and the police are still clueless as to his whereabouts
Ok 5 months after this brutal murder someone has been identified. Now how many people are involved in this? Reports suggest up to 70 people helped kill these Australians. 5 months later they still have no arrest. Not with standing that this is a hate crime. No doubt about that.

US panel links lifting sanctions to status of minorities
Taking up cudgels on behalf of Christians and Muslims in India, a US Commission has linked the lifting of the remaining economic sanctions against New Delhi to improvement in the condition of minorities
Finally in 2003 Dara Singh and 13 others are sentenced. All get life. Nothing about a hate crime is mentioned? Funny that. Must be normal for people to go around and burn to death children just because they are Christians? Feel sick yet?
Wondering why they are crying for our blood over these students? I sure as hell am. Hypocrites the lot of them. Feel like a demo in downtown Deli?
