Please Indians some tolerance...

So a Tanzanian girl was mauled, stripped, beaten in Bangaluru. Even made to walk naked. There was somebody who tried to help her, and he too got beaten. It is not as if she did anything. Somebody from Sudan killed a local resident - hit and run case. So she the innocent one gets the honor of paying the price. Now let me tell you all a story. Today, when we eat some food, and have some clothes and all these computers and comforts...some Indians have moved out to their countries, worked there, sent THEIR MONIES to our homes. Our hearths have run because of THEIR MONIES. Does it not make you feel ashamed and ungrateful? Ok...how about this then...your universities and tourist centers are trying to bring in monies by asking students to join courses out here and tourists spend their monies here which again adds to our bank balances. The more we have such incidents, the lesser will tourists be inclined to come to our place, and lesser would be our income from this comparatively easier source of income. Who are you hurting? Your own future generations. I saw some YouTube clippings in which a person from Thailand went into the area where lions were. There was nothing civil that pride of wild beast was doing. Do you see some similarities?
She had absolutely nothing to do with the car that ran over and killed a 35 year old Hesaraghatta resident on Sunday night.

Times have changed. All these changes have occurred in the last 15 years or so. Not that it was much better, but the change in attitude is perceptible right at the doorstep. Part of it is because you all outsource. What happens is some become rich, others remain backward. Disparity increases, and when the richer ones try to change the culture rapidly, they are sort of hit back.

@vandana7 What happens to Indians who work for American companies? Like the ones who are always trying to help me fix my computer issues? Do they move from lower-middle-class to upper-middle-class? Are they the ones whose attitudes change?

@TheHorse ..Yes...they are exposed to different style of living and disparity between a person who has never seen a woman in genes or a woman working late becomes too much. Ironically, women try to make friends with guys so that they can be safe, with those friends. But even those friends get beaten up. Or at times it is those friends who turn out to be rotten.

@vandana7 At some point blame has to be attached to the police. By just standing by and watching it sends out the message that it's acceptable. If the police stepped in, made arrests and the perpetrators were suitably punished then it might make people realise that this is just not acceptable!!

I perfectly understand those sentiments. In fact, it would be nice if all countries decided to do that for an year. Indian government would come to its senses when it is short of monies and immediately amend laws where they need to be amended.

I just have to blame the law enforcement of the city when their responsibility was to prevent civilians uninvolved with the earlier incident and do not have the authority from taking the law into their own hands. How could they (police) be one of them amongst the crowd? I simply cannot understand nor accept any explanations here. I don't think any of them had any idea what they were doing and sadly these people who had beaten up the Tanzanian girl will not be arrested and held accountable for the assault. This is just awful and if this is how incapable the law of India is, then I can only anticipate the worse in time to come for the country, I cannot imagine how and what the Indians in Tanzania will be receiving as a backlash.

@vandana7 The Human Rights Organization is literally a joke as far as many are concern, it has to this day neither educated or liberated any one to motivate a proactive support. Just a bunch of useless empty vessels that just know how to make noise only. So don't expect any thing good or great to come out from this good for nothing organization.

@pgiblett ..It is not out here ..:( They are not trained for anything except how to monitor and manage proper traffic, and report vehicle numbers. They can at the most call the police control room, which is what they did in all probability.

Being hit money-wise or not, it's shameful... disgraceful. Read your comments down the line, and agree that this city is behaving weirdly for some time. Not with foreigners only but in many other areas. And you know what, it all started with trying to preserve the local 'culture'! This is how one loses the sight.

Thats so awful and pathetic. I cant believe people just do this! It is this kind of people who ruin the name of our country. Even she had done anything who gave them the right yo do this. The ones who should prevent this from happening, the Police! Just stood there and watched this crap happening infront of them? Really pathetic.
