Indians in Uganda capital Kampala are still frightened and shaken after Thursday attack,which the angry mob killed 2 Indians , & Hindu temples are destroyed.They are protesting against the move to cut down a natural reserve Mabira rain forest from 1932,which is last remaining patches,for expanding the sugarcane plantation,by the Indian owned Mehta group. The govt.proposal had angered many in the country who alleged that environmental costs of slashing the forest would far exceed the economic benefits of plantation.

It is good that the local populace want to conserve the natural environment there. Sounds like the Indians are just trying to exploit them. all the best urban
