Indians migrating to Australia is very common nowadays compared to Indian migration to other parts of the world like USA, UK, Africa etc. In the past decade, Australia has emerged as a leading provider of top-quality education to international students from all over the world.
The number of enrollments by Indian students at Australian education institutions are too high. Right after the education most of the students are opting for the Permanent Residency and settling there. The number of Indians with Permanent Residency has increased dramatically.
However this migration is not bearable by some local Australians who claim that their culture is spoiling, there have been many instances where Indians are being targeted in Australia.
Recently, Onkar Singh, Twenty-four-year-old Indian migrant found a racist handwritten note on his car’s windscreen that says “Indians Go Back Home Now” when he returned from his duty in Melbourne.
Earlier in February this year, another Indian migrant found a similar note stuck to his car in the same way when he was shopping in the suburb of Moorabbin, the note read: “Asians out, Indians out, Australia is full!”
However Australia’s then Race Discrimination Commissioner, Dr Tim Soutphommasane. said “This kind of racist intimidation must be rejected and condemned. It mustn’t be allowed to become part of what is deemed normal or acceptable.”
