Indians protest Pulwama terrorists in Sydney Australia

Over a thousand Indians from all backgrounds gathered in Sydney today to pay their last respects to 44 Indian brave soldiers who died at the hand of religious fanatics. The incident took place in Pulwama, Kashmir, India when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive laden vehicle in to a bus transporting a convoy of Police.

Julia Finn, MP Consoling the community

The meeting was also attended by various MPs and Councillors of Australian politics of both sides. MP Tony Issa representing Mp David Elliot, Minister of Counter Terrorism assured the Indian community of his government’s support in this hour of grief. MP Julia Finn expressed her condolences and told how she had come face to face with the effects of terrorism during her visit just after Mumbai terror attack. Others including MP Jeff Lee, and councillors Reena Jethi, Krishan, Sameer Pandey and Suman Saha also consoled the Indian community.

Indian community in Sydney

It is ironic that this condolence meeting was held in Jubille Park, Parramatta where President of India has inaugurated a statue of Mahatama Gandhi only a few months ago. The meeting was jointly organized by 34 different Indian and Hindu organizations in Sydney.

Speaking at the occasion, organizer, Ramya implored Australians to wake up and recognize terrorism as what it is, an anti of everything that the western societies stand for. It is anti democracy, anti humanity and anti peace. India has been  victim of religious fanatic terrorism for 960 years. India had been pleading with the world that terrorism that is directed towards India is not an only an Indian problem but is going to be a problem for the entire world. Alas, the world woke up only after 9/11 and other incidents in Europe and other western nations.

Paying their homage to the fallen CRPF

He asked Australian law makers to ensure that their parliament and institutes are not used by forces disguised as NGOs and ideologies disguised as rouge nations to give respectability to terrorism.

All present paid their last respects to the brave fighters who have lost their lives by offering flowers.
