Indian students are being “singled out” and attacked in Australia and this aspect needs some introspection by the government of that country, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said here on Tuesday.

Pointing out that over 1 lakh Indian students pursue higher studies in the U.S., the Minister said “we do not have such complaints from the U.S.”

“Why is it only in Australia could there be attacks?” Mr. Krishna said.

Terming the attacks on Indian students as “unacceptable”, Mr. Krishna said “we want attacks on Indian students to stop forthwith”.

“These attacks are directed against students of India. There are students from other parts of the world but India is being singled out. This needs some introspection on part of the Australian government and the governments of New South Wales and Victoria,” Mr. Krishna said.
