Australia slams Indian newspaper’s ‘Ku Klux Klan’ cartoon

Australia on Friday angrily condemned an Indian newspaper cartoon likening its police to the Ku Klux Klan over their investigations into the murder of a young Indian man. New Delhi’s Mail Today ran the cartoon showing a figure with an Australian police badge wearing a pointed white hood, following the stabbing murder of 21-year-old Indian national Nitin Garg in Melbourne last weekend. The murder of 21-year-old accounting graduate Garg has ignited tensions which have been simmering for 18 months against the backdrop of a series of attacks in Victoria state against Indians. Indian media accused Australian police of not doing enough to protect foreign students who have fuelled a lucrative overseas education industry. But Australian authorities have insisted there are no indications as yet that Garg, who was stabbed in the abdomen as he walked to work at a hamburger restaurant late on December 2, was the victim of a race-hate crime. The cartoon, in which the hooded figure is saying: “We are yet to ascertain the nature of the crime”, was also condemned by Victoria Police Minister Bob Cameron

    I’d deal with broad brush news about the gaming industry but would not touch ‘specific games’ or reviews of games. I am very happy to work mutually with you or anyone on any little way in which we can help move things along for each other so reviewing your work is not an issue. I’d just say remember ‘time’ constraints – though I’d guess that’s pretty obvious – best wishes – Steve
