Skip to comments.Indian origin doctor stoned in racial attack (UK: Hindus attacked for the actions of Muslims)
Posted on 08/12/2005 6:23:48 AM PDT by Gengis Khan
An Indian origin doctor in Britain was pelted with stones and verbally abused by a gang of youths in a racially motivated attack following the London bombings.
Yashen Maharaj, 28, who was attacked on July 23, had worked as part of Medway National Health Service Trust's standby team to treat victims of the July 7 London bombings.
"The doctor was verbally abused and more disturbingly had missiles, including large stones and rocks thrown at him, one of which hit the doctor on the back," a hospital spokeswoman said.
Maharaj continued to attend his duties but declined to talks to newsmen.
The spokeswoman said: "Fortunately, the doctor was not seriously injured in the incident, but was extremely shaken and dismayed."
"The racial abuse from the youths was particularly disgusting, as it was aimed at the very people who, on the day of the bombings, were on standby as part of the Trust's London Emergency Planning procedure and could potentially have been needed to treat the very same victims from the bombings," she said.
"The Trust would like to make it very clear that it will not tolerate any racial abuse on any of its staff on or off the hospital premises, particularly in the tensions following recent terrorist events in London," she said.
English punks aren't known for their impressive brain power.
I knew this was comming.
Hindus would have to pay for the actions of Muslims.
Neither are American punks.
Some idiot here shot a Sikh after 9/11.
part of the problem with a conflict with a religion is you cant tell who is a follower of the religion. It's like looking for a communist. I think a couple of thugs in the UK just dicovered that. How much you wanna bet they were drunk and just saw some foreign looking guy.
however some sikhs are violent too!
Perhaps we should send the NCAA over there to clean house...Oops, wrong Indians. Sorry.
When trouble threatens a country, those outsiders are made the scapegoat....as threats to the security of the country.
Happens, unfortunately. Some guy here in Pennsylvania called me an Iraqi at the start of the war. I just could not stop laughing. Needless to say, that left him very confused.
Shouldn't you be drawing a distinction between Hindu-Sikh-Christian(Indians) "outsider" who form the richest community in the US and UK and have greatly contributed to the country's economy, and the Muslim(Pakistani-Arab) "outsiders" who become the poorest community and the biggest trouble makers anywhere they go?
Perhaps the british government should make muslims wear some kind of marking on their lapel--perhaps a yellow crescent?--so travesties like this do not happen again.
Hmmm. . .good point.
Now you are "profiling" the English.
The same thing happened in Mesa AZ after 9/11 where a Hindu was murdered.
"So. . .are there no muslims with a "hindu" name?
Are there no non-muslims with a muslim names?"
Muslims keep their names from the Koran, Hindus dont.
Hindus have (mostly)Sanskrit names. The Muslims never keep a Sanskrit name. For a Muslim, to keep a Hindu name instead of a Koranic name is akin to sacrilege.
In India most of the times you can easily figure out the religion or the eihnic community a person belongs to, just from the name. Most surnames in India are typical of a certain geographic region within India. And in case of Muslims, there names are almost always ......Arabic or Persian (both name and surname). And in India, only the Muslims keep Arabic names. You can always tell a Muslim from the name.
So you can be 100% certain "Yashen Maharaj" isnt a Muslim.
Go ahead and take a look at the pictures of the 9/11 victims. A lot of black, hispanic and Asian faces. Or maybe you should look at the victims of terrorism in Kashmir. Or Iraq. Or the dozens of black Africans who died in the embassy bombings in the 90's.
Terrorists don't really care what race their victims happen to be
When white people seek revenge its termed "racial" attacks.
Fine. We can call these little little jackals who attacked an innocent Indian doctor due to nothing more than the color of his skin terrorists, if you'd like.
Iceberg, Goldberg, it's all the same to me.
Isn't this the Muslin's fault too? If they would practice their religion peacefully nobody would be being beaten up.
No the Mooseslimes can't be held accountable for their actions. They are simply doing what their religion tells them to do.
We should all just offer ourselves up for slaughter so that they will have freedom of religion here and eventually be able to put the US under Shiara law (sp). In Britain too
It is said that it's only the middle class that has to worry about societal convention. The rich don't give a sh!t because they can buy their way out of trouble. The poor don't give a sh!t because they've got nothing to lose. It's a beautiful thing really. Sorry about the doctor.
A few Sikhs were attacked in the US following 9-11.
They probably didn't ask the fellow his name.
Isn't that "Sharia"? It sounds so nice. If I ever have a daughter, I'm going to name her "Sharia". /sarc.
I would recommend that all Indians wear red dots on their foreheads, so as to make it clear they are Hindus. Sikhs can wear their orange turbans but should have a sign saying "I am not a filthy Muslim" or something like that.
Could be Sharia, my pig arab is rather rusty :)
There was a joke in India that the Americans are so poor in geography and general knowledge that they actually believe they have taken out OBL everytime they kill a Sikh. (something to that extent)
Now we might have a joke on the Poms.
.....or rather it was something like the CNN reporting on the possibilty of OBL being taken out everytime a Sikh was killed.
Men dont wear dots.
Can you tell me what sort of name "Asif Shoukat" is?
>>There was a joke in India that the Americans. . .<<
Ethic profiling an entire nation?
>>In India most of the times you can easily figure out the religion or the eihnic community a person belongs to, just from the name. <<
Hmmm. . .not true in the US, by the way.
Can you tell me what sort of name "Asif Shoukat" is?
Muslim. (maybe Pakistani or Indian Muslim).
the turban probably didn't help.
I don't know about that, but then I am yet to meet a Christian with a name having Muhammad, Salim or Abdullah.
Even Tennessee Williams will attest to this! ;^)
Oh, yeah, we're in effect saying on this thread, multi-culti works, you just haveta have "impressive brain power" to tell the Injuns from the muzzle limbs! Otherwise, it's regular paradise!
And most probably Pakistani.
"Ethic profiling an entire nation? "
Dont you guys make jokes on Hadji and Apu?
Thats news! Muslims rarely use Anglicised or European or Roman names. Of course, they do have Jewish names like Joseph and Abraham in the Islamic form of Youseph and Ibrahim.
Is this what you mean by "American" names? Most Muslims who follow Islam don't use any name other than those from the Koran.
Yep, some shanty white trash punks in Queens severely beat up a Sikh in Queens about 21/2 years ago calling him "Bin Laden."
Disregard previous FReepmail.
Misread what you had stated.
Indeed it is news.
Seems for a few years now the Nation of Islam was all the rage and converts did indeed change their names.
However, converts do not always join the NOI, and are not always changing their names.
This is just one that was reported. Many many others go quietly into the night
When the yobs and bovver boys go after the wogs, they really couldn't give a shit about the wog, whatever the religion. That's not why they're pounding the crap out of some poor schmuck - they crave the "ultra violence" as a precursor to the old "in-out" - it's like an aphrodisiac to them.
Yup, being called a Paki while getting stomped on is salt on the wound.
>>The two countries, Pakistan and Bangladesh, were establisted, by Partition in 1947, following riots, between the Hindus and Muslims....
Thanks for that concise and precise historical lesson.
Who says Americans don't know squat?
