Realm Of Randomness

Indian student accused of fake terrorist plot to bomb his school! Read the article here

As I was reading the details of this incident, (and didn’t know who the accused was) I was thinking to myself – This is bad. This can go in one of two ways:

1) Either it’s one of the Trench coat Mafia type followers – read Columbine school shooting tragedy
2) Or this is going to be one of the ‘Jihadi’ type plots

The LAST thing I was expecting was a desi guy named ‘Sujith Kumar’ to come up with something so sinister. Anthrax ? Terrorist plot ? Bomb ? Why oh why ?

It is bad enough that (a) All Middle eastern people are the targets of hate today. (b) It is worse that being of Indian descent, I am mistaken for a Middle-eastern person and am the target of ‘mistaken identity prejudice’ (c) It is the Absolute Worst thing possible that now Indians, that too grad students in college, are going to be seen as terrorists themselves, thus providing a direct link of hatred towards us :-(

This is just a horrible piece of news. I wish every desi in the US lived an ‘every man for himself’ life, but the truth of the matter is that our nationality and our race connect us all together, and things like this incident will scar our race beyond repair… and I as well as all my desi friends will have to be prepared to face the consequences of this one man’s stupidity.

  1. The only worse thing I can imagine is desi CS majors indulging in cyber terror :(

  2. That day isn’t too far away at all, and in fact sounds a lot more possible than this Anthrax/Bomb business!
