Bangalore, June 9 (IANS) Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Tuesday urged Indian students in Australia to stay calm and not to get provoked by attacks on them.
“Time and again, Indians have demonstrated that peaceful methods of protest have a far greater power in achieving goals than any violent acts,” the Art of Living founder said in a statement. “The Indian student community should take hope from this and use only peaceful means to redress their problems.”

Ravi Shankar’s appeal followed the alleged stabbing by Indians of an Australian after the latter abused them racially.

The latest incident followed several attacks on Indian students in Australia, mostly in Melbourne. The attacks have caused outrage in India and sparked mass protests by Indians in Australia,
