This guy was trying to fit in, bullied in school, just a troubled kid, and system failed him. Or its shows American society who is too busy with themselves and ignores what is happening around them. Immigrants feel more isolated, but these types of incidence are not isolated. System is broken, kids have access to guns, teachers and system don't take action when they see disturbing signs.
Indian families are still getting involved with kids even they are ridiculed by movies, in long run this help.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Press Release

Chicago:  A peaceful protest for highlighting AP Government's gross mismanagement of Hindu temples and to save them from destruction, is scheduled during the visit of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister,  Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy (YSR), during the reception given by TANA and ATA.

The event will take place in Chicago at Donald Stephens Convention Center (847-692-2220) on Sunday,  May 6th, at 4:30PM.  Additional information along with (optional) registration details is posted at http://www.savetemples.org/.  People needing car pool can send email to bharatmat@gmail.com.

It is a matter of deep concern that India, boasting to be the largest secular democracy and aspiring to be a member of the UN Security Council, denies its own majority community the human right of religious freedom and liberty to manage their places of worship.

The protest is to bring awareness to the alarming situation in Andhra Pradesh (AP) where Hindu temples, Institutions and Hinduism itself are illegally targeted by YSR Government crusade.  Under Hindu Temple Endowment act, about 34,000 Temples are under Govt. control. Only 18% of revenue generated is said to be given back for temples purposes, while remaining 82% used for other purposes by Govt. at their discretion. Looting, Massive sale of temple lands, Demolition, Encroachments, aggressive religious conversions in temples vicinity is occurring all over AP.  Government which is supposed to be a protector has become a destroyer that threatens the very existence of Hindu Institutions.  The World famous Tirupathi temple is specially targeted. 

YSR belongs to Christian faith and in spite of being elected overwhelmingly by Hindu population of AP,  his govt.  has been engaging in activities highly detrimental to Hinduism.  His Govt.  attempted to take over 5 out of 7 Tirumala Hills for Church and Tourism.  He is recently alleged to use Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam (TTD) money for a Hockey tournament in his parents name.  AP  Govt. appointed vice Chancellor of Padmavathi University funded by TTD has been engaging in rabid conversions and is believed to be cause of death of a Hindu student forced to convert.  He plans to reward her with honorary Legislator's position in AP Assembly.

AP Govt. allowed demolition of 10 temples for construction of a golf course.  YSR's son blew up a temple in Anantpur and his brother Vivekananda Reddy encroached on Gurukul trust lands worth crores of rupees.  While taking extra precautions to protect  Churches and Mosques with money from state treasury,  Govt. is selling or donating for various Govt. Schemes and non Hindu purposes, tens of thousands of acres of temple lands worth thousands of crores, meant for temple sustenance in perpetuity. This will  irreparably cripple Hindu Institutions.  While major chunk of temple money is transferred for various political schemes many priests are starving.  His Govt. which pays 12,000 Rs/ per pilgrims for Haj trip to Mecca, and considering proposals to pay Christians for trips to Bethelehem, imposed a 50% surcharge on state buses on MahaSivarathri day.  Most important Hindu holidays such as Sri Rama Navami are being taken off Govt.  holiday list to be replaced with secular holidays.
Areas surrounding many major Hindu Temples have become centers of intense conversion activity.  Endowment Dept. permits huge Christian prayer meeting on temple lands with advertisements in temples.
Hindus own existence is being threatened in their own homeland. Gandhiji who fought all his life for social justice & religious tolerance was true to Hindu Bhagawad Gita.  He called religious conversions by missionaries the deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth.  Selfish politicians like YSR are bent on destroying our thousands of year old Hindu Dharma and culture.

To sum up, the actions of  evangelical Christian CM YSR Govt. suggests a well designed plan to decimate Hinduism in AP through destruction of Hindu Institutions and abetting massive illegal conversions.  The entire state infrastructure is made available for encouraging these activities.

To undo the damage, Govt. must allow Hindu Advisory Councils - nominated or elected by Hindu religious Leaders and the Community to oversee the Endowment department and the TTD Board, and to provide guidance to Govt. as a first step, till denationalization is realized. This would assure a transparent and accountable management as allowed to other religionists under a democratic secular Constitution .
Readers are requested  not to just standby with the hope that nothing will happen to Hindu Dharma.  1000 years of foreign rule has resulted in loss of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangla Desh, Kashmir,  four North Eastern States are almost lost and next in line is Andhra Pradesh.  Today half million Kashmiri pandits are living as refugees in their own mother land for more than a decade and are dying in large numbers.  Please come and join this peaceful protest and show your solidarity in protecting the ancient culture from Government aggression .

<b>An emotional goodbye to Prof Loganathan, Minal</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Minal's funeral ceremony began with a nearly 40-minute puja with the reciting of several shlokas followed by the eulogies and viewing. One of the eulogies was delivered by a college friend of hers from Mumbai who spoke of how vivacious "cheerful and bubbly." 

The mourners were also provided with a program that contained several photographs of Minal, with family and friends, and contained a tribute that read: "Minu, thank you for everything -- the love, happiness and inspiration and much more that you brought into our lives."

It spoke about her 'passion for architecture, your ever adventurous spirit, your simplicity, and most of all, your intoxicating laughter.'

'You taught us to love, laugh, dream and look at the brighter side of everything. Thank you for touching our lives and always making us smile. Love you and miss you.'

After the viewing, Minal was cremated in the same funeral home while Loganathan's body was moved from the Presbyterian Church to the McCoy Funeral Home in Blacksburg, for cremation in the presence of family members only.

The people living in US society can actually "feel" the sickness now on some level. It is palpable to a growing number.

One of the most compelling things about Mr. Ames comment is how completely opposite it is from corporate media. The stream of invective aimed at Cho on TV and radio reminds me of line from Shakespeare, "Thou doth protest too much." Speaking as a teacher and father of 17 and 20-year-olds I find Mr. Ames the most reasoned and sage commentator on these rage killings among the many quick to offer the conventional tripe. I can testify that "Eric and Dylan" are called by their first names by many more than just Cho. And that the names are said with respect.

Any information, which Church, he and his family visit for guidance? Normally, for non-Christians they immediately announce mosque or temple person attends? Who was his advisor in Church?
He went to a youth group in a Korean Presbyterian Church in the States. The problem lies in the commonsense Christian psychology, which Cho apparently did not fall for. Normally these individuals would be integrated into any number of western subcultures as a part of organized revolt. Selective Mutism occurs when the child views the questions or assumptions being posed to him as absurd.

His parents turned to the church for help with his emotional problems, but he was bullied in his Christian youth group, especially by rich kids.<b> "Cho was a smart student who could understand the meaning of the Bible,"</b> recalled his boyhood pastor at Centreville (Va.) Korean Presbyterian Church, who asked not to be identified in an interview with NEWSWEEK to avoid further media inquiries. <b>But the pastor doubted that Cho believed the words.</b> In his diatribe, Cho castigates Christians—and compares himself to Jesus Christ, martyred on the cross. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

You do realize that there are american soldiers in iraq indiscriminately killing innocent people right? When they come home, no one will know or care. Because they don't care about them. So keep demonizing Cho as if he was the most deranged and evil person on this planet. I'll tell you the truth, most people don't kill other people because they have something to live for, not because they really give a f#$ <b>You seem to naively and stupidly believe that most people are moral and that is simply not true, they follow laws out of personal consequence. </b>Cho just didn't care, that's why he went on a suicide mission.........
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->I care because westerners don't care who they kill as long as it's not one of them, so why should I give a crap about them. If he was white, there would not be all this hoopla and you know it. When columbine happened, they didn't blame the kids, they just felt sorry for them and making excuses.

They don't deserve their own hypocrisy placated. When I showed them evidence of their own indiscriminate killing and human rights violations right now in iraq they deny, deny, deny, deny and get really pissed off as their true colors show, pure narcissistic selfishness. Excuse me, as I don't give pity to those who don't deserve it. Evidently Cho had them pegged pretty accurately after all.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<b>The strange existence of Ram Charan </b>
<i> What he does is hard to describe. But the most powerful CEOs love it enough to keep him on the road 24/7 and make him the most influential consultant alive. Fortune’s David Whitford reports. </i>
In these ancient animal parts of our brains, where survival calculations occur that are so fundamental even a media onslaught cannot fully dim them, we are aware of a fundamental archetype that Cho fits. We see him outside of the hand-wringing moralizing of our liberal TV anchors, outside the fat flaccid contentment of our wealthy overlords, and outside the scientific salad of psychological phrases that makes it seem like his condition was diagnosable, and not the choice of a desperate man. <b>We realize he is the predator that arrives when the prey-species becomes too fat.</b>

Much as in nature, when a species becomes prosperous and overpopulates an area to the point where it cannot feed itself, and predators arrive, <b>when humanity has grown past all logic and is heading for a massive fall, the predators like Cho appear, driven by the rage of immersion in too many useless people.</b> We bemoan how humanity is the only species that makes war against itself, but a phantom thought flits through our brain: if we are not pruned, might a worse fate await?

<b>Cho's predation is distinctive in that he was not hungry physically, but metaphysically. He was far from a culture that understood him. He had been denied the status others had, told to "go back to China" when he was young, and found himself in a school surrounded by the idle children of America's middle class. </b>This middle class is composed mostly of people who rose from poorer origins, found a way to take wealth out of society with some business or another, and now live in comfortable oblivion because they lack the foresight that people of education need. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Consequently, we get dumber and not smarter as the years pass, and more complacent because our lives lack any real meaning. <b>We are here to make ourselves comfortable, and to create a comfortable metaphysical reality, not to explore the world and challenge ourselves. </b>We are prevented from pointing out stupidity by the rules of the herd. We expand recklessly, while the population of intelligent people proportionately (and literally) decreases. Humanity is a headless stomach eating up earth and propagating itself in dumbed-down, vapid form.

This is why we get predators, and why when you turn on the news lately it is full of endless debates about the obvious. Global climate change may or may not be true, but it's obvious that if you cover a planet in concrete and fences, you kill its natural life at a time when you can't replace it with something better. <b>Our brief detour into humanistic justification has been replaced by a grim reality of future ethnic, religious and territorial conflicts. We're returning to what we were, as if nature just rebooted to see if it couldn't get rid of the junk in memory.</b>

<b>Cho Seung-Hui is part of this rebooting. </b>If we knew what was good for us, as a species, we would clone a hundred thousand Cho Seung-Huis and let them loose on society at large. Maybe we would give them hammers instead of handguns, but we would let these predators claim those whose vapidity precludes any real direction in life and thus endows them with a lack of will to live. They will preserve themselves passively if given the choice, but lack the creative ability to struggle for survival. Put in unbroken forest overnight, they would starve and freeze because their personal lifestyle choices don't lend themselves to the hard work of making fire and finding food.

The mindless chatter comes from such voices who are afraid that the obvious might be seen, and those who still have the potential for wolfhood might wake up to see how many need cleansing. If we want to avoid this kind of incident in the future, we need to stop blaming Cho and analyzing him with effete meaningless rhetoric, and look toward why this happened. <b>We can ban all handguns, cover the world in padded foam, and put warning tags on every door, but we cannot escape the inertia within. </b>As we escaped reality, we brought it back on ourselves, and if we do not face it with a bolder and braver outlook, soon it will consume us.

Fundamentalist Indian Christian Leader attacks genuine Hindu Protest in Chicago US

Newyork: Indian Fundamentalist Christian leader Sajan George, National
President of Global Council of Indian Christians GCIC
http://www.gcic.us/aboutus.htm in his recent outbursts <b>has warned the Indian Hindus in USA of dire consequence </b>reminiscent of the first crusaders who ravaged non-Christian people in Jerusalem, <b>if they go ahead with their proposed peaceful protest march against the visit of the Radical Andhra Pradesh Christian Chief Minister Samuel Rajashekara to the TANA meeting in Chicago, USA.</b>

As the world wide Hindu community is already aware of the atrocities committed by the Samuel Rajashekara and his cronies on the silent Hindus majority in his home state of Andhra Pradesh from the past 3 years. Hindus around the world are aggrieved over the repeated injustice meted out to them by people like Samuel Rajashekara who are trying to emulate the wills of Emperor Constantine of Rome to Christianize Native/Hindu people.

Sajan George does not seem to understand US laws where everyone has a right to the freedom of expression and the right to air their grievances openly without fear or favor against any form of real or perceived injustice. His threatening language exposes his inner nature and the organization that he represents, this will not go well with the American public, nor will it cut any ice with the Indian Hindu living in USA into submission to the wills of Sajan. In fact his lies and hate filled rhetoric will strengthen the will and resolve of Hindus (just as Pandavas were not deterred by the cruelty of the Kauravas).

Surprisingly Dr Sajan's views are not shared by peace loving Indian Christian leaders like Dr Benjamin who have repeatedly exposed the dangerous views of Sajan.

We need to expose fundamentalist Christian leaders like Sajan and his supporters who are doing immense damage to the age old Hindu-Christian unity in India and the world over. Instead of asking Samuel Rajashekara to stop his atrocities on Hindus of Andhra Pradesh, his lies, hate and threat will not work in this age of democracy and rule of law.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Torn From Parents, a Top Speller Vents His Anger <!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->...Kunal Sah, a 13-year-old eighth-grader, is an angry speller. He lives with his uncle and aunt at the Ramada Limited Motel in this tough former railroad town in eastern Utah. Kunal is making himself into a great speller by way of unhappiness and the immense pressure he feels to reunite his family, which was blown apart across two continents when his parents were sent back to India last year after being denied political asylum.

Something I noticed looks interesting and unexpected: for example see:ORDER AND JUDGMENT document:
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Mr. Sah was born in India in 1964 and came to the United States in 1990. He is Hindu.(1) Shortly before his entry visa expired in 1991, Sah applied for asylum, alleging that he would be targeted by Muslims in his home province, located in the southeastern part of India.

When Sah lived in India, he was active in a group called Vishwa Hindu Parishad (Vishwa). Vishwa, according to Sah, is an organization committed to Hindu nationalism. In his 1991 asylum application, Sah stated that Vishwa was "fighting to demolish Babri Mosque," a mosque in <b>southern India</b> (?!?), because "[t]his mosque is built on our sacred land." R. 148. In fact, in 1992, after Sah had already come to the United States, Hindu extremists rioted and destroyed the mosque. In his asylum application..

Sah also claims that the IJ erred by finding that Vishwa was affiliated with the BJP. Our review of the record suggests that the IJ may have indeed confused the BJP with a group called Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS). According to the State Department, there is considerable overlap among the leadership and membership of the BJP and the RSS, but "the BJP is an independent political party, and the degree of RSS influence over its policy making is not clear." R. 112. Sah acknowledged that Vishwa was linked to the RSS but did not describe any connection with BJP. ...
... Finally, the IJ found that Vishwa was affiliated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which a State Department report characterized as "a Hindu nationalist party with links to Hindu extremist groups that have been implicated in violent acts against Christians and Muslims." R. 45 (quotation omitted).

....Nevertheless, the connection between Vishwa and the RSS does not undermine the IJ's conclusion that Sah was complicit in the attempted persecution of Muslims and Christians. It is evident from the State Department's report about India that the RSS and the BJP espouse similar principles. Thus, it is immaterial whether Vishwa was linked to the RSS (as described by Sah) or the BJP (as stated by the IJ); the effect on this appeal is the same..

...What is important is Sah's own evidence about his role in anti-Muslim activities...


Don't understand why Sah would claim "asylym" here in US but understand even less why the judge would take it as an established fact as "BJP a party of anti Christians and Muslims" and any one having any relationship with these automatically has role in "anti-Muslim" activities and thus automatically can not be considered a person worthy of asylum...

Obviously I don't know the whole story about Sah (he came here in US with a student visa why didn't he apply for visa instead of asylum ?) and IMO he had bad legal representation etc ...but the Judge's statements etc makes me wonder how competent and fair these judges are..)
Lawyers normally suggest asylum to illegal. On TV, I have seen Sikhs claiming prosecution by Hindus in Punjab, Muslims claiming prosecution by Hindus in Delhi, and Christians and OBC claiming prosecution by Brahmins. This was shown in one of the illegal immigration issue programme 2-3 years back.
People here do believe Brahmins are worst human being after or par with Hitler, thanks to Secular media and reservation policy. Average American have no clue about rest of world, forget about India.
In one of the case in People's court, one Latino lady filed a case against shopkeeper/Tailor who lost her expensive purse, which she left in shop to emboss "OM" on it. Judge was shocked and said, I thought "OM" is only for Yoga sound, never heard that you can spell it or somebody can write.
