New White Australia Policy
Apartheid Australia violating human rights
In 1901 one of Australia’s first acts as a nation was to introduce the so-called White Australia policy to exclude non-Europeans from Australia, this including forced repatriation of Melanesian slaves and their progeny and complete cessation of centuries old family and commercial links between Indigenous Australians and Indonesia. This racist policy was abolished in 1974 but now race-based laws and regulations have returned Australia to being an Apartheid state. There is now a New White Australia Policy.
Prashant Cherkupalli is not the first Indian studying in Australia to have been illegally detained by Australian authorities. Thus Dr Muhamed Haneef (born 29 September 1979) is an Indian doctor who was doing specialist training in Australian when he was wrongly accused by incompetent and paranoid Australian authorities of aiding terrorists. He had stayed with a cousin in the UK who was in turn connected to some people involved in a violent but victim-less incident at Glasgow Airport. Dr Haneef had given what remained of his UK mobile phone SIM card to his relative on leaving the UK, this $20 gift being regarded by the Australian authorities as evidence of financial support for terrorism. Dr Haneef was imprisoned for nearly 4 weeks, was threatened with imprisonment for 15 years under Australia’s draconian anti-terrorism laws and had his visa revoked. Dr Haneef subsequently successfully sued the Australian Government for substantial damages.
Australia has a notorious record of active racism, mainly directed at Indigenous Australians, Asians and non-Europeans in general. . Australia has been involved in 24 genocidal atrocities, of which 10 are ongoing and the first being the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide that commenced with British invasion in 1788 (9,000 Indigenous Australians die avoidably each year out of an Indigenous population of 0.5 million). Of course Australia has almost completely white-washed these ongoing genocidal atrocities out of general public perception. Thus Australia was complicit in the British mass murder of 6-7 million Indians in 1942-1945 by withholding wheat from the starving millions of Bengal and adjoining provinces during the WW2 Bengali Holocaust (Bengal Famine). However Australian historians have, with a few exceptions, completely deleted from history this WW2 atrocity, Australia’s secret genocide history in general and even how Australia was originally colonized in 1788 to serve as a support base for British naval and military operations for the defeat of the French in the conquest of India.
Indian or indeed any other students studying history in Apartheid Australia will almost certainly get a holocaust-ignoring, holocaust-denying version that ignores, for example, the 1.8 billion Indians who died avoidably from British-imposed deprivation in the 1757-1947 Indian Holocaust and Indian Genocide under the British. Australia has a new, universally-employed catch-phrase “moving forward” that means more of the same (the rabidly capitalist 1% violating the 99%) while conveniently ignoring the past (see my book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History. Colonial rapacity, holocaust denial and the crisis in biological sustainability”).
Importantly, prospective students must also be made aware of the Australian White Australia Policy (1901-1974) which effectively excluded Indians and other non-Europeans and from Australia but was enacted in a sneaky, secretive fashion to minimize offence to the hundreds of millions of non-European subjects of the brutal, racist British Empire.
