The hate crime of Kansas which killed Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Injured Alok has been gaining voices gradually in both the countries. Indian and US friends and colleagues along with family members have joined a peace march, a vigil for the departed Srinivas.
Taking the issues of H-1B visas and the Kansas shooting incident, Foreign Secretary Jaishankar has visited the US and took the issue to the White house. Donald Trump has not responded on the issue in person, though. He has conveyed his message through his Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
He said that hate crimes wouldn’t be encouraged in the country and that they protect the citizen’s freedom in choosing and following their religion also that there is no space for violence based on religion and ethnicity.
Spicer did not speak on the action to be taken in case of Kansas shooting, but he addressed the issue as hard, said that he has been asked about the story in kansas, and that the reports on the incident are disturbing.
