    Student Amit Ahluwalia told police he was returning to Toronto to “live in a safer country” after being punched to the ground in a fast-food takeaway.

    But now the thugs who waylaid him and another student are behind bars after appearing in court.

    Amit was one of four students including two women out for the evening from Queen Mary London University college campus at Mile End.

    He tried to protect the women who the gang were molesting before rejoining his friends in a takeaway.

    SCREAMING ‘KILL’

    The gang armed themselves with bottles and stormed in after them screaming they were going to kill him.

    He fell to his knees and waited for what he described were “continuous blows from bottles and fists to his head,” said prosecutors at Snaresbrook crown court.

    Mr Ahluwalia, who has now returned to Canada, said in a statement he still suffers headaches and panic attacks from the “furious and repeated attack.”

    He told cops before leaving for Toronto: “I would like to return home and live in a safer country.

    “I keep thinking I will encounter these four again and they will kill me.”

    His friend was attacked with a bottle during the incident at the takeaway before police arrived.

    The four arrested, all Asians in their 20s from Whitechapel, Bethnal Green, Stepney and Poplar, admitted causing an affray and were each jailed for 13 months. Three had criminal records and one a police caution.

    You know, it doesn't surprise me in one way. Someone from gentle Canada would find East London seriously less friendly than where they came from. Actually, the article does not say they were Muslims, so we should be careful of conjecture! I know that area is mostly populated by Muslims, but for all we know they could have been from any "Asian" background.

    The attackers all had criminal records, this happened in the East End, and it looks like an endless story of gang activity very typical from the 1980's onward in a tough part of London. The names, ethnicities and the faces change; the conditions, causes, and the methods remain the same. Even Amit said he wanted to go back to a safer country -- that is how he sized it up. And as Dalsingh ji has said, we don't have enough information to pin it on any religious group at this time.

    These guys are more than likely Bangladeshi's (who live in that area) who tend to attack in packs, because one on one I remember them as cowards. I remember on Bricklane a Muslims skull cap being thrown around by skinheads in the 80's, and these young braveheart Bangladeshi's all looked the other way. It took a Sardar to intervene and send the skinheads packing.

    Amazing how their offspring pick on women?

    As I side note, Bangladeshi are the worst performers in terms of education, behind Afro Caribbeans in the UK.

    They really are an odious bunch who are frequently attacked by Pakistani and Sikh gangs.

    I wonder why? Are there any articles or government papers that try to get a grip on the situation. Sounds pretty bad.

    I understand. However that part of London has been known from the 1700's to be a rough section where rough types live and work people over. It started that way at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution when many people were thrown off farms and migrated to cities. The first immigrants so to speak were from rural England, followed by immigrants from France and Italy, followed by other immigrant groups --- most often they were people without education or trades who picked up work as they found it. Historically the center of activity for grave robbers, petty thieves, extortion rackets, gang organizations, drug peddling, prostitution, child abuse of every kind, kidnappers, and so forth. Many turned to a criminal life-style and bred over generations a culture of expectations. Good people are trapped there by poverty. Getting out is often seen as disloyalty. So when people struggle to get an education or a good job so they can leave, they are branded as traitors. The social pressure to be either a criminal or a victim is so strong. Soon as I saw "Bethnal Green" mentioned as the home grounds of one of the attackers my thoughts were focused. There are good people everywhere, but there is something called "a hard part of town."

    its sad when we put labels on others....thats akin to giving a dog a bad name and then hanging him..
    There are good and bad among all..its just that some have more good tahn bad and for others its the other way around...we sikhs are lucky that the essentials that the GURUS ingrained in US...make us resilient and good adaptors...1947 out of Pakistan..the SIKHS turned around so fast..no one had any time to be branded "REFUGEE SIKHS".....out of Uganda in the 1970's...and once again the almost threadbare SIKHS who were once millionaires..didnt waste any time "in REFUGEE STATUS"..but got down to hard work and soon became Britian's most affluent South Asians..Post 1984..after the most severe blow to the SIKHS from their OWN GOVERNMENT...many migrated overseas with almost NOTHING but DEBTS owed to Agents...BUT again the Sikhs proved their mettle......Sikhs in Canada..USA..all over the world may arrive "poor" BUT soon thrive due to the Work ETHICS of the GURUS.....Hard work..no sympathy, no crying over spilt milk, no welfare, no begging..no free lunch..ITS the SIKHS who provide a FREE LUNCH to millions all over the world in the GURDWARAS Guru Ka Langgar..again a Gift from Guur nanak Ji...

    The "other side" may not be so lucky...they behave accordingly...but lets not judge people harshly...
    Eks Pita Eks ke hum Barak is OUR slogan..lets live up to it...practically.

    It is statements like the one you just made that have led to a sad result. Good feelings get lost in the fog of indiscriminate anger and hatred. Please rethink your position.

    Probably because they are more of danger to themselves and other people like them to be an issue. If they ever threatened middle class white society, there would be crackdowns left right and centre.

    Plus I imagine the police are pretty busy with Al Qaeda right now.
