On Thursday morning, a 32-year-old Indian engineer, Srinivas Kunchubhotla who was working at the Garmin headquarters in Olathe was shot dead by a 51-year-old accused Adam Purinton who reportedly shouted ‘get out of my country’ before pulling the trigger.

He also shot another Indian, Alok Madasani who was injured and was immediately taken to the hospital.

Get out of my country? Really?!

That’s what you say in a country that is home to 2.5 million Indian immigrants, in a country where from a cabbie to the CEO of world’s biggest company is an Indian! The Olathe Police Chief Steven Menke called it a ‘tragic and senseless act of violence’, while President Donald Trump has chosen not to respond at all. Just a few hours before this incident, Trump posted a tweet saying, “Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago. What is going on there – totally out of control. Chicago needs help!”

During his first solo interview since becoming the President of United States, Donald Trump told the media that he is the least racist and anti-semitic person but his actions speak otherwise. It’s almost like the President of the United States is living an alternate reality and is not ready to accept the wrongdoings around him. What he needs to realize is that today it was two Indians who were attacked and tomorrow it can be two Americans.

The problem isn’t the immigrants, neither is it the Muslims; the problem is the negative elements who are trying to spread violence and fear.

The President of world’s most powerful country should let them know that he won’t accept any criminal action like this instead on conveying that he won’t take any action like this from a ‘section of the society’.
