Washington: During the joint Congress session, President Donald Trump had opened his first remark on the killing of an Indian engineer in Kansas. He had said that America stands united in condemning all forms of hate and evil elements.
Trump had recapitulated about the Jewish community center assault, vandalism of the Jewish cemeteries, and Kansas city shooting.
While defending criticism about how insensitive he had been towards the subjects of racism and bigotry he said that: "Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our nation's path toward civil rights and the work that still remains. Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty, and justice, in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present, that torch is now in our hands, and we will use it to light up the world. I am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart."
The Hyderabad-born techie, Srinivas Kuchibhotla 32, was with his friend at the Olathe bar last Wednesday when he became the prey of the hate attack by the retired navy veteran named Adam Purinton. The man had allegedly remarked: "get out of my country" and showered bullets on the 2 Indians killing one and injuring other.
Kuchibhotla had graduated from the University of Texas and had instantly joined an American multinational firm as a consultant. Kuchibhotla’s friend Alok Madasani and a stranger named Ian Grillot were the witnesses who had tried to stop the aggressive shooter but in vein. Five hours later, the veteran shooter had been grabbed red handed by the Missouri police.
Hillary Clinton had made a telephonic conversation with President Trump on Monday to speak against the malicious attack on the Indian. She tweeted: "With threats and hate crimes on the rise, we shouldn't have to tell the President to do his part. He must step up and speak out."
