    Now many would say that this is racist. But this is no different to how the police blasts the students in the south.

    This was how the trouble started I'm 1974 beating the students. In any country beating students is very dangerous.

    officials must work to establish the peace in the country. what they were doing here is not acceptable at all. they are students after all.
