Sydney Morning Herald report on this week's magazine cover story:
IT IS a magazine cover that will make the hearts of Australian university bosses and diplomats sink.
"Why the Aussies hate us" screams the cover of this week's influential Indian news magazine Outlook.
The editor-in-chief of Outlook, Vinod Mehta, defended the coverage and denied allegations that the Indian media were overreacting. He told the Herald: "We sent two correspondents to Australia and they found that an overwhelming number of these incidents were racial and they found that Indians in Australia live in fear. There is tremendous outrage in this country. I don't think the Australians realise that."
Mr Mehta said one reason for the anger was the "smug and superior attitude of the Australian government for denying there was racism and then telling the Indians not to hype this up".
Mr Mehta said he published the story with great regret.
"I like Australia a great deal but you have to see there is a problem, and by denying it you won't get anywhere."
