Indian Students Association invites students to Monday night vigil
December 7, 2008 7:39 PM
To honor victims of the three-day siege by terrorists in Mumbai last month, the SF State Indian Students Association scheduled a memorial vigil for 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 8.
Rasika Chaudhary, president of the ISA, invited students, staff, and administrators to join her association at the Malcom X Plaza Monday evening to share in the grief and loss of more than 170 lives.
“Most Indian students I have talked to have been able to check on loved ones in India,” Chaudhary said. Many victims of the attacks were citizens of the United States and Israel, she said, and a unified response by members of many ethnicities would undermine the presumed goals of terrorists.
“I think we were all shocked,” Chaudhary said of the attack. “I would like anyone who is scared or sad about the attacks to come and join in the vigil.”
