Shah Rukh’s detention at US airport hints racial profiling

Shah Rukh Khan’s recent detention at Los Angeles created big news, and it is considered as a repeated insult to him. This is not the first time what happened to him, it happened with him for the 3rd time. He tweeted to express his concern by saying security check at immigration is ok but every time it’s happening to make him feel targeted.

In 2009 he was detained for the first time when he went to US to promote his movie “My Name is Khan”.  My name is khan is a movie Shah Rukh promoted from his core as he was pissed off the way Muslims were treated in US after 9/11. 

In 2012 he was once again detained when he went to US to address students at Yale.

This time in 2016 made things upset for Shah Rukh Khan, hey US security guys all Khans are not terrorist.  US should give up its stereotypes based on names ending with Khan. This is not only for muslims but also for brown people.

US Ambassador to India, Richard Verma tweeted back saying that he will ensure that this will not happen to Shah Rukh Khan again but what about others?

Some of Indian’s famous celebrities and high positioned officials were detained in US in the past. You may take the example of former president of India APJ Abdul Kalam.

Indian diplomat Hardeep Puri was detained when he denied taking off his turban during security check.

India’s ambassador to the US, Meera Shankar had to gone through security check by the security agents.

Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, U.S. Department of State Nisha Biswal tweeted that even American diplomats go through extra screening.

“Rules are rules” and it’s for everyone is a mantra for US security and there is no exception for anyone. This is what the US has been professing and racially profiling the Non-whites. It is very difficult to say if these security procedures are just for the sake of security or for insulting people of other race.
