Detention of Shah Rukh Khan in USA

Americans seems to specialize the art of offending people. Shah Rukh Khan a leading Bollywood film star was detained by the immigration officials for two hours at Newark airport. This is not the only time Americans tried to humiliate Indian dignitaries.

Former Indian president APJ Abdul Kalam was searched and forced to take off his shoes while boarding Continental Airlines. Before these incidents former defense minister of India George Fernandes was twice strip-searched by the Americans at Dulles airport. Indian actress Shilpa Shetty was also humiliated by racists while participating in a TV program in UK.

The West does not differentiate among religions while humiliating people from non-Western backgrounds. It discriminates on the bases of race. This why it has killed millions of people around the world on the bases of race.
