TOPIC: Merely a “Lip Service”!

Merely a “Lip Service”! 6 years 8 months ago #84

After last week’s humiliating episode of racial profiling wherein Amritinder Singh was forced to take off his turban at Milan airport due to security concerns; even as the Italian media condemned the incident, the Italian Golf Federation wrote a letter of apology to top Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh's coach while the Italian Ambassador expressed “regret”.
On March 15, in a repetition of the same incident; Amritinder was forced by the same security official at Milan’s very same airport to remove his headgear.
Subsequently, India has denounced the unpleasant affair stating that dishonour to the Sikhs is a national insult. External Affairs Minister S M Krishna has given assurance that the issue would be taken up with Italy.

It’s really shameful! Although Amritinder informed the security personnel that as per the European Union rules, he the turban can be patted down and he need not remove it, the official retorted
that he could not follow the rule as he needed to see what was inside.
Even when Amritinder showed him Italian Golf Federation’s letter of apology, the official responded that there was nothing he could do about it.

I completely understand and agree that that following security rules today’s world, is absolutely crucial. But why is the Italian government not complying with the EU rules?

They are not just any ordinary sportsmen…they important athletes respected worldwide. It is about time the Indian Diaspora raises its voice against it and the Indian government takes up the issue seriously, before it develops into a universal trend.
