Waris Ahluwalia is not the first Indian actor to face airport racism

11 February 2016 2:54 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Indian-American model and actor Waris Ahluwalia got detained at a Mexican airport earlier this week and the Sikh man was questioned for wearing his turban. It's now happening to Indians in Sikh turbans. Earlier if you were a Khan you got questioned/ detained/ screened/scanned on airports. Irrfan Khan has gone through the ordeal on two occasions on American airports. Speaking about it to me he said, "More than the physical torture, it's the wounds of humiliation that never heal after you undergo such a horrific experience. It happened to me on two occasions. I was detained in New York and Los Angeles airport for secondary interrogation. I was outraged. I was told to quietly come into a room for questioning and identification verification. I wasn't allowed to talk. When I tried to ask why I was being treated this way, I was told to keep quiet. I wasn't allowed to use my phone. »
