India anger at Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan detention


Sharukh Khan Again Detained in USA _59633499_59633496 Khan is Bollywood's top star

India has reacted angrily to the detention of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan by US authorities for 90 minutes at White Plains airport near New York.

This "policy of detention and apology by the US cannot continue", External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said.

The actor arrived on a private plane and was on the way to Yale University for a function when he was stopped.

US customs and border protection authorities later expressed "profound" apologies for the incident.

The spokesman for the US embassy in Delhi, Peter Vrooman, also apologised "if Mr Shah Rukh Khan experienced an inconvenience or delay".

It is not clear why Khan was detained at the airport, which serves New York City.

In 2009 the actor was detained for two hours at Newark airport and was released after India's embassy in the US intervened.

The actor said then that he was stopped because he had a Muslim name. US customs officials denied that Khan had been detained, saying he was questioned.
'Uncalled for'
"Apologies from America have become mechanical," Mr Krishna said on Friday.

He also asked India's ambassador in the US, Nirupama Rao, to lodge a protest with Washington.

All that the US immigration authorities need to know about Shah Rukh Khan, they can find it at the touch of a button”
End Quote Javed Akhtar Musician
Member of Parliament Rajeev Shukla said the detention was "totally uncalled for".

The Bollywood film industry has also come out in support of the actor.

"All that the US immigration authorities need to know about Shah Rukh Khan, they can find it at the touch of a button," musician Javed Akhtar said.

Earlier, the Press Trust of India news agency reported that Khan was stopped and questioned for more than two hours before being cleared by immigration officials on Thursday.

He was freed after Yale University officials contacted homeland security and customs officials, the BBC's Salim Rizvi in New York said.

"Khan was very, very upset over the episode," the CNN-IBN channel said, quoting unnamed sources.

Later, he told the students of Yale University that he had been stopped and questioned at the airport.

But, he made light of the incident and joked about it.

"Whenever I start feeling arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to America. The immigration guys kick the star out of stardom," he said to laughter from the audience.

"They [immigration officials] always ask me how tall I am and I always lie and say 5ft 10 inches. Next time I am going to get more adventurous. [If they ask me] what colour are you, I am going to say white," he said.

Khan has appeared in more than 70 films and is considered one of India's most recognisable and popular celebrities.
Other incidents
There have been several incidents in the past of prominent Indian officials being stopped or frisked at US airports.

In December 2010, the US expressed regret after India's then-ambassador Meera Shankar was pulled out of an airport security line and frisked by a security agent.

Some reports said she was singled out as she was wearing a sari.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was concerned about the incident and vowed to prevent a recurrence.

And in 2009, America's Continental Airlines apologised to former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam for frisking him before he boarded a flight to the US.

Members of India's parliament were outraged after it emerged that Mr Kalam had been frisked and made to remove his shoes at Delhi airport in April.

Protocol exempts former presidents and other dignitaries from such searches

There were 1000s of Indians were delayed at US airports but Indian Government was never concerned about them. But Once Khan was detained they Jump & voice for him. WHAT MAKES KHAN SO SPECIAL FROM REST OF INDIANS? Is that because he has lots of money & blind fans of him.

At east for two hours he may have felt that he is also an ordinary citizen in this world and not a GOD.

I do not agree with the sort of treatment at US airports but that is sometimes applied to their own citizens too.

I guess Mr Khan may never have approached an immigration counter in India Smile

That is the fact.
Even in our country so many are in Negombo Prison detained for Forged document or visa cases, but what happened last week with Kumar case?
Politics my friend.
Better to concentrate on another subject rather than defending our policy of human rights and comparing other government policy of human rights.

Yes you are million time correct.
In JVP period we went to Geneva to submit evidence regarding human rights abused by the government who were in the power.
Politics my friend.
To defending our human right policy or showing we are genuine is completely waste of time.
Happy new year my friend.

If you have a Muslim name and go to USA you can have a free body check up, and if you mention the name "Al Quieda" you can have a free colonoscopy.
