Shahrukh's Detention

Sharukh was recently detained for two hours at an airport by yanks; the Khan name, you know. India was outraged; Twitter was abuzz, the “aam aadmi” tweeting too. Excerpts of an imaginary tweet exchange:

Pir Sanghvi: What's the point of electing a President called Hussein if officers think Khan is a terrorist name?

Ambika Koini: We'll do to Bill what the Americans have done to Shahrukh

Barkha Futt: Shahrukh's was revolting religious profiling. Muslim name equals Suspicion

Aam Aadmi: Al Gore was also held for questioning. What's the big deal?

Pir Sanghvi: @aamaadmi That is because his name sounds Muslim, like Al Jazeera, Al Qaida, Al Pacino.

Barkha Futt: Obama should invite SRK for a "beer summit"

Ambika Koini: When Obama comes to India, we will not name a platter after him in Bukhara. Can't do more, can we?

Abhilasha, this is the first comment on this blog. I am glad it is yours.

I read those RTs and the idea started taking shape in my mind. A serious post on the subject was not on.
