Racism in the Air

I recently took a British Airways flight, and had a bad experience. I believe racism had something to do with it.

I will also not recommend MakeMyTrip.com.

From now on, I am going to patronize airlines owned by my brothers and sisters. My experience will improve, iA.

The stupid policeman in his arrogance did not realize what he was doing. He was actually shooting his own foot. Gates had every right to ask for police badge (how do you know he’s not posing? just coz he’s white?) and that hurt the ego of the arrogant man. (For some reason police in big cities of USA seem to be on steroids. Is it a hollywood effect?)

No, nothing is lost, for this is but a test.

O Lord, help us walk on the Straight Path-

The Path of righteousness, of love and compassion,

And above all, in submission to Thee.

(There aren’t many people reading this blog these days (am I becoming senile?) Those who have stuck around, please help discuss this very important issue.)

Muslims in India are very poorly represented in the upper part of the ladder of education and the upper niche of the societies due to many internal and external reasons.

Question is: what must be done to solve it and how?
