    Azam Khan frisked: This shouldn’t happen again, Indian Embassy tells US - Firstpost

    Does this idiot think that he was in India where the VIP status elevates him from the Aam Aadmi? GOI should not waste it's breath and time on such trivial issues, they have better things to do.

    Disagree with you here. While we may hate him as a politician here, he went there on an American invite holding an Indian diplomatic passport. Remove the name and the man from your eyes and focus only on that term. Indian Diplomatic Passport.

    May be US knows about his connections with you know whos from you know where....and that is why they wanted him to question further. However, India lodging complain so swiftly is SP's 20+ LS seats at work otherwise they are not bothered with anything.

    Guys, for a moment, focus on "Boston," and then think about the word "Tsarnayev."

    Should not surprise anyone.

    You beat me to it by one minute. :) Good thinking. Exactly the reason - the timing and place.

    UP can kid glove a few Khan terrorists, but then it will make USA think that every Khan is a terrorist. They have a ZERO tolerance for terrorism, whatever the label.

    At least muslims should give themselves a break.

    BS. There has been no link with you know who from you know where.

    He is a citizen of India and holds a diplomatic passport and was there in an invite from a prestigious institution.

    Some tweets:

    Samajwadi Party Who Politicize the Whole Namo Visa issue, today saying Insult of Azam khan is insult of Whole India.

    Azam Khan said Modi cant be PM w/o US visa. US gave Azam visa, then strip searched him & showed him what true secularism is.

    If you think USA does not have dossier of suspected terrorists of India, you are mistaken. Ditto for Israel too. Akhilesh cannot release a few muslim terror suspects, facing charges, and expect the heat not to singe his dear uncles.

    @yususf,
    1. He is a minister in UP Govt and thus does not hold a diplomatic passport.
    2. He was not a guest of the US Government but a Private University.
    3. Finally he should have reacted with dignity rather than ranting and raving like a spoiled Indian VIP. Did you hear such a behaviour from President Kalam or for the matter from the Indian Ambassador when they were frisked.

    It is people like this who give us a bad name.

    Come on people like our Netas getting extra search and scrutiny at the Airport is an insult to the nation. The insult to the nation happens when the common man has to stand in queue to get patted and checked by the CISF at the Airports these guys and their entourage ( yes their chamchas too) just breeze through the security area without any checks.

    He raved and ranted. SRK too did the same. They might be big shots here, but are not much in USA, which is paranoid by internal security.

    IIRC Al Gore who is the former VP of the US has been stopped at least twice at the Airports and given the full treatment. He has never complained and in fact has appreciated the extra care.

    For me I would feel more safe if all the passengers are frisked and none of them get the exception because of their public office.

    He was there on a private visit not a diplomatic visit.
