An Air India pilot alleged he was asked to remove his turban at an airport in Madrid, Spain on Wednesday. 


The pilot, of Air India's flight AI136, was forced to do so despite the fact that the alarm did not go off when he crossed the metal detector.

Simran Gujral, the pilot subjected to the insult has claimed this happens regularly with Sikhs at the Madrid airport and that he has not experienced the same anywhere else in the world. 


The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee president Manjinder Singh Sirsa, when he came to know about the incident, took to Twitter to address his concerns. 

He also requested the External Affairs Minister to address the issue at a global level. 

And netizens weren't far behind to support the pilot. 

Sadly no action has been taken so far against the airport authorities. Further reports are awaited.
