Harbhajan Singh takes a stand against a foreign Jet Airways pilot who racially abused an Indian Passenger!
Harbhajan Singh is one stout-hurted cricketer who is always upfront whether it be on-field or off field. This time the cricketer is leading the bandwagon against alleged racist behaviour by an expat Jet Airways pilot.
In a series of rather irate tweets, The cricketer revealed an incident of racial abuse and that too with a physically challenged person by a Jet airways foreign pilot.
Harbhajan even went on to write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding a stern action against the accused. The pilot named Bernd Hoesslin allegedly abused a physically challenged passenger who was waiting for her wheel chair for delaying the flight.
He reportedly then referred to them as ‘Bloody Indians’.”So called this Bernd Hoesslin a pilot with @jetairways called my fellow indian(u bloody indian get out of my flight)while he is earning here (sic),”
Harbhajan also added that pilot who is earning his livelihood from this very same country behaved in an outright disgraceful and shameful manner and urged the airlines to take stern action against the pilot.
“Strict action must b taken &such things should not be allowed or tolerated in r country.. #proudtobeindian let’s get together and sort this (sic),” he added.
Harbhajan expressed anguish over the fact that the pilot didn’t only behaved in a racist manner but also crossed the border of humanity by abusing a physically challenged passenger.
“Not only was he racist but physically assaulted a lady and abused a physically challenged man..absolutely disgraceful &shame on @jetairways (sic).
Harbhajan then went even a step further and tweeted Prime minister Narendra Modi to take action against the said pilot who is abusing a physically challenged passenger in this very same country. As expected the social media for furious over the row and people condemned the incident in toto.
The Jet Airways then had to issue a statement saying that the pilot has been de rostered after the incident and requisite action would be taken after the completion of undergoing probe.
