What of our (Mizoram) MP’s?
July 10th, 2007:
New Delhi, July 9: A strange tribe has Delhi police worried. Their women don’t cover up enough, they mix with no one and, officers say, their food smells so awful that it is a threat to public order.
The police have now printed a booklet full of well-meaning advice that should help these men and women blend into Delhi society despite the handicap of their “foreign” features.
What has triggered outraged cries of “social profiling” is that this group is made up solely of people from India’s Northeast.
West Delhi police, who issued the booklet titled Security Tips for Northeast Students/Visitors in Delhi last month, are now accused of treating these Indians from the hill states as if they were aliens from Timbucktoo.
My comment: Wonder if they issue such booklets to foreigners too.
