My concern is that why does this make headline news when these types of occurrences happen everyday around the world, because people have Muslim names. This is a very common practice in the USA, where people are questioned for hours because of technicality of names. Has the USA not upgraded its intelligence? In the case of Shah Rukh Khan, they only had to Google his name and they would have known who he was.

These types of stereo typing used to happen in the USA during the cold war and during Nazi Germany. Why has the world gone silent now?
