4 Sikhs allegedly deboarded cause a lady felt threatened from them

Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:26 pm

I don't know the flight # or airline but apparently in this video a woman claims she got 4 sikhs deboarded becuase she felt threatened (for no reason at all)
https://twitter.com/SikhProf/status/1107419323176546304

Can someone please share more details about this? Including, which airline was it which allowed this (if true) ??

This is the kind of hate which leads us to NZ like incidents

IF true (as always there are 3 sides to a story), why not deboard the woman?

Exactly. If she's so scared, she could have request not riding on the same flight with the Sikhs, and deboard herself.

Well, either that, or the woman need some safe space, b/c the world is a very dangerous place.

I guarantee she thought they were Muslims. Seems like most bias towards Sikh people is because ignorant folks don't know they're not Muslims. I mean, come on, if you're going to hate a whole group of people, at least know who those people are and are not.

This woman was Sikh in the head.

She's right of course. If she's scared, she's scared. Perfect logic. She doesn't fit the Trump demo though.
But what happens next in the saga of "Justice in the Age of Social Media" is another story. A foulmouth like her is the squeaky wheel, decency be damned.

Not much information to go on here, so hard to say what happened. In my opinion, it would be appropriate to see both parties be deboarded. If not, this will keep happening.

Out of interest, why would you deboard the Sikhs if all we read is true. Flying while Sikh is yet to be a punishable offense.

This is definitely a United 737. What a sad story. If she was upset, she should have been removed.
On behalf of your entire Boston based crew, thanks for flying with us today.

My opinion is that the Airlines need to adopt a policy that if a person is uncomfortable with other passengers on board. That is the person deborded, and rescheduled for another flight.

That will end almost all of this issue in a short period of time.

Have a great day,

Attention passengers. If anyone else is so unevolved that they are uncomfortable with these folks, and prefers to cool it in the terminal for an indeterminate period waiting for availability on a flight to get to your destination, possibly messing up your meetings, hotel and dinner reservations, inconveniencing those who will be meeting you at the other end and so forth, kindly deplane immediately. Didn't think so. Enjoy the flight.

Ok, I'll bite and play devil's advocate here. And, since I am not at work, I don't have to worry about IT or my publisher yumping on me for my lack of professionalism in my reply.

Now, I won't speak for the rest of the world, but in the US, college and workplaces over the past decade have leaned to create "safe spaces". A safe space is a place or environment in which a person or category of people can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm. (This for anyone who is not up to par with modern America PC culture)

Problem with this new fangled philosophy is that it can go both ways. Safe spaces are not limited to liberal or left leaning ideologies to create a magical shield to protect them from conservatives or right wingers. The guys on the right get to use that same argument.

However, from what I read of the Twitter post, this woman who demanded the Sikhs be kicked off could very well be the head of the DCC and has as much fear of them as my wife does of the neighbor's poodle. And critical thinking tells not to blindly accept a random twitter post with little to no context other than the person who's filming opinion is.

Now, I don't belong to either the right or left ideologies of American culture, being Japanese-American and having spent half my life going between the two countries, but the way I see this, is what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Personally, as an old stubborn man, I would just de-board both parties. Now get off my lawn before I turn the sprinklers on you all.
Now get the hell off of my lawn your dang kids!

Generally, airlines will not release full information about passengers being de-boarded due to the legal/bad publicity implications, so anyone who gets kicked off a plane can make up a story about the reason. Most of these cases just die down after a while without any charges being filed. I really would like to hear the other side of the story in this case.

Like I say each time this happens, How about deboarding the offended person since they are so triggered by a different ethnicity
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

I was speaking in general, sorry if I came across as siding with either party. I have Sikh friends, who are among the nicest people I know.

I don't know what happened here. I just feel it's far too easy to complain and have someone kicked out. This will force people (accuser and airline) to pause and think before ejecting pax.

No actual confirmation the Sikhs were removed other than this disgusting persons claims, I highly doubt the airline would have removed them.

Like most things in life, there's a lot of nuance and history behind this. Lets just say the last years of her administration had a lot of controversy with much of it involving the Sikh community in Punjab. Much of that has little bearing on the day to day lives of Sikhs.

I would not be surprised. Until today, I've never heard of an Instagram comedian. That tells me she's not good enough and has to result to social media, Perhaps she should watch Mrs. Maisel to see how it's done.
I have been on this site 15 years. A unrecoverable email account led me to starting over. Those of you who call me a rookie, you may stop ok?

As a former captain, I would have given her the option to deplane. I'm sure the airline would have offered her a later flight.

Nobody is getting the irony. We’re ready to jump down the throat of a women’s overreaction to something she clearly doesn’t understand about Sikhs, but not allowed to call out the same type of ignorance of history by a poster when he/she claims “Sikhs are a very peaceful group,” when clearly they are not always.

There’s a reason why Sikhs carry kirpans.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirpan#History

Doesn’t make them more or less peaceful than any person. Instead of chastising, why don’t we try and educate.

The problem is that these days when a woman "feels" something (regardless of whether that feeling is justified), it's Captain Saveaho* to the rescue (*probably not the captain's real name). If a man "feels" threatened then people will ask if he was actually threatened, which they should.

The way I read it, the Sikhs deboarded themselves because the woman felt threatened. They were entitled to stay on board, but decided against it. It seems those Sikhs prevailed the womans comfort over their own.

Sorry for the potentially ignorant question, but did this kind of stuff always happen or is this one of the great things of this decade? I know that in the last 5-6 years with technology booming we get to see all of the stuff that always happened but we never knew about, but is this truly one of those cases?

Also for the people ''attacking'' per se, the group of people involved in this incident on the basis of bombings and assasinations, I guess that means all Muslims are bad too because of 9/11 and ISIS, all whites are bad as well because of Columbine, Christchurch and Las Vegas, and in general going by your logic I guess that means there isn't a single damn good person on this earth. So maybe instead of generalizing and racially profiling minorities based on extremist groups we should get our facts straight. Just an idea.

As a young white child in the deep south in the 1970's, I was exposed (indirectly, listening through walls when I was supposed to be elsewhere) to some of the most horrific descriptions of "those people" I could ever have imagined. Group after group, time after time, referred to collectively as being an insult to the existence of "real" people. One conversation even included references to the idea that the people of the Middle East and South Asia were, to be diplomatic, "the same as Africans with the addition of a common substance found in deserts".

To my knowledge, none of this talk ever led to anything, but the xenophobia so rampant in U.S. history that I sort of assumed was on its way out was here to stay.

After 9/11, many Sikhs were attacked and killed, with the entire community being lumped into the category of "them". Worse yet, instead of being horrified by it, many people said, "well, it's a tough time for all of us!", as if that excused the violence against any community - much less a community that had NOTHING to do with it at all - was justifiable.

And still it continues. A woman on a red-eye flight out of San Diego is scared because she "heard passengers speaking Arabic". The flight turns around and is cancelled. How much did that cost the airline to kowtow to one frightened snowflake? And Lord knows, we've all heard of "Pool Patrol Paula" and "Barbecue Becky" - delicate snowflakes who are horrified at the sight of other people living their lives.

As furious as I would be with the (fill in your favorite expletives here) "woman" in question, I would be more horrified by an airline that is setting itself up for a MASSIVE discrimination lawsuit because one terrified woman can't stand the thought of diversity on her airplane. The Sikhs need to sue the woman personally, and name the airline as a co-defendant. If it is this moron's God-given white...err, excuse me, "right" to be terrified of "others" and demand they leave her airplane, then it is her God-given right to have her @$$ sued off in a court of law.

A comedian in the 80's put it best: "I despise prejudice. I despise hatred. I just don't understand how ANY rational human being could hate an entire group when there are so many legitimate reasons to dislike people on an individual basis!

It seems those militant Sikhs were part of a separatist movement. More to do with disputes with the government of India than religion.

The religion does have very peaceful teachings but leaves a caveat open for self-defense. It does not however encourage violence against non-believers, like some religions may be interpreted as saying.

I am generally pretty appalled how people bigoted towards Muslims can't even get their bigotry right though. If that isn't proof of the ignorance behind it, I don't know what is.

Totally agree. It's like when anyone right of Michael Moore is branded the 'far right' and are blamed for terror attacks.

It is pretty hard to think of a religion that a) doesn't have peaceful teachings that also b) doesn't lend itself to a quick twist that makes it justify violence...
Jebus didn't even allow self defense and how peaceful has Christianity been?

Like I say each time this happens, How about deboarding the offended person since they are so triggered by a different ethnicity


While obviously right, you want people to report suspicious things, and that is about as subjective as it gets, so you may end up debording the person crying wolf... people may stop doing that, even if they have real reasons.
While I am sure that cry can be evaluated quite well, in social media details may get lost for the general public.

..and one that justified the genocide with Christian doctrine on top of it, while correctly assessing it was an unforgivable sin that could never be explained or understood. That is why there is so surprisingly little documentation, as it was never planned to have a lasting record.

Close to all of his henchmen where good, faithful Christian's too.....

There will always be good people.doing good and evil people.doing evil, but it will always take religion* to make good people do evil.
