Waris Ahluwalia has refused to leave Mexico until he has a conversation with the Aero Mexico officials who refused to board him on a flight to NY. The incident has gone viral worldwide enabling the spread of Sikh awareness and issue of racial profiling faced by Sikhs at airports.
Here is an excerpt of the conversation with CNN:
Christine Amanpour of CNN: What do you want to get out of this? They have obviously apologized to you [Aeromexico], but what more do you want from them?
Waris Ahluwalia: “This is a first step… I am here until we can have a dialogue about training their staff and about education – education of the Sikh religion and other religions. This isn’t about just me or just Sikhs… The conversation has to be larger.”
