39-year-old, Indian diplomat and mother of a young girl, Dr Devyani Khobragade was strip and cavity searched by US Marshals – as admitted by the US State Department and reported by both the US and Indian media, and confined to a cell with drugs addicts and prostitutes.
If this is the courtesy extended to an Indian diplomat (young lady officer representing her country and government) for a technical crime, imagine what would happen to you and me or for that matter Shah Rukh Khan, in the US of A – the land of the free (once upon a time). Though she was released on a bail bond of USD 2,50,000, her diplomatic passport has been impounded and she cannot leave the United States. Was she made an example of for somebody’s political ambitions as reported in the Indian media? Or was there a tinge of racial discrimination in the whole episode?
The Facebook page Indians against ill-treatment of diplomat Devyani Khobragade located at https://www.facebook.com/indians.for.devyani is an effort by content and news website www.newz66.com to bring home our sister and diplomat Devyani Khobragade and protest the strip and cavity search of an Indian lady diplomat by US authorities.
The aim and purpose of this campaign is to bring back our sister and diplomat Dr Devyani Khobragade (whose diplomatic passport has been seized by US authorities) and her young daughter and restore their dignity and the dignity of the nation.
