“I offered to shake his hand, to convey the repulsiveness to an end. That is the point at which he punched me, and thumped my turban off my head.”
This is Navjot Sawhney, a London-based engineer who is at present travelling through Europe.
While halting over in Poland for the weekend, Sawhney went to a club called Shakers with a couple of his companions.
While every one of his friends were permitted to enter the club, he wasn’t. As per him, the bouncer said that since he was wearing a turban, it implied he was a “terrorist”.
“All of my friends with whom I was going to the club – including my closest friend Steve (a white, British student) – were allowed entry,” Sawhney told “Only I was turned away. When I inquired as to why, the bouncer told me it was a direct result of my dress code. Steve pointed out that he and I were dressed one and the same. The bouncer answered that I was wearing a turban, and that implied I was a terrorist.”
After a conversation with the bouncer and an endeavor to end the circumstance, the bouncer punched Sawhney, bringing about his turban tumbling to the ground.
“I offered to shake his hand, to convey the repulsiveness to an end,” Sawhney said. “That is the point at which he punched me, and thumped my turban off my head.”
Sawhney composed a Facebook post about the episode that has been a few thousand times.
It also accumulated the attention of the Polish embassy in London, which guaranteed Sawhney it would investigate the matter.
A couple of days after his first post, Sawhney composed another in which he expressed gratitude toward every one that bolstered him and the Polish embassy. He additionally attached an apology from the club.
“I cannot sufficiently express how grateful I am,” he continued, explaining that it was the support from Polish people and others all around the world that made the difference.
