The green passport as we all know isn’t much respected around the world. Islamophobia aside Pakistanophobia is a league of it’s own, all Muslims have to go through humiliatingly thorough checking at airports every time they are traveling overseas that checking becomes even more humiliating if you carry a Pakistani passport because well all Pakistanis are terrorists as we know.
When it comes to interrogations at airports even celebrities aren’t immune to it, from Pakistani British actor Riz Ahmed to Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan everyone has and still goes through the process every time they travel because they are Muslims. Shah Rukh Khan often jokes about these experiences by saying,
I mean the guy is so sick and tired of the Islamophobia that he made an entire freaking movie on the topic and named it ‘My Name Is Khan’. After mega stars like Riz and Shah Rukh the latest addition to the list of celebrities, who talked about their humiliating experiences at airports, is our very own Saba Qamar.
Saba Qamar was recently on a TV show when she broke into tears while narrating her story of being detained and interrogated only because she was carrying a Pakistani passport.
