After SRK, Omar goes through multiple checks after landing in US


Omar AbdullahAfter actor Shahrukh Khan, National Conference leader Omar Adullah spent as many as two hours in the holding area after landing in the US going through several immigration checks.

Abdullah said that he was growing tired of the extra immigration checks. In another tweet, Abdullah said, “I just spent two hours in a holding area & this happens EVERY time. Unlike @iamsrk I don’t even catch Pokemon to pass the time,” a reference to actor Shahrukh Khan, who was “detained” in August at the Los Angeles airport.

He tweeted “I’m here to speak at an event organised by New York University (NYU) I’d stayed at home instead… That’s two hours well and truly wasted!!”

He is scheduled to speak at an event at NYU on October 21. Among those who are likely to attend the event include former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy.

Such a thing has happened after the US speaks of having close relations with India and how India was important in the global set up. It also recently rebuked Pakistan for carrying on with cross-border terrorism against India.
