An Indian man who follows the Sikh religion is speaking out after he says he was pulled off a bus and detained for 30 hours for speaking Punjabi with another passenger. Daljeet Singh was traveling on a Greyhound bus from Arizona to Indiana when a fellow passenger falsely accused the two men of speaking Arabic and discussing a bomb threat. Fellow passengers detained the men in Amarillo, Texas, until police arrived and arrested them at gunpoint. The police also removed Singh’s religious turban and circulated mugshots of him without the turban to local media. Singh and the Sikh Coalition have demanded criminal charges against the passengers who accused and restrained him.
