SFO Worst Airport for Turbaned Travelers, Says Report

India West, Posted: Jun 01, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO A report card issued by the Sikh Coalition says San Francisco Airport is the worst for turbaned travelers reports India West. The Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based civil rights organization, received 80 complaints of secondary headwear searches between Dec. 1, 2007 and March 31, 2008. More than one-third of those incidents occurred at SFO. Neha Singh, of the Sikh Coalition says SFO airport officials seem to have interpreted Transportation Security Administration guidelines as mandatory screening procedures for people with turbans. A TSA spokesman said the large number of complaints was due to the large number of Sikhs in the Bay Area and their screeners use the same policy whether its for turbans or baseball caps.
