Not discrimination its security measures. These issues do not need any protest. they have to let them smuggle gold as to which they would be happy. Understand the fact.

The people have to come out of their views. Never behave like a Koop Manduk(A frog in a Well). Co-operation is very important. Never link these issues with the community.

MIA is not ill treating or humiliating any passengers. It is the cheap thinking making them feel so . The officers never check the passengers on the basis of the community.

The custom officers are doing their duty. Most of the people held in the Gold smuggling are from Kasargod. To avoid any thing as such they are doing so.
