Harbhajan Singh lashes out at 'racist' Jet Airways pilot

Veteran cricketer Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday lashed out at a Jet Airways pilot for racial discrimination against a fellow Indian passenger.

The Punjab tweaker, who is currently playing for the Indian Premier League (IPL) side Mumbai Indians, took to Twitter to reveal that the pilot, named Bernd Hoesslin, "physically assaulted a lady and abused a physically challenged man" besides calling them "bloody Indians".

In a series of tweets, the off-spinner, popularly known as the 'Turbanator' hit out at the airline's pilot for disrespecting an Indian despite himself making his living on Indian soil.

"So called this Bernd Hoesslin a pilot with @jetairways called my fellow indian (u bloody indian get out of my flight) while he is earning here," Harbhajan wrote in his first tweet.

"Not only was he racist but physically assaulted a lady and abused a physically challenged man...absolutely disgraceful & shame on @jetairways."
