I was on my way to home. I was near National Medical Centre and traveling on a Careem bike. Rangers stopped us on the way. One of them patted us and checked. He asked him to open my bag and show the contents. We were all clean.
I was getting back on the bike when he told the rider to look at my hair. I was puzzled, and so was the rider. He then told me to stand in front of the headlight of our motorcycle. I complied and came in front of the light. I felt like I was modeling for him.
He then told the rider that looks at my crazy hair. The rider laughed and said “but he’s a Shareef Banda.” The ranger agreed, but wasn’t happy about my hair and thought I was suspicious. Because my hair were all over the place – anyone who rides a bike know that.
So, people, if you don’t want to be profiled as a suspicious person and a potential “terrorist”, make sure your hair do not look like this. Because all “terrorists” want to make themselves obvious and attention seeking, right ? Screw being low-key. Must be so good at their jobs.
By his logic, Salman Ahmed has to be the biggest suspect in Pakistan.
