LAHORE (Web Desk) – A travel advisory issued by “Air China” stirred controversy due to the racist guide seeking tourists to beware from a group of people in London.
According to the details, Wings of China magazine that advises globetrotters based on their nationality and race discriminated Pakistanis, Indians and blacks and urged tourists to beware being in vicinity of these.
“London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people,” the magazine says, according to a photograph published by CNBC.
“We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling,” the in-flight magazine for Air China adds.
Air China is under fire for issuing a racist travel advisory and a mammoth of people around the world are slamming the aviation giant for the act.
Dr. Rosena Allin-Khan, Labour MP for Tooting which has one of the largest Indian and Pakistani populations in London expressed her annoyance over the issue.
‘I think that it is offensive to Londoners and I would like to see it removed. I would also like to ask the airline why they thought these precautions needed to be taken.
‘Why they feel they needed to warn people of something that is not reflective of London at all? She said.
Neither Air China nor the Chinese embassy has responded to the allegation.
