Singer Adnan Sami's staff were allegedly called "Indian dogs" at the Kuwait airport. Sami, who is of Pakistani origin but granted Indian citizenship, took to Twitter to vent his ire at the Kuwaiti authorities.
Sami, who was in Kuwait for a live performance, tagged the External Affairs Minister in his tweet which said "Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff for no reason". Sami had also tagged Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
"We came to your city with love and our Indian brethren embraced us with it. You gave no support. Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff for no reason and called them 'Indian dogs'! When you were contacted, you did nothing! How dare the Kuwaitis behave like this with arrogance," Adnan tweeted.
Sushma Swaraj acknowledged Adnan's message, and asked him to "Please speak to me on phone." Adnan thanked her for the "ever so prompt reply", reported Hindustan Times.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju also responded to Sami's tweets and wrote, "Sorry to learn that @AdnanSamiLive. Our most dynamic EAM @SushmaSwaraj ji has acknowledged your matter. Pls speak to her now."
Sami responded to this and tweeted, "Thank you so much for your concern my dear. @SushmaSwaraj is a lady full of heart & she is in touch with me & is looking after our people.. I'm so proud that she is our foreign minister & looks after us all over the world."
