Yet another incident. After a series of restaurants, it’s now a mall refusing entry to someone.
A man wearing a dhoti and kurta was not allowed to enter Quest Mall in Kolkata today.
“Apparently wearing dhoti or lungi isn’t allowed in this particular mall anymore”, Debleena, a Kolkata-based actor, wrote in a Facebook post.
She added that “this form of racial profiling has induced in our society so much that it’s disgusting.”
“The guards outside (the Quest mall) stopped him and confirmed with someone over the Walky-talky and then let him enter only because the man in question argued in “English”. When inside we approached the management team there and the man clearly stated that they don’t allow people wearing dhoti and lungi to enter,” she wrote.
She further said, “..more when the manager of the place (some woman) came in and sat down to talk asked me strictly that I cannot video record anything even though I clearly have the right to record anything in a public space. That’s when we decided it’s best to leave the place to rot….. I will not keep quiet anymore and will question the authority!”

Similar Incident happened a few months back in a restaurant called Mocambo in Park Street, it denied entry to a driver of a foreigner. Incidents like this are increasing where racial profiling is done in malls and restaurants.
