Indian based restaurateur targeted for racist rant

Atlanta sources reported that an Indian origin restaurateur in Ashland, Kentucky, was the target of racist posts by a customer who referred to him and his family as “a tribe from India” and that he “probably just funded Al-Qaeda” by eating at his restaurant. Meanwhile Taj Sardar, the 32 year old owner of ‘The Kings Diner’ is Sikh and he told the Daily Independent he has encountered racism before in the form of rude customers suggesting that he go back to his country.

Furthermore the customer, through a Facebook post, said he reluctantly entered to order meatloaf special and was greeted by a tribe from India. As per the post “He is ashamed that he probably just funded Al-Qaeda in order to have a meal”. Moreover the post was so offensive that it soon went viral, with an outpouring of support to Sardar and his restaurant. Sardar told “He really didn’t know what to do, but thank God for the positive people in the community who saw it”.
