Mobile app to fight US airport profiling

Sikhs simplify way to report discrimination after ethnic minorities complain of extra screening.

    In the wake of the 11 September, 2001 attacks on the US, some ethnic minorities have been subjected to extra screening at airports in the country. 

    To help solve the problem, a group of Sikhs living in the US have developed a mobile application that makes it much easier to file a complaint in the case of racial profiling by security personnel.
