Shahnawaz Hussain's US visa delayed

Shahnawaz Hussain, the BJP’s prominent Muslim face and member of Parliament, has failed to get a US visa on time for attending a UN General Assembly session as part of a parliamentary delegation, a delay which has again raised questions whether he was a victim of religious profiling.

“I was one of the five MPs who were to attend a UN General Assembly programme from October 20 to 31. Our Ministry of External Affairs  had applied for the visas.
While the other four have got their visas and are leaving tonight, I have been told there will be a delay due to administrative processing,” the former Union minister said.
