Sikh Football Fans Mistaken for ISIS and Refused Entry To Stadium

Verinder Malhi and his friends drove seven hours from Fresno to see Denver dominate the Chargers last Sunday where they were denied entry to the stadium.

“Three of my buddies, they had turbans on, and it (was like, you guys got to take the turbans off,” Mahli said.

They were finally allowed inside Qualcomm, but Malhi claims a security supervisor told him that if they ever come back, they cannot wear turbans.

“Everybody kind of confusing us with the turbans, because what you see on TV is mostly the terrorists they wear turbans. But our turbans is different, our faith is different our beliefs are different.”

It so happens Malhi put a bag in the car after realizing they weren’t allowed to take it in the stadium. And a by standard took a photo of a bomb-sniffing dog checking Malhi’s vehicle. Police told 10News the dog cleared the car.
