Sikh Man thrown out of the que at Wimbeldon


LONDON – The incident happened on last Friday when a 20-year-old Sikh man was thrown out from the que at Wimbeldon. He went to London to watch the Tennis championships.

The tennis lover showed her anger towards the issue and raised voice over Facebook. He said that, “it was an act of racism”.

On Friday, he complaint about how he was treated in the que and  alleged that, "Kicked out of the overnight camping line for centre court Wimbledon line 'because you make some people around you uncomfortable, so we're gonna have to report you and ask you to leave immediately, sir'".

"Post-Brexit racism and the overt rise of neo-facism. Please advise how best to report this," he said.

"I felt awful. I felt like I should've fought and negotiated but I backed down and silently left. I don't feel like I'm ever going back now. It's still one of my favourite tournaments but can no longer definitively say it's a lifelong dream to play on centre court," he said.

Many people have commented on his post and said that, “a case of discrimination must be filed against him.”

A Wimbledon spokesperson said: "We can confirm that a gentleman was asked to leave the queue at 4.42am this morning (Friday) after a number of complaints from his fellow queuers about his behaviour."

"We do acknowledge, however, that in this instance the event safety staff could have provided a better explanation to him. Happily, the same person has been in the Grounds today (Friday) watching the tennis," he said.

Sikh man asserted that he was unnescarily thrown out of the que. Moreover, he said that I had not done anything wrong that would warrant being escorted off the grounds, loud or aggressive.
