Then, ban European companies!

Reader comment on item: [West Africa:] New Route to the West
in response to reader comment: Racism in Europe - Laxmi Mittal Case

You are free to ban European companies from India, Africa, the Muslim world and the rest. Don't hesitate. Money and business cannot make us all slaves of this one-world global system. To be perfectly honest with you, it would be a brilliant idea to ban all European companies from India. I am tired of this greedy globalization. As for Sikhs and Muslims in Europe, they cannot expect us to adapt to their traditions. Some European nations require ID-cards, and that means that your face must be recognizable. Of course, racism is wrong and anti-immigration feeling is immoral. Immigrants should be allowed to come here on compassionate grounds, if fleeing from persecution. Economic immigrants are also fine. Nobody should be discriminated for any reasons, not for colour or creed. However, turbans and hijabs are not part of the European legal system. When in Rome, do as the Romans.
