Booker Prize nominated Canadian author, Rohinton Mistry has cancelled his second half of a US Book Tour. Mistry complained of 'unbearable humiliation' due to racial profiling at the American airports. This incident also coincides with the Canadian government's recent travel advisory, to all Canadian citizens born in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Yemen. Interestingly, Rohinton Mistry is neither a Muslim nor was he born in any of the designated country.
