New Delhi: Harbhajan Singh is known to speak his mind and he did just that on Wednesday as he expressed his anger after a pilot of Jet Airways passed racial comment towards a passenger, physically assaulted a lady and also abused a physically challenged person on the flight.

Taking to Twitter, Harbhajan wrote: So called this Bernd Hoesslin a pilot with @jetairways called my fellow indian(u bloody indian get out of my flight)while he is earning here.

He went on to add that the pilot further assaulted a lady and abused a physically challenged passenger.

The off-spinner who recently took 200 T20 wickets in Mumbai’s last game against Pune said that strict action should be taken against the pilot as it was a disgraceful act.

Jet Airways has issued an official statement mentioning the fact that the organisation has apologised to the concerned person. The statement also mentions that fact that the pilot in question has been de-rostered pending enquiry and a decision on his fate will be taken based on the findings of the enquiry.

Harbhajan had gone on a trip with friends and family to Alibaugh and even posted a picture on Instagram which read: Trip to Alibaugh with family & friends ✌️@geetabasra #hinayaheerplaha @vishal_karia @shrey_k5 @piyush.dedhia @priyankalalwani @bhumi_dedhia @shilpa_11 @divyalsaraf @gaurav_shukla_30 @poojasinghgujral ⛱

He ended by saying that all the people in the country should get together and sort this issue and also ensure that this is not repeated.
