High profile skilled professionals have less privileges to fly certain higher types of aeroplanes as signified in the article below. It can be any field including media, where a Pakistani could be easily denied the basic right to do just anything in particular to high profile skill career jobs!

Supreme Court sides with Bombardier in pilot discrimination case

OTTAWA -- Canada's highest court has sided with Bombardier in a discrimination case that originated south of the border involving a Canadian pilot.

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that the Montreal-based company did not discriminate against Javed Latif, a Canadian of Pakistani origin, when it denied him a training course on one of its jets.

It's the first time the high court has heard a discrimination case based on allegations of racism stemming from a decision made by a foreign authority.

In 2004, Bombardier refused to provide training to Latif, who held valid lifetime pilot's licenses in Canada and the United States, because U.S. authorities declared him a threat to aviation security.

He had applied to take a training course offered by Bombardier in Texas after he was offered a job to pilot a Challenger 604. At the same time, he applied for a security check as required by the U.S. Alien Flight Students Program.

In April 2004, Bombardier was notified that Latif had been denied permission to take the course.

Latif was never told the reasons for the denial, but four years later, the United States Justice Department lifted the restrictions.

In the meantime, though, Latif had to change jobs several times and was at one point unemployed.

Latif took his case to the Quebec Human Rights Tribunal, saying he was discriminated against based on race.

The tribunal agreed and Bombardier was ordered to pay damages worth about $320,000.

But the Quebec Court of Appeal rejected the order, saying there was no evidence that U.S. authorities denied Latif the ability to take the flight training course based on racial profiling.

While the Supreme Court agreed with the appeal court, its unanimous 7-0 decision also says Canadian companies cannot blindly obey the judgement of a foreign authority without exposing themselves to claims of discrimination.

May I give a suggestion for you? Why bother ignoring Muslims issues while living in North America & not doing anything for previous 30+ years?? Lastly are you saying what's happening in Europe or any other continent is not anywhere else ? Appreciate the honesty while being truthful to ones own please ?

Thanks for your suggestion from other part of the world. Well i was talking about specifically for North America, Being a Muslim living in North America i did not face any problem, any discrimination or any hate but fact are changing very fast, i don't know if you have read few articles recently. like "muslim free zone", "Gun-toting volunteers", "Block Muslim cemetery". This all is a reaction of some action and will increase more.

Please bro, do your homework, before coming to Siasat forums. First of all, the stories you brought to attention, are worthless as some Japanese racism in Tokyo towards anonymous!
Secondly, America is a huge country with comparison to Mexico or Canada!
Thirdly, everything inside America is fine on a scale greater than any country of earth by multiplier factor of 100!
Fourthly, you are pointing some stupid articles from social media which shows lack of your own geographic location, please do research if inside Canada not able to cross border?
Fifth, here is a map of Florida which alone has 6 huge cities with nameless county, town & small towns, not to forget market tourist attractions from all over earth. The guy you depicted has probably never gone beyond his neighborhood, than I am certainly sure there are those neighbors within your Mexico or Canada & you don't want to chat about ghettos areas?
Please stay on topic for highly professional pilot discrimination not pointing fingers of patriot's within own community!
