Surat drill – 'terrorists' made to wear Muslim skull caps

Gujarat CM Anandiben Patel apologised for the faux pas made by the Surat police whose terrorist dummies were made to wear skullcaps during a mock drill. The president of the Gujarat minority cell, Mehboob Ali Chishti made the comment that real terrorists do not go about wearing skull caps, and the police should not relate terrorism to followers of any particular religion. A defensive SOG Inspector said the mock drill participants were told to wear skullcaps only to differentiate them. It was not an intentional move to pinpoint any community.
