Singer Adnan Sami has claimed that his staff members were mistreated and called "Indian dogs" at the Kuwait airport immigration. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj took cognisance of the issue.

Adnan, who was in Kuwait for a live performance, drew attention to the matter via tweets on Sunday.

"We came to your city with love and our Indian brethren embraced us with it. You gave no support. Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff for no reason and called them 'Indian dogs'! When you were contacted, you did nothing! How dare the Kuwaitis behave like this with arrogance," Adnan tweeted to the Indian Embassy in Kuwait.

People were also outraged after the singer recounted his ordeal. In fact, singer Sophie Choudry also said that she had had a bad experience in Kuwait.

Later, he also tagged External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. Sushma Swaraj acknowledged Adnan's message, and asked him to "Please speak to me on phone."

While Sushma's reply seems to have been removed now, Adnan thanked for her prompt response.

Later, when the Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju wrote to Adnan, assuring him that the "most dynamic" Sushma Swaraj was looking into the matter. Kiren's reply to Adnan also seems to be unavailable now, but Adnan thanked the minister for his concern. Here's what he said:

"I'm so proud that she is our foreign minister and looks after us all over the world," he said.
