A video of an Indian family being humiliated by staff for allegedly stealing virtually everything from a hotel room they were lodging in Bali, Indonesia, has gone viral, indeed leaving a black mark for the Indians who are visiting foreign countries for various reasons.
The 2 minute-long video shows hotel staff scanning the luggage of the guests and removing accessories from them.
According to the clip, the family was allegedly stopped by the hotel staff after they suspected them of stealing things from the room. After rummaging through their luggage, the staff allegedly recovered items such as hangers, electronics, towel, and decoratives.
“Why do Indians do this I just can’t understand. One should maintain a certain kind of dignity and class ..What is this,” read the tweet, which has received over 90 thousand likes.
“Lakhs are spent on hotel room rental etc & then they pilfer a few items worth a few thousand only. It’s ridiculous & shameful,” one user tweeted.
There were indignations on social media as the majority of the users termed it as a shameful act.
Aren't we creating supercilious image of our nation with these petty incidents along with our supreme representative 's qualification ? https://t.co/v3TOOreFoE— Manoj Kumar Yadav (@itsmkyadav) July 27, 2019
Was shocked but not surprised to see the Indian tourist theft video. Having interned at a hotel briefly, and then with lots of friends in the hospitality business, I'm privy to some pretty bizzare stuff. And then when you travel a lot and make friends with hotel folks- more so— Gul Panag (@GulPanag) July 28, 2019
Why do Indians do such things (we are known all over the world for such actions). What is it in our social fabric and upbringing that makes us normalise cheating in everyday life? Clearly, we all know that stealing from hotel room in rampant in India. https://t.co/pQlShSk67P— Krishna کرشنا (@KrishnaSpoke) July 27, 2019

Why do people forget they represent a nation when they travel abroad or anywhere? No guilt, no shame at all! #pathetic https://t.co/15BrKQTO6s
