'Air China' Thinks Pakistanis are Thieves and Looters

Air China, in their travel magazine, wrote a travel advice for their passengers traveling from China to London. They advised their passengers that London is a safe place except the areas where Pakistanis and Indians are living, and suggested travelers to be careful while walking by areas where Pakistanis and Indians are living.

Issue was brought into news by CNBC when they published a picture of the magazine that was distributed by Air China to tourists and International media noticed it later. The magazine says;

London is generally a safe place to travel, however, precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people.
Now this is truly a racist way of generalizing entire regions and people over social media are asking Air China to apologize immediately and a found a better to convey instructions. An image from the magazine is shown below.
